Celebrity Birthday of the Day – July 9

Yesterday was Kevin Bacon’s birthday, and today is the birthday of one of his Apollo 13 co-stars, Tom Hanks! Tom Hanks is a guy who is impossible to hate. He seems like such a genuinely nice guy in his movies and in real life. Here is a guy who has an impressive number of ’80s classics under his belt, from Splash, Bachelor Party, and The Money Pit to Dragnet, The ‘burbs, Big (for which he was nominated for Best Actor), and Turner & Hooch. He can also be enjoyed in A League of Their Own, Sleepless in Seattle, Philadelphia (for which he received a Best Actor Oscar), Forrest Gump (for which he received another Best Actor Oscar), the Toy Story trilogy, Saving Private Ryan (for which he was nominated for Best Actor), The Green Mile, Cast Away (for which he was nominated yet again for Best Actor), Catch Me if You Can, The Terminal, The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and currently in Larry Crowne.
