People born on October 9
Zachery Ty Bryan (1981): Actor who starred as Tim Allen’s eldest son on the long-running sitcom “Home Improvement.” In addition to his acting talents, Bryan has a passion for soccer. In 1998, he and his team, the Claremont Stars, were ranked second in the nation. When Bryan wasn’t working on the “Home Improvement” set or perfecting his soccer game, he was appearing on the silver screen in First Kid (1996), True Heart (1999), The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999), Longshot (2000) and Slammed in 2001.

Steve Burns (1973): Actor who delighted children following his hip dog "Blue" through adventure after adventure on Nickelodeon's "Blue's Clues." Burns cites Grover (of “Sesame Street” fame) as one of his earliest influences, and his favorite books growing up were The Monster at the End of This Book and Where the Sidewalk Ends. Burns studied theatre in college and landed guest spots on “Law and Order” and “Homicide: Life on the Street,” before entertaining children everywhere on “Blue’s Clues.”

Scott Bakula (1954): Actor who rose to fame playing the time-traveling star of the sci-fi series “Quantum Leap” (1989-93). Bakula began acting in theatre while he was in high school, and realized his dream of starring on Broadway when he landed a role in “Marilyn: An American Fable” (1983). In 1988, Bakula earned a Tony nomination for his performance in “Romance, Romance” (1988). Bakula appeared in a few guest spots on popular shows like “Designing Women” and “Matlock” in the ‘80s, but did not make a name for himself until he won the role of Sam Beckett on “Quantum Leap.” The series helped Bakula make the leap to the silver screen, and he has since appeared in films including Sibling Rivalry (1990), Necessary Roughness (1991), Color of Night (1994), Lord of Illusions (1995), In the Name of the People (2000) and Role of a Lifetime in 2001.

Jackson Browne (1948): Musician who has been hailed as one of the West Coast’s most influential songwriters. Browne began playing guitar in the “Nitty Gritty Dirt Band” when he was a teenager. By the late ‘60s, he was making his mark on the music scene by establishing himself as a songwriter. Such artists as Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt and the Byrds recorded Browne’s music, and his self-titled debut album produced the Top 10 single, “Doctor My Eyes,” in 1972. Browne’s following grew with each successive album, and his 1980 release, “Hold Out,” reached the coveted number one spot on the charts. Since then, Browne has released “Lives in the Balance” (1986), “World in Motion” (1989), “I’m Alive” (1993) and "The Naked Ride Home" in 2003.

John Lennon (1940): Musician who became a superstar in the ‘60s as part of the pop phenomenon “The Beatles.” Lennon and Paul McCartney formed the band “The Quarrymen” in the late 1950s, and by 1961, Lennon, McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison were known as “The Beatles.” Releasing their first album in 1963, the Beatles’ singles, “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “Love Me Do,” quickly rose to the top of the charts. The writing team of Lennon and McCartney was paved with platinum hit after hit, while “Beatlemania” took over the world. In 1964, the band released their first film, Hard Days Night, and the album “Beatles For Sale,” which contained the hit “Can’t Buy Me Love.” Lennon enjoyed a successful solo career, and his album “Imagine” went to number one in 1971. Although Lennon passed away in 1980, his musical legacy will live forever.
