    I was talking to people at work about my thread about who will be the acting icons of the future. The discussion turned to "If you can bring an actor back or if they are very old and want them younger who would it be?" Give you 5 choices....

    1-Jimmy Stewart
    2-Steve McQueen
    3-Kirk Douglas (make younger)
    4-Sean Connery (make him a little younger so he will be around for a while.)
    5-John Belushi (So much comedy left to give)

    I am bad. I didn't pick any woman. But, these were my 5 top choices.

    I don't know if he's considered an acting icon, but it sure would have been cool if Bruce Lee lived longer.

    Along the "wish they would have lived longer" idea, I also add River Phoenix.

    John Spencer. So West Wing could be completed without his sad demise "forced" into the storyline, and so he'd be available at reunions or spin-offs, if any. And of course for his own sake, he was great -- it would've been nice to see him as the lead in his own series.

    Is James Dean better left dead with all of the mystery of what his career could have been?

    I think that he would have self destructed had he lived....he's was likely one of those guys that shone brightest when they are young and hungry and later burnout as they grow older and their popularity fades. He would have probably either gone strange like Marlon Brando or turn to drugs and booze like others have. That's the vibe I get from James Dean.
