The plebian is obviously and trivially Ned Beatty in Superman, although it should read "Are we going to Addis Ababa Mr. Loo-thore?"

The erudite, shockingly, turns out to be Barney Fife.

Which means the connection has somehting to do with goofy sidekicks.

You are so very correct Ray. After posting it, I actually told somebody "I should've typed it 'loo-torr.'"

Correct identifications. Going for a more solid Connection than "goofy sidekicks".

Err, Barney Fife ...
was deputy to Andy Taylor, played by...

Andy Griffith, whose...

..."What It Was, Was Football" routine is far more entertaining than an actual football game, as is....

...the bighearted football film Rudy, which costarred...

...Ned Beatty.

QED.

Oh, no, wait - the real connection is Otis.

Ted said...

Otis, indeed. Otis, Otis, Otis.

Point to Mr. Hunley.
