Saturday Word Play- Stephen King Word Search

For better or worse, many of Stephen King's novels, novellas and short stories have been made into movies. Here are some of the more memorable performances. I'll give you the name of movie, you tell me the actor's name found in the wordsearch (you don't need to tell me where!). For extra credit, tell me the role they played.

As always, feel free to do them all at home, but only answer one in the comment section, that way 10 people will have a chance to play.

1. Firestarter
2. It
3. The Running Man
4. The Shining
5. The Dark Half
6. The Tommyknockers
7. Maximum Overdrive
8. Misery
9. Carrie
10. The Green Mile

Found it! #1 is (Drew)Barrymore. She played the little girl but as for her name all I can remember was that it was like her real first name (boy/girl), Tracy or Leslie or something like that.

John Mutford said...

Raidergirl: Right! He played Paul Edgecomb.

Wanda: Correct. And she was Charlene "Charlie" McGee.

#9 is (Sissy) Spacek, who played the title role in Carrie. But I found it in the puzzle, spelled Spaceck, so maybe I didn't find the right actor after all.

John Mutford said...

Barbara: Last week I made spelling error, too. Grrr. This is why I'll never get a job in the word gaming industry. Anyway, yes, it was Spacek. I really thought I'd proofread the thing.
