With such an incredibly long list of Famous New Jerseyans, it was quite the challenge to condense the list to just 20 Famous Actors, so we thought it was only right to also name some of the honorable mentions.

They are: Brittany Murphy (Edison), Zach Braff (South Orange), Michelle Rodriguez (Jersey City), Thomas Mitchell (Elizabeth), Elisabeth Shue (South Orange), Jack Warden (Newark), Tara Ried (Wyckoff), Bud Abott (Asbury Park), Frankie Muniz (Wood-Ridge), Joe Piscopo (Passaic), Tisha Campbell-Martin (Newark), Ian Ziering (West Orange), Malcolm Jamal Warner (Jersey City), Judith Light (Trenton).
