In other news...

cloudchaser_s suggested we all look up folks born on our birthdates, and I found  rather a lot of interesting ones in imdb:


Amongst those I recognized..

John Bunyan (1628)
William Blake (1757)
Friedrich Engles (1820)
Samuel Colt (1909)
Rita Mae Brown (1944)

I looked up those on my exact birthday:
Ed Harris (1950) - which happens to be my own birth year and good NIGHT what a filmography this guy has. I'm impressed...

Ed Harris
Oh, yeah.

One of the taglines in his IMDB listing is "the thinking woman's sex symbol".

I'd never looked him up there before, but I've seen him in all sorts of odd and interesting parts. _The Right Stuff_ was apparently his breakout from primarily TV work, it looks like, followed relatively shortly by _Apollo 13_. He's not afraid to take interesting parts in independent movies, and he's produced some of his own, too. That version of _Riders of the Purple Sage_ was one of those projects.

Ed Harris - Now That's Fun.
I couldn't find anything in the huge list on IMDb for me. No one I knew on my actual birthday (they were all European actors).
I found the Wikipedia list easier to slog through.
There I found Toby Maguire, Bob Keesham (yep Captain Kangaroo), and Bruce Johnston (a Beach Boy). Oh and Ross (I Could Buy the Presidency) Perot. In the longer gone department - Helen Keller, who everyone always tells me about, and Antoinette Perry (the Tony Awards are named for her) which everyone doesn't, though the Miracle Worker (which is a play about Helen Keller) did get a Tony Award.
Life is curious.
