Richard Jenkins

Happy Birthday to

Richard Jenkins

64 today

He's been around for years, paying his dues in television, stage and screen (including a minor role in Hannah and her Sisters) but it took an ethereal but very human role of the deceased patriach in "Six Feet Under" for Jenkins to really be noticed by casting directors. Sinc then he's been a highlight in many movies, earning his first Oscar nomination for 2007's The Visitor. Coming soon are shaggy dog tale Darling Companion and, at the other end of the scale, card game con artists gangster movie Cogan's Trade.
