Arnold, Neither Pig nor Governor

Today is the birthday of Iowa's own Tom Arnold. Born in Ottumwa in 1959, he nevertheless eventually became an actor. No disrespect to Ottumwa, but it's just like the rest of Iowa - not exactly the Hollywood of the Midwest. Among his better work are the films True Lies and Happy Endings. If you're interested in his point of view vis-a-vis all the shenanigans that put him in the spotlight, especially during his Roseanne years, you might try his autobiography, How I lost 5 pounds in 6 years. Ha! He's still got it. Of course, maybe "it" is the truth about dieting.
