Let's go with some Academy Award winners.

Lou Gosset Jr.
Adrien Brody
Cuba Gooding Jr. (mentioned plenty already).

Of course Nic Cage is already well-trod territory.

I want some more Steven Segal. I want some Chuck Norris. More Val Kilmer? Hell, I'm sure Lou Gossett (who I now notice was mentioned above) has more garbage that he's been in than just Iron Eagle.

I do like the post asking for Heigl, Julia Roberts and Adam Sandler. Speaking of, Sandler could be the "comedy" equivalent of the action stars they've covered quite a bit.

The 2 Corey's either together or separate. License to Drive, Dream a Little Dream would be great. For Haim you've got Fast Getaway and my personal favorite; "A Prayer for the Roller Boys." That would have made a great companion piece on a double live show with Solar Babies.

Yes, there is far too little Segal in HDTGM. It's good to see some Kurt Russell coming up finally with Escape From LA. I'd also like some more Jan Michael-Vincent.

Someone mentioned Eric Roberts. Yes, would love to see Best of the Best or any Roberts really.

How about this piece of Seagal?

Oh man, so good to see some Christopher Lambert finally on HDTGM next episode. I forgot about him. Fortress is another classic.

I mentioned them earlier in thread. Haim has been indirectly covered in the Crank 2 episode, but he's not really a central part of that movie.

I'm actually wondering if the avoidance of the Coreys is somewhat intentional, given the darkness/tragedy surrounding their personal lives.

I was perusing the Sidney J. Furie canon (in light of this week's upcoming Ladybugs episode) and one name jumped out at me: Tia Carrere

How the hell has *she* avoided HDTGM treatment? It could be that most of her movies were too insignificant to garner notice but still: Jury Duty, Hollow Point, High School High, Kull (not to be mistaken with Krull) the Conqueror? That looks like some pretty prime terrible material.

God help me, I like an Adam Sandler comedy now and again. You can say anything about them being crappy and lazily made and I'll agree but I still find him watchable somehow.

Have they done any Gwyneth Paltrow movies outside of Marvel? I can't remember.

But View From the Top, Shallow Hal, Proof, Possession are all excellent selections, in my opinion, for discussion on HDTGM.

Also for Wesley Snipes didn't they do one of the Blade movies? If not they should.They definitely did Demolition Man. How about The Recall (2017)? That seems worthy.

Pretty soon the gang is covering Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.

I'm going blonde:

Kim Basinger. I know they've done My Stepmother is an Alien, but it looks like KB has been in a bunch of turds despite being in some good films. Cool World? Bless the Child?

Daryl Hannah. I don't think she has been in a film on here yet, but there is some real garbage in her filmography, again despite being in some good films along the way. High Spirits would be a good start.
