People born on September 20
Gunnar and Matthew Nelson (1967): Identical twins who skyrocketed to number one on the pop charts with the single, "After the Rain," in 1990. Matthew and Gunnar grew up surrounded by music because they are the sons of the late rock star, Ricky Nelson. Their 1990 debut album, "Love and Affection," spawned four number 1 MTV videos and a platinum selling home video. In 1995, the Nelson twins decided to leave their catchy pop tunes behind to pursue a career in Nashville. The twins' latest album "Like Father, Like Sons," a tribute to the music of their father, was released in 2000.

Kristen Johnston (1965): Actress who is most famed for playing Sally Solomon on the hit sitcom "3rd Rock From the Sun." Johnston studied drama at New York University, and joined the Atlantic Theatre Company after graduation. While associated with the company, Johnston starred in productions of "As You Like It," "Stage Door," "Portrait of a Woman" and "Boy’s Life." Johnston has also performed with the famous Naked Angels Theatre Company in "The Stand In" and "Hot Keys." After giving a critically acclaimed performance in "The Lights" at New York’s Lincoln Center, Johnston caught the attention of "3rd Rock" casting directors, and landed the role of Sally. In addition to starring on a successful sitcom, Johnston has appeared on the silver screen in The Debt (1993) and The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas (2000).

Crispin Glover (1964): Actor who rose to prominence after starring as the nerdy father, George McFly, in Back to the Future (1985). Glover’s first professional leading role was in a Los Angeles production of "The Sound of Music." Segueing from the stage to the small screen, Glover began making guest appearances on popular shows like "Happy Days," "Hill Street Blues" and "Family Ties." In 1981, Glover enjoyed his first role on the silver screen in Private Lessons, but Back to the Future was his greatest cinematic success. Some of Glover’s other feature credits include River’s Edge (1987), Twister (1988), Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1994), The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996), Nurse Betty (2000), Charlie's Angels (2000) and Charlie's Angels, Full Throttle in 2003.

Anne Meara (1929): Actress and comedienne who gained notoriety for her comedy act with husband, Jerry Stiller. Since Stiller and Meara could not get cast in the same films, due to their height difference, they decided to become a comedy team. The pair appeared on "The Ed Sullivan Show" 34 times, and made the rounds on the comedy circuit throughout the ‘50s and ‘60s. But in the ‘70s, Meara decided to take on solo projects. In 1970, Meara made her Broadway debut in "The House of Blue Leaves," and began to star on the silver screen in films including The Out-Of-Towners (1970), Nasty Habits (1976), Fame (1980), Awakenings (1990) and Reality Bites (1994), which was directed by her son, Ben Stiller.

Dr. Joyce Brothers (1928): Psychologist who has been dubbed by Modern Maturity as ‘America’s best-known psychologist.’ Brothers first caught the public's eye in the 1957 with her unstumpable appearance on tv quiz show "$64,000 Question." Since then, people across the country have been looking to Brothers for advice on life and love, and her daily column is published in over 250 newspapers. Brothers is a regular columnist for Good Housekeeping magazine, and she hosts an NBC talk radio show. Listeners appreciate Brothers’ smart, savvy advice, and a United Press International Poll named her one of the 10 most influential American women.
