Earlier today I noticed on three different sites (including this one) that Nicolas Cage's name was spelled wrong, with the writer opting for Nicholas over Nicolas. Simple mistake, yes, but I began to think about all the different celebrities and films with names and titles we just can't seem to spell right no matter how hard we try. As far as film titles go, the most confusing one of 2008 and 2009 has to be Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds -- a title that comes with at least one "Hey, are you sure they spell it that way?" instant message or email each and every time I write about it.

I introduced this question via Twitter (feel free to follow me and find out how lame I really am) a little while ago, and the most popular misspellings for celebrities were Shia LaBeouf, Steve Carell, Will Ferrell and Colin Farrell. Folks usually have the most trouble with names that could have a double 'L', and long hard-to-pronounce last names are also a pain in the neck to figure out (ie: Timur Bekmambetov). Which film title or celebrity name do you find yourself misspelling on a regular basis?
