Val Kilmer was a big star back in the '80s and early '90s. Although to the surprise of many he has seemingly never taken a break from doing movies. As he has been in a movie virtually every year since the '80s, he is certainly not as popular today as he was back in the prime of his career. At 60 years old he is not as well kept as other actors his age and this may have something to do with his lack of major roles. There is always one thing you can do though, to get back into the spotlight. That is, release a book about your life!
