Birthday Boy: David Tennant

A little late in the day, but just wanted to wish David Tennant a happy 40th birthday. He's done quite a few roles from Barty Crouch in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to Hamlet. Of course his greatest role is probably his most popular and that is playing the Tenth Doctor in Doctor Who. He left the role very early last year and was replaced by Matt Smith. The second season of Smith's Doctor starts up again this weekend.

Tennant for his part kept himself busy post-Doctor Who. He did a pilot for an NBC show that was unfortunately not picked up and played the lead in the British mini-series Single Father. Speaking of, he did become a first-time father only a few weeks ago when he and girlfriend Georgia Moffett welcome to the world a beautiful girl they named Olive.

Next up for him will be a West End stint with former Doctor Who castmate Catherine Tate in Much Ado About Nothing. He is also rumored to be involved in The Hobbit.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
