I am going to try a partial answer.. I still got three question marks left.
- Liev Schreiber -> "Huggy" (portrayed Orson Welles in 1999(sic!) in the Film RKO 281)
- Brad Friedel -> "The Human Wall"
- Dante Lavelli -> "Glue Fingers" (there are many other American 'Dante's with a nickname, so I am not sure - another option is Lino Dante Alan Ameche, "The Iron Horse")
- Jay London -> "the fourth guy from the left on the evolutionary chart" (???)
- Maxwell Dillon -> "Electro"
- Concubine Qi -> "The Human Pig"
- Wolfgang Grams -> "Gaks"
- Charles Benjamin Adams and George Hermann Ruth -> "Babe" (Babe Adams, Babe Ruth)
- One of the Three Tenors (???) -> ???

"The Human (something-or-other)" (partial answer)
Missing a couple...
- A man who portrayed Orson Welles in 1994
- Vincent D'Onofrio "The Human Chameleon"
- A goalkeeper who once scored a goal
- Brad Friedel "The Human Wall"
- An American who shares Mr. Alighieri's name
- Dante Hall The "Human Joystick"
- A comedian whose surname is a European capital
- Morey Amsterdam "The Human Joke Machine"
- Electro "The Human Lightning Bolt"
- A woman who died in 194BC
- Concubine Qi "The Human Pig"
- The son of refugees from a Baltic state
?Lembit Öpik "The Human Anagram"
- Two baseball players
- One of three Rubenesque musicians
?Darren Robinson "Buffy the Human Beat Box"
I started off being clever and knowing that Ed Wood was from around 1994 , but it didn't say who played Orson, so then I went to Orson Welles (duh) where it did - Vincent D'Onofrio. Then 194 BC to find Concubine Qi. Skipping all the blind alleyways... So then I spotted they were both nicknamed "The Human (something-or-other)" (That poor woman). So then I searched for "the human" baseball and dug to find those two on List of athletes by nickname and Hoover. Alighieri is Dante of course, Google search on Dante "The Human" gave "Dante Hall". Search for "human comedian" (eventually) turned up Morey Amsterdam. "human goalkeeper" turned up Brad Friedel. "human electro" turned up Spider-Man (1960s animation) whose episode 2B was "Electro the Human Lightning Bolt". As for the musicians. all I could find were Topper Headon from The Clash - "The Human Drum machine" and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones - "The Human Riff" (according to List of entertainers by nickname). Neither of them strikes me as Rubenesque (or indeed one of three). Nor is it Allison Crowe whose label is called Rubenesque. The son of the refugees... I got nothing. - Lee (talk) 19:45, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
- Try googling wikipedia for "the human" and "fat". I guessed the son of refugees would be difficult to find - that's why there's a hidden hint. Dmn 23:03, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
- You know, I had tried "the human" Large musician, I didn't think we'd out and out call them fat. One left. - Lee (talk) 23:36, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
- That's definitely better. Congratulations for that answer! :) -- Ravn 08:11, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
