I rarely highlight the younger people on the birthday list but today’s post is about up-and-coming actress Danielle Panabaker, who (aside from being in movies like Sky High and 2009’s Friday the 13th) will be portraying Dr. Caitlin Snow on the upcoming series, The Flash, born on this date in 1987. She has already appeared in Arrow and I, like most of the internet-savvy readers, have seen the pilot episode…looking forward to this neophyte’s work in the future (especially if the comic book universe provides her upgrade).
Today is also the birthday of former MLB star Duke Snider (1926-2011), 60s Batman (and “mayor” of Quahog of “Family Guy”) Adam West was born in 1928, actor David McCallum (NCIS) was born in 1933, singer Bill Medley of The Righteous Brothers turns 74 today (1940), the late, rotund Cass Elliot (The Mamas and the Papas) was born in 1941 (1941-1974), former MLB star turned broadcaster Joe Morgan (1943), and actor Jeremy Irons was born in 1948.
Also, the voice of Pumbaa in The Lion King, actor Ernie Sabella was born in 1949, former The Runaways guitarist and solo icon Lita Ford (1958), chef Mario Batali (1960), country legendary diva Trisha Yearwood (1964), and talk show icon Jimmy Fallon celebrates his 40th today (1974).
Until Monday’s monumental 200th (this is Dal’s 199th)…
