Pin Portraits of Famous Faces by Philip Karlberg

Swedish photographer Philp Karlberg came up with this rather clever means to sculpt some famous faces using colorful pins and carefully placed lighting. 

He says,

A couple of months ago I came up with an idea I have had in mind for years. I just did not know what I could use it for. But then I did a test with sunglasses, and it really turned out great. So I sent an image with the test to Plaza Magazine, and a week later I started shooting. It was a real challenge to 'sculpt' the faces of some classic wearers of sunglasses. It took me 6 days to shoot the 6 faces, and around 1200 sticks were used.

I'll admit. I can only get four of these, and I'm not entirely sure my last guess is correct. Can you make out all the famous faces?
