Helen Mirren to be honoured on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Dame Helen Mirren is the only English performer to be named in this year’s list of new Hollywood Walk of Fame inductees.
Other representatives of cinema among the twenty-four 2013 plaque recipients are actors James Franco, Javier Bardem and Viola Davis, as well as director Ron Howard and legendary makeup artist Rick Baker.
Luminaries from elsewhere in the entertainment world include chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, Glee star Jane Lynch and the omnitalented Bryan Cranston, best known for his work on Breaking Bad. Musician Usher, seminal alt-rock band Jane’s Addiction and culturally bereft boybands New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys will also be honoured, alongside illusionists Penn & Teller and Family Feud presenter Steve Harvey. Singers Luther Vandross and Janis Joplin will receive posthumous plaques.
