Happy Birthday Stephen Fry

Charming, erudite Stephen Fry is more than a mere Renaissance Man; he's a four-star culture warrior, a modern-day da Vinci, who might single-handedly bring about a much-needed Renaissance, just in time to save Western Civilization from itself...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketAn ├╝ber-avuncular actor, writer, and all around mensch, Fry's work employs comedy to take the piss out of the stuffy, fact to deflate mythology, and honesty to overcome stigma. About his criminal past, personal demons, and often precarious mental health he's always been forthright; he's pompous without being stuffy, smart without being condescending, and embodies complexity while remaining accessible.

Plus he matches the drapes, is friends with the Prince of Wales, and also happens to be gay! What's not to love?

Already a major star in Britain, thanks to the Internet, DVDs, BBC America on satellite TV, and the series Bones on Fox, Stephen Fry looks poised to become a household name around the world as well. About bloody time!
