Famous Actors You Wouldn’t Think Were Born in Missouri, But Were
When you think of actors that were born in Missouri, there are several that come to mind and many of those are wrong. Brad Pitt, for example, grew up in Missouri but was not born here. I found a new list that included many actors that were born in the Show Me State and many surprised me and maybe they will you, too.
Stacker recently dropped a comprehensive Famous Actors From Missouri article. I'll skip the obvious ones like John Hamm and John Goodman since most everyone knows their Missouri roots. There were several that stood out to me as genuine surprises including the first one in particular who I've always associated with Florida for obvious reasons.
Sad side note: Michael Massee who played Fun Boy in The Crow was the one who tragically fired the gun without knowing a bullet fragment was lodged in it that killed Brandon Lee in 1993. He reportedly took a year off from acting after the incident and never watched the movie. He said he never fully recovered from the trauma of that. He was born in Missouri on September 1, 1952.
I would highly recommend checking out the entire Slacker list. Quite a few actors in movies like Fast and the Furious and Spiderman that you will recognize along with these favorites.
