Just a fun thread that may not catch any momentum, but I'm interested. What famous people are from Pittsburgh?

I'll start, Pearl S. Buck, Nobel Prize winning novelist was a native of the East End.

Omg, I order "Arnold Palmer's" ALL the time. It's my favorite drink. Actually, I've grown to love green tea/lemonade even more, but it's harder to find. God bless Starbucks!

I did not even know he was from Pittsburgh. That probably shows my age, it's probably common knowledge to many.

Neither did I. Army brat? Like Christina Aguillera, who went to high school in Wexford.

Yeah, I'm not gonna look, 'cause it will kill the thread, but glad it's there to refer back in the end.

How 'bout Dennis Miller, from Castle Shannon I think.
