'80s breakthrough

Bacon's career truly took off in the 1980s. To mark the beginning of the decade, he played a prominent part in Friday the 13th. He made his Broadway debut with Slab Boys in 1982. The film Diner in 1982 finally brought him to the attention of movie critics. A role in Diner led to a role in Footloose, one of his most famous roles. In order to study teenagers, Bacon allegedly attended a local high school under a fake name. His commitment to research helped him earn stellar reviews for his performance. He, however, would suffer negative consequences as a result of his rise to fame with Footloose. Kevin Bacon rejected roles similar to those he had played in Diner and Footloose because he didn't want to be typecast. Consequently, fewer opportunities and less success followed.

After Footloose

A pair of major roles in the '90s marked Kevin Bacon's return to form: Tremors and Flatliners. In spite of his success, Bacon realized that he wasn't going to make it as a leading man, so he reinvented himself as a character actor. The change in philosophy led to some of his most memorable roles in films such as JFK and A Few Good Men. Over the next few years, he split his time between theater work and well-received film roles in movies like Murder in the First, Apollo 13, Sleepers, and Picture Perfect.
