Robert Duvall

Movie icon Robert Duvall will celebrate his 80th birthday in style on Wednesday (05Jan10) by stamping his mark on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Godfather star will place his hands and feet in cement outside the historic Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, where famous pals like James Caan and Andy Garcia are expected to honour him.

The honour caps a six week period of accolades for the veteran, who is among the favourites to land a Best Actor Oscar nomination later this month (Jan11) for his role as a grumpy hermit in Get Low.

Duvall will also be handed the prestigious Career Achievement Award at the upcoming Palm Springs Film Festival in California.

He also received acareer tribute at the Gotham Independent Film Awards at the end of November (10).

Wednesday's Walk of Fame honour will also serve as a double celebration for Duvall's fourth wife Luciana Pedraza - she celebrates her 39th birthday on the same day.
