Happy Birthday, Josh Duhamel!

posted by Nell Minow

I’m a big fan of North Dakota native Josh Duhamel, a gifted actor who always creates a real character even when the script does not give him much to work with.  Celebrate his birthday today with a look at Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, where he plays a superficial movie star who dimly but genuinely comes to appreciate the innocent goodness of his biggest fan.  Or try Ramona and Beezus, where he joins his “Tad Hamilton” co-star Ginnifer Goodwin as the neighbor who re-kindles a romance with the girls’ aunt.  Or the first Transformers, where he plays a dashing military hero.  If you find yourself in Minot, ND, you can visit his restaurant, 10 North Main.  Here’s wishing Josh a wonderful day and year — and “Happy Birthday,” sung by his wife!
