Take Me Out Tonight: Five 80s Boys We'll Always Love

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | July 10, 2013 | Comments ()


Stuck in the 80s? Not a problem—tons of bands and musicians are making their comebacks and touring again; some of the fashion is (hilariously) showing up in shops and magazines…neon, jellies, high-waisted pants and shorts. Heck, even Schwarzenegger’s Terminator is getting in on the act. The hair may have been really bad, but certain things should endure—like these five favorites who thankfully, have never gone away.

1. Michael J. Fox





Shtick That Stuck: Perennial Mr. Nice Guy

What’s Next: After a stint as a rival attorney on “The Good Wife,” Fox returns to headlining his own show on NBC: “The Michael J. Fox Show” He’ll star as a former news anchor trying to restart his career after being diagnosed and learning to live with Parkinson’s Disease. Begins September 26th.

2. James Spader





Yeah, he’s kind of a preppy pimp now, but he’s a damned good pimp.

Shtick That Stuck: The Bad Boy We Can’t Help Wanting

What’s Next: NBC’s “The Blacklist” features Spader as a criminal—on the FBI’s most wanted list—who surrenders, then tries to wheel and deal himself out of prison by claiming he’s the only person who can help find some of the world’s worst terrorists. Starts September 23rd.

3. Kiefer Sutherland





Shtick That Stuck: Gruff Voiced Tough Guy.

What’s Next: Filming Pompeii and a return to form as Jack Bauer in “24: Live Another Day” on Fox. (2014)

4. Robert Downey Jr.





Shtick That Stuck: Egotistical and Yet…Likable.

What’s Next: The Judge (2014), Jon Favreau’s Chef (2014) and Tony Stark/Iron Man’s next outing in The Avengers 2 (2015).

5. Rob Lowe





Shtick That Stuck: More Than Just a Pretty Face.

What’s Next: Lowe stars as John F. Kennedy in National Geographic Channel’s “Killing Kennedy,” (2013) and as Ulysses S. Grant in the miniseries “To Appomattox,” (gearing up for Kickstarter).

Pajiba Love Express
Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
