Which Stars Need a Tarantino-Style Comeback?

Which Stars Need a Tarantino-Style Comeback?

Everyone loves a comeback, but they’re hard to come by. HitFix has created a list of 10 stars badly in need of one — Quentin Tarantino-style. The director has given many an actor a second wind via creative casting over the course of his career — think John Travolta in “Pulp Fiction” or Pam Grier in “Jackie Brown.”

HitFix notes that “Miami Vice” veteran and former sex symbol Don Johnson has a supporting turn in this Christmas’ “Django Unchained,” which could lead to a Johnson renaissance.

Check out the full photo gallery here and their list below. We’d most like to see Geena Davis, Halle Berry and Kevin Costner get down and dirty in Tarantino’s next film. Our addition to the list: Winona Ryder.

1. Geena Davis

2. Angela Bassett

3. Chow Yun-Fat

4. Eddie Murphy

5. Gene Hackman

6. Halle Berry

7. Kevin Costner

8. Mira Sorvino

9. Roger Moore

10. Wesley Snipes

I love to see Quinten Tarantino take on the Next Die Hard or Beverly Hills Cop.


For me I think Linda Blair deserves this. I hope to see her again in movies.


Agreed about Angela Bassett…and John Travolta needs another one.


Angela Bassett, no doubt. Many on that list have been rightfully recognized for their work. I still feel, considering the breadth of her talent, that Angela has much much more to offer than what we've seen of her so far.


Hackman is retired now and doesnt need a comeback, he's alady cemented himself as one of the best actors of all time.
