HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANDY SERKIS!
Would you like to be Andy Serkis? Answering that question requires knowledge of who Andy Serkis is. Andy Serkis is the actor who has made modern motion capture technology the incredible tool for movie making it is today. He starred as Caesar in the recent Planet of the Apes movie reboots. Cool enough for you? No? Okay, he also starred as Gollum in the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies. Still not enough? How about having a role this summer in Avengers: Age of Ultron? Still no? All right, most germane to our Countdown: He is starring in The Force Awakens.
Yes, you read all that right. Planet of the Apes. The Lord of the Rings. Avengers: Age of Ultron. And Star Wars.
Andy Serkis has to be some kind of geek god, doesn’t he?
Happy 51st Birthday, Mr. Serkis!
