If I mention Michigan celebrities, you probably think Kid Rock or Eminem. You wouldn't be wrong, but you might not know about a few others. A couple grew up not too far from here, actually. In fact, Michigan has a pretty good crop of famous faces.

Who doesn't love Full House. Who doesn't love Uncle Joey? Dave Coulier is from St. Claire Shores and still spends a lot of time in the Detroit area. He has also made a pretty good career out of doing clean comedy.

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell have been a couple for a while. Catchy commercials, several movies, and she was Veronica Mars. Both of them were born in Michigan. Kristen grew up in Huntington Woods and also went to Catholic school in Royal Oak. Dax grew up in the same spot as my girlfriend, which is Milford. If you have never been, it's a pretty cool little town near Commerce Township.

A lot of actors have worn the red cape, but it was Tom Welling who has played Superman longer than anyone else. Technically, he was Clark Kent on Smallville for ten years, but he was Superman for a whole new generation of fans. He was born in New York, but got his first taste of acting when he was a student at Okemos High School. Yep, Superman went to high school just down the street.

Michigan has plenty of famous faces from all over the state, and I didn't even touch on Madonna, Stevie Wonder, or Bob Seger. It is pretty cool that various parts of Hollywood are represented by Pure Michigan!
