When it comes to playing chiselled, square-jawed badasses, Adam Baldwin is among the best actors for the job. Since he made his film debut in 1980’s My Bodyguard, Baldwin (no relation to Alec or any of the other Baldwin brothers) has appeared in numerous popular films and television shows, gaining much fame for his early role in Full Metal Jacket as Animal Mother. Other notable credits on Baldwin’s resume include Predator 2, Wyatt Earp, Independence Day, The Patriot, The Outer Limits, The X-Files, CSI: Miami, Stargate SG-1, CSI: NY, Castle, and of course, Firefly and its accompanying film Serenity. Our love for him now ain’t hard to explain! Adam Baldwin turns 51 today.
