Ok. This is the best actor of the 80s. He worked so hard to get to where he was! And he made it. Now, you probably don't know, but he was in America for a little, starving! He needed to get on Family Ties, and he did! He knew he had what it took! And he's hot not to mention
I absolutely adored him in back to the future trilogy.
Michael played in back to the future the best time travel movie of all time
Michael was the best. Period.V5 Comments

Tommy makes everyone's day and have worked so hard to get where he is. I love him so muchV2 Comments
He is very underrated but he should be remembered in today's society, by many. Not only were his natural acting abilities inspiring, but the way he cared about everything. He was very environmentally friendly, a strict and committed vegan, and even in the 80s/90s he was supportive of homosexuals. I love him so much and words can't describe how inspiring he is to me and many other people. RIP, sweet River Jude Phoenix.
By far one of the most talented actors of his generation. Stand by me, Running on empty, The mosquito coast, Explorers... To name a few of his films. Stand by me is his best. Such a gifted actor and amazing person. I miss him.
He was a beautiful person and an amazing actor for someone his age. He really understood the art of acting and how to bring himself into character. I miss him.
By far THE best actor of the 80s. River was a beautiful man with a beautiful soul. I still watch all of his films now. RIPV5 Comments
