Taylor Spreitler from "Melissa and Joey" and "Kevin Can Wait" turns 25 today. Yeah, I've never heard of her either.

Emilia Clarke from "Game of Thrones" turns 32 today. She is the highest-paid actress on a network TV show, earning -- are you ready for this? $2.6 million per episode.

Ryan Reynolds turns 42 today, although he is Deadpool to me. He plans a quiet night at home, sitting around and blowing out his Green Lantern. He's married to Blake Lively, so don't even bother to send him a gift.

Cat Deeley, the host of "So You Think You Can Dance?" turns 42 today. That's one show I'll never appear on. I already know. Allow me my delusions.

Retired quarterback Doug Flutie turns 56 today.
He's probably the person second most known for "Hail Mary" besides the Pope. If you don't believe me, ask Mary.
He threw one of the most famous "Hail Mary's" of all time... outside of St. Peter.
He's also known as being on the only NFL quarterback ever to sit on the bench in a booster seat.

Weird Al Yankovic hits birthday number 59 today... and it's probably hitting back.
Paul McCartney once refused Yankovic permission to record a parody of Wings' "Live and Let Die," titled "Chicken Pot Pie," because, according to Yankovic, McCartney is "a strict vegetarian and he didn't want a parody that condoned the consumption of animal flesh."
The guy has made fun of more songs than Simon Cowell in a bad mood.
He's had quite a career. And it all started with "My Bologna."

There was a time when the biggest soccer player known around the world had one name: Pele. Turns turns 78 today. Yes, he's hit another goal. He was sort of the Babe Ruth of soccer, except he was in shape. And, Babe Ruth didn't play soccer.
