Jake Lloyd, Ross Lynch, Tim Allen, Trey Parker & Ailee are some of the celebrities who hail from Colorado.

The state of Colorado is situated amidst the Colorado Plateau, The Great Plains and Southern Rocky Mountains. The state got its name from a river which was termed ‘Colorado’ (which roughly means ‘Ruddy’) by Spanish travellers. Colorado is also famously known as ‘Centennial State’ because it was formed in the year when America was celebrating its 100th year of independence. Actors Tim Allen and Lon Chaney, inventor Robert J Seiwald, television host Ted Mack and boxer William Harrison are a few eminent personalities hailing from Colorado. Tim Allen is an acclaimed comedian who has acted in several films, like ‘The Santa Claus’ trilogy, ‘Wild Hogs’, ‘Galaxy Quest’ and the television series ‘Last Man Standing’. The actor was also the voice of the character Buzz Lightyear in the animated ‘Toy Story’ trilogy, produced by the entertainment giant ‘Disney’.
