The Quiz with Answers!

1) Steve Park, who voiced Mike Sorayama in Past Tense, had a part in a movie where he played a character that Jackson Publick intimated was the basis for the character of Mike Sorayama on. What movie was this in?
    Fargo - Steve Park is the special guest for this episode, voicing Mike Sorayama. Probably Steve's most famous movie role was the part of Mike Yanagita in Fargo. The character of Mike Sorayama is actually based, in part, on the Mike Yanagita character, so the writers were quite happy to get him to do the part. (Past Tense notes)

Here are the rules (for reference):
  • You can enter as many times as you want, but only your last entry will be accepted.

  • The DVD is region one, so if you live outside the US or Canada you probably won't be able to watch the DVD. You can still enter though, but I wouldn't bother if you don't have a region-free DVD player.

  • You have to answer all the questions right to have a chance to win. In the event that nobody answers them all correctly then the people with the highest score will be entered in the final drawing.

  • You must enter a valid e-mail address. When I pick the winner I'm going to e-mail them and if the e-mail bounces I'm going to pick a new winner. You should also enter a name of some kind because if you don't I'm just going to make up a name for you and it might not be nice!

  • The winner will be announced before the premier of season two, so you have two weeks! I'll also post the correct answers when the winner is announced.

  • The cutoff for entering is 10:00pm EST on June 25th. After that the form will no longer submit and the winner and answers will be posted shortly after that.

  • Once I mail the DVD it's out of my hands. So if it gets lost in the mail or smashed up a bunch it's not my fault and you'll just have to deal with it.

  • By clicking the submit button you adknowledge that you have actually read and agree to these rules. If you don't like them then don't submit. Also I reserve the right to change rules or make up new ones as I see fit. Just so I have all my bases covered.
