Slater's making a comeback? For real? All I've seen him doing recently was that crummy (and cancelled) FOX sitcom and a bunch of direct-to-video garbage.
I was a big fan growing up- Pump Up The Volume and Broken Arrow are guilty pleasures, and I just flat-out love True Romance- so I'd like nothing more than to see him back and doing quality projects. His guest spot on Curb Your Enthusiasm seemed like a great start, but then he followed that up with a bunch of dreck. Sort of figured that he was basically dunzo.
Check out IMDB, he's done at least a dozen movies in the past year. I know that doesn't mean much necessarily (in fact it's usually a bad sign) but I suppose with the law of averages and all, one of those suckers might be a hit. He's co-starring with Stallone in a new movie and there's a couple there that look promising
Well fuck me with a cucumber, this is exists.
The studio even fired Thomas Jane as Stallone's side-kick (solely because they felt that the cast needed "more color") and that really disappointed the hell out of me. I like the Asian kid from the Fast & The Furious movies as much as the next guy, but needlessly shoe-horning ethnic diversity into the movie just for the sake of it kind of left a bad taste in my mouth. Seeing Jane and Stallone kick ass together was a bit of a mini-dream of mine, and now I likely won't ever get to see it (unless Sly is smart enough to grab Thom for the next inevitably disappointing Expendables outing, I guess).
