As today’s date, March 5th, hasn’t been covered here on my blog, I just thought I’d leave this short, poignant post about another co-star of the five-year-old CW drama…also from the book…
# xxxiv…Mr. Paul Blackthorne, aka Quentin Lance of “Arrow”…
Today, March 5th, is the birthdate of the very talented English actor Paul Blackthorne, who indelibly has become the owner of the role on the hit TV show, “Arrow”, of police Captain Quentin Lance (1969). Born in Wellington, England, his big break came in a Bollywood film called “Lagaan” in 2001.
His versatility in the acting industry has prepared him for his most grueling role of the captain chasing the vigilante (by the way, as of this writing, show is entering fourth season…talk about longevity!)…and he plays the role so well that I can’t see anyone else playing him…ever!
Other celebrity twins include; former “Hill Street Blues” lieutenant James Sikking (1934), former “Quantum Leap” co-star Dean Stockwell (1936), “Electric Avenue” singer Eddy Grant (1948), comedienne Marsha Warfield (1954), comic magician Penn Jillette (1955), late 80’s star Teena Marie (1956-2010), late trio member Andy Gibb (1958-1988), televangelist Joel Osteen (1963) and former Minnesota Timberwolves’ rookie phenom Wally Szczerbiak was born in 1977.
With my inner nerd now squelched, I leave you to regularly scheduled lives…but I’ll be back…believe in the left!!!!
