I'm glad Thomas had a more normal childhood than his movie co-star Drew Barrymore. Of course, Drew ended up becoming a bigger name in show biz, but the business is fickle and this appearance could set Thomas into more visible roles. Wouldn't that be a hoot if Thomas and Barrymore appeared once more together in a television show or movie (besides reunion shows)? If he's not done raping the stuff he made 20 years ago, perhaps Spielberg could do a sequel to E.T.
On second thought, that's a really bad idea. Let's leave the past in the past.
This cool site has a rundown of where all the stars from yesteryear are. Not just the cast of The White Shadow, but also the cast of Mary Poppins, the first Bad News Bears movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and (ahem) Debbie Does Dallas.
Here's another site, Former Child Star Central, that keeps track of all the kid stars of the past 50 plus years.
