Lori Loughlin (Secret Admirer, The New Kids, Full House) – I saw Lori first in Secret Admirer, then I saw her in The New Kids (both movies are from 1985). Loved her in both. The New Kids is more of a dark thriller and Secret Admirer is a great 80s teen comedy. She was really pretty and cute with AWESOME hair but she may be even hotter NOW. If you haven’t seen Secret Admirer (here’s the trailer), you really need to. It’s an awesome 80s teen romantic comedy. It’s got 80s teen tropes galore, but it’s really funny. It was also the first time I saw Mrs Travolta, Kelly Preston. And Fred Ward as Preston’s cop father is hilarious.
Heather Thomas (Zapped!, Fall Guy) – Most famous for the “bikini poster” you see above. She was also in the movie Zapped! as well as the TV show The Fall Guy. Two of my favorites. I mean, take a look at her up there. She is just amazing. In 1987 Thomas also appeared in a low budget sci-fi/motorcycle flick called Cyclone.
Cindy Morgan (Caddyshack, TRON) – Her first role was as the sexy Lacey Underall in Caddyshack. She exuded sexuality in that movie and it was her first major role. Next, Cindy was one of the first nerdishly hot chicks as Lora in the classic movie TRON. Two completely different aspects of hotness and she pulled off both. She’s still attractive and makes appearances at Sci-Fi conventions all over the country.
Debra Clinger (Midnight Madness) – I love the movie Midnight Madness and by extension I love Debra Clinger in that movie because she is so sweet and cute you just want to hug her. Look at those f’n DIMPLES! In 1979 Debra did the voice of Elisa in the Rankin-Bass Jack Frost and starred in a TV show called The American Girls with Priscilla Barnes. You Sid & Marty Krofft fans may recognize her as Superchick from Kaptain Kool and the Kongs as well as several other Krofft shows.
Lucinda Dickey (Breakin’, Breakin’ 2, Ninja III: The Domination, Cheerleader Camp) – Breakin’ and Breakin’ 2 will forever be two of my favorite movies. And Lucinda is pretty hot in them, especially Part 2. But she really showed her hotness in Ninja III: The Domination (which Jaime and I talk about in full for the Nerd Lunch podcast). She played an aerobics instructor possessed by a deadly ninja. Tell me that’s not super hot and I’ll call you a LIAR, sir.
Nicole Eggert (Charles in Charge, Baywatch) – Nicole starred as the oldest Powell daughter on Charles in Charge (named Jamie, or course!). Nicole would also famously star as one of the Baywatch babes in the 90s. I was in love with her and if I started watching Charles in Charge because of my fondness for the movie Zapped!, then I kept watching it because of Nicole. And Jennifer Runyon. And Erika Eleniak. Nicole dated and even was engaged to Corey Haim for a while. Corey and Nicole together made several movies including a bizarre, erotic thriller called Blown Away in 1993. It featured Corey Feldman and copious amounts of Nicole and Haim nudity. But, like I said, the movie is BIZARRE.
