Both a respected musician and actor, Smith segued to the silver screen and gave stellar performances in Six Degrees of Separation (1993), Independence Day (1996), Men in Black (1997), Enemy of the State (1998), Wild Wild West (1999), Ali (2001) and Bad Boys II in 2003.

Heather Locklear (1961): Locklear has spent the majority of her career working for producer, Aaron Spelling. After all, it was Spelling who discovered that Locklear’s star power could save a sinking television show. Locklear first was introduced to television audiences as Krystle’s niece, Sammi Joe, on Dynasty. After her success on that evening drama, Locklear was cast as Officer Stacy Sheridan on "T.J. Hooker." In the early ‘90s, Spelling called Locklear, asking her to join the cast of the 20-something show, "Melrose Place." Locklear felt she was too old, but it was her sexy, sophisticated character, Amanda Woodward, who saved the show from being cancelled. In addition to her small screen success, Locklear has appeared in the films Firestarter (1984), The First Wives Club (1996) and Money Talks (1997).

In addition to Superman, some of Reeve’s other memorable credits include The Remains of the Day (1993), Speechless (1994) and Village of the Damned in 1995.
