# DXXXVII…Famous “Fiery” Cousin…

April 21st, as I just found out, is the birthday of “The Flash” recurring guest star Robbie Amell (1988), who is the cousin of “Arrow” star Stephen Amell, as if you couldn’t tell!  Being the cousin of the CW star must not be all roses and clover but Robbie is here on this list because of what he’s accomplished, so far in his relatively short career…and what is yet to come.

As you already know, his guest spots on the second CW hit, as the “anti-hero” FIRESTORM (on the show, it is actually F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M., but I can’t recall what the acronym stands for) and his leading role in the short-lived series “The Tomorrow People” really accentuate this young man’s burgeoning career.  He also starred in the movie, “The Duff”, which (regrettably at this time) I haven’t seen and is releasing another movie in 2016.

Not too shabby for a guy that had dreams of playing hockey until he was bitten by the acting bug…Many happy more to you, Mr. Robbie Amell…

Among his birthday twins are; late veteran actor Anthony Quinn (1915-2001), Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (1926), actor Charles Grodin and former New Jersey governor (1982-1990, when I was growing up) Thomas Kean (1935), singer/actor Iggy Pop (1947), actress/singer Patti LuPone (1949) and veteran actor (“Who’s The Boss”, “Taxi”, etc.) Tony Danza was born in 1951.

Celebrating with them are; former wrestling star {and 2019 Hall of Famer} (WWF) Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake (1957), veteran actress Andie MacDowell (1958), The Cure’s frontman Robert Smith (1959), former NHL goalie phenom Ed Belfour (1965), late ECW superstar Axl Rotten (1971-2016), the drummer for the band Nightwish (awesome band…check ‘em out), Jukka Nevalainen (1978), current “X-Men” headmaster James McAvoy (1979) and former Dallas Cowboys’ “field general” Tony Romo was born in 1980.

As always, thanks for “listening”…it means a lot to me…Sinceriously!
