Quotables: Damn Right, Corey Feldman

11/8/2013 9:00 AM PST, by Sarah Taylor

"I've never been a bad person, I'm here because I want to continue working, I love the industry that I'm in, I enjoy the work that I do and it's an honor to be able to entertain people ... All I ask is that people give me a chance to do what I feel I should be doing, which is to be in A-list films. I shouldn't be doing independent films after all these years. I like doing them for the art, but not all the time."

--Corey Feldman on wanting another chance to prove his enduring film talents, and he's absolutely right. We've given folks like Robert Downey Jr. and Charlie Sheen multiple chances to rebuild their careers, and Corey has never scandalized the world anything even remotely close to what either Robert or Charlie have in the past. There's zero difference. 

Corey's already established himself as an actor with a lasting gift. Why should he have to do it again and again?

It's funny, his eyes are crooked like Marty Feldman's eyes.

When he gets a year of sobriety beneath his belt, I'd support that move into an A-list film, but not before.

Cory is not in A list movies because he does not have the appeal or "the right stuff" to be in them. It has nothing to do with substance abuse problems from his past.

Lots of former working actors are not working. Not because of behavior or past drug problems but rather they just are not what current A list productions are looking for.

What role can you think of that he would have been a casting choice for? He is a former CHILD star! That's all he ever was. Most child actors cannot make the transition into adult roles. Leo Decaprio is the exception, not the rule.

Cory will never be in an A list movie because he is too oddly and unappealingly unique.
