Best known for: "Jackie Brown," "Single White Female," "Singles"
Last seen in: "The Whole Shebang"
Comeback plan: "Looooooouisssssssss. Looooooouuuuissssssss." Fonda was the real deal, smart and funny and casually gorgeous, and she seemed to be able to find fun notes to play even in weak material. She hasn't worked at all since 2002, and her last theatrical feature was 2001. She's got a young son, and she's married to Danny Elfman, and she may be perfectly happy with that. But I'd love to see her work again, and it would take someone (maybe Tarantino, who gave her one of her very best roles as the sharp-tongued Melanie in "Jackie Brown") to write something worthy of her enormous wit to remind audiences just how great she is.
