Poll Suggestion: Favorite Actor... Who Could be Your Father

Just an idea that just popped up for Father's day, who's your favorite actor born the same year than your father?

I think it can be easily found on IMDb or you just have to write "19** in film" and check the "birth" section on Wikipedia.

I start: Bruce Willis.

Interesting, although I can't imagine how we could possibly make this a poll...

My father was born in 1948, the same year as such favorites of mine as John Carpenter (who is one of my favorite directors, but is also a capable character actor), Chris Mulkey, Jean Reno, Vincent Schiavelli, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Ginty and Gérard Depardieu.

Wow. Didn't realize how old some of these are. I guess *I'm* getting old too!

Speaking of 1926,  2017 was a sad year for celebrities born this year: Don Rickles, Jerry Lewis, Viola Harris, Richard Anderson, Harry Dean Stanton and Hugh Hefner.

ElM,
I am very lucky that both of my parents are both alive and well. I am abundantly aware that 2017 was a very sad year for actors born in 1926.

Wow. I'm jealous. Enjoy them while you still can. Ha...I sound like I'm talking to a parent about her kids growing up.

PS - I kind of scanned the initial post and then went down the answers. Somehow I misunderstood and thought we were saying what year *WE* were born in. When you said (I thought) you were born in 1926 I immediately jumped on email to express my stunned shock...good thing I realized the truth before you got that crazy message...!

I don't know, I can't decide between Bruce Willis, Kevin Costner and Willem Dafoe.

Dafoe is from the town I went to college in. Harry Houdini as well.

Dafoe's great line when he was on some late night snow - the greatest escape Houdini ever pulled was from Appleton, WI. :D

Elmo, 

Would you really want to look like Dafoe does when you reach his age, lol.

:D

ElMo,

Did you ever create a list for this poll suggestion? Father's Day is Sunday 21 June 2020 in the US.
