October 6 in Sci-Fi History: Sisto & Shue

Contributed by

It was on this day in 1963 in the town of Wilmington, Delaware, that Elisabeth Shue was born.

 

She got her major break in The Karate Kid (1984) but would go on to star in Adventures in Babysitting (1987), which … come ON! She would also eventually replace Claudia Wells as Jennifer in the Back to the Future movies.

 

Today is also the birthday of Jeremy Sisto, born on this day in 1974 in Grass Valley, California.

 

Sisto got his start playing Kevin Kline and Mary McDonnell's son in Grand Canyon but is perhaps best known for his time on Six Feet Under. Again, it's not a science fiction or fantasy show, but it really, really seems like it should be.

Tomorrow: The Governator.
