Default Players with other famous people's names

So, I read here http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/draftday/y200...eam_cha_1.html
that we have drafted one Ray Liotta as a pitcher this year.

Anyone know of any other players with famous namesakes?

Let's not forget James Baldwin.

On second thought, let's forget him. I have a couple of unpleasant memories of seeing him blow ballgames for the Sox.

My presonal favorite is Kenny Rogers, if only he could've played for the Sox...

Wasn't he a 1B for the Sox in the 50s?
