Article: My comeback celebrity wishes for 2008
Originality and more quality films would be my top celebrity comeback wish. I would request less sequels made just to make money. If the sequels are just as good as the first one then that would be a nice switch. As far as individuals in the celebrity status there are many comeback wishes that I can think of.
I have to mention Tom Cruise. Whatever happened to the cool guy dancing in his underwear or the young yet mature pilot? I remember how wonderful he was to watch since he was so natural. Cruise is a great actor, but I just wish the real Tom Cruise would comeback. You know, the one we fell in love with. Cruise just doesn't have the same spark anymore. I don't know if it is the scientology influence or lack of original roles, but I just really miss him.
I can't wish for a comeback of Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones since he is coming back, but honestly it seems kind of scary to think of what they are going to have Ford do. He might fall and break something, but it is wonderful that he is trying.
Another comeback is Rambo. It is amazing that Sylvestor Stallone is attempting this again. Since he did do a wonderful job in the last Rocky film and really gave a completeness to the character (despite it being a little depressing), I am curious to see what he will do with Rambo. I just hope he covers up a little more of his chest though.
In music, I thought for years how I would love to see the Police reunite. Well, they have and I'm extremely pleased this has happened. My next wish is to see NSync reunite. I use to travel and see their concerts in various states and even met them once. No matter what kind of back lash they got for being a "boy band" they really were a talented group of guys. Everyone that worked with them were respectful and very professional. I must say I was impressed.
A comeback of Bob Barker to the Price is Right would be nice. Drew Carey doesn't have the same effect as Barker, but maybe he just needs time. I just miss the Barker. The return of Rosie O'Donnell and the days when she was the Queen of Nice would be a great comeback. I also liked it when she was on The View. I watched it every day because of her, but now it is rather boring.
Steven Spielberg needs to make a comeback by directing a great film once again. He just hasn't been around much lately and I long for another film like E.T. that only Spielberg can make.
Finally, Hollywood is in need of an over-hall and a definite renewal. The Hollywood of yesteryear was glitzy and glamorous whereas these days it seems to be filled with insecure and confused starlets running around trying to find happiness in all of the wrong places. Sometimes the results are prison time or worse, death. A comeback is in desperate need.
