I have it easy as there is a great bunch to pick from.
On July 13 my DOB, I like Cheech Marin, Patrick Stewart and Harrison Ford the best. Too bad about Robert Crane however.

Easy choice for me. Robert Frost.

YARNLADY's avatar

Franklin D Roosevelt has his next to last birthday on the day I was born.

Kraken's avatar

@Bluefreedom I think you chose wisely from that list.

Kraken's avatar

@elijahsuicide Yeah, now you have to deal with that laugh of his.

Kraken's avatar

@DrasticDreamer Do you travel the road less taken?

DrasticDreamer's avatar

@Kraken You have no idea. :)

Kraken's avatar

@Yarnlady That explains how you got to be the queen of Yarnia! I knew there was something special about you.

Kraken's avatar

@DrasticDreamer I hear that fences make great neighbors too.

MacBean's avatar

Rex Harrison, Mike Resnick, Penn Jillette, and Matt Lucas are my favorite people who I share a birthday with.

Also, Franz Mesmer, John Adams (the mutineer, not the president), Joseph Stalin, Patsy Cline, and John Belushi all died on my birthday.

Kraken's avatar

@MacBean Oh no, not Penn Jillette. What’s the deal with that Teller twerp he sashay’s around with anyway.

@forestGeek Watch out for them funky cold Medinas.

Kraken's avatar

@MacBean Way to go in the other direction! Well let’s look on the bright side of life, shall we.

Kraken's avatar

@discover You’re only 4 days away from me. Give my regards to Wilson.

Kraken's avatar

@Trustinglife Don’t forget about the Fridge and all the mini-Ditkas out there.
Da Bearzzz!

Kraken's avatar

@dearest_prudence Cool, now I just wish I could put a face to the name.

dearest_prudence's avatar

you don’t know who dakota fanning is?

Kraken's avatar

@dearest_prudence Sadly I don’t I’ve just heard the name before. Actor I suppose.

YARNLADY's avatar

I just checked out the list you provided and I see a favorite Comedian of mine also shared a birthday, Dick Martin.

Kraken's avatar

@Yarnlady Dick Martin? He must have been before my time. I never heard of him. I don’t think they are calling men Dick any more.

MacBean's avatar

You’ve never heard of Dick Martin? Seriously? Rowan & Martin’s Laugh In, Match Game…? He only just died last year, and it was all over the news.

YARNLADY's avatar

Nope, I suspect the name will die out with Dick Clark, Dick Cavett, Dick Cheney, Dick Smothers and Dick Van Dyke

My faves:

Willie Nelson

Phil Garner (Former manager of Milwaukee Brewers)

Al Lewis (Grandpa on the Munsters)

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

Favorites who died on my birthday:

Muddy Waters

Edourad Manet

Infamous who died on my birthday:

Eva Braun

Adolph Hitler

Kraken's avatar

@dearest_prudence Is she the little girl or the hot woman?

Kraken's avatar

@Sueanne_Tremendous Manet needed corrective lenses, that’s why hi art was so blurry. Muddy Waters was a great talent.

Kraken's avatar

@MacBean No bells are ringing. I guess he’s just before my time.

MacBean's avatar

@Kraken That’s okay. Really, he was before my time, too. No wonder people always think I’m older than I actually am…

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

@Kraken : I believe you are thinking of Monet, not Manet. Monet had cataracts and the surgery left him with skewed color ranges. I am not aware of Manet’s trouble with sight.

Kraken's avatar

@Sueanne_Tremendous Yeah my bad. Can you blame me for such a minor error, it’s 7AM and I’ve been up all night, playing my myriad online RPG games and getting into excellent discussions here at Fluther. Pat can I buy a vowel, LOL. Vanna’s not as fast as she used to be. I’m sorry.

Kraken's avatar

@MacBean Perhaps your mind is older than your body. It reminds me of a lyric in ‘The Setting Sun’ by The Chemical Brothers.
You don’t have to listen if you don’t want to.

Kraken's avatar

@dearest_prudence Oh, that girl is full of beans alright! You can see where my mind is at :)

janbb's avatar

Martin Luther King. They even declared my brithday a holiday, I’m so special!

galileogirl's avatar

Julius Caesar & Bill Cosby. I share the need to control balanced with a sense of humor with them.

I not only was born on the same date as Van Cliburn, we were born 12 years apart (Chinese calendar is a 12 year cycle) we were delivered in the same hospital by the same Dr. To save you a trip to Google he was a child prodigy and concert pianist.

Kraken's avatar

@galileogir Oh snap! you pulled the Caesar card, now we’re in trouble. I guess you win because Bill Cosby is way cool too.

September 21st, Sophia Loren. I’ve actually been told I bear a striking resemblance to her.

Ok, that’s not true I haven’t ever been told that.

galileogirl's avatar

SuperMouse You bear a striking resemblance to Sophia Loren. Now you can say it with a straight face.

OJ Simpson, Courtney Love

Darwin's avatar

France (July 14th, aka Bastille Day).

But I like Woody Guthrie and Terry-Thomas better.

Jack79's avatar

the only one I know is footballer Rivaldo, who was born 4 days after me. I have a friend who was born in the same hospital just a few hours before I did.

I don’t know anyone born on 13/4 like me, not even a different year.

My daughter was born on the same day as Bri’s. Does this count?

@intro24 In Soviet Russia, birthday shares you?

Kraken's avatar

@dverhey that is really cool. Thank you so much for your excellent answer.

Kraken's avatar

@Jack79 WoW, I think you are the first person I saw here that can contend with Patrick Stewart, Cheech Marin & Harrison Ford. You have a very powerful bunch of people there.

TitsMcGhee's avatar

Groucho Marx, Bud Abbott, Don McLean, Donna Karan, Sting, Gandhi, Grahame Greene, and, my favorite, ANNIE LEIBOVITZ.

AstroChuck's avatar

@TitsMcGhee- You pick Annie Leibovitz over Mahatma Gandhi?

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

From the list here , Oscar Goldman, William Bateson (noted biologist), Donald P. Bellasario, Keith Carradine, Dino De Lorentiis, Paul Dirac (physicist), The Edge, Matthew Hensen (explorer), Dustin Hoffman, Ernest Lawrence (inventor of the cyclotron), Donny Most (Ralph Malph on Happy Days), Esther Williams, Connie Stevens (singer), Roger Penrose (cosmologist and theoretical physicist) and Emilio Zapata (Mexican patriot and revolutionary). Pretty impressive list.*

*Of course, I left out all the criminals, politicians, and other undesirables under my birthdate. Funny thing, I always thought I shared a birthday with Andy Warhol, but it seems he was born on the 6th. Dammit.

My favorites are the scientists and Dustin Hoffman. Looks like I have some birthday cards to send out in a few months. :-)

Kraken's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra Pretty good company that you are amidst.
