Happy Birthday: Sasha Jackson

sashajackson.jpgSasha Jackson

Born: August 1, 1988 in Old Windsor, Berkshire, England, UK

Her combination of stage combat, athleticism, comic timing and tongue-in-cheek wit have generated a cult following of her alter ego “Action Jackson” (aka “AJ”) in the Kick Ass series of action/comedy short films.

Had to pass on both the lead roles of “Rachel Thomas” in “Wild Things: The Birthright” and of “Hope Blanchard” in Below the Beltway (2010), due to overlapping dates with other filming commitments.

Happy Birthday: Dom DeLuise (1933–2009)

domdeluise.jpgDom DeLuise (1933–2009)

Born: August 1, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA
Died: May 4, 2009 (age 75) in Santa Monica, California, USA

The lovable, butterball comedian was a mainstay on 1960s and ’70s TV variety as a “second banana” or comedy relief player. While his harsher critics believed his schtick was better served in smaller doses, Dom nevertheless went on to find some range in a few moving, more restrained projects. Those few glimpses behind all the mirth and merriment revealed a dramatic actor waiting to be unleashed. As they say, behind every clown’s smile, one can find a few tears.

Happy Birthday: Jack O’Connell

jackoconnellJack O’Connell

Born: August 1, 1990 in Derby, England, UK

What’s important to me is the longevity. I want to create a body of work that is entertaining and speaks to people for a long time. Longer than my life span. They’re the real goals for me as an actor, not the fame side of things.
