Whatever Happened To...?

Edward Furlong

If you are serious horror fan, than you probably already know the answer to today’s question. It turns out Edward Furlong has been keeping himself busy the last few years by making a slew of horror flicks. Most have ended up going straight to DVD but that does not seem to be slowing Furlong down. Personally I thought, after T2 and Little Odessa, Edward’s career would have taking off much more than it has. While Edward Furlong might not be a name that can open up a major film on his own; one would at least think he would be getting decent supporting roles at the least.

Career Highlights: Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991); American History X (1998); A Home of Our Own (1993); Little Odessa (1994); Before and After (1996)

Low Points: Pecker (1998); Detroit Rock City (1999); Pet Cemetery II (1992); American Heart (1992); Brainscan (1994)

Last Seen On The Big Screen: Detroit Rock City (1999)

Where You Will See Him Again: The Green Hornet with Seth Rogen


  1. Uh... OK, I was going to defend Detroit Rock City since I enjoyed that film. Then again, it's a film from KISS of all people so I can't defend it.

    Yeah, what happened to him? I know he had some drug busts and got arrested for releasing some crabs or something. I just saw him in a B movie where he played a loser on a reality show and then gets revenge on the girl who rejected him. Then he kidnaps four people for his own reality show and such.

    Awful film. Let's hope The Green Hornet is his comeback. Looks good though.

  2. The Green Hornet? Really?

    I also liked him in Jimmy and Judy.

  3. Wow, I forgot about A Home of Their Own, that was a good movie wasn't it? I'd say his lowest point was that fourth direct-to-video Crow movie Wicked Prayer. Man that was a bad one, not that I expected it to be good but man oh man.

  4. @thevoid99 – I knew putting Detroit Rock City in the “Low Points” would irk some people. Frankly, the movie did nothing for me. I guess you have to really love KISS to get all the references in the films.

    @Simon - I was shocked to see that Furlong is in the Green Hornet as well. I never pictured him doing an action-comedy. I will have to look up Jimmy and Judy as I had not heard of it before.

    @Mike – I really enjoyed A Home of Our Own. It was not a flashy movie but I thought Kathy Bates did a great job in it. I did not see Wicked Prayer, I have only seen up to the first two or three Crow flicks.

  5. ...has it really been that long since we last saw him on the big screen. A full decade. Having said that, Furlong was never the most expansive actor.

  6. @Dan - True but he did have a knack for finding good roles in memorable films.
