Just finished wathing Tuff Turf w' James Spader as lead...began to wonder why his career didn't take off like some of the other young stars in his generation...seemed posed to become a big star, and kinda fell short...smaller parts in Pretty In Pink, Mannequin, Less Than Zero. What are people's thoughts in general about his acting career?

* Me and my wife have been together for 12 years and we have a running James Spader joke....we made a bet at the first of our relationship that James Spader was in fact not in the Karate Kid...she thought he was...I KNEW he wasn't...mistook him for "Johnny"..a different blondie with the same "feathered" hair. We still reference it today...if we're stuck on trying to figure who starred in what...she always says that James Spader was in it...ha ha ha h....OK...so it's not funny....but it is to us...

Spader and Tuff Turf rules!
I´m collecting his 80s and early 90s movies.

I have 9 James Spader flicks at the moment (timespan 1981-1991)

Spader was great playing the original Dr. Jackson in one of my favorite movies ever - Stargate:

He was also great in Sex, Lies, and Videotape!

Stargate is awesome (see my TOP 5 post in social forum)

I actually liked Spader best as a *******... New Kids, PIP, Less Than Zero etc.

But Tuff Turf is one of my favourite movies, so he works fo me as the good guy as well!

spader is another actor i like seeing in movies, whether he's playing the villain or not. he's a great actor. sometimes his roles are pretty out there (crash, the secretary...not 80s movies).

i have never seen tuff turf.

i do like him in stargate and pretty in pink.

I always wanted to beat the sh1t out of James Spader. Well, I mean his characters. [Smile] He always plays the perfect prick.

Yeah, he really perfected the '80s preppie a s s h o l e role like nobody else. He just seethed smarminess. Pretty in Pink was his crowning glory. For me, he was the one that stole that movie, not Cryer.

I remember going to see this at the theatre. it was a must see. Wasn't memorable I guess cause I don't remember any of it.
I liked his role in that Seinfeld episode.

Jack´s Back is a nice thriller and i also noticed that they are going to release it on blu. I have the Finnish vhs and UK dvd.
I´m sure that we had a thread for this film here but the Spam Wars took many of them away.
Spader always rock and you gotta love Cynthia Gibb!
