Celebrity Birthdays

ConMan mentioned that his birthday is today (11/23), the anniversary of JFK’s assassination. Out of curiosity, I looked up in The Internet Movie Database to see what celebrities had this infamous date as a birthday.

Well, there were plenty of them, but only two (Boris Karloff & George O’Hanlon [“George Jetson”]) that I recognized.

Strangely, on my birthday (10/28) there are several that I recognize: Joaquin (Leaf) Phoenix, Julia Roberts, Andy Richter, Jami Gertz, Daphne Zuniga, Lauren Holly, Bill Gates, Annie Potts, Bruce Jenner, Telma Hopkins, Dennis Franz, Michael Crichton, Jane Alexander, Charlie Daniels, Joan Plowright, and Edith Head.

How 'bout you? Do many celebrities that you’ve heard of share your birthday? (Click here, then enter your birthday in the input fields in the left margin.)

I share my birthday, March 13, 1980, with William H. Macey, in 1950, and the planet Pluto (discovery, anyway) in 1930.

Well, on the imdb site, I only recognized a few names:
Melvin Van Peebles, Wilt Chamberlain, Taurean Blacque.

The name of Taurean Blacque brought me back to earlier days! I used to watch regularly Hill Street Blues.

On this site: Famous Birthdays I was lucky enough to find Count Basie! It’s always nice to know you share a birthday with a member of the nobility. Anybody for a “Taxi War Dance”?

My b-day (8/18) is either a day before or a day after President Clintons. Not that it really matters, but kinda interesting anyways.
