Actors Whose Movie Careers Were Supposed to be Much Bigger

Ally Sheedy

From the Brat Pack.  From 1983-1986 Ally Sheedy was big time.  The Breakfast Club, St. Elmos Fire, Wargames,  Short Circuit.  That’s a phenomenal resume.  Post 1987? What in the world happened?  And Sheedy was very very hyped back in the 80’s.  Personal problems did lead to her demise but it’s a shame.  Her best movie post 1987 was by far Only the Lonely which was a pretty solid flick.
