American cult actor is an Afghan prince...
Scott Reiniger, who appeared in the 1978 movie Dawn of the Dead, is the great, great, great grandson of Josiah Harlan, the first American to set foot in Afghanistan.

I understand Afghanistan could use some leaders, these days. Of course I wouldn't blame him for not reclaiming his status. I sure wouldn't expect Karzai to welcome him with open arms.

That's the kind of weird fact I like to hear about, thanks.

I am reading the book about Josiah Harlan now "The Man Who Would Be King," which came out recently. The story is so amazing and awesome - I can't put it down.
