With the bad pun securely in place, I will now tell you why it’s there…today is the 43rd birthday of the current actor playing Captain Cold, the villainous nemesis (and soon to be in the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow spinoff) of The Flash, Mr. Wentworth Miller. He was also the main character from 2005 to 2009 on Fox’ hit show, Prison Break (along with a couple of other stars that have leaped to either The Flash or Arrow!
Although I never caught his run in Prison Break, his portrayal of the villain (anti-hero?) on the CW hit is something magical. I mean, the guy speaks like a cold, heartless person and yet, he doesn’t always cause trouble. Unlike the other villains, it’s by not playing it over-the-top that appeals to me.
He is also celebrating with; former Tarzans Johnny Weissmuller (1904-1984) and Ron Ely (1938), veteran actor Stacy Keach (1941), The Rolling Stones’ drummer Charlie Watts (1941), former “Beaver” Jerry Mathers (1948) and comedian Dana Carvey was born in 1955.
Also, celebrating today are; The Bangles’ bassist Michael Steele (1955), former wrestler Lex Luger (1958), race car phenom Kyle Petty (1960), comedian/singer Wayne Brady (1972), the latest “Spock”, Zachary Quinto (1977), former TNA wrestling star A.J. Styles (1978) and current TNA Knockout, Velvet Sky was born in 1981.
