Happy Birthday, David

Illya Kuryakin
Born today in 1933 - David McCallum (my first tv crush, as Illya Kuryakin of course!) It's good to see he's still working.

I always liked David McCallum. It's hard to see him as an old man, but then it's hard to see myself as an old man, too. Of course he's waaa-aa-aay older than me. And it is great that he's still working. And it's great that the original David McCallum is still there, behind that mask of old age.

Getting older is vastly preferable to the alternative. And goodness knows McCallum can still deliver even the simplest line with such eloquence.

I heard Terry Gross interview him on "Fresh Air" some years ago (probably when "NCIS" was new), and seem to recall that his father was a violinist and symphony conductor, so David grew up around classical music, for whatever that's worth -- quite a lot, IMHO.
