Big photos below.
If you're like us, you love the Internet Movie Database, arguably the most comprehensive online treasure trove of info about movies, TV shows and the people in them. Among the gazillion things you can do on IMDB is search folks by where they're from. When we tried this with Mile High City natives, we triggered a "Most Popular People Born In 'Denver/Colorado/USA'" list. And what an unusual roster it is. Odds are good either you won't have realized some members of the top ten were Denverites or you haven't heard of them at all. Continue to see what we mean.

Number 10: Shannon Lucio

Virile, handsome and square-jawed youthful star of the 1970s and 1980s whose early potential at super-stardom fizzled out. Jan-Michael Vincent originally made a name for himself portraying rebellious young men bucking the system, as in Tribes (1970) (TV), White Line Fever (1975) and Baby Blue Marine (1976) or as a man of action on either side of the law, as in The Mechanic (1972), Vigilante Force (1976) and "The Winds of War" (1983)....

India Arie. Amy Adams. Kate and Oliver Hudson. Keri Russell. Jessica Biel. Are these popular Colorado stars native? I know some of them were raised here at least for awhile.

If you are born here... but not raised here... you are not a native in my book. Stop the nonsense or we will have 1 million Colorado anchor babies wanting to be a native from the most awesome place on earth!

Surprised to see that Pam Grier and Don Cheadle were not on the list. They were not born in Denver, but they went to high school there (Denver East).

Notice how almost every single person on this list was born here but not raised here. And wtf is Kriston Cavallari doing on this list? Laaaaaame.

Don Cheadle born in KS, Amy Adams born in Italy, Jessica Beil born in MN. Look up Kristen Branan on IMDb and check out her accomplishments in special effects with Zoic Studios.

Who are most of these people?  Most are easily "out-famed" by Jessica Biel.  That says a lot.  Hell, I would even say RGIII's wife is more famous than most on this list.

Don Cheadle was the first that came to mind for me as well.  I know most people today (esp. on IMDb) think the world started in 2000, but what about Douglas Fairbanks?  


Really, though, are the most famous currently Trey Parker and Matt Stone (even is Stone was born in TX)?

Eh, I don't know who half of the people are on this list. What about Don Cheadle? Amy Adams?
