Is ''Alan Alda'' the answer to these actual Jeopardy! questions?

No category clues here, because Alan Alda is in a category of his own!

Alan Alda is one of TV's favorite treasures, which is probably why the Screen Actors Guild recently honored him with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The winning actor has been charming audiences for decades.

But did you know at the exact same time, he's also been befuddling Jeopardy! contestants? Alan Alda has been referenced on the show dozens of times in both the questions and the answers, but today, we want to see if you can tell when the answer to Jeopardy!'s toughest clues is actually Alan Alda.

Scroll through the questions below and think hard about what you know about the actor who played Hawkeye on M*A*S*H and so many other memorable roles, while also finessing his behind-the-scenes talents. 

Good luck, contestants! Only true Alan Alda fans will get them all. Oh, and when you're done, check out our Alan Alda tribute video for all the extra feels.

Jamie Farr also served in Korea, but the "alliteratively named actor" part of the clue doesn't fit Jamie Farr.
