4 Aerosmith albums

In 1976 Aerosmith was a band high school kids wouldn’t think twice about staying up all night to buy tickets to see live, and in the years since D&C‘s release they’ve been anything but silent. In addition to the front man’s stint on reality TV, there have been four studio albums–Nine Lives, Just Push Play, Honkin’ on Bobo, and Music From Another Dimension!–and one highly successful movie theme song to keep fans happy. “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing,” recorded for 1998′s Armageddon, was the band’s first No. 1 single, is still heard at weddings and in elevators around the world, and provides yet another link between Steven Tyler and Ben Affleck. (They have more in common than you think!)

While fans still hold onto Parker Posey‘s first starring role as Darla, the actress has gone on to star in other memorable films. Most notably, Posey has appeared in several Christopher Guest projects, including Waiting For Guffman, Best In Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration. And Meg Swan in Best In Show is easily her most iconic role since D&C.

At the time of the film’s initial release, Milla Jovovich was a model turned actress taking on bit roles in small flicks. Five years later, she’d make her mark in Hollywood with The Fifth Element, co-starring Bruce Willis. But it was the Resident Evil flicks where Jovovich found lasting success as the franchise’s main character Alice. In 2014, the franchise will debut the sixth film in the series starring Jovovich. However, she’s not the only D&C actor to appear in franchise films: Cole Hauser (Benny O’Donnell) has starred in two Vin Diesel franchises, Katt (Clint Bruno) has had bit roles in two different Batman series, and Posey gave horror a try with a role in Scream 3.
