Happy Birthday, Potsie!

Triple-threat singer, actor and director Anson Williams was born on this day in 1949.

Anson Williams Fun Fact: He is the second cousin of Henry Heimlich, the American physician credited with the development of the "Heimlich Maneuver".

Other September 25 birthdays worth noting:

Cheryl Tiegs (1947) - the 70's Super Model who's iconic pink bikini poster was a source of endless fascination for Teenage Michael and will be forever burned in the my brain (I mean that in a good way).

Mark Hamill (1951) - American actor best known for his role as Luke Skywalker.

Christopher Reeve (1952-2004) - Late American actor who will forever be the real Superman to a generation of movie-goers (I"m talking to you, Brandon Routh).

Michael Madsen (1958) - American actor and king of direct to video movies.

Heather Locklear (1961) - American actress, model and staple of Aaron Spelling television shows (she appeared in 7 of them). If I were a producer I'd cast her in as many shows as possible too.

Michael Douglas (1944) and Catherine Zeta-Jones (1969) - Yes, both husband and wife in this May-December marriage share the same birthday.
