Biggest Star Comebacks

Hit TV shows, Oscar nominations and critical buzz prove that Teri Hatcher, Matthew Fox and 10 other stars of the past are back and better than ever. By Caryn Midler


"I needed to get my life back," Keri Russell told the Copley News Service of the yearlong break she took following the 2002 demise of her TV drama Felicity. But the single 28-year-old actress (in 2005 and 1998) is back: After earning critical praise for her Off-Broadway turn in Fat Pig, Russell will appear with Kevin Costner in The Upside of Anger, opening in March, and costars in Steven Spielberg's miniseries Into the West, airing this summer.
