60 Amazing People Turning 60 in 2016

As a lead-up to my birthday last week, I did a list of 60 people turning 60 on Facebook. Just to keep that list in one place, I decided to add it here, too. Keep in mind that this is in no way a complete list of the fantastic or famous or infamous people who turned 60 this year.

  1. What a great list of amazing people! I was going to respond by citing my special favorite names, and then realized as I kept reading that I would be naming at least half of them!

    But what the heck, as they sing in River City, here are my top of the top (along with Julie of course), surnames only: Staunton, Lane, Daly, Cranston, O'Hara, Benben, Barclay, Ruck, Hanks, Harris, Kushner, Allen, Lenox, Cole, Morgan, Zimbalist, Spinella, Fisher, Wilson, Stevenson, Jones, Battle, Sedaris. Hurray for everybody!
