Masi Oka a.k.a Hiro Nakamura from Heroes graduated Brown University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science and mathematics.

Thanks, I've added him to the list.

Great list idea! Some of these were wonderful suprises, like Tommy Lee Jones attending Harvard and David Duchovny's Masters.

Nothing is more shocking than Dolph's Masters degree in Chemical Engineering.

I heard Gerard Butler was a lawyer before...anyway I have to say, what an awesome list you have here. Brilliant idea! :D

Impressive is how Dolph Lundgren, as a 3rd Dan Kyokushin Karate, is able to speak 5 languages!

Great List! Now, a few suggestions: Edward Norton is a Yale Graduate (major in history)(http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001570/bio) and Brooke Shields graduated Princeton University with a degree in french literature (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooke_Shields). Graham Chapman has an degree in medice from Cambridge University (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001037/bio).

I love Dolph Lundgren!!!
Posted: 5 years, 8 months ago at Nov 23 17:59
Also, Will Ferrell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kevin Costner and Denzel Washington ;)

James Franco is still in school now but I think he has a degree already.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Dec 23 11:31
I have updated a few of these suggestions accordingly! Apparently Franco is a Uni drop out though.

Dara Ó Briain has a degree in maths and physics.
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Jan 4 20:58
I think it is worth noting that Brooke Shields (and I suspect others who earned their degrees after they were famous) did not have to complete the actual requirements for the degree and instead were basically able to buy a degree.

Also, Ron Jeremy has a Masters in Special Education.
