A connect it is, this time.
Identify the first and third, and connect all three to a single person.
Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
Three replies, and only one gets it, though another came pretty close. I had asked for a specific person as the connection, and that is Jim Parsons, aka, Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory. He played the human form of Walter the muppet in The Muppets, released recently. Also played a role in The Great New Wonderful. And our priest, Georges Lemaître, theorised the Big Bang.
