Billy Eichner, star of Fuse’s Funny or Die show, ‘Billy on the Street’, makes a career out of stopping innocent passersby on the street to ask them obscure questions. In the latest installment of his popular, and oft-times amusing show, Eichner enlists the help of ‘Parks and Recreation’ star, Rashida Jones to play a new game entitled ‘Whistleblow that Jew’.

The rules are simple. Eichner will read off a list of Jewish celebrities and their supposed birth names. Jones has to guess whether or not the suggested names are real by stating “not that name” (if she suspects Eichner made the name up) or “full of shame” (if the actor changed their name to sound less Jewish).

Jones does a surprisingly incredible job, only getting one incorrect. Some of the people included are Natalie Portman, Gene Simmons, Bob Dylan, Woody Allen, and Winona Ryder. Do you know what all of these Jewish celebrities’ birth names are?
