Don Cheadle is our first guest at today’s birthday celebrations, the character actor is always worth watching and his latest film The Guard is out on DVD next week. However. his British accent in the Ocean’s films was the worst since Dick Van Dyke hired a Australian vocal coach for his performance in Mary Poppins.
50% of the Coen brothers are also a year older today, writer/producer/director Joel Coen is a year wiser, which considering how smart the Coen Brothers are already, that’s a whole heap of extra clever.
I hate describing actors as ‘troubled’ or ‘wild’ but troubled wild man Tom Sizemore celebrates his birthday as well today. Sizemore has appeared in Strange Days, Natural Born Killers and Saving Private Ryan.
80′s star Andrew McCarthy blows out 49 candles on his birthday cake, and The Lawnmower Man himself Jeff Fahey is 59 years young. Three time Academy Award nominated actress Diane Ladd is our first birthday girl today, she’s appeared in Chinatown, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore and Wild At Heart. Interesting fact for you, she co-starred with Andrew McCarthy in the 2004 series Kingdom Hospital, spooky.
The creator and star The Larry Saunders Show, Gary Shandling is 62 today. He was last seen as Senator Stern in Iron Man 2 which co-starred Don Cheadle, there’s just too many birthday movie crossovers today!
Finally Cathy Moriarty (Raging Bull) and Scary Movie Veteran Anna Faris celebrates today, she’s always been a warm and sassy actress it’s just a shame she rarely finds decent material.
