October

Johnlithgow John Lithgow is 61 today. And though you may think he's too old to have contributed any major part to the 80s, consider some of his signature roles: Roberta Muldoon (The World According to Garp), Rev. Shaw Moore (Footloose), Dr. Emilio Lizardo (The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai). The list goes on.
