Roaming through the birthdays on IMDB (as I usually do in the mornings) I came across Dirk Benedict, who is 72 today.
Here's wishing TOS Starbuck all the best.

I know he gets a lot of flack for his sexist comments and other controversial remarks he's made, but all I know of him is the man I met in 2010, and that man was a gentleman who was "humbled" by the appreciation of the fans who were waiting to see him. I saw a man who was very generous with his time, who was kind to kids, women and middle-aged geeks like myself. He was also a bit of a joker; signing a humorously sly autograph for myself and for a then-friend of mine. He is also a fellow cancer survivor, and I respect what he went through (I'm sure he's saddened that his costar Richard Hatch lost his own struggle only last month). He was also touched when I told him how much I wished I could see his theatrical version of "Columbo" (a show I used to like as a kid), so he actually did a bit of his stage version of the character right in front of me (that's what he's doing in the above pic, by the way...)! That's the Dirk Benedict I remember.

Wishing him all the best.

I always like Dirk Benedict, he was always fun in the shows that I saw him in. I remember him doing Columbo, I saw a couple of you tube videos, he was dead on Peter Falk.
