Edward Furlong...!

Edward Furlong:

He's one of my favorite actors of all time. His first big role was in T2: Judgment Day, in which he became instantly famous. He's apperead in dozens of films. One of my favorites of his is American History X. He's such a great actor that he plays his character quite well.

By no means is he handome (Remember the strip scene in Detroit Rock City?!?) but he's very good at what he does. I'm a little angry with him that he's so mixed in drugs. He needs help. Too bad he couldn't of been in T3: Rise of the Machines. Oh well, it's his own damn fault.

But Hopefully he will become clean and continue on making great films!

Hmmm....I haven't really seen enough of his movies to really judge him as an actor. He was great in T2 and American History X, but I couldn't shake the nagging feeling that he was essentially playing different variations of the same character--the archetypical "troubled youth." Of course he does it quite well, in these films and even Pet Sematary II (where his mom gets electrocuted in the very first scene!).

Detriot Rock City was a pretty funny movie though. What other good flicks did the guy do? Did he ever try to play a different type of character?

To bad about his drug problems though. He might end up like Robert Downey Jr at this rate.

Never did anything special for me. He's a "meh", and he can even get a tad annoying sometimes.

I would say YAY, he's a pretty good actor and quite handsome (I used to have a huge crush on him before) hope he straightens out his personal life though.

Anywho, he gets a NAY from me. He was great in American History X and Pecker, but other than those films he has never impressed me (his voice in T2 annoyed me....uggghhh!).

yesterday I had a mini ED FURLONG movie marathon but not on purpose. I watched AMERICAN HISTORY X and then T2 & BRAINSCAN was on tv.

YAY-For his film work. NAY-For everything else.

SHIVER ME TIMBERS

I was watching one of my favorites last night, Detroit Rock City... and started thinking about Furlong. Edward, (who likes to go by Eddie) was such a strong actor back in the day... but now what? What happened to him? The drugs perhaps? It was a shame about Terminator 3, and him getting fired from the set.

I want him to make a good comeback. I don't want him to go down the wrong path like Brad Renfro.

Furlong's performance in T2 is underrated, and he did great jobs in American History X and Detroit Rock as well. I say give him time, he's got enough talent to come back strong...

Detroit Rock City was awesome and American History X was his best performance.

I've only seen him in Detroit Rock City, American History X, and Terminator 2. It's a shame he has such a bad drug problem, or at least did at one time, and hasn't really been in anything else. He was very promising from a young age.

Nay. I've only seen two of his movies, but his performance in T2 was terrible. No wonder Cameron picked him off the street.

Wow. That pic is sad. I think he's very underrated. T2, American History X and Detriot Rock City are all on my favorites list. His strip tease is classic in DRC

Man I hope he pulls outta this slump he's in.

T2 was good but Crow Wicked Prayer sucked hard enough to cancel it out, hence I'm neutral towards the guy.

Not casting him in T3 was still a real dick move, IMO.

Oh but he was... His serious drug problem was so bad that they had to fire him.

Wow, he looks REALLY fat in that picture.... Like 80-100 lbs more fatter. That's pretty fucking wild.... I don't like or dislike him. I think he's been ok in the movies I've seen him in, passable at least. Nothing spectacular IMO.

EDIT - Here's another pic of him:

I like his t-shirt stains. Very rock n'roll. Would you want him to make a comeback looking like that Lindsey? Maybe in a John Balushi biopic.

He is going to make a good John Goodman replacement.

Wikipedia is saying that he was always active and doing some kind of roles here and there -
