I was sitting in this little Hollywood coffee shop over the weekend and I saw Jerry O Connell. Which got me to thinking...if you would have asked me the year 'Stand By Me' was released which one of the kids in the movie would grow up to have the best career...Jerry O'Connell probably would have been last on my list.
Not his fault, but at the time Corey Feldman was pretty huge, as was River Phoenix, and even Will Wheton seemed destined for bigger things than old Verne. But he stayed sane, he stayed grounded, and he stayed alive...and he has done really well for himself.
I think all of this is just an excuse to post a classic John Lennon cover. But I do adore this movie. It's like nostalgia on celluloid.
