Shit. I've just blah-ed while watching Cocoon. Stupid old people and their emotion provoking acting. And James Horner, too. What right do composers have playing with our feelings by penning haunting film scores?
Of course, there was an upside. Steve Guttenberg as Jack Bonner. Topless.
Never did I think I'd hear myselves saying that. Well, not in this millenium, anyway. However, it did get me thinking: 23 years ago, Steve Guttenberg was a star. And a pretty hot one at that! So then, I thought about other fading actors who, in their day, were just the ticket. In fact, some still are.
Tom Skerritt as Dallas in Alien.
Fred Ward as Earl in Tremors.
Harrison Ford as both Rick Deckard and Han Solo in Blade Runner and Star Wars, respectively.
Dennis Quaid as Michael Brody and Tuck Pendleton in Jaws 3-D and Innerspace, respectively. That smile... Those abs!
Casey Biggs as Damar in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Yes, even in the Cardassian make-up. Especially in the Cardassian make-up!
Phew! I'm going to have to go for a gin and a lie down...
Feel free to leave your own nominations for last millenium's hot bods and starlets while I'm recuperating.
