The Reggie Cleveland All-Stars

reggie.jpg

ESPN's Bill Simmons invented the Reggie Cleveland All-Stars -- athletes whose names and ethnicities don't match; guys who made you say, "Wow, he's white?" [NOTE: It doesn't only apply to white players. Consider former UCLA standouts Ed & Charles O'Bannon. And it doesn't just work for athletes. For example, Clickity Clack's real name is Anfernee Clack.]

More examples...

Know any other Reggie Cleveland All-Stars, from the world of sports, entertainment, politics or your own social circles?
