While most sci-fi fans know her from Firefly, I remember Gina Torres from her earlier appearances in the pulpy Cleopatra 2525 and even her guest spots in Alias. She continues working in the industry to this day, garnering an impressive number of small but significant roles in every production she seeks. Torres was born on this day back in 1969.…Continue

Legendary director Richard Donner celebrates his birthday today. Back in the 70's, Donner was tapped to bring Superman - The Movie to the big screen; and the ambitious project was initially conceived as a two-part film, with the events of the first picture setting up what was to follow in Superman II. However -- as can happen in Hollywood -- there was some creative differences, and much of what Donner had planned for the sequel ended up being re-envisioned by director Richard Lester.

Those of us old school sci-fi fans have fond memories of Lee Majors as The Six Million Dollar Man. An astronaut injured in the crash of an experimental craft, Steve Austin was alive. Barely alive.

She brought her immeasurable charm to such sleeper hits as The Last Starfighter, and her pluckiness elevated even such forgettable fare as Night of the Comet. She's continued to work off and on over the years, but unfortunately she's never found the kind of fanboy acclaim she experienced during her early career.
Stewart was born on this day in 1959.…Continue

The prissy Brit James McAvoy may not think much of America or Americans, but he's still happy to appear as part of an American franchise as powerful as the X-Men. He headlined X-Men: First Class, a rowdy 60's inspired origins film for Charles Xavier and his band of mutant strongmen (and strongwomen!). Mr. McAvoy was born on this day back in 1979.Continue
