Thora Birch turns 24 today. She was great in American Beauty, but perfect as the movie version of Enid in Ghost World.

Don't worry, be happy: musician Bobby McFerrin celebrates his 56th. And a handful of hyphenate birthdays: Oscar-nominee Terrence Howard is 37, Jackass-actor Johnny Knoxville is 35 and actor-director Peter Berg is 42. And Long-Island-lover-turned-porn-dude Joey Buttafuoco is 50 today.

Supreme Court watchers may be interested to know that Antonin Scalia turns 70 today. That makes him about 4 years shy of the average American male's life expectancy. Which media magnante Rupert Murdoch has exceeded, since today is his 75th — he's past the Australian average, too.
