John Travolta

The rollercoaster career of Hollywood star John Travolta decisively discredited the old adage that there are no second acts. The New Jersey native first gained fame as a suave, dim-witted Brooklyn high school student on the sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter. Being in the right place in the right era, he became inextricably linked to pop culture trends, thanks to sensational starring roles in the disco drama Saturday Night Fever and the 1950s retro musical, Grease.
