John Travolta an artist, iconic actor, singer, dance and producer will turn 65 on Feb 18. However, he has celebrated this achievement year by out of nowhere rocking a shaved head which is great look for him, we will celebrate it by reflecting upon his greatest appearance on television and in film, Furthermore, being a diverse actor whose profession has spread over nearly five decades, there is no defiency of these.
The following are John Travolta's one of the best iconic roles who inspired him to act.
Vinnie Barbarino - 'Welcome Back, Kotter' (1975-1979)
John Travolta, actually the son of an actress knew from a young age that he wanted to act, SO he dropped out of his high school in New Jersey and moved to New York City in order to start his career. Incidentally his breakout job was a high school on the hit ABC sitcom “Welcome Back, Kotter”. Obviously It's stretch to call Vinnie Barbarino a student. Certainly, the cocky Italian American went to Brooklyn's James Buchanan High, however he was more focused around being the unofficial official leader of the Sweat hogs and purchasing young ladies than he was with gaining anything from Mista Kah Terr.
Billy Nolan - 'Carrie' (1976)
Like Vinnie Barbarino, Billy Nolan of Carrie is likewise the student of high school, however he isn't close to as interesting as the previous. All thing being equal, Billy is trouble maker who leads the prank pulled on Carrie (Sissy Spacek) and even attempts to run her over in a vehicle at a certain point, but all thing considered, things don't end well for Travolta’s little sleaze ball. Even though the actor played meathead, the actor still managed stole some scene and demonstrate his range.
Tony Manero - 'Saturday Night Fever' (1977)
Sincerely, Saturday Night Fever is one of our all-time favorite films. It seamlessly incorporates scenes of both and humor, as well as impressive dance sequences and disco sound track with some of the genre's best songs. Tony Manero, a Brooklyn kid who is a no body on the street but a god on the dance floor, is such an iconic role.
Edna Turnblad - Hairspray (2007)
Almost after decades from the genre, Travolta made a welcome return to musical theater in the 2007 film adaption of John Waters ‘Hairspray'.
Travolta got to play as Edna Turnblad, for the first time in his long and illustrations career. Quite the challenge! The main character of the story revolves around Edna's daughter played by Tracy (Nikki Bloncky). Tracy is a young lady who changes people's perceptions of beauty after getting a spot on a local dance show on TV. Travolta earned a Golden Globe gesture for his performance.
Tony Shapiro - American Crime Story (2016)
Following 10 years’ sans a nomination, Travolta procured his latest Golden Globe nod for his transcending and transformative turn as protection lawyer Tony Sharpiro in the magnificent American Crime Story -The People v. O.J. Simpson.
