You'll notice straight away that most on this list are still working in their respective fields in one way or another. But every single one is a shadow of their former star power and it's my hope that one day they will be back on top. It's not that I can't move on to today's stars, it's that I won't. I FEAR CHANGE!
This list might as well begin and end with Rick Moranis. Boy, do I miss that bespectacled spectacle of warmth and humor. How do I know he's an excellent human being? Because when his wife sadly passed in 97 from cancer he selflessly left a storied career to be the best father he could be to his kids. So many stars piss their notoriety away by being destructive and it's high time (heh) we brought back one who genuinely deserves it. That is, if he even wants it at this point. Does anyone need a Key Master?
There's a legitimate reason we haven't seen Blade blading it up lately. And that reason is he's in federal prison for tax evasion. Lucky for us, he is scheduled for release, July 19, 2013. Here's hoping Tarantino snatches him up for whatever he's working on next.
In the 90s, nobody was cooler than Cher Horowitz, aka Alicia Silverstone. So what happened? It could be that her vigilant vegan and animal rights activism took up more of her time. Or, it could be her focus on parenting. But she's never stopped trying to spark the public's interest again. Between a mass grave of failed pilots and some straight to DVD turns it's clear her heart is willing, it's only a matter of time before we all give in.

It's sad there are no more JTT's walking the earth. Once they were plentiful, charming scamps, roaming the BOP and Sassy covers of another era. I've heard it rumored we hunted too much in their natural habitat and now they have no more grazing grounds in which to thrive. It is my wish that one day, the JTT will come back to us, stronger than ever.
Like I said in the introduction, it's not that Winona hasn't been attempting a comeback all these years it's that she has yet to come close to being the stone cold sh*** she used to be. I don't know why we were all so mad she stole some things. She already stole our hearts in Heathers, Reality Bites and Beetlejuice. And, speaking of BeetlejuiceÉ

Where the frak is Michael Keaton? Has anyone been checking on Geena Davis? Maybe they should listen to their old friend Alec B Closing and go out and make something of themselves.
Every February 2nd Dave Chapelle comes out of his mansion and if he sees less than 15 million there will be 3 more years without his contribution to comedy. From reports I think we're at 66 years but I'm hopeful.
Missy Elliott has never left my gym mix and she never will. Hopefully one day she will make more music, til then I wish to stand vigil in a billowing trashbag filled with dreams. Feel better Missy Miss, and come back to us soon.
Who do you wish would make a comeback? Let me know in the comments!
