23 August 2013
Ray Park b. 1974 (X-Men, Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Heroes)
Aaron Douglas b. 1971 (Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, I, Robot)
Barbara Eden b. 1931 (I Dream of Jeannie, The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao)
Purists may complain that I Dream of Jeannie and even The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao have no place on a science fiction blog.
Personally, I hope purists like that will not notice, still too upset with yesterday's news that Ben Affleck will be Batman.
Many happy returns of the day to all our actors.
Prediction: August 23, 2000: A massive earthquake hits Southern California, turning an area from Malibu to Anaheim into an island
Predictor: Escape From L.A. released 8/9/1996
Reality: The original Escape From New York put the action sixteen years in the future, released in 1981 about the hellish days to come in 1997. This 1996 puts the bleak cityscape seventeen years in the future, but the prediction of a massive earthquake only four years forward. And of course, you need some disaster to turn L.A. into an island, or escape is not a difficult feat requiring the hiring of Snake Plissken.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
