How many actors get to play not one but THREE iconic roles in one decade? Not many. John Travolta did just that by playing Vinny Barbarino (Welcome Back Kotter), Tony Manero (Saturday Night Fever), and Danny Zuko (Grease) all in the 1970's. On TV's Welcome Back Kotter he played Vinny, the leader of a gang called the Sweat Hogs who kept their wise-cracking teacher on his toes. In Saturday Night Fever he played Tony, the disco king who wanted to turn his overnight sensation into a legitimate career. In Grease, he played Danny, a bad boy who falls in love with the good girl over the course of the summer. In all three roles, he was so very sexy! John was able to make a great comebacks in the 80's with Urban Cowboy and again in the 90's with Pulp Fiction. Too bad for John the newer generation will be stuck with a less cooler image of him looking like this. Nice going John (haha).
