    No one famous came from Grand Blanc that I know of....unless you count Evan Peters. He's an actor that went to my high school. I think he was a year younger

    Three current NHL players are from Moorhead, MN:
    Jason Blake
    Matt Cullen
    Brian Lee

    Becky Gulsvig, broadway actress

    Bunny Lebowski is from Moorhead, does that count?

    Moorhead was also where Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper were headed when they're plane crashed in Iowa. "The day the music died".

    Jim Croce and Tina Fey are both on my high school's Wall Of Fame. In fact one of my best friends who's a bit older, he was like a freshman when Fey was a senior, her family's house was on his paper route, he talked to her several times (It's Upper Darby, in 30 Rock she changed the name to Whitehaven)

    Look at her hulking thick neck. No thanks.

    Brady Quinn's girl from the NFL Draft is infinitely hotter. Guess she dumped him when the Browns selected him. Shame.

    Nobody famous from where I'm from since it is a small rural area in Nova Scotia... Sidney Crosby is from about an hour away though. That's something.
