January 27th


  • Alan Cumming is 57 (“Cabaret,” “Emma,” “GoldenEye,” the “Spy Kids” trilogy, “Son of the Mask,” “The Good Wife”)
  • James Cromwell is 82 (“Babe,” “A. Confidential,” “The Green Mile,” “Space Cowboys,” “W.,” The Artist,” “Six Feet Under,” “24,” “American Horror Story: Asylum”)
  • Bridget Fonda is 58 (“Scandal,” “You Can't Hurry Love,” “The Godfather Part III,” “Single White Female,” “Singles,” “Rough Magic,” “Jackie Brown”) (FAST FACT: She’s been married to composer and former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman since 2003 – and has essentially been retired from acting since then. But it’s assumed that her retirement has less to do with the marriage, and more to do with the serious car crash in February 2003 – as we know she at least suffered a vertebral fracture.)

  • Mimi Rogers is 66 (“Gung Ho,” “The X-Files,” “Two and a Half Men,” “Wilfred,” “Mad Men”) (FAST FACT: She was Tom Cruise’s first wife – they were married from 1982 – 1990 and she’s the person who introduced him to Scientology. The REAL irony? He may still be a true blue Scientologist, but she’s reportedly left the church behind.)
  • The late Troy Donahue (1936-2001)…he would have been 86 (“A Summer Place,” “Surfside 6”)
