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.
Who would you like to see make a comeback?

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.

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.

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.

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.
