Happy Birthday actor David Alan Grier
Born: June 30, 1955 in Detroit, Michigan, USA
Tony nomination for playing Jackie Robinson in “The First”.
He got off to a very fast start in show biz, moving from Yale Drama School right to a lead role in a Broadway musical “The First”. A surprising beginning in a serious, though musical role, considering his impressive comedic talent. Co-starred with Lonette McKee.
