Michael Shannon

Happy Birthday to

Michael Shannon

37 today

Michael is a stage trained actor who's transition to movies has been mainly due to two of three films that showcased his wide ranging abilities - just watch Bug where he reprises his stage performance to great effect. Coming up soon is an as yet unnamed role with Gerard Butler in Machine Gun Preacher, I guess we'll know more after Toronto.

He is an interesting screen presence. I only saw him in Revolutionary Road, but he seems to have the ability to change completely to play a role.

He's turned up in quite a few films where you may have missed him, with a suitable presence in a minor role such as World Trade Centre and Before the Devil Knows your Dead.
