    Not sure when Reeve was a baseball player or Cop.

    But I gave up trying to match more than three categories: no Oscar plus two - and he was an action hero and a missionary.

    OK, sorry I was alway so long. Didn't think this would draw this many responses so quickly.

    Paythrough is the winner.

    Have played, among others, a general (Gettysburg)
    A drummer (Eddie & the Cruisters
    A New York City policeman (Someone to Watch Over me)
    a fundamentalist missionary (IN the Fields of the Lord)
    a baseball player (Major League)
    a sargeant (Platoon)
    and an action hero. (The Big Chill)

    Speaking of EATC, where's Frank Ridgeway been?

    Hell, Chris Reeve is as good a guess as any. This question's buggin the hell out of me. I'd have to say Berenger, though can't say when he was ever a superhero.

    His character in "The Big Chill" played an action hero on TV.

    Weird. I've seen Eddie and the Cruisers a bunch of times and don't remember him as a drummer.

    My bad, he plays keyboards. I always screw that up.

    I've got one.
    Oscar winner.
    He's played a football player, a soldier, a fisherman and a disabled person.

    Tom Cruise comes to mind ... Football - All the Right Moves, Soldier - Born on the Fourth of the July, Disabled person ... well, the same. Fisherman? Fuck, I don't know. When he fished his dad's Porshe out of Lake Michigan in Risky Business?
