He was born Michael Diamond in New York City but most of the world knows him as Mike D of the Beastie Boys. Mike was in a punk rock band called the Young Aborigines with Adam Yauch before founding the Beasties in 1981. The Boys became one of the best-selling rap groups of all time and were inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. Mike is married to film and music video director Tamra Davis and they have two boys, Skyler and Davis. Today is also the birthday of actress Sean Young. Her more notable film roles include Lola Cain in Fatal Instinct, Chani in Dune and Lt. Lois Einhorn in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Young wanted the role of Catwoman in Batman Returns so badly that she constructed a homemade Catwoman costume and confronted Tim Burton and Michael Keaton during production. But Michelle Pfeiffer got the part after Annette Bening became pregnant.
