    Link: Jewhoo - A site dedicated to listing Jewish celebrities of film, TV. music, literature, politics, sports, etc.

    A great site to read about the biographies of various Jewish celebrities and to see if your favorite celebrity is Jewish.

    When `Star Wars: A New Hope` was being filmed in England, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford used to clown around a lot to let off steam. This included singing songs they`d modified like `Jew Ought To Be In Show Business`, and at first the English film-crew thought they were being anti-Semitic - until they learned that both Carrie and Harrison came from Jewish backgrounds.

    I was surprised to read here that Harrison Ford is Jewish as is David Duchovny and Tom Bosley (Mr. Cunningham from `Happy Days`).

    The most surprising thing is that nearly the entire cast for `Hogan`s Heroes` (including Col. Klink, Sgt. Schultz, Gen. Burkhalter, Hochstetter, LeBeau, Carter, etc.) is Jewish.

    The big surprise for me was that Pope John Paul I was actually Jewish...

    What I found on Tony Randall:

    - Star of "The Odd Couple", as Felix Unger. Tony had a long film career before this role and he frequently appears on the stage. He always dreamed of founding a permanent American theatrical company similar to the national theaters existing in almost every European country. In 1991, Randall founded the National Actors` Theater in New York, having a decidely mixed track record of success and has barely been able to continue on. As most people know, Tony became a first-time father in his middle seventies (he was born in 1923). His first wife died after 50 years of marriage. He now has a son and daughter with his second wife. Tony was born Leopold Rosenberg. He may seem like a `total` New Yorker, but was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. (Where he went to Hebrew school) coming to New York just before WWII to study acting and except for four years in the army during the war (he was a lieutenant in the Signal Corps) he never left New York again.

    Interestingly, both Orlando Bloom and Jack Black are Jewish.
