So, Duh! Pop Quiz… The Baxter Edition

Nice guys finish the second banana last.

There’s a little known movie by Michael Showalter (of The State and various other failed endeavors) called The Baxter, and according to the main character in the film, a Baxter is:

The nice, dull guy in a romantic comedy who is dumped at the end of the story for the protagonist.

This So, Duh! Pop Quiz is all about the Benjamins Baxters.  I’ll name several movies in which the Actors! were the dumpees, and you name the Actors! (HINT: One is an Actress!)

1)  Sommersby – Sleepless in Seattle – Malice – Lost Highway (kinda)

2) Hot Shots! – Bram Stoker’s Dracula – Liar Liar

3) The Notebook – Superman Returns – Enchanted – X-Men series (kinda)

4) The English Patient – Shakespeare in Love – Then She Found Me – The Accidental Husband – Mamma Mia!

5) In Love and War (kinda) – Forces of NaturePremonition (kinda) – All About Steve

See all the dumpees after the jump.
1) Bill Pullman

"At least I was the President in Independence Day."

2) Carey Elwes

"I'll always have The Princess Bride at least. At least..."

3) James Marsden

"I finally got the girl in 27 Dresses. But it was Katherine Heigl. I'm currently in Hop... does that count?"

4) Colin Firth

"I'm British... I don't care one way or another."

"So the girl doesn't get the guy? No comment..."
