Mike Nichols

Age: 80
Occupation: Director, writer, producer

One of only a handful of people who have won the Grand Slam of show business — Academy, Emmy, Grammy and Tony awards — Nichols is at the helm of this year's Death of a Salesman revival. The most anticipated show on Broadway, Nichols' version of the classic play first staged on the Great White Way in 1949 stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as the tragic traveling salesman Willy Loman. Yes, critics are already talking Tonys.
