    Even if it is an actor that you particularly didn't enjoy or did enjoy their work, which movie actors that died from the 90s-00s do you still have with you. Either VHS or DVD...it could also be some porn stars, too, as well. Or childhood favorites or movies that were so-so, but you still kept them. So, which movies do you have to features a certain actor that is no longer with us today? I have so much:

    Peter Graves

    Stalag 17
    Killers From Space
    Airplane I and II

    River Phoenix

    Stand By Me
    Sneakers
    Running On Empty
    Explorers
    Little Nikita
    Mosquito Coast

    She has not really lived in years, she has been surviving.

    I don't know there, Miss Naughty. For ME River's most defining moment was STAND BY ME. Real shame he didn't get to complete INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, he might've been good in that one too.

    The weird thing was that River did audition the Gordie character and the original choice to play Chris Chambers was Corey Haim, but that idea was scrapped at the last minute, so River got the Chris role. Thank God Corey Haim didn't play Chris Chambers. That was a way too complex character for Haim to do, so I was glad he got the Lucas role. And did you know the original choice for Lucas was Kirk Cameron? Ye Gods...what were the casting people smoking back then? Though the ironic part about Top Gun was that Tom Cruise was not the ideal character to play Maverick...it was passed down to two people. Travolta was suggested to the role, but since he was not marketable(back then) due to his numerous flops in the 80s, he was dropped at the last minute. Scott Baio was the ideal choice for Maverick, but he turned it down when he read the script. Hah......1986 was a totally weird year back teh.
