Will Smith may have won 2008's box-office race -- at least according to those movie theater owners voting in the annual Quigley Poll. But who is Hollywood's fastest celebrity when it comes to running marathons? We wouldn't have guessed pudgy Will Ferrell, who according to this this Examiner.com story, is pretty near the top of crop, running the 2003 Boston Marathon in 3:56:12. As impressive as that is, Anthony Edwards, who has the stringy, authentically haggard-looking appearance of a hardcore distance runner, has him beat, with a 3:55:40 showing in the 2003 Chicago Marathon. Faster still, at least nineteen years ago, is William Baldwin, who turned in a 3:24:29 performance at the 1992 New York Marathon.
The slowest? Freddie Prinze Jr.'s 5:50:49 in the 2006 L.A. Marathon.
