Following roles on The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries and Baywatch, he most recently appeared on the Netflix teen drama Greenhouse Academy as the founder of the titular school for gifted future leaders.

June 6: Harvey Fierstein, 70
Known for his distinctively gravelly voice, Broadway legend Harvey Fierstein is a Tony Awards magnet, having picked up wins for writing and starring in Torch Song Trilogy, writing the book to La Cage aux Folles and dressing in drag as the lovable Hairspray matriarch Edna Turnblad. This year he returned to the Great White Way with a revised script for the first revival of Funny Girl, and he released a joyful and poignant new memoir, I Was Better Last Night, in which he discusses everything from his love of quilting to his days as an early gay rights activist.
