Whatever Happened To...?

I was going to select Ralph Macchio as today's subject. Unfortunately I overdosed on the various Karate Kid movies last weekend (seriously there was a marathon on every single day!). So today I will focus on an actress whose life on the big screen could use a jolt.

Geena Davis

Career Highlights: The Fly (1986); Thelma & Louise (1991); A League of Their Own (1992); Beetle Juice (1988); Tootsie (1982); Fletch (1985); The Accidental Tourist (1988); Earth Girls are Easy (1988).

Low Points: Cutthroat Island (1995); Hero (1992); The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996), Speechless (1994); Angie (1994); Quick Change (1991); Transylvania 6-5000 (1985); Stuart Little (1999).

Last Seen On The Big Screen: Stuart Little 2 (2002)

Where You Will See Her Again: Your guess is as good as mine. Ms. Davis has been stuck on the small screen for a few years now. She is the same age as Joan Allen, so clearly there is still time to stage a comeback of sorts.


  1. She'll always have a place in my heart just for the Accidental Tourist. I think this is probably what happens when you marry bad directors and star in their movies.

  2. I think she just made some dramatic family comedy thing.

  3. @Mike - I have a theory that it is career suicide to make a film with your spouse/significant other. Very rarely does it ever work out well.

    @Simon - Davis needs to do something with a little more edge. These light hearted family flicks have done nothing for her.

  4. talented girl indeed.

  5. @Miss Topanga - It is easy to forget how many good films Davis has been in.

  6. Seriously, right? She was in the Commander in Chief made for TV movie a while back and that was it. Good lookin' woman, too.

  7. @Aiden - Davis is definitely easy on the eyes. Which is why it is odd that she is not doing more films.
