Dennis Quaid is Hollywood’s ‘man for all seasons.’ He reinvented himself in every stage of his career according to the needs and demands of the industry. The Texas-born actor dropped out of college to follow the footsteps of his brother, who is also an accomplished actor. After landing in LA in the mid-70s, Quaid managed to get into Jonathan Demme’s ‘Crazy Mama (1975).’ His first significant role was in the 1977 film, ‘September 30, 1955’. Quaid emerged as a talent to reckon with after his breakthrough role in ‘Breaking Away (1979).’ His long-cherished dream of sharing screen space with his brother Randy Quaid was finally realized with the movie ‘The Long Riders (1978).’
After a lower stride in his career, Quaid returned to his prime with movies like ‘The Right Stuff (1983),’ ‘The Big Easy (1987),’ ‘Innerspace (1987),’ and ‘Great Balls of Fire! (1989).’ He went into a hiatus after ‘Postcards from the Edge (1990).’ Quaid turned his return into a celebration with the critically acclaimed movie, ‘Wyatt Earp (1994).’ The actor prepared himself for the demanding role by shedding around 42 pounds.
After his directorial debut in the 1994 TV movie, ‘Everything That Rises,’ Quaid again went into another low-key mode. The early 2000s witnessed his return with ‘Any Given Sunday’ and ‘Frequency’; ‘Far From Heaven (2002)’ and ‘Vantage Point (2008)’ later followed. Quaid soon moved into television with the 2012 show ‘Vegas.’ At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Dennis Quaid movie or TV show?
