Celebrity Birthday of the Day – February 29

Today, we have a bonus Celebrity Birthday. You see, I always thought that people born on February 29th in a leap year got a bum deal with birthdays. They only get an official birthday once every four years. And since this year is not a leap year, I wanted to recognize Dennis Farina. After a number of bit roles in the ’80s, he got a role in Manhunter. This was definitely a career boost, as he followed it up with a lead role in the television series “Crime Story” and a role in Midnight Run. After a few years, he saw a surge of popularity in the ’90s with roles in Another Stakeout, Striking Distance, Little Big League, Get Shorty, Out of Sight, and Saving Private Ryan. In the next few years, he appeared in Reindeer Games, Snatch, Big Trouble, Paparazzi, RocknRolla, and a two-season stint on “Law & Order”. Look for him in another upcoming TV series called “Luck” about life at a horse-racing track.
