He's actually not, originally. He was born in Connecticut.
He resides in Texas because that's where his father, that immensely more competent former President, moved the family upon graduation, to enter the oil industry.
Oh, and I forgot to answer my own question.
Thomas Newman is without a doubt my favorite film score composer. His music is different in that he rarely rely on western instruments (besides a piano) or orchestral arrangements. His often very simple, repetitive piano themes tell a story with such intensity. They're very powerful, very haunting. They fit indescribably with whatever is happening on screen. Here's the recurring melodic theme in Revolutionary Road:

If you care at all, which I'm certain you don't, look up Revolutionary Road end title on Youtube.
John Williams. Harry Potter was a fad...but the music was good. Oh yeah, and STAR WARS. Also every other film ever made.

I think this question is pretty funny, haha. I don't really see why they would refuse to shave it, but whatever. If it was a full-blown unibrow, then I really don't think so. I dated a girl a few years ago that was kind of known for having a bit of excess hair in certain places, though, and I'm trying to get back with her now. No biggie.
