Born on July 8, 1958 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Kevin Bacon’s early training as an actor came from The Manning Street. His debut as the strict Chip Diller in Animal House (1978) almost seems like an inside joke, but he managed to escape almost unnoticed from that role. Diner (1982) became the turning point after a couple of television series and a number of less-than-memorable movie roles. In a cast of soon-to-be stars, he more than held his end up, and we saw a glimpse of the real lunatic image of The Bacon. He also starred in Footloose (1984), She’s Having a Baby (1988), Tremors (1990) with Fred Ward,Flatliners (1990), and Apollo 13 (1995).
