Born Today in 1940: John Hurt

A really versatile and active actor in every sense of the word.  Whether he's playing the unforgettable first victim in Alien (1979) or hardly recognizable as The Elephant Man (1980) his talents are certainly instantly identifiable.  I just recently discovered his chilling performance as Caligula in the I, Claudius miniseries (1976), and I really enjoyed his voice acting as Hazel the rabbit in Watership Down (1978).
