Celebrity Birthday of the Day – August 17

Honestly, I almost didn’t pick Robert De Niro for today’s Celebrity Birthday because how can I be expected to sum up this acting legend’s entire life in a single paragraph? De Niro is, without a doubt, one of the greatest actors of all time, and his filmography is stellar, including such titles as Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter, Goodfellas, Casino, Mean Streets, Brazil, The King of Comedy, Midnight Run, Heat, Wag The Dog, Jackie Brown, Stardust, Machete, Raging Bull (which won him an Oscar), and The Godfather Part 2 (which did as well). He’s not without his stinkers, mind you – Little Fockers comes to mind – but regardless, Robert De Niro is an inspiration to aspiring actors everywhere. He turns 68 today.
