25. MICHAEL J. FOX AS ERIKSSON IN CASUALTIES OF WAR (1989)
Who doesn’t love those Back To The Future movies? The first two specifically were formative for us as youngsters, catapulting shrimpy Michael J. Fox to the pop-culture-icon stratosphere. In between Back To The Future and Back To The Future 2, though, he took a shot at dramatic credibility in Brian De Palma’s dark Vietnam film Casualties Of War. Pitted against the ferocious Sean Penn, Fox, not for lack of effort, looked like a boy playing with items in his father’s gun collection.
