Celebrity Birthday of the Day – April 11

Peter Riegert worked as a waiter, a teacher, and a social worker before becoming the damn good character actor that he is today! He made his Broadway debut in the musical Dance with Me, and appeared in a number of other Broadway productions such as The Old Neighborhood and The Nerd. He had strong film and television debuts, appearing in episodes of M*A*S*H and as Boon in National Lampoon’s Animal House. Some of Riegerts other notable film and TV credits include Local Hero, Crossing Delancey, Oscar, The Mask, Traffic, Family Guy, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Seinfeld, and The Sopranos. Personally, I think I’ll always know him best as Lt. Kellaway from The Mask, because man, I loved that movie when I was a kid. Peter Riegert turns 65 today.
