Which former 80's celebs do you miss the most that have been out of the limelight due to motherhood, hatred of hollywood or just a career change?

1. Phoebe Cates- Kevin Kline must be treating her real good to be out this long. hell, why didn't thy make Private School into a sitcom?

2. Jenny Wright- I fear for her as Near Dark co-star Adrian Pasdar said she got in with a bad crowd.

3. Daphne Zuniga-No idea if it's motherhood or tired of the casting couch.

4. Michael Schoeffling-Ok, a no brainer, total milk carton material, somewhere, someone sits in their comfy Jake Ryan-made furniture..hey, he must be good with his hands, maybe he could revive the MacGyver series, or get the Bob Villa crown.

5. Deborah Foreman-if she only had as many roles as as many fans. Please come back, I'm writing the script of Valley Parents as we speak. Nick Cage's asking price could be a bit of a problem though.

6. Michelle Meyrink-Another canadian cutie valley girl/Real Genius alumni looks like she's in family life lockdown, as long as she is happy.

7. Jonna Lee- Quarterback Princess/Making the Grade cutie hasn't been seen since in anything since 1990, sixteen years people!

8. Amanda peterson-I thought she would be huge after Can't buy me love, she looked poised to ge Heathers-like roles, but the bsuiness isn't for everyone I guess.

9. Daniel Jordano-of Alphabet City/ Playing for Keeps fame, was a fast talking rising star for a while, but just dissapeared. Could have gotten roles Jonathan Silverman did and then some.

10. Heather Thomas-of Zapped fame, should have gotten more Heather Locklear/Morgan Fairchild roles.

11. Cherrie Currie-of Runaways/Foxes fame, I thought for sure she would get more roles in the 80's in action flicks or femme fatales.

My number one has to be Sherri Stoner.

She had a starring role in "Reform School Girls" as Lisa, the psychologically damaged girl with a stuffed bunny. She also had small roles in "Lovelines" and "Casual Sex?".

She changed her career to writer in the 90s, working on "Animaniacs" and "Tiny Toon Adventures" as well as the movie "Casper".

She hasn't appeared on-screen for more than a decade-and-a-half (outside of a few interviews for "Casper" and some awards show appearances in the early 90s). She may have starred in some cheesy movies but she was a genuine talent. She should be in her mid-to-late-40s now but I could easily imagine her coming back on-screen as a wisecracking sidekick or possibly a tough older woman (She could use the raspy Brooklyn Jew voice she used for Slappy Squirrel on "Animaniacs").

FWIW, she was also the model for Ariel in "The Little Mermaid".

Sincerely,

John Kilduff

I know he's been in a few minor things, but I would like to see C. Thomas Howell in more.

Daphne Zuniga is in some sitcom that returns to ABC in March...I can't think of the name...I think it's Family something or other. I saw the ad in US Magazine. So, she's still around.

Keith Gordon - I wish he would come out from behind the lens long enough to appear in something. He was way creepy in Christine but he also has a funny side.

Billy Jayne- He was very funny in Just one of the Guys. He's kind of a poor man's Patrick Dempsey.

Catherine Bach- Where the heck is Daisy Duke?

Great topic Rip! I would have to say my favorite Michael Schoeffling and probablly Michelle Meyrink. I cannot believe how she totally disappeared from acting all together.

I think that Keith Gordon would scare me now because I think he is bald.

Very funny about Billy Jayne being the poor man's Patrick Dempsey. I bet he winds up getting a gig on TV and becoming as popular as Patrick. He is definitely better looking now, Billy that is!

Great list Mane1980!

How about Deborah Goodrich ...last I heard she was in one of Julia Roberts weddings. She was great in Just One Of The Guys & April Fool's Day.

The sitcom is called "Beautiful People"....I've seen tons of advertisements for it.

Mane 1980, after watching the "100 Greatest Teen Stars" and realizing how cool Joyce Hyser is personality wise, it would be nice to see her get a few more roles. I had no idea she was on LA Law for a couple of years because I never watched it.

Hopefully with what has happened to Patrick Dempsey with "Grey's Anatomy" will open the doors for more 80's actors. Now that would be Awesome!

I know he's heavily into religion now, but Kirk Cameron used to be funny, bring that back. He seems so serious these days.
