As with most color trends, the colors of 80’s were more black, more gray and more orange than in the 90’s. I’ve seen color schemes including a combination of black and a blue/grey scheme. That would have been pretty common in the 80’s.
If you had a dream about an 80’s movie, what movie might that be?
I was so excited to see ‘Star Wars’, even though I had seen the original ‘Star Wars’ only twice. Then I saw the second one – I really enjoyed it, and I decided to write my own script. I knew I should get to know the characters better, and so I focused on their friends, their families, and their relationships. I started with Luke and Leia, and worked my way up to Han Solo. Then I started working more in the background as well, and when I hit the big screen, I was just floored with the audience reaction.” – Tom Arnold
What is your favourite ’80’s movie?
“Dirty Dancing, because I found it so romantic. I loved the film and still do.” – Tom Arnold
Can you name any movie you would like to have been in?
“I’m more of a movie buff, so if I could’ve taken on the role of any person in ‘Hercules’, I would’ve said Bruce Wayne, because he embodies everything we love about the Batman.” – Tom Arnold
What is your favourite Disney character/movie?
“Sully, because I’m a sucker for those stories. And ‘The Little Mermaid’ – they did a great job. And they did a wonderful job with Ariel too, especially being in the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ movie. She’s super-cool. That was amazing.” – Tom Arnold
What do you consider your greatest achievement as an actor?
“Playing ‘Pulp Fiction’. I got to play Jack Reacher. I got to play a man who couldn’t go to his doctor for fear of being sent to the psychiatric ward. I got to play a guy who could have been on ‘The Blacklist’ or any show of that time, which I thought was a great idea. I got to play a man who would be able to take down whoever could be doing anything to him. And I got to make a choice between my family and my career. It was incredible. It’s a privilege to do it.” – Tom Arnold
