    She got her braces off the next year. She was a year behind me at John Adams Junior High School in Charleston West Virginia.

    I didn't know her; she caught me looking at her and smiled.

    She apparently dropped the "e" from Leslie and became Lesli.

    Nice! I still think stuff like that is cool. The lead singer of my band in college worked on Birdman- that Michael Keaton movie. I saw his name in the credits and was like, "HEY HEY OMG look look I know that guy!"

    My wife is from southern California and she's like, "hey, I think I went to school with that guy who directed that Avengers movie... yawn... anyway..."

    I went to school with Barbara Klein (Barbie Benton). She was a fixture on Hee Haw for a time.

    I went to junior high and high school with Karen Moncrieff. (same high school Madonna Ciccone went to )

    She started out on an 80s soap called Santa Barbara, she played the evil vixen, and she’s in red in the picture above.

    Later she went into directing and did two acclaimed movies - Blue Car and The Dead Girl. The Dead Girl is highly recommended and the cast is pretty astounding.

    She’s directed a bunch of other movies and directed for TV series as well.

    I went to school with the abnormally good looking Zugay twins. As far as I know neither ever noticed me or became stars.

    I went to the same school as Ian Curtis from Joy Division. But he wasn't a hot actress.

    Mine was bookended by a couple of famous folks with fairly divergent paths. James Lankford graduated the same year I started high school, he moved north and became the junior US Senator from Oklahoma. And Stacy Sanches was a freshman my senior year, she went on to become a Playmate.

    No recollection of interacting with either of them.

    William Jackson Harper (from the Good Life) also went there, but is ten years my junior.

    I worked with Linda Hamilton’s nephew at a record store when I was a teenager. The Terminator was huge at the time.

    My older cousin Milton is the one yelling "Eugene!" at the opening of ZZ Top's Fandango album.
    (He's not listed in the credits in the credits though)
