Best action actor ever. His most badass look was in Cobra, I don't know why this movie is so underrated. Stallone all day every day. I watched about 100 times each Rocky and Rambo movie. My favourite actor, by the way he is still kicking ass in his 70s.

It's not from the 80s but his best movie was definitely A Few Good Men
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 LOVE Michael J Fox! From Family Ties to Teen Wolf to back to the Future, he is absolutely iconic. Michael is adorably cute and sexy in a really adorable way! What an absolutely talented actor... love him!
He should be at the top, he is a great actor and fits into many different roles well.
Back to the future, secret to my success, bright lights big city and cassualties of war are a few examples. Not to mention family ties or spin city.
Michael played in back to the future the best time travel movie of all time

His was honestly amazing, my two favourite films of all time are my own private Idaho and stand by me, he was so talented and beautiful inside and out , taken from us too soon, I love you river I hope to meet you one day, you are on of my biggest idols, you are still stunning people with your talent years after you left us
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.
The greatest young actor of all time, River brought so much soul and emotion to his performances. His role as Chris Chambers in Stand By Me is one of the most beautiful performances of any film. River was a beautiful person inside and out, and his death was such an enormous loss. He is truly and deeply missed.
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.
Ferris Bueller's was AMAZING
