So, should we honour this great Actor / Director with his footprints in cement outside Mann's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood?

Is his list of films small, simply because he is choosy about what he is associated with?

Is his finest hour yet to come?

Or, is he an out of work, child actor, who will be forgotten in 10 years time, who should have realised 'Sliders' was the best thing he did?

Jerry's movies!

Dave.....If you want to view a list of Jerry's movies go to www.imdb.com (internet movie data base)and type in his name. I was surprised to see how many things he's done. But I think,
his more recent movies have put him in a bigger spotlight. His roles aren't small ones and I think he'll get more recognition and better scripts will come to him. Obviously, I voted that his career is about to take off!

Maybe his career is about to take off, I started this thread only because of the all posts discussing whether he is a great actor or not. I don't really have any personal opinion, except that a lot of his work was as a teenager, and he seems to want a directorial career rather than acting.
