  • Famous people from your area?

    CHS got me thinking about this, so I decided to make a thread about it.

    Are there any famous people who come from your local area? If so, then who?

    As for Watertown, Viggo Mortenson (Aargorn in LOTR, and more recently the main character in Hidalgo) grew up here and attended Watertown High School. He was in a local band and wrote a song about a restaraunt a few blocks from my house.

    Anyone else have any stories to share?

                  R.E.M. lead singer Michael Stipe (or strife or something?) is from here. If you couldn't tell, I don't particularly care for his music. One of the people from the B-52s is from here too... or might be the whole band (don't know, don't care )

                          Famous people from your area?

                          Many of Hamburg's mayors went to my school, though I doubt that any of them are even remotely know outside of Germany.
                          Ralph Giordano, famous writer came from my school.
                          Hollywood-Director Wolfgang Petersen (Troy) is from my school too .
                          And several German celebrities, only known in Germany.

                            Jessica & Ashlee Simpson
                            Norah Jones
                            Michael Johnson
                            Dr. Phil McGraw
                            Luke & Owen Wilson
                            Vanilla Ice

                              From Saint-Cloud, no worldwide celebs, but
                              The far-right Front National (National Front) party founder and historic leader Jean Marie Le Pen lives uphill.
                              No although the party has also picked up this town to host its headquarters, they always failed to gain the mayorship HAHA

                              Btw Colin, how lucky, Wolfgang Pettersen is one of my top favorite directors. Don't worry, I won't go to extremes by offering a swap with JMLP !
