People You Didn't Know Are Polish: Johnny Galecki

If you follow me on Twitter, you might know that I am a fan of The Big Bang Theory.  I actually chuckle at the science jokes and the scenarios discussing social awkwardness resound with me.

I will admit now that I was deemed "Gifted" in school as well.  I won't get into that right now.

The cast of The Big Bang Theory has 5 main characters and they are all linked together by their relationship with Johnny Galecki's character, Leonard Hofstadter.

Johnny Galecki's last name is pronounced Gah-weht-skee and he is of Polish, Italian and Irish decent.

On The Late Late Show, Johnny actually discusses being Polish.  And guess what?  He's from Chicago.

Na razie...

Check out Eddie Zawadzki, a best selling author and broadcaster's from Toronto new book "Poles in the New World" is now in its third printing since March of 2010. Polish version will be released in April of 2011 in North America and Europe. I never knew there were so many Polish Americans we aren't aware of.
