I thought te obvious answer was that they had all slept with felix...but Jeff Goldblum?? -- Not his type.

Yes, Ben Cartwright and I were an item in the early 70's. I feel like I was just used as eye candy mostly.

Had Betty White not brought along Bea Arthur that would be the correct answer.

If you meant Taurean Blacque, and not Tauren Blacque, I still don't know.

How about they were all TV lawyers or TV cops?

felix

It has nothing to do with the type of show that they starred in (such as Legal or Western).

What do you consider "the obvious", the fact that all their names include colors???? Or that they are all actors?

felix
Felix  (Level: 109.3 - Posts: 2500)

Yes! Look at what is common or alike about some of the TV series that they appeared on.

Allright,. I'm throwing off all pretence of pride of authorship, let's work this one out as a group.

Significant TV Series:

Lorne Green: Bonanza, Battlestar Gallatica

Michelle Green: LA Law

Betty White: Mary Tyle Moore, Golden Girls

Jeff Goldblum: Law and Order

Taurean Blacque: Hill Street Blues

Erin Gray: Buck Rogers, Port Charles

I guess the obvious is that their names are all colors. Did their hair color match their names in those series?

No. But you are (slightly) leaning in the right direction.
