November 12 in Sci-Fi History: Wallace Shawn (and Ryan Gosling and Anne Hathaway)

Today is the birthday of actor Wallace Shawn. You know him from The Princess Bride (1987).

 

Born in New York City in 1943, Shawn is an accomplished playwright and actor.

He shares a birthday with Ryan Gosling, who was born on this day in 1980. Yes, Blade Runner 2049 (2017) happened, but let's go with Young Hercules (1998-99).

 

And they BOTH share a birthday with Anne Hathaway, whose Catwoman rivaled only Eartha Kitt's (though, duh, Kitt’s was better). Anne was born on this day in 1982.

 

Happy birthday all around, team.

And tomorrow: The Invisible Man.
