Today’s Birthdays – December 25

Compiled by Cat Eldridge:

Born December 25, 1928 Dick Miller. He’s appeared in over a hundred films including every film directed by Dante. You’ve seen him in both Gremlins, The Little Shop of Horrors, Terminator, The Howling, Small Soldiers, Twilight Zone: The Movie, Amazon Women on the Moon, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm where he voiced the gravelly voiced Chuckie Sol, and Oberon in the excellent  “The Ties That Bind” episode of Justice League Unlimited. (Died 2019.)

Born December 25, 1939 Royce D. Applegate.  His best known role was that of Chief Petty Officer Manilow Crocker on the first season of seaQuest DSV. He’s got appearances in Quantum Leap, Twin Peaks (where he played Rev. Clarence Brocklehurst), Tales of the Unexpected and Supertrain. (Died 2003.)

Born December 25, 1945 Rick Berman, 74. Loved and loathed in equaled measures, he’s known for his work as the executive producer of Next Gen, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise which he co-created with Brannon Braga. He’d be lead producer on the four Next Generation films: Generations, First Contact (which I like), Insurrection and Nemesis

Born December 25, 1952 CCH Pounder, 67. She’s had one very juicy voice role running through the DC Universe from since Justice League Unlimited in 2006. If you’ve not heard her do this role, it worth seeing the animated Assault on Arkham Asylum which is far superior to the live action Suicide Squad film to hear her character. She also had a recurring role as Mrs. Irene Frederic on Warehouse 13 as well. She’s also been in X-Files, Quantum Leap, White Dwarf (horrid series), Gargoyles, Millennium, House of Frankenstein and Outer Limits,  Film wise, she shows up in Robocop 3, Tales from the Crypt presents Demon Knight, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and several of the forthcoming Avatar films.

Born December 25, 1984 Georgia Moffett, 35. She’s the daughter of actor Peter Davison, the man who was Fifth Doctor, and she’s married to David Tennant who was the Tenth Doctor.  She played opposite the Tenth Doctor as Jenny in “The Doctor’s Daughter” and in she voiced ‘Cassie’ in the animated Doctor Who: Dreamland which is now on iTunes and Amazon. And yes, she’s in The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot as herself.

  1. “Christmas Tree Flavor Salted Crisps”? What the heck does that even mean?

    Edit: Well, that didn’t work. What site generates code for emojis that can be pasted in the comments here and show up? I don’t remember where it was.

  2. @Bonnie
    I don’t want to try them. (It sounds like last year’s Green Mermaid idea: juniper-flavored coffee concoctions. The reviews were Not Good.)

  3. You need to be sure to include the semicolon at the end, Bonnie. The preview will show the emoji without it, but once the comment is posted, if the semicolon isn’t there, it will just be a text string.

    🙄

  4. Meredith Moment Redux (I also posted it in yesterday’s Scroll): Neal Stephenson’s Fall; or, Dodge in Hell is currently $3.99.
