The 80s provided us with many of our favorite movies. It's hard to keep track of all the movies that you used to love watching, but when you do look back, it's hard not to wonder where the actors went. Sure, a lot of them have gone on to have huge careers, but there are many who just stepped back out of the spotlight, never quite reaching the same status.
It seems like almost everyone gets a second chance in Hollywood, so let's revisit our favorite 80s stars and think about who we would want to come back.
1. Lori Singer
After dancing her way into our hearts in Footloose, we all expected her to become a huge star. Singer still acts from time to time, but if you try to think of the last thing you've seen her in, I bet it would take you a long time to figure it out.
2. Mia Sara
She helped Ferris have the best day off imaginable, but where did she go after that? The actress has mostly retired from acting at this point, but she should absolutely make a comeback.
3. Pheobe Cates
Fast Times At Ridgemont High and Gremlins were both huge hits, but after having a child she retired from acting. She has only come out of retirement for one movie called The Anniversary Party, and we think she should come back again.
4. Alan Ruck
He's had several guest spots on television, but his career didn't seem to have the same trajectory as his costar Matthew Broderick. He was amazing as Cameron Frye, and absolutely needs to come back in something soon.
5. Emilio Estevez
Emilio Estevez all but vanished from Hollywood, but he's not giving up. He actually has a movie in production right now, so let's hope that this will be his big moment back in the sun.
6. Jeff Cohen
He's successfully distanced himself from the "truffle shuffle" and has actually become a lawyer, but honestly, we still think it would be pretty awesome if he came back.
7. Andrew McCarthy
He was in so many of our favorite 80s movie, most importantly Mannequin, but what is he doing now? He's occasionally appeared on TV in guest spots, but now he works as an editor for National Geographic Traveler magazine. But let's be real, if someone can make a believable love story between a guy and his magical mannequin, then they deserve another shot!
