Hal Holbrook

Happy Birthday to

Hal Holbrook

86 today

There are two roles that define the career of this enigmatic character actor. On stage he excelled in his one-man Mark Twain show, winning a Tony in 1966, in film he will always be the voice of Nixonian whistle blower Deep Throat in All the President's Men. Next up is a role in Water for Elephants where he plays an older Robert Pattinson - which must be sobering for the Twilight fans.

Weird pic, he seems to be morphing into Angela Lansbury.

It's odd as I don't think I've ever seen Hal and Angela in the same room.

Double take.
