Happy Birthday: John Candy (1950–1994)

WILDsound Festival

johncandyJohn Candy (1950–1994)

Born: October 31, 1950 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Died: March 4, 1994 (age 43) in Durango, Mexico

I think I may have become an actor to hide from myself. You can escape into a character.

[on Ghostbusters (1984)] Harold [Ramis] had called and things just didn’t go well with the negotiations on it. We didn’t see eye to eye on certain things and the rest is history. But Rick [Moranis] did a great job with it.

[on Who’s Harry Crumb? (1989)] It offered me a lot of different characters to play and it was a lot of fun.

Happy Birthday: Rob Schneider

Married to:
Patricia Schneider (23 April 2011 – present) (2 children)
Helena Schneider (1 October 2002 – ?) (divorced)
London King (25 September 1988 – 1 September 1990) (divorced) (1 child)

[on stand-up comedy] I’m still figuring it out. I delve into what’s interesting to me. The fact that 400 people in America make more money combined than the 150 million people at the lower end of the tier is pretty outrageous. But where’s the joke? People aren’t going there to hear what I think about politics. They wanna laugh. I talk about my marriage, my family and stuff that people can, hopefully, relate to.

Happy Birthday: Stephen Rea

WILDsound Festival

stephenrea.jpgStephen Rea

Born: October 31, 1946 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK

[When asked why he would have a “special thanks” credit on the Ozzy Osbourne album “Diary of a Madman”] It isn’t me, man. There’s a travel agent in Belfast named “Stephen Rea”, and I found that out because people kept asking me that question over and over. There’s also a set designer named “Stephen Rea”, but that’s not me either!
