These are the actors, writers, producers, and directors who have
been at least partly responsible for more than one movie featured here in the Agony Booth. Do not
approach any of these people, and more importantly, do not approach any of their films.

Offender #16: LAINIE KAZAN
Click here to
go to Lainie Kazan's IMDb entry!
|Date of Birth:||May 15, 1940.|
|Known Aliases:||The Queen, Berneice, Gigli's Mom.|
Overbearing and/or ethnic (she's of Spanish and Russian Jewish heritage, according to the IMDb) mother roles are Kazan's specialty on both the stage and the screen. As proof, her role as the aspiring writer's mom in My Favorite Year was one she repeated ten years later when it was unsuccessfully adapted into a Broadway musical. She attracted fresh attention and strong reviews as Nia Vardalos' mom in 2002's My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and was one of the few positives in the subsequent short-lived sitcom My Big Fat Greek Life.

NOTE: Only actors, writers, directors and producers are eligible to be
Repeat Offenders. If we had to track grips, stuntmen, and hairdressers, this list would be insanely long.
Also, no one is to be considered a Repeat Offender solely for appearing in an Agony Booth-recapped
sequel to another Agony Booth-recapped film. Again, that would make this list insanely long.
Finally, for obvious reasons, participating in multiple Agony Booth-recapped
episodes of the same TV series does not qualify anyone for Repeat Offender status.
