  1. There's something about the 80s that makes everything look so badass. Some of my favorites there, Caine, Pesci, Nicholson... And thanks to Seth MacFarlane I can't take James Woods seriously anymore.

    Got you an award Josh! I don't know if you do this kind of stuff, but here: http://filmflare.blogspot.pt/2012/07/blog-award.html

  2. I'm looking for an actors name. In the 80's he had long blonde hair, was tall, had dimples and a long face with a mischievous grin. I picture him with books under his arms, but I can't remember the many movies he was in for a short time. He never was a star, just a supporting actor.
