Today's birthdays

Who shares a birthday with me?

Shannon Elizabeth (AMERICAN PIE) and Diane Farr (THE JOB and MTV's LOVELINE) were born on the same day in the same year. Others with birthdays today include Evan Rachel Wood (THIRTEEN), Devon Sawa (IDLE HANDS), former Major League Baseball players Darren Bragg and Joe Rudi, model and B-movie actress Angie Everhart, OSAMA director Siddiq Barmak, syrupy song composer Diane Warren, pianist Michael Feinstein, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' keyboardist Benmont Tench, Corbin Bernsen (L.A. LAW), film composer Mark Isham (OCTOBER SKY, THE COOLER), The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, Julie Kavner (voice of Marge on THE SIMPSONS), disco queen Gloria Gaynor (the ubiquitous "I Will Survive"), Italian horror master Dario Argento (SUSPIRIA, PHENOMENA), and jazz musician Sonny Rollins.

Rocker Buddy Holly, former basketball coach and TV analyst Al McGuire, Rat Pack member Peter Lawford (OCEAN'S ELEVEN), director Elia Kazan (A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, ON THE WATERFRONT), and artist Grandma Moses have all passed on but were born on this day.

And, just for kicks, married on this day include former 24 stars Xander Berkeley and Sarah Clarke, the short-lived Janet Jackson-James DeBarge union in 1984, and Rita Hayworth and Orson Welles in 1943.

This fascinating information and more was found at the Internet Movie Database.
