Happy Birthday: Robert Forster

robertforsterHappy Birthday actor Robert Forster

Born: July 13, 1941 in Rochester, New York, USA

Once worked as a door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman.

QUOTES:

[Talking about luck in the movie business] I’m not sure how a guy wins or loses in this business, but somebody’s got to come along and make you lucky. You can’t do it yourself.

[Talking about his character in Jackie Brown (1997)] This is the great noir hero. If Humphrey Bogart or Robert Mitchum were around today, they’d be playing that role.

Happy Birthday: Colton Haynes

coltonhaynesHappy Birthday actor Colton Haynes

Born: July 13, 1988 in Wichita, Kansas, USA

Was considered for the role of Edward Cullen in Twilight (2008). The role went to Robert Pattinson.

QUOTES:

I don’t really pay attention to the rumors cause at the end of the day, that’s exactly what they are. Anyone can go online and write anything they want about people they don’t even know and most of the time, that is fueled by hate. The sad part is that people actually believe what they read online. A lot of people are more interested in wondering if Beyoncé Knowles is pregnant or who Taylor Swift is dating instead of recognizing them for their hard work and talent. It sucks. Work is work and what I’ve done thus far has gotten me to where I am today and I’m thankful for that. [Interview, November 2010].

Happy Birthday: Ken Jeong

Married to:
Dr. Tran Ho (September 2004 – present) (2 children)

As of March 30, 2015, the Medical Board of California lists his medical license (65869) as “Renewed & Current” (meaning he meets requirements for the practice of medicine in California) until July 31, 2016. He is licensed to practice medicine under his birth name, Kendrick Kang-Joh Jeong. This means that despite his successful career as an actor in film and television, Jeong so far continues to maintain his ability to return to his first career as a medical doctor.
