Triumphing Over Tough Trivia

The Ken Jennings super-tough trivia question this week goes something like this:

Charles Lindbergh, Mel Brooks, Ronald Reagan, Jerry Stiller, Shakespeare. Based on what these five people have in common, what other famous historical figure, far and away more than any other, belongs on this list twice?

I figured it out, and I’m sure I’m right. What do you think it is, Loyal Readers? Ken e-mails the answers to his trivia questions on Tuesdays; Monday night I, or the Wife, will put my answer on the comments section here to go on record.
