Today is Brent Spiner’s birthday. The actor who entertained us as Star Trek The Next Generation’s Data turns 61 years young today. So today we pay tribute to the man that played the android.
Happy Birthday, Brent Spiner
Certainly the break-out character from Star Trek The Next Generation, Brent Spiner’s Data took us fans along on his quest to understand what it means to be human.
TrekMovie wants to wish Brent the happiest of birthdays.
And to celebrate the auspicious event we lovingly share this tribute video to Data (made by GeneralGrin), set appropriately to Weird Al’s "White and Nerdy"…seems like the kind of thing Brent would think is funny (we hope).
Brent Tweets on his bday
Although his former captain has disavowed Twitter, Spiner continues to be one of the most popular celebrities on the micorblooging service (with 1.377 million followers). Here is what he had to say today about his birthday:
Just think…My birthday, a Syfy channel ST marathon and the Oscar nominations on the same day. I think there’s an omen in here somewhere
If you want to get in touch with Brent’s latest project, you should pick up his new ‘musical of the mind’ CD "Dreamland" (see TM review and Spiner interview). Here is a behind the scenes video of him recording it.
