27 October 2013
Hunter Ansley Wryn b. 1994 (Serenity)
Andrea Riseborough b. 1981 (Oblivion)
Jeff East b. 1957 (Superman, The Day After)
Robert Picardo b. 1953 (Star Trek: Voyager, Innerspace, Gremlins 2, Star Trek: First Contact, Stargate SG-1)
Peter Firth b. 1953 (Lifeforce, Mighty Joe Young)
Angus MacInness (Star Wars, Space:1999)
Ivan Reitman b. 1946 (director, Ghostbusters, My Super Ex-Girlfriend)
John Cleese b. 1939 (Shrek, Harry Potter, The Day the Earth Stood Still)
Interesting list today. Hunter Ansley Wryn played the younger version of River Tan in Serenity and Jeff East played the younger version of Clark Kent in Superman. John Cleese may be the best known face on the list and Angus MacInness was Gold Leader in the original Star Wars, but for roles in genre, Robert Picardo deserves the Picture Slot this first year.
Many happy returns to all our birthday boys and girls.
Five fun facts from 2015!
Prediction: Hand held alpha wave generator to induce sleep.
Predictor: Back to the Future: Part II, released 22 November 1989
Reality: Oh, great! A handheld roofie that has no pharmacological trace. I see no way this valuable device will ever be used for anything but honorable purposes, such as... eliminating a character the writer doesn't know how to use in the scene by putting her to sleep.
This is our last Back to the Future: Part II post this year. There will be 10 fun facts in 2014 and 15 fun facts in 2015.
Look one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
Once again our regularly scheduled Monday prediction is preempted for an exact date, this time from Whitley Strieber.
Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!
