C. Thomas Howell was a teen idol who appeared in hits like The Outsiders, ET: The Extra Terrestrial, and Grandview U.S.A. Howell still works today, but his success was short-lived.

 

Gotta love the hairstyle of the woman on the right...as well as the Michael Jackson-type gloves she's wearing.

That's for sure. He managed to snatch C. Thomas Howell and Patrick Swayze for Grandview, U.S.A., John Travolta and Jeff Conaway for Grease, and Christopher Atkins for The Blue Lagoon.

Christopher Atkins was another one whose success was short-lived. (And he was also lucky enough to work with a young Brooke Shields.)

Jason looks absolutely stunning in these pictures. I've been wanting to see Love and Death on Long Island because Jason is in it. Calendar Girl also featured Jerry O'Connell, who was at that point in his career best known as one of River Phoenix's friends in Stand By Me.

You are in for one hell of a time with "Love and Death on Love Island".

I won't reveal the details.

I might spoil it for you.

A sweet romantic comedy

 

Very sweet. It has some of the same elements as Gods and Monsters with Ian McKellan and Brendan Fraser, at least in terms of the older man's infatuation with a young beauty.

Lucky Harry Hamlin getting to kiss him in Making Love, and who could forget the strip tease on ice in Slap Shot.

That's an amazing scene for a film featuring the straightest of all sports
