Kevin Bacon turns 63: Celebrate the actor’s birthday with these free movies on Tubi
LOS ANGELES - Happy birthday Kevin Bacon.
The actor who danced into the hearts of millions turns 63 on July 8.
Bacon is known for his iconic role as the rebellious Ren McCormack in "Footloose," and has since become a staple in roles portraying raspy-voiced protagonists such as in the cult-favorite "Tremors" and could even master darker roles, terrifying audiences as the pedophile parolee Watler Rossworth in "The Woodsman."
Not only is Bacon a talented actor, but he’s also a part of a band he created with his brother, Michael Bacon, called the Bacon Brothers. The group creates folk-rock music and their latest album was released in 2020 titled, "The Way We Love."

When he’s not acting or creating music with his brother, Bacon is dedicating his time to his non-profit Six Degrees which helps donate and raise "money for local and grassroots charities in the United States," according to the organization’s website.
"Because at the end of the day, we’re all just six degrees from someone who really needs our help, and when we work together, we really can do a great deal of good," the website states.
