Let's all gather together to wish actor Blair Underwood a happy birthday! He turns 51 today.

Fans will know him from his role of Dr. Andrew Garner on Marvel's [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.](tag:722469), Agent Melinda May's former ex-husband and current love interest, newly rejoined S.H.I.E.L.D. team member, and champion to the Inhumans.

The veteran actor has enjoyed a great career in television, working steadily since he broke onto the scene in the 80s. He's known for playing cops and doctors, with his most well-known role being that of Jonathan Rollins in the long-running L.A. Law. Other notable TV roles include Fatherhood, Sex and the City, Dirty Sexy Money, The New Adventures of Old Christine, and The Event, as well as narrating Secret Millionaire. Movie roles include sci-fi classic Gattaca, Deep Impact, Malibu's Most Wanted, and Rules of Engagement.

With his role continuing to expand on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and two movies in the pipeline, it looks like it's going to be a very good year for Blair Underwood. Happy birthday!
