We notice that Eddie McClintock, who plays Pete Lattimer on the Syfy TV series Warehouse 13, wears T-shirts with logos of various Canton, Ohio, sports teams. Is he from Canton?
—Betty M. Wall, Hartville, Ohio

McClintock is from North Canton, and his T-shirts are his way of saluting his Ohio roots. “I’m proud of where I come from,” says the actor, 43, who has fond memories of his time on the wrestling team at North Canton’s Hoover High School. He says that his father, wrestling coach Walt Tolarchyk, football coach Ed Glass and the small Midwestern town where he grew up all helped “make me the man I am today. The lessons I learned from them help me deal with the soul-sucking adversity that is Hollywood.”
