Michiganders have a lot of pride about being from this great state. I certainly do! We’ve got the Great Lakes, beautiful forests, major sports teams and all the seasons. What’s not to like? Okay, I could do without the cold winters. But, that aside, this is a pretty awesome place to live.

In honor of Michigan’s 185th birthday on Jan. 26, 2022, we’re celebrating the great actors and actresses that come from this state. My nana was a huge fan of Tom Sellek, so he’s my favorite on here. Read on for the list via Stacker here and here.
