Back to life: John Candy and Anna Malle (She was a porn actress, but an actress nonetheless).

Back to their prime: Kathleen Turner and Mickey Rourke.

Sincerely,

John Kilduff...

I wish that Kathleen Turner could go back to the way she was in the 80s...Thin, sexy and no raspy voice.

Back to life...
- Christopher Reeve

Back to their prime is tougher because so many former greats are doing really interesting things in their slump (I would have picked Harrison Ford if he hadn't already been named), but:
- Kevin Costner
