Gary Steinmehl's Sun puzzle, "Role Model," features a STAR and supporting cast members, EXTRA, CAMEO, and WALK-ON, along with the poor FAVA BEANS ("A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.").

Mike Torch's NYT is breezy and easy, with the STEAL/STEELE/STEEL triad.

Hey, they're Monday puzzles. Not much to discuss here...
