As I watched Cobra Kai season 3, which is fantastic, it hit me that Daniel LaRusso had roots in New Jersey.  It made me wonder what other television or movie characters came from our great state.  I did a little investigating and came up with a top 7 list.  PS, Gaten Matarazzo, pictured above and a star of Stranger Things, is a real human and really from New Jersey.  He was raised in Little Egg Harbor Township and went to Pinelands Regional High School.  I considered picturing the cast of MTV's Jersey Shore.  Some might argue that some of the show is fictional?

Who would YOU add to this list of fictional New Jersey characters?  Which of these surprise you the most?
