New Yorkers: Adam Rodriguez

Adam Rodriguez, Born in Yonkers

But after an injury in high school, the former CSI: Miami star turned his attention to acting and began performing in a children's theater in New York. Whew! Had Rodriguez not pursued acting, we probably never would’ve seen (all of) him in last summer’s blockbuster male-stripper movie Magic Mike. Everything happens for a reason!
