Stephen King, Jerry Bruckheimer, Bill Murray And Ethan Coen – A Day For Talent

Maybe it’s prophecy or just coincidence – but Stephen King (74) Jerry Bruckheimer (78), Bill Murray (71) and Ethan Coen (64) were all born on the same date (21 September). That’s an impressive group of talent to share a birthday.

These men have different, but equally impressive talents. King is a hugely successful (and monumentally) prolific writer, Bruckheimer is Hollywood’s biggest producer and Murray is a wonderful eccentric actor who can straddle comedy and drama, while Coen is a quirky and much-loved writer/director.

King’s greatest novels: The Shining, The Stand, It and Salem’s Lot.

Bruckheimer’s greatest productions: Top Gun, The Rock, Enemy Of The State and Beverly Hills Cop.

Murray’s greatest performances: Groundhog Day, Rushmore, Lost In Translation and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.

Coen’s greatest films: No Country For Old Men, Raising Arizona, O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Fargo.

These guys are still going strong, bringing their A-game and knocking it out of the park. They aren’t spring chickens anymore, but they all illustrate that age isn’t a factor when it comes to good talent. Let’s hope they all keep going for many more years.
