It’s Amazing How Many Great Actors And Actresses Have New Jersey Ties [POLL]

I wanted to do a story on some great actors and actresses who were either born in New Jersey, grew up here or live here, so we could do a poll on the best actor or actress from the Garden State. When I checked out the list, I was floored. Hollywood owes New Jersey a lot!

Want to hear some of the names?. OK, here we go. Jack Nicholson, Susan Sarandon,John Travolta,Whitney Houston, Danny DeVito, Meryl Streep, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Michael Douglas and Ed Harris.

Oh, I’m not done. Anne Hathaway, Joe Pesci, Christopher Reeve, Frank Sinatra, Bruce Willis and Andrew McCarthy. And did I mention Kirsten Dunst and Little Steven?

That is certainly not a complete list. It’s just a sample of how much New Jersey has meant to acting. I know it’s impossible to pick just one, or maybe not. Let’s do the poll anyway. Good luck! I had a hard time picking four names to put on the survey, but if your favorite isn’t on there, don’t worry. There’s a place for you to enter any New Jersey actor or actress you want.
