Who's behind door #9?

TWO beloved actors with DOZENS of TV-movie roles between them share a birthday today. Yes, it's Beau Bridges and Michael Nouri... Love the hats, guys!

Beau, who turns 67, will be forever remembered (by me) for his association with two of the most memorable titles ever given to TV movies: 1992's The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom and 1989's Everybody's Baby: The Rescue of Jessica McClure. (Seriously, I don't think there's a day that goes by without some TV station in the world showing that one. And I think it's usually Movies24.)

Nouri's just 63, and his sterling TV-movie work includes the excellent, Barbara Eden-starring thriller Eyes of Terror (1994) as well as a host of Danielle Steele and Sidney Sheldon adaptations.

Happy 9th Day of Madvent, gentlemen! Oh, and enjoy your birthdays too.

I like both of the actors too. I REALLY like Beau Bridges. In fact, I pretty adore the whole family. Nice pool of talent. I saw Lloyd in a Three Stooges short once. I mean, wow.

I've seen Eyes of Terror and it's pretty good. Eden sort of makes everything a little bit better...

I think I have that Baby Jessica movie on VHS. I have ONE of them... is this the same one where Will Oldham plays Jessica's father?? Hilarious.

That's the one, Fox! Even the title of that movie cracks me up, for some reason.
