Since I can never resist celebrating the birthday of Joss Whedon and his collaborators, today’s celebrity birthday boy is Fran Kranz! Kranz has basically spent his whole life acting, having decided upon it as a career when he was in elementary school. After graduating from Yale, Kranz moved into film and television acting, making his movie debut in a small role in Donnie Darko. Since then, Kranz has appeared in such films as Training Day, Orange County, Matchstick Men, The Village, The Cabin in the Woods, and Much Ado About Nothing. He is also known for his TV work with Whedon on Dollhouse and his work on the hilarious webseries JourneyQuest. Fran Kranz turns 32 today.
