Happy 60th birthday, Sam Neill!

Posted on


Neil_lSam Neill has been our favorite Kiwi leading man for so long (sorry, Russell) that we suppose we should be less surprised than we are at the arrival of his 60th (!) birthday. At least he’s not slowing down; coming off his fine turn earlier this year in The Tudors (pictured, with Neill, left, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers), he has several more movies in the works. He certainly deserves a birthday haiku:

Your Brilliant Career
Wisest move yet: sitting out

Jurassic Park IV.
