Celebrity Birthdays January 24: Mischa Barton, Ed Helms, Neil Diamond & More

January 24, 2012

Happy Tuesday, readers! What do you think of the Oscar noms? Did your favorites get a nod? I am loving the fact that Melissa McCarthy was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her hilarious role as Megan in “Bridesmaids”. Well deserved! Oh, and kudos to McCarthy’s co-star Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo for their nomination for Best Original Screenplay. Yay! Okay, got a little off topic there for a bit, sorry. Just very excited to see “Bridesmaids” recognized. Anyhoo, in today’s edition of celebrity birthdays, a former “Fresh Prince” star turned soap actress turns 33, “Shaggy” is 42 and a “Don’t Know Much” Neville brother is 71. Guess who?

Mischa Barton

Happy Birthday, Mischa Barton! “The O.C.” actress is 26 years old today. Looks like we’ll be seeing a lot of Mischa this year, filming has begun on yet another horror flick she has been tapped to star in, “I Will Follow You Into The Dark”, and she recently completed filming “Apartment 1303: 3D”. “Into the Darkness” is scheduled for a 2013 release.

Ed Helms

Happy Birthday, Ed Helms! “The Office” and “Hangover” star is 37 years old today. In addition to seeing Helms every Thursday night as Andy Bernard in “The Office”, you can catch him on the silver screen come March, when his latest flick, “Jeff, Who Lives At Home” comes out, co-starring Jason Segel, Susan Sarandon and Judy Greer. Looks like a good one, check out the trailer below.

Neil Diamond

Happy Birthday, Neil Diamond! The “Love On The Rocks” singer is 71 years old today. Love is certainly not on the rocks for the recent Kennedy Center Honors recipient, because last September he popped the question to his girlfriend/manager Katie McNeil. Looks like the nuptials will take place sometime this spring, before heading out on tour again.
