The Jason Bateman thread got me to thinking. I'd love to see Cyndi Lauper, Allison Arnigram, Terrence Trent D'Arby and Tom Wopat make a comeback.
Jason Bateman's an entitled, used up, fugly cunt.
I seriously hate that asshole and hope he remains in obscurity.
Spill, R1. I can tell you got some real dirt.
One of the reasons I hate that Bateman douche linked below. Yeah, it was over two years ago. But he went online (or maybe he gave TMZ a statement, I can't remember) saying something to the effect that he was a busy actor and that he felt he'd helped the company promote their product by being there so he thought it was just fine and dandy that they'd come pick him out of line and escort him in.
What a complete asshole. And not even a truly famous asshole.
I want my Bradys back. I want Greg, Marcia, Jan, Peter, Bobby, Cindy and Mom Brady back in a new show. Especially Greg!!! All played by the original actors. Hell, even throw in Cousin Oliver and Alice. The Brady Bunch was the best show ever on television and we need a return to quality. It would be a groovy show and the most far out thing we've seen in decades.
Barry Williams, Self-Promoter
How about Brendan Fraser? He's made some shitty choices in movies, but he's still funny as hell as well as tall and, when he wants to be, lithe and muscular.
Melissa Gilbert and the SHITBRA!
R5: Mmmm, Brendan. I'd love to pull his toupee off and lick the top of his head clean.
R7 Isn't that Ben Affleck? LOL
Jesus, here we go with the anti-Madonna loon who'll now post incessantly about old Madge and what a cunt she is.
R8 = Thread Killer
Brenda Dickson. It's about the time someone took a chance on that hot mess of a queen. She makes Deidre Hall and Susan Lucci look small time in comparison!
Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, Kristy McNichol, Jimmy McNichol, Scott Baio, The Bay City Rollers, Lance Kerwin, Debby Boone and Linda Blair, Jimmy Baio, Todd Bridges, and the annoying little girl on The Love Boat.
'70s Roller-Disco Chick
[quote] old Madge and what a cunt she is.
I agree, that shouldn't be done!
After all, why be redundant and tell everyone what we all already know? That whore, I mean horse, is (metaphorically) dead. No need to whip it further.
R13 A B. Dick reality show would be amusing....but sort of sad. Brenda is OUT THERE.
Good one on Todd Bridges. He was a vet with PTSD on Everybody Hates Chris and still had great comedy chops as well as making his character someone you cheered for. He was the best actor on Diff'rent Strokes (not saying a lot) but he was in some tearjerking 70s movie and was excellent in that too.
Kiss. Paul, Gene, Ace and Peter (he was the cute little teddy bear, you know) were just the grooviest. I want to be able to use my Love Gun lunch box again without embarrassment.
Patti Page. I haven't seen her in ages. It's time for a comeback.
Brian De Palma
Todd Bridges aged nicely too.
At least you could spell Alison Arngrim correctly, OP, so this thread would turn up on her Google alert.
Lisa Fucking Stansfield
[quote]saying something to the effect that he was a busy actor and that he felt he'd helped the company promote their product by being there so he thought it was just fine and dandy that they'd come pick him out of line and escort him in.
Link to this made-up bullshit?
As for the OP, Cyndi Lauper still tours and occasionally releases new music. She was on Celebrity Apprentice, too. She's just too crazy to be a seriously big deal again. (Same with TTD.)
Tom Wopat's in Django Unchained and he does work semi-regularly.
As for Madonna, her tour was the top-grossing tour of the year.
Frederica von Stade, Allan Kayser, Kreskin, Aled Jones, Donna Theodore, Debbie Shapiro, Scott Wise
Christopher Atkins. I totally fell in love with his sweet persona on that reality show a few years back where former idols tried out for a comeback. He seems really genuine, and still so sexy.
In all fairness, Bateman later apologized for going along with Apple pulling him out of line.
Brendan Fraser is STILL funny? When was he funny in the first place?
Doesn't Cyndi have a show on cable now?
I'm hoping Wentworth Miller will have a comeback with Loft and Stoker due out the same time.
He's one of the few who can out-quip Jon Stewart, might be the only one. His cameo in Brain Candy nearly stole the movie and he's great in comedy movies. He's a funny guy. Smart too and Canadian so he's not a dick about it.
[quote]Doesn't Cyndi have a show on cable now?
Yes, she's on that show with Fran Drescher.
I wish once and for all, that Tatum O'Neal would conquer her demons and make a comeback. I have always liked her.
Not the original poster, but Brendan Fraser was good in Airheads and even Encino Man. Oh and George of the Jungle - that movie was surprisingly funny. The bit with the horse still cracks me up.
Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, George Harrison, Jim Morrison, Michael Jackson, Maurice & Robin Gibb, Mama Cass, Janis Joplin, James Brown, John Bonham, Bon Scott, Donna Summer, Whitney Houston, Ronnie James Dio, Jackie Wilson, Buddy Holly, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson, Brad Delp, Sylvester, Johnny Cash, Randy Rhoads, Cliff Burton,Phil Lynott, Gary Moore, Kurt Cobain, Patti Page, Layne Staley,etc.
Great musicians that made this world a better place. I want them back.
R41: Good call on those! :). I would like to see Harrison Ford make a comeback. I really miss seeing him in good roles. He was on such a winning streak, and then...
Madge? As in the Palmolive lady?
R43 - I LOVE Edie McClurg. Great choice!
Cyndi Lauper has already made about 3 comebacks too many. She's an overrated bitch, cannot stand her ever since she did that Trump reality show. She needs to go away...stat!
70's Robby Queen
Blair, Jo, Natalie, Pootie and Mrs. Garrett.
Geri Jewell and George Clooney
Whet to Mike Myers?
Man, I non-stop giggled throughout Wayne's World and Austin Powers; all of them.
Did "The Love Guru" cause him to permanntly retire and hide? I heard he was going to produce a bioflick of Kieth Moon. Fine, if he's only producing because he's too old to play him. Besides, one can know that Moon is the best rock & roll drummer ever but still, his life isn't fodder for a film.
Where are you Myers?
Jason Bateman is in tons of movies. He hardly needs a comeback.
Tom Wopat is in Django Unchained.
Miss Loni Anderson !!
So funny as Kiki Spelling on
I'd like to see Diana Ross release one more pop/dance album before she hangs it up. All of those cheesy love songs and easy listening shit she's done the last 20 years is boring as hell. I want another "Swept Away" or "Workin' Overtime"-type album; something current.
Shut up R66
R69 Fuck off.
Abe Vigoda is seconds away from becoming a major film star of epic proportions.
Aren't any of you afraid of what some of these people must look like now? Dear God, they are ancient.
I vote for LiLo. Yes, she's in rough shape, but still young enough to turn it around. She was cute and talented as a teen. It's sad to see her throw it all away.
Cher, Barbra Striesand, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan. Also Jamie Lee Curtis
Comeback?!...... I hate that word. It's a return, a return to the millions of people who have never forgiven me for deserting the screen.
I think Miss Dionne Warwick is due for a comeback. I know last we heard from her here she was stuck in Brazil with her handmaid Cindi and a few cartons of cigarettes....
I would say either Miss Angie Dickinson or Miss Susan Anton.
Because every now and then I fall apart.....
The Captain and Tennille
R6, I'm new. Can you explain?
Cyndi just won a grammy for memphis blues and her tour sold out many locations. She was a hoot when she toured with Dr. John. Cyndi is doing fine and she is not crazy.
Teri Garr is too ill for a comeback. She'll be dead before 2013 ends.
I want Kay Lenz and mimi Kuzyk. Maybe they can do a grammie lezzie flick. They've been around forever and need starring vehicles so they can win Oscars, tonys and lifetime validation awards.
[quote]Cyndi just won a grammy for memphis blues
No, she didn't.
[quote]she is not crazy.
Oh yes she is!
R80 wants to know about the SHITBRA.
Who wants this one? : - )
Cyndi Lauper needs to do a tour of her hits songs and forget about the pretentious crap she's released for the last 20 yrs. No one gives a crap about that. She's also spreading herself too thin, has become annoying and overexposed!
Kim Carnes has an interesting back catalog and with a small tight rock band could do a fabulous set of her songs. She deserves a comeback.
Dee Dee Rescher
"The Comeback" with Lisa Kudrow
Paul Davis (his songs)
Would love to see Duran Duran get another top ten hit. Their last album was great, but it didn't seem to really go anywhere.
I'd also love for Thomas Dolby to have another hit. His last album was... kinda meh (his weakest). Which is sad, because the ones before that were really strong even if they didn't do that well in popularity.
Vicki Lawrence (for her music)
Rosanne Cash (but only if she'll tour with her 80s hits with Rodney Crowell!)
Valerie Carter, a truly amazing singer - all of her albums are superlative!
Susan St. James
The Dixie Chicks - Victims of modern day blacklisting.
Jan Hooks,Molly Shannon and Cheri Oteri.
I thought their music sucked, the Dixie Chicks. Absolutely worthless, just terrible singing, they destroyed that Stevie Nicks song.
Julie Brown of "Just Say Julie" and "Medusa: Dare to be Truthful" fame
Rod la Rocque and Vilma Banky!
Melanie Griffith has had a recurring role on Raising Hope this season.
[quote] Elias Koteas
You said his name! The Elias Koteas troll will be awakened!!!!!!
There is an Elias trollbot here? Can you link me to a thread?
My fave singer ever, Leo Sayer
Heath Ledger. He hasn't done much since that Batman movie.
re Melanie Griffith, a recurring role on a tired sitcom is not a comeback.
The Jim Crow laws.
Lulu (but with the right collaborators, i.e Jeff Beck et al., not the latest boyband)
Joey Heatherton could've been incredible in the Chicago revival. Like Melanie Griffith. But with chops.
Two people I never want to see return: Mike Myers and that heifer Ashanti. Neither one was good at what they did.
r114, have your seen Joey Heatherton in the last 10 yrs.? Her looks are gone, her mind is gone, she's a junkie, her chops are nonexistent.
agree, especially Ashanti, a no talent whore.
I was thinking in the early days of the revival (1996+). But I concede it's rather a pipe dream.
Don't call it a comeback, but Helen Reddy is playing BB King's here in NYC next month and has a rather nice photo to promote it, a pic of her laughing. She looks good. Hope she does "Angie Baby". Also Sheila E, and John Corbett are coming there.
Anita Bryant. Just kidding.
The Sunshine Tree
Yes, Valerie Cherish wins this contest.
That TV show was before its time, God it was so damn good and funny.
1980's Kim Basinger
and the kid that played Charlie in the 1970's Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The winner of this thread is Valerie Cherish in "The Comeback" - funny series, funnier than "Friends" ever was.
r128 - That's Peter Ostrum. He's a vet now with no interest in show business.
Carrie Fisher (as an actress)
Chloe Webb's made something of a comeback playing William H Macy's estranged wife in Shameless.
The Electric Light Orchestra
What did Faye Dunaway do that has her so cut-off from Hollywood? Would love to see her make a raging, full on comeback!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
