How Birthday Girl, Sandra Bullock, Offered Movie Role To Harry Connick Jr.

Multi-talented actress Sandra Bullock is a birthday girl and turns 47 today.

I’ve always liked Sandra and for some reason have never forgotten a story Harry Connick Jr. shared during  one of his concerts that I attended at DeVos Place a few summer’s back.

First and foremost, HCJ is in my top ten BEST concerts of all time so, if you get the op to go sometime — run as fast as you can to claim your seat at the venue.  He’s that entertaining.  Second, if you’re an artist first, you most likely don’t have acting chops.  However, HCJ really wanted a part in the 1998 film, Hope Floats, opposite Bullock and he got it — after much peskiness and persuasion.

What has stuck in my mind all these years is HOW Sandra let him know that he got the part.  Although it’s a little risque, I think you’re gonna love it!  Click here to read HCJ‘s account of that fateful day.
