The young star of the 1980 cult film He-Man movie Masters of the Universe looks unrecognizable after 25 years.
Robert Duncan McNeil, now 57, rose to fame when he played Kevin Corrigan’s disheveled hair-explosive character in the 1987 superhero film.
McNeil made his debut at the age of 22 in the He-Man movie Masters of the Universe, in which he played the role of teenage high schooler Kevin Corrigan.
In the film, Courteney Cox, played by his character and his girlfriend, goes on to find friends, actually inventing a device that is “cosmic key”.
He-Man and his friends have mistaken it after using it to open a portal to Earth while fleeing the wizards of Grayscale.
Kevin, thinking it’s a composer, starts pushing buttons, unconsciously sending the signal to Skeleton’s second-in-command Evil-Lynn, who prepares a small squad of mercenaries to retrieve it.
The drama unfolds as He-Man finally comes to the rescue.
The film was banned by critics and it went down at the box office.
But now some consider it a classic cult film.
Twenty-five years later and McNeil looks almost unrecognizable.
Perhaps this is not surprising because he is not 22 years old from the previous day, instead he is now the father of three children aged 57 years.
McNeil, however, continued his career in acting.
His scientific role in Masters of the Universe prepared him for the role of Chief Helmsman Tom Paris in Star Trek: Voyager.
After this, he embarked on a new and successful career as a director.
He also directed the Disney TV version of the television series Chuck, Resident Alien, The Gifted, and the Turner & Hooch film, among many other shows.
