When Washington Met Hollywood: At Lunch With Cory Booker and Susan Sarandon – Oh, this is so bizarre. For whatever reasons, Cory Booker and Susan Sarandon had lunch. In the interview/discussion that followed, there’s a question/statement posed:
“Here’s a weird coincidence. You both appeared on TV genealogy shows, looking for a missing ancestor.”
What’s stranger to me that is that I did the sleuthing on both cases – figuring out who the father of Cory’s grandfather was and tracking down Susan’s grandmother who had gone missing around 1940. Cory’s was for Finding Your Roots while Susan’s was for Who Do You Think You Are? Cory’s was much harder than the show made it seem, and Susan’s was easier!
