The Minot native appeared on NBC’s “Today Show” Thursday morning to promote North Dakota Tourism’s new 2016 campaign that features Duhamel.

Duhamel, who’s also starring in an upcoming move with Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins, told the “Today Show” hosts, “I grew up there, and when I moved away, nobody knew anything about it.
