In this teaser, you are to take the first letter from the people's surnames to discover the name of this famous Australian politician.

1. I was one of the first and, considered by many, greatest of American jazz singers, known for my unique and laconic timing and voice, as well as my troubled personal life. I began singing in Harlem clubs as a teenager and first recorded with Benny Goodman in 1933.

2. My first album, 'The Lion and The Cobra' was released in 1987, and its popular and critical acclaim made me a star of pop music.

3. I starred as 'Nick' in 'The Deer Hunter' (1978), a role that earned me an Oscar as best supporting actor and established me as a specialist in dangerous and unstable characters.

4. In Greek mythology, I was the greatest hero of the Trojan War and the central character of Homer's epic poem Iliad.

5. I became the Vatican's Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, charged with "safeguarding" church doctrine during the reign of John Paul II. I succeeded John Paul II as pope and leader of the Catholic Church on 19 April 2005 and took the name Benedict XVI.

6. I wrote the book, 'The Origin of Species'. It was a scientific bombshell in its day and remains a much-discussed work 150 years later.
