Happy Birthday: Harry Dean Stanton

harrydeanstanton.jpgHappy Birthday actor Harry Dean Stanton

Born: July 14, 1926 in West Irvine, Kentucky, USA

Critic Roger Ebert so admires him that he created the “Stanton-Walsh Rule,” which states that “no movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad.” Ebert later admitted that Dream a Little Dream (1989), in which Stanton appeared, was a “clear violation” of this rule.

Happy Birthday: Jackie Earle Haley

jackieearlehaley.jpgHappy Birthday actor Jackie Earle Haley

Born: July 14, 1961 in Northridge, California, USA

Married to:
Amelia Cruz (6 August 2004 – present)
Jennifer Hargrave (1985 – ?) (divorced) (2 children)
Sherry Vaughan (6 November 1979 – ?) (divorced)

Has earned rave reviews in 2006 in an unanticipated comeback with his roles in All the King’s Men (2006) and Little Children (2006). Having not done a movie since 1993 and moonlighting here and there as a commercial director, limousine driver, furniture refinisher, security officer and pizza deliverer in Texas, Haley happened to be “just remembered” for his earlier films by director Steven Zaillian for his role in All the King’s Men and the ball started rolling.
