The birthday-girl of the day was born 24 years ago on this day, July 7th, in Ireland, as daughter of Ali Hewson and (U2's) Bono.

Father and daughter

She may not be a household name to filmfans yet (though she recently starred in HBO's The Knick), but that will change after the next film she co-stars in, will open this Fall: that will be Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies.


The name of this young star-to-be is Eve Hewson.

Happy Birthday Eve and we hope to see something great from you, come next October...

Ronny.

We all love Jurassic Park's Dr. Alan Grant, right? Of course we do -- he's completely awesome! One of the wonderful things about Jurassic Park was the evolution of Dr. Grant's character from not exactly being the biggest fan of kids in general, to being the one person who does the most to save and protect Lex and Tim, John Hammond's grandchildren.

In light of that, this moving tribute to Dr. Grant is spot-on. Enjoy!

Sylvester and Butkus Stallone

Today is (also) Sylvester Stallone's Birthday.

He was born on July 6 1946 and, rose to fame portraying the character Rocky Balboa in the film Rocky, in 1976 (and later this year, after 39 years he will return to this character in the first spin-off from the Rocky-series: Creed).

Stallone recording for Antz

Over the course of his 45 year career, Sylvester Stallone has starred in, written and/or directed over 100 films and TV-series, and so it isn't strange that he even found time to work for/with DreamWorks during those years. 

Z (voiced by Woody Allen) and Weaver (voiced by Sylvester Stallone)

He actually was one of the (voice) stars of the first (Computer) Animated Feature, released by DreamWorks Animation: Antz.


 
In 2005 Sylvester had a recurring role in two episodes of DreamWorks Television's action-drama series Vegas. In it he portrayed Frank the Repairman, one of the (many) former friends of the Casino Owner Ed Deline (James Caan).

And the last couple of months he stars in a very successful series of advertisement (in the Netherlands that is) for a barbecue-sauce, filmed in Expendables-style.



Happy Birthday Mr. Stallone.

Ronny.

Today we wish a very Happy Birthday to actor Ned Beaty who was born on on this day, July 6th 1937, and has over 160 films and tv-appearances credited to his name in just over 40 years of acting.


Beatty receiving instructions from director Spielberg.

Spielberg-lovers might remember him from his appearance in 1941, back in 1979, where he portrayed Ward Douglas, a regular American guy, who had some trouble keeping the army out of his house during the thread of the attack of a Japanese submarine on the US.


In 1994 he had a major part in LucasFilm's  (commercially not very successful) production of Radioland Murders.




In the cromedy/crime drama Radioland Murders (directed by Mel Smith) Beatty played the part of General Wart Whalen. 

If not for it's success, the film will probably be mostly remembered for being one of the first films that made extensive use of Computer generated sets (and the fact that the film had been in production for 20 years, and was originally to be directed by George Lucas).

Happy Birthday Mr. Beatty.

Ronny.
