At Columbia, he was a member of the Columbia Lions football team, and played in the game that broke Columbia's notorious 42-game losing streak.

I just think that's awfully ironic, since 42 is one of The Numbers Morhange 04:56, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

It was 44 games, not 42. Jiggz84 03:40, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Blue Jays fan?[edit]

He confirmed in a December 5th interview on the Canadian network Much Music that he was not even a baseball fan, let alone a Blue Jays fan. Unless he was kidding around the statement that he is a fan of the Jays should be removed from the article. --Carl Brutananadilewski 23:05, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Third child?[edit]

The article cited on his page that says he and his wife are expecting a third child is dated November 2006, so if it was true, the child would be born by now. Anyone have any more information on this?

Fair use rationale for Image:Jacklost.PNG[edit]

In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

Wind River High School[edit]

Wind River High School in Pavillion, Wyoming is not an indian school. The majority (75%) of the school is white and always has been. Most of the Native Americans go to Wyoming Indian, St.Stephens,or the charter school in Fort Washakie. I think the writer of the story might have exgaggerated this for effect. My husband and I are both Wind River graduates and found this to be quite silly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:57, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Place of Birth[edit]

Where was Matthew Fox born? In his info box it says he was born in Exton, Pennsylvania while the first sentence of his bio states he was born in Crowheart, Wyoming. Does anyone know which one is correct? -Zomic13 (talk) 05:30, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Additionally, IMDB lists his birthplace as Abington, Pennsylvania. -Zomic13 (talk) 05:31, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
the very first reference links to geneology with the right birthdate but birthplace is wyoming. anyone have better references? WikiRoxor talk 05:11, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
nvm i got a good source WikiRoxor talk 15:44, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

External link to ZotFish?[edit]

Hi, I was wondering if it would be appropriate for someone to add an external link to the ZotFish page for Matthew Fox?. I believe it's of genuine interest to readers, but I want to make sure I follow Wikipedia policy and not post it myself -- more info on the site can be found at Mashable.

Zotman (talk) 03:32, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

The site violates WP:ELNO and WP:NOT#REPOSITORY, and it does not enhance the article. It should not be added. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 15:33, 1 June 2008 (UTC)


There is a lot of duplication between the introductory biography and the personal life section. Racepacket (talk) 11:59, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

No relation to Mass Effect.[edit]

Stop adding this to his page. Fox has nothing to do with any Mass Effect projects, and your personal wishes to the contrary have no effect on that. LeoNatan 06:08, 21 June 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lnatan25 (talkcontribs)

Matthew Fox (actor)Matthew Fox – Clear primary topic. Actor 42,950, priest 3,059, musician 621, athlete 64. Also one partial title match with 409. Marcus Qwertyus 04:00, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

If Meade was a great-grandfather, then Fox is Irish, too. "Gen. MEADE, the new leader of the Army of the Potomac, is the grandson of GEORGE MEADE, of Philadelphia, an eminent Irish-American merchant, whose firm (MEADE & FITZSIMMONS) contributed in 1781 $10,000 to a fund for the relief of the famishing army of Gen. WASHINGTON." -- New York Times, July 2, 1863 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:16, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Surely He's English too, if his father was English... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:16, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Please read the section again. It says that his father is of English "descent" not meant that he has or had British citizenship. Also be aware that you should not make edits to the article without providing WP:RSs. MarnetteD | Talk 23:08, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Allegations of beating women - polished away?[edit]

Around 30 may 2012 Dominic Monaghan posted several tweets on the subject of Matthew Fox having beaten women on more than one occasion. The story followed subsequent statements and tv appearances in which Fox denied and Monaghan persisted. Not a trace of the controversy remains in either actor's Wikipedia article, though I'm pretty sure the whole thing was there. What happened? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:21, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
