Ed Asner – 1929
Eddie Asner is an American actor, voice actor, and was Screen Actors Guild’s former president. He is primarily known for portraying one character in two different genres, namely a comedy and drama. Would we have ever grown so fond of Lou Grant had Ed Asner not stepped into his shoes? For all those who had watched Lou Grant or The Mary Tyler Show know it for certain the magic spun by Asner.
Even the role of Santa Claus is worth a mention after the actor had portrayed his role with élan in the famous Christmas movie, Elf. Also, he became a part of Pixar’s Up, an Oscar-winning animated movie. But besides his actor self, the man was also an activist and the ex-President of the Screen Actors Guild. So what if his second marriage also saw a divorce in 2015? The 88-year-old is exemplary for his indomitable spirit. And retirement perhaps is not in his cards.
