Montgomery County has strong ties to many celebrities, but we wanted to list a few that aren’t discussed as much as the usual suspects. Check out this list of just 10 of the thousands of celebrities with MoCo ties below:
Pamela Reed: You may recognize her from one of her many movie or television roles (Kindergarten Cop, Junior, Jericho, NCIS: Los Angeles, etc.), but before she went to Hollywood, Reed lived in Silver Spring and attended Springbrook High School.
Rick Yune: Perhaps best known for his role as a villain in the first Fast & the Furious movie, Yune has had a successful TV and film career since the late 90s. Yune (then Yun) was born in D.C., but attended Our Lady of Good Counsel High School (then in Wheaton).
Whitney Cummings: The actress and comedian has appeared on multiple Comedy Central Roasts as well as her own NBC sitcom, Whitney. She was born and raised in nearby Georgetown, but attended St. Andrews in Potomac, where she graduated in 2000.
Dylan Baker: Baker is one of those actors that has been in everything. You know who he is, you’ve seen him plenty, but you just never knew his name. Born in New York and raised in Virginia, he finished out high school in MoCo when he graduated from Georgetown Prep in 1976.
Sean Murray: Murray was introduced to most of us as Thackery Binx in Hocus Pocus (the young man that was turned into a cat). Later on he started in JAG and is currently in a starring role in the hit CBS series, NCIS. Murray is from Bethesda.
Tommy Davidson: You may remember Davidson as one of the breakout stars of In Living Color, but he has also appeared in many movies (Ace Ventura, Juwanna Mann, etc.). Davidson graduated from Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in 1982.
Delaney Williams: He has played the role of a police officer in just about everything! You may recognize him from his role in HBO’s The Wire, Law & Order: SVU, Blue Bloods, etc. He is a graduate of Blair High School in Silver Spring.
Thomas Jane: Jane has had a very long lasting and successful Hollywood career. You may remember him from his starting role in The Punisher, his HBO series Hung, or his current Netflix original movie, 1922. He graduated from Wootton High School in 1987.
Chris Carmack: You’ve probably seen him in his role in the popular teen drama The O.C., or the country music series, Nashville. He also released an EP in 2015. Carmack is a graduate of Magruder High School.
