Happy 49th birthday to Adam Shankman!

Television audiences know this birthday boy from So You Can Think You Can Dance but he’s also a big-time movie director whose credits include Hairspray and last year’s Rock of Ages.

Happy 49th birthday to director-producer-choreographer Adam Shankman!

Adam directed a cast in Rock of Ages that included Tom Cruise, Bryan Cranston, Catherine Zeta-Jones and, wait for it, Alec Baldwin whose character turns out to be gay!

Alan does not direct musicals. His other feature films include The Wedding Planner, A Walk to Remember, Bringing Down the House, Cheaper By the Dozen 2 and The Pacifier.

He;s also directed three episodes of Glee.

The openly-gay Shankman told me last year that there is plenty of gay representation in his movies if you look close enough.

‘My first movie was The Wedding Planner and as far as I’m concerned, there is no gayer movie. Sets are pink!’ he says. ‘But in terms of gay-themed things, I’m my best representation.’

He adds: ‘The more I can get out and tell interesting stories that have gay characters in them, I’m happy.’
