It’s Her Big Fat Birthday
In 2002, Nia Vardalos became one of Hollywood’s biggest overnight successes in its illustrious history. She wrote and starred in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The movie was produced for only $6 million and has since grossed over $368 million – making it the highest grossing romantic comedy of all time. She reprised her role of Toula Portokalos in the TV series My Big Fat Greek Life in 2003, but CBS cancelled the show after only 7 episodes. Today is also Hercules’ birthday. Kevin Sorbo portrayed the son of Zeus in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. His other well-known role was Dylan Hunt in Andromeda. Sorbo was a contender for the role of Agent Mulder in The X Files which went to David Duchovny. Both Vardalos and Sorbo are in their 50s. Who’s older?
