Though Philadelphia native Kevin Bacon had previously appeared in '"Diner" and "Animal House," he wasn't a household name until 1984 when we won his first starring role as Ren McCormack in "Footloose." Despite his newfound stardom, Kevin avoided the limelight, opting to stay in New York to focus on his stage career rather than relocate to Los Angeles to bring "Animal House" to the small screen. While co-starring in off-Broadway play "Album," he met actress Tracy Pollan -- future wife of Michael J. Fox. Over the next five years, Kevin and Tracy played house in Manhattan and on a Connecticut ranch. Meanwhile, a young actress named Kyra Sedgwick was cutting her chops on television.
