Happy 50th birthday to actor/comedian Eddie Murphy! I’ve had mixed experiences with the one of the funniest people in the world but the photo pictured above represents a positive encounter with the star. I am such a big fan of his work from his standup days to his hilarious appearances on Saturday Night Live to his movies such as “Boomerang” and “Coming To America.” I even listen to the Rick James produced songs “Boogie In Your Butt” as well as “Party All The Time” quite frequently as they are still funky as hell. Happy birthday Eddie!
Also born on this day: actress Jennie Garth, actor David Hyde Pierce, Alec Baldwin, Marlon Brando, singers Tony Orlando, Doris Day and Wayne Newton.
