    A famous actor, an internationally acclaimed rock band and a sharpshooter were all named to the 2012 class of inductees for the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

    Earlier this month, the likes of Princeton actor Christopher Reeve, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and Annie Oakley were among several other famous people who haved called the Garden State home to be inducted into the state’s hall of fame.
