    Do any of you know or have seen any celebrities in Columbus. This includes sports, news, entertainment etc. I know Halle Berry is from Cleveland but I wonder if she has ever visited Columbus before as well as Lindsay Lohan? Anyone know?

    I’ve never personally seen a big-name celebrity in Columbus, but I hear Eric Clapton is here frequently (his wife is from here). Wikipedia has a pretty good list of famous people from here:

    I believe clapton owns a house in powell. Schwarzenegger is probably the biggest name that consistently has been in columbus over the years. The arnold always bring some names like lou ferrigno(incredible hulk)and a wide variety of mma fighters. I’ve been also been told brent musberger likes to come to columbus to golf quite often although he would probably only be a celebrity for college sports fans. I’ve seen jack nicklaus and john glenn several times in passing as well as a large amount of NFL and NBA players. Generally they have ties to OSU although they have been accompanied by other players who apparently are friends of theirs.

    The dude from How I Met Your Mother is from Bexley and returns occasionally. Maggie Grace (Lost, Taken, The Following, and now Californication) is from Worthington? and has been back frequently, I even know a local photographer who got to do a shoot with her.

    Wow. This is pretty cool. I guess more famous people visit Columbus than I thought. I guess though some keep it low key when they are here. I know Bow Wow is from here and owns a home here when he frequently visits here too.

    Lots of big time politicians visit here during election years. POTUS, VPOTUS seem like they’re here all the time.

    Bradley Whitford (West Wing, Cabin in the Woods) spent election night here this past November.

    I saw Bernie Kosar at the North Market a couple weeks ago.

    Seth Rogen is a frequent visitor. I think he has a place in town but I’m not sure.
