In 1987, 20th Century Fox released "Less Than Zero," a film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' innovative novel of the same name. The movie, which celebrated wealthy, over-the-top L.A. youth culture, starred much-loved '80s celebrities, including Andrew McCarthy, Robert Downey Jr., and James Spader.
Downey Jr, pictured above at Stagedoor Manor drama summer camp in 1976, is generally considered the most successful of the bunch. His career took off after his celebrated performance in "Less Than Zero," leading him to roles in films such as "Chaplin," "Bowfinger," and more recently, "Sherlock Holmes," "Iron Man," and "The Avengers."
