if you could save one actor from the ravages of time, who would it be?
 
for me, without a doubt, Harrison Ford in his prime.

even though he still looks good, his production is sorely lacking of late...De Niro.
would also save Paul Newman.

Too late, I already saved Monica Bellucci.

I would love to have 45 year old Chuck Norris back.

Heath Ledger or Philip Seymour Hoffman. They should have given us a few more great performances.

He belongs in the ravages of overeating thread.

I think you're missing the point of the question. Ledger dies young and was never affected by the "ravages of time". Hoffman died somewhat young as well and while his acting career was at its peak. These actors could have been saved from theravages of drug addiction, not time.

I would go with Harison Ford as well. And if we could keep Megan Fox from being affected by age that would be great too.

My obvious answer is Harrison Ford.

But thinking back to all the great times I had watching movies in my teens I’d say a mid-90s John Travolta is hard to beat for pure fun. I might even through a mid-90s Nicolas Cage in there too!

:lol:

I'm pretty sure those two already drink the blood of baptized babies. Same as Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner and Jim Parsons.

What? Paul Rudd... he's like 44. I'm sure some "Cool New Member" will bump this thread in 2043 and agree with you though.

Overacting, over-lots of things. I've pretty stopped watching anything he's in.

I'm pretty sure the OP was making a joke about how Macchio and Rudd look way younger than they are.

Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor, for sure. Extraordinarily beautiful and talented. Not just generic Hollywood attractive either, but almost otherwordly in their beauty, like the next step in human evolution.

Y'all are missing out on the obvious answer, me, myself, and I because aren't we all actors on this grand stage called life.

To be fair I have not been ravaged by time, and in keeping with the spirit of the thread I would say someone like Jackie Chan would be fun to see eternally young so we could enjoy a constant stream of viewing his death defying stunts.

Easy answer for me...bring back Brando!

Re: if you could save one actor from the ravages of time, who would it be?
 
Do I know the actor? Will I get to know the actor? Or is this unknown to the actor? These are things I need to know!

Especially if I get to have sex with the person... ;)

Actresses are easy targets for a topic like this, not only because of looks, but being the way Hollywood is, the parts dry up as they get older. So I'll say:

Helen Hunt & Laura Dern

On the male side, how about Redford? I mean he's aged great and seemingly can still do whatever he wants, but to have him in his prime? He appealed to male and female audiences.

Defiant1 10-05-17 02:44 PM

Re: if you could save one actor from the ravages of time, who would it be?
 
Helen Hunt? She was never a great beauty, even in her prime. I never found her funny either, so I think she lucked out big time with Mad About You.

How about Gene Hackman? Somehow movies just haven’t been the same since he retired.

What do I win for getting the question right? ;)
