Welcome to the Babble Entertainment Advent Calendar! Every week day between now and Christmas, we will treat you with fun facts and information about this day in entertainment history.
Come on down and blow out your candles! Bob Barker, celebrated game show host and champion of the pet population, is turning 90 years old today. Bob has been guesting on episodes of The Price is Right this week, and today he will be on the show to present a showcase. The Hollywood Reporter just revealed exclusive images of today’s show and it looks like the production team had a lot of fun turning Drew Carey’s set into an homage to what it looked like when Bob originally hosted. Bob was the host of The Price is Right from 1972-2007.
Bill Nighy is just one of the many stars of the controversial holiday film, Love, Actually. Today the English actor turns 64. While Bill had enjoyed a successful acting career in the UK for years before the release of Love, Actually in 2003, it was his performance as the brutally honest has-been rocker Billy Mack that brought him wider acclaim.
Yesterday E! shared a hilarious parody trailer that imagines a sequel to Love, Actually. It’s pretty funny stuff, but it is not meant for young ears, so make sure you have head phones plugged in before you watch: Love, Actually 2.
Mayim Bialik, who turns 38 today, received an early birthday gift from SAG. Yesterday the actress was nominated for outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series by her fellow actors in SAG. Mayim has revealed that she will be a guest judge next year on season two of the TBS reality series, King of the Nerds.
