Can you fill in the last names of all these famous people named Buddy?

Are you buddy-buddy enough with these actors and musicians to know their full names?

Before it was associated with athletic golden retrievers and Christmas elves, Buddy was actually a common first name, especially as a stage name. Many performers either kept their nickname from childhood or chose “Buddy” because it was easier to remember than their given name.

Here are ten actors and musicians we know as Buddy. Can you guess each person’s last name?

8 for 10. Do I get extra credit for mentioning the old TV series "Run Buddy Run"?
I loved Jack Sheldon! He is a legend, I remember the Dragnet appearances especially the one where he played the drunk and his “ …Long Beach? That’s thirty dirty miles from here! “ Wonderful talented man, and one of the best trumpet player ever…
I always thought Sheldon was one of the most likable people on 1960's TV.
