You may think Shelley Long is an odd name to be buzzing around Hollywood these days. She was hugely popular in the nineties but seemed to disappear for a little while, seemingly making her a more viable candidate for a Where Are They Now? But Long has the one thing going for her that so many of my other picks don't: she has a cult classic under her belt!
Why My Friends Are Talking About Her: Get ready to feel old, loyal reader(s)! This year, the ultimate tween movie of my generation, Troop Beverly Hills, turns twenty years old! And in honor of that, some diehard fans have put together a sing-a-long/quote-a-long in Hollywood. Sure, Long has worked, guesting in various sitcoms, and taking parts in small movies, including two for 2009. However, among many, she is still best known for two roles: Troop Beverly Hills...and a little show called Cheers. So, here's hoping Long wants to give back to all of her long-time fans and shows up tonight!
