Hold on to your panties because I have some shocking news. The man formerly known as Dylan McKay turns 47 (or 48!) today. FYI-this uncertainty is not for lack of research. Wikipedia says Perry was born in 1966 but IMDB says 1965! What a mystery!
What is not a mystery, however, is that Luke is still a total fox. Sure, he looks like he’s had a few too many cigs and bottles of whiskey, but home boy has character. I’d hit it.
Perry most recently has appeared on the TV shows Community and the cancelled Body of Proof, but of course he will always be remembered as rich rebel Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210. I also loved him as Rev. Jeremiah Cloutier in the terrifying HBO prison drama Oz, where every week someone got shanked and/or raped. Good times!
It looks like wine and Luke Perry have something in common besides both making me drunk with happiness.
They also get better with age. Zing! Bet you didn’t see that punchline coming.
So happy birthday Mr. Perry and yes, I am single and willing, if you want to celebrate with me.
