ASBURY PARK, N.J. (AP) — Award-winning actress Meryl Streep won’t be there when she’s inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame next week.

Streep is part of a class that includes Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry, disco queen Gloria Gaynor, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and E Street Band guitarist and “Sopranos” star Steven Van Zandt.

Also among the inductees are astronauts Mark and Scott Kelly; nurse Clara Maass; politician Millicent Fenwick; athletes Al Leiter (LY’-tur), Mary Decker and Carli Lloyd; publisher Steve Forbes and “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro.
