People born on September 21
Alfonso Ribeiro (1971): Actor who is most famous for starring as the stuffy Carlton Banks on the hit sitcom, "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." A prolific dancer, Ribeiro made his Broadway debut in the 1984 musical "Tap Dance Kid." While on Broadway, Ribeiro caught the attention of "The King of Pop," Michael Jackson, and was asked to appear in a Pepsi commercial with him. From there, Ribeiro landed a supporting role on the sitcom "Silver Spoons" (1984-87), and in 1990 was cast as Will Smith’s cousin on "Fresh Prince." In addition to his sitcom work, Ribeiro has starred in the movies "Ticks" (1994) and "Kidz in the Wood" (1996). Recently, Ribero was the host of "Your Big Break."

Ricki Lake (1968): Lake, a talented actress and talk show host, made her big screen debut as the unstoppable Tracy Turnblad in John Waters’ Hairspray in 1988. Before the syndicated debut of "The Ricki Lake Show" in 1993, Lake appeared in the films Babycakes (1989), Cry Baby (1990) and Where the Day Takes You (1992), while staring on the series "China Beach." Lake’s talk show earned her both the praise of the critics and a loyal fan following because of such featured topics as "My First Time," "Ricki Makes My Dreams Come True" and "If You’re Cheating, There’s the Door."

Faith Hill (1967): Singer who has sold over 11 million records and recorded eight No. 1 singles in the past six years. A country artist who crossed over to the pop charts to enjoy mainstream success, Hill stepped into the spotlight when her debut album, "Take Me As I Am," spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard Album charts. That year, Hill garnered the Academy of Country Music’s Favorite New Female Award and Billboard Magazine’s Top Female Country Artist Award. Hill has since released "It Matters To Me" (1995), "Faith" (1998), "Breathe" (1999) and "Cry" in 2002.

Bill Murray (1950): Actor who rose to fame as a writer and performer for the smash show "Saturday Night Live." During the third season of "SNL," Murray was brought in to replace Chevy Chase, and he soon won an Emmy for his writing talents. In the ‘80s, Murray began to make a name for himself in Hollywood appearing in the feature films Caddyshack (1980), Ghostbusters (1984), Little Shop of Horrors (1986) and Scrooged in 1988. One of the most successful "SNL" alumni, Murray has continued to star in hit films including Ed Wood (1994), Kingpin (1996), Rushmore (1998), Cradle Will Rock (1999), Hamlet (2000) and Osmosis Jones in 2001. More recently, Murray starred in the Academy Award nominated film Lost in Translation (2003) and lent his voice to the role of Garfield in 2004's Garfield.

Larry Hagman (1931): Actor who enjoyed phenomenal success on not one, but two series – "I Dream of Jeannie" and "Dallas." Hagman began his career in theatre, starring in a production of "South Pacific" with his mother, Mary Martin. After joining the Air Force and directing two USO shows, Hagman made the move to Hollywood, and landed roles on the big screen in Ensign Pulver (1964) and Fail Safe (1964). From 1965-70, Hagman starred opposite Barbara Eden on the classic sitcom, "I Dream of Jeannie." Still, his most memorable small screen role came eight years later, when he became the manipulative oilman, J.R. Ewing. Since "Dallas" ended in 1991, Hagman has appeared in reunion specials and the television movie, "The Third Twin" (1997).
