Celebrity Birthdays Today: Robert Redford, Christian Slater, Malcolm-Jamal Warner & More!

August 18, 2011

Several celebrities are a year older today. Just who are celebrating birthdays, you ask?

Robert Redford

Robert Redford turns 75 today. Just the other day I was watching the classic ‘The Way We Were’. Sigh…loved that movie. I could watch that film over and over again and never grow tired of it. What’s the latest with the 75-year-old actor/producer/director? His next undertaking, the movie ‘The Company You Keep’, will have a star studded cast. Already tapped for the thriller are Shia LaBeouf, Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, Richard Jenkins and Stephen Root, who was just announced today as an addition to the cast. With Redford directing, who would really say no to this project?

Christian Slater

Christian Slater is 42 years old today. His show, ‘Breaking In’, was unfortunately canceled in May, but could there be some hope of the Fox comedy making a return for a second season? Maybe, according Odette Annable, who spoke with TV Guide about the possibility of a Season 2. I hope so! I enjoyed watching Slater on the tube, albeit seven episodes. Fingers crossed!

Malcolm Jamal Warner

Can you believe the former Cosby kid is 41 years old today? Malcolm-Jamal Warner is looking better than evah! Did you catch him on ‘Community’ when he made the ‘Cosby Show’ reference? Ahh, homage to the ever popular Cosby sweaters, ha ha, loved it! Warner is currently filming ‘Reed Between the Lines’ a BET comedy that will debut in the fall, which he co-stars with Tracee Ellis Ross.
