[...] Gallery: Bay State Roots, Hollywood Fame [...]
Isn’t this Bay State Roots story and post on the ‘BZ Website a little bit stale, it’s been up on your page for, what, it seems almost a year now..?
How about adding Eric Bogosian from Woburn to your list????
WE FORGOT Jjimmy Tingle (CBS comentator and comedian) , Lenny Clarke (comedian and actor) , Chris Afleck and his broither Ben Afleck, Mat Damian (actor), Bonny Raite (sp? singer actor)
Kristina Hughes (http://www.KristinaHughes.com) Old School, Green River, The Resolve, Vegan 101, etc., etc. Love her!
Michael Chicklis, Jay Leno, Betty Davis (born in Lowell, MA), Ed McMahon,Eliza Dushku, Mark Wallburg, Natalie Portman (went to Harvard), Michael Tremblay (check IMDB)
How come Amy Poehler’s page has no info? Where is she from?
Comedian Bill Burr is from Canton, David Lee Roth played basketball for Swampscott High, Howard Stern spent 4 years at BU (there are exterior shots of the school in “Private Parts”) and for honorable mention, Florence Henderson’s Carol Brady (from “the Brady Bunch”) was said to have grown up in Swampscott.
Don’t forget Leonard Nimoy, Bobby Morse, Barbara Walters, and Jack Lemmon to name but a few. How far back do you want to go? Horace Mann? Anne Sexton? Massachusetts is the place where many important people have chosen to live, if only relatively briefly: Frederick Douglass, Ninoy Aquino, and Timothy Leary. I live in Arizona now, but am continually reminded of the greats that the Bay State has produced. Makes me proud to have been born and raised there.
That is NOT a photo of Chris Evans…. but he is from Massachusetts!
thought bette davis came from townsend mass.
So – someone who went to school in Boston for 3 semesters has “Bay State Roots”?
