Celebrity Birthdays Today: Kristen Wiig, Ty Burrell, Howie Dorough and More!

August 22, 2011

It’s a big celebrity birthday celebration today! Find out who turned another year older and perhaps a little bit wiser?

Kristen Wiig

Happy Birthday, Kristen Wiig! The hilarious actress/comedian from Saturday Night Live is 38 years old today. If you haven’t seen her latest film, Bridesmaids, you are definitely missing out, it was by far one of my favorite movies of the summer. Melissa McCarthy did steal the show, though eh? Thank you, Kristen, for writing this hilarious comedy and proving that we women can be just as raunchy as the men on the silver screen. Heh.

Ty Burrell

Happy Birthday, Ty Burrell! The Modern Family actor is 44 years old today. Oh, Phil Dunphy, how I love thee! Burrell is my favorite to win in the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series category at this year’s Emmy Awards. He, along with three of his castmates are up for the honor as well – Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet (last year’s winner) and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Chris Colfer of Glee and Jon Cryer of Two and a Half Men round out the nominees. We will find out soon enough when this year’s awards will be telecast on Sunday, September 18th with Jane Lynch serving as host for the evening.

Howie Dorough

Happy Birthday, Howie Dorough! The Backstreet Boys singer turns 38 years old today. Dorough and the Backstreet Boys, together with New Kids on the Block, wrapped up their summer tour earlier this month, which helped many reminisce of the days when these boy bands were at the height of their careers. Do you remember those days, ladies? Watch for Howie’s upcoming solo album, Back To Me, set to drop in November.
