TV Junkie: Fox/Sorkin/Bueller Celebrate B-Days; THR Emmy Roundtable Vid

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Today is one of those days that remind us of how ancient we are. Aaron Sorkin turns 50 today, Michael J. Fox turns 50 today, and 25 years ago today, Ferris Bueller's Day Off premiered. If you want more of Fox than the micro-clip above, the Archive of American Television has a 2 hour interview with him posted. Happy Birthday Aaron, Michael, and Ferris.

The Hollywood Reporter has another Emmy roundtable video up, this time it's 6 "dramatic" actors: William H. Macy, Tom Selleck, Timothy Olyphant, Steve Buscemi, Michael C. Hall, and Andre Braugher. As we rarely agree with what THR edits the video down to, we suggest you go to the full video gallery to get to the complete footage.

TV is seriously lacking tonight until you get to late night. Sorry, but that's the way it is in this weird in-between season. So why don't we plug our Twitter handle so you can keep up on the latest with us? @TheTVJunkie
