10 actors who could use a Quentin Tarantino-steered comeback
It's easy to forget that Geena Davis is an Oscar-winning actress (she won her her supporting turn in "The Accidental Tourist" and was nominated three years later for "Thelma & Louise"), so long has it been since her late '80s/early '90s heyday. Yet she's a far better thesp than she's often given credit for, and ironically one of the films that's deemed responsible for her demise as a bankable leading lady - the cult 1996 Renny Harlin actioner "The Long Kiss Goodnight" opposite Tarantino standby Samuel L. Jackson - not only boasts one of her best performances but suggests the darker, dirtier layers lurking beneath her sunny persona. That facet of Davis's acting arsenal is right up Tarantino's alley, and with the right vehicle there's no doubt he could harness it in career-redefining ways.
