Sam 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.
