NPR Sunday Puzzle (Dec 9): 5 letters + 5 letters = 10 letters

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Dec 9): 5 letters + 5 letters = 10 letters:
Q: Think of a well-known actor. Take the first five letters of his first name, and the last five letters of his last name, together, in order. These letters spell the name of a major American city. Who is the actor and what is the city?
I don't think we need to challenge this actors characterization as "well-known". I looked him up on IMDb and he has a good 125 film and TV appearances listed; a testament to his staying power in Hollywood.

Edit: Everyone remembers his role as Moses in the "Ten Commandments", right?

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
