Released in 1997, John Woo's 'Face/Off' starred John Travolta as an FBI agent who trades faces with a terrorist played by Nicolas Cage to try and thwart his latest plan. The action-packed film was a smashing success with both critics and audiences alike, and became an instant classic. Now, 17 years later, we revisit the cast of this awesome action flick and see what they're up to now.
John Travolta's (Jorm Tracoola's?) Oscar night butchering of Idina Menzel's name into "Adele Dazeem" as he introduced the singer's performance of Best Song winner "Let It Go" has already become its own Internet meme and a cherished memory of everyone who loves to laugh at award shows. That's why it's such good news that Conan O'Brien managed to find the real Adele Dazeem so that she could get the recognition she deserves on 'Conan' Monday night.
It's been a rough decade for John Travolta, and his self-destructive slide looks to continue now that he's signed on to voice the lead character in a Gummy Bears movie. For that reason, we have a hard time believing that he's spoken to the James Bond franchise producers about playing a villain in a future film, but according to a recent interview, he claims that such meetings have occurred and have been fruitful.
John Travolta is now fully immersed in the "Eh, why the hell not?" phase of his career: the actor has signed on to play a Gummy Bear in the upcoming 'Gummy Bear' film, also known as Gummibar in the US. The project is based on the ever-growing and increasingly popular social media phenomenon, according to a press release sent out this weekend.
Quentin Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction' was released in 1994 and became an instant classic: the darkly humorous, non-linear narrative follows the stories of various small-time criminals and mobsters (and one very memorable and mysterious briefcase) as their lives intersect in Los Angeles. Tarantino and co-writer Roger Avary won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the film, which was nominated for an additional six statues, including Best Actor for John Travolta -- who experienced a major comeback thanks to Tarantino casting him as lead hitman Vincent Vega. 20 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're doing now.
In 'Killing Season,' De Niro plays a retired and reclusive American soldier who crosses paths with a Serbian man (Travolta) that he wronged many years earlier.
