A budding tradition in the entertainment blogosphere is celebrating the birthday of actor Charles Lane. He's 102 today.
Brent McKee has a good piece on Hollywood's "oldest living actor."
There have been some discussions on message boards dealing with the question of whether Mr. Lane ever played a nice guy. In his twenties, he was already playing crusty, testy people like Max Jacobs (originally Max Mandelbaum) in Howard Hawks' Twentieth Century.
Have you ever seen Charles Lane playing a good guy? It must have happened somewhere.
