It is with great honour that I give you John Hawkes as the Celebrity Birthday of the Day. Hawkes is an awesome character actor who has over 100 acting credits to his name and has played supporting roles alongside a myriad of huge celebrities, including Ray Liotta, John Cusack, Jamie Foxx, Colin Farrell, George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, Tim Curry, David Duchovny, Jackie Chan and more! Some of Hawkes’ more recent film and television credits include American Gangster, Deadwood and Winter’s Bone – a performance that garnered him an Academy Award nomination. In case you hadn’t gathered, Hawkes is a damn fine actor, and I can’t wait to see more of him! When asked about his craft, Hawkes’ response was “You never really forget who you are. If you did, you’d need to seek some professional help.” He turns 52 today.
