sararamirez.jpgSara Ramirez

Born: August 31, 1975 in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico

Made her first video game voice acting debut as Lammy, the main protagonist of the PlayStation game “Um Jammer Lammy” from late 1998 to early 1999, and then in the summer of 1999 again due to U.S. censorship and religious and violent issues in Japan’s version of the game. She again made her recurring role as Lammy in the 2001-2002 PlayStation 2 game “PaRappa the Rapper 2”.

Happy Birthday: James Coburn (1928–2002)

[on Sam Peckinpah] Sam is, I think, a great filmmaker. Of course, he’s his own worst enemy. Sam is an unusual human being, and he needs to be treated like an unusual human being. He can create an atmosphere, whether he’s drunk, sober, pissed off or in a rage, or whatever. I mean, for about three or four hours a day, he’s a fucking genius. But the rest of the time he spends wallowing in a kind of emotional reaction to either good or bad memories.

Happy Birthday: Debbie Gibson

Born: August 31, 1970 in Brooklyn, New York, USA

Deborah Gibson is a creative force in the entertainment industry who does it all! She has single handedly transcended music and entertainment trends and fads. Deborah stands poised at the top, embarking on the second phase of her hugely successful pop career.

That it’s been almost two decades since “Out Of the Blue” and ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic has yet to parody even *one* of my songs makes me feel curiously left-out.

Happy Birthday: Chris Tucker

I think real life reflects your movies. In your life, you pick stuff that influences what movie roles you wanna pick. I think if you’ve got an interesting life, you wanna do interesting movies about interesting things.

Happy Birthday: Richard Gere

richardgere.jpgRichard Gere

Born: August 31, 1949 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Pretty Woman (1990) is something I never would have done. Neither is An Officer and a Gentleman (1982). I had no interest in these scripts whatsoever. It was the same person knocking my door down on both of them, Jeffrey Katzenberg, first at Paramount, then at Disney, who was one of my first friends out here and still is. At the point of Pretty Woman (1990), I had been kind of out of things for a while. I consciously [had] just said, “Going off to do other things” and I fucked up my career to the point where [people weren’t saying], “Well, let’s get Gere to do that”. I had to crawl a little bit to get scripts. Doing Internal Affairs (1990), for instance, was a very difficult decision for me to make because, potentially, that could have been such a piece of shit. It turns out to be one of my favorite movies and best experiences, too.
