If we’re not celebrating the birthday of a character actor on The Back Row, chances are good that we’re celebrating the birthday of someone associated with auteur Joss Whedon! That’s the case with today’s celebrity birthday boy – Jesse Williams. Williams began his career as a model and stage actor, and moved into television in 2006 with a role on Law & Order. Two years later he made his feature film debut in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2, and since then he’s appeared in TV shows such as Greek, Beyond the Break, and Grey’s Anatomy, and in the film Brooklyn’s Finest. I’ll admit that I haven’t seen a single thing that Williams appeared in before this year…when he starred in The Cabin in the Woods.
To say that I loved that movie would be a gross understatement. I adored The Cabin in the Woods, which is what makes me feel that Jesse Williams is a celebrity whose birthday is worth celebrating. I’m very interested to see what he does next! Jesse Williams turns 31 today.
