    Default What Popular Actor Would You Like To See Stage A Comeback?

    what popular actor that is relatively still young(not over 50) and relatively attractive that was very popular in the 80's/90's get on the a-list again?

    My vote goes to Keanu Reeves

    I can't live with the man who starred in such movies as

    The Matrix franchise
    Point Break
    Speed
    Youngblood
    Dangerous Liasons
    Bill and Ted's franchise
    A Scanner Darkly

    have his last well known films be "the lake house" and "the day the earth stood still". he's starring in some upcoming kung-fu movies that are likely to be duds and then he could be gone for good.

    Speaking of Neo...if Keanu wants to make a sequel, why not one for the Matrix? The first one was EPIC. #2 was good too. #3 was okay. Not really happy with the way it ended. But the way it ended I feel like there is a lot more story to tell.

    agreed... the matrix could potentially be much more massive than it was... that's a huge world ripe for more story telling

    but it would also require the wachowskis to be on board.. and they seem too artsy to be involved with a long running franchise...

    plus Larry is too busy being a chick..

    Larry is a chick now huh? To each their own I guess.

    As for their new project "Cloud Atlas", I actually just saw the trailer last night. That movie looks really really weird. I was left with a WTF? kind of moment after watching the trailer.

    Add: Am I the only one who didn't think Speed Racer was that bad???

    I was going to say Mel, but he didn't fall into the OPs criteria, so I didn't... I need to start breaking some god damn rules!

    Mel Gibson will ALWAYS be one of the all-time favourites.

    Mel needs to do it differently than Arny and Sly (and even Bruce Willis. Although he looks awesome in the new G.I.Joe as Joe) are doing it though. Mel is better than they are.
    Arny (the Last Stand) and Sly (Bullet to the Head) are playing up the "I'm too Old for This" shtick.
    Liam Neeson beat them to the Punch (no pun intended) and is doing it 10X better than them.
    They're cartoons now.

    I'd rather Mel do it in a way that shows off his AMAZING and IMMENSE talent.
    And I think its going to be as a Director.

    I was just discussing it tonight with a few bud's, Apocolypto is on my Top % All-Time movies list. I freaking love that movie!

    I didn't see where he said under 50, so if I have to change my answer I might say Emilio Estevez? lol "Quack Quack Quack Mr. Duckworth!" He played a mean Billy The Kid in the Young Guns movies as well. Kinda lame I know, but I can't really think of any others at the moment.

    *edit: just googled him and it turns out he's 50. Damn I feel old...

    Once you get over like 55. Unless your like one of the all-time greats. You tend to not have lead roles written for you.

    Btw, I belive Corey Feldman's dead and Macally Caulkin looks it.

    Apocalypto was good, Braveheart was one of his best performances as an actor and best as director.

    I liked Apocalypto alot. But, He was supposed to play Martin Sheen's role in "The Departed", which I kind of wish he would have and put apocalypto on hold.

    Btw, As great as departed was I couldn't believe the guys who turned down roles, reluctantly or not. Ray Liotta had to turn down wahlberg's role, reluctantly. Dudes career is in the toilet. Mel Gibson, Brad Pitt as well as some other known names.

    Oh, heres another one to the list. Christian Slater

    Actresses would be
    Winona Rider

    He makes an appearance in the latest Stallone trailer for "Bullet to the Head". And it likes he gets one in the head from Stallone too.

    Tells you where HIS career is going .. shame. Him in "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" is one of my favourite performances.
    Love his hair in that movie too.

    could you imagine how popular this would have been in the mid 90's?
