Remember Arsenio Hall? 

Many say he has made a "comeback" as the winner of the most recent season of Celebrity Apprentice. 

Although if you look at his Wikipedia page you'll see that between the years of 1981 to current there wasn't even one year that he didn't work on a film or TV show. This is the case with many actors. They don't go away, they just aren't as prominent for a time. Often times they're writing scripts and making more money or as much money than they did as actors. This is especially true with comedians.
Those of you who remember Arsenio's "Woof Woof" shout he gave out during his show will find it amusing that it made it into so many films such as "Pretty Woman", "Aladdin", and "Passenger 57" in the scene where Wesley Snipes character is mistaken for Arsenio Hall. 

By far my favorite role of Arsenio's was his performance in "Coming to America" with Eddie Murphy.  A true comedy classic! The scenes in the Barber Shop...they never get old!

Arsenio was one of the judges for Miss USA last month, but I didn't have the chance to meet or work with him at dress rehearsal.

Arsenio Hall's new syndicated late-night talk show premieres in the 
Fall of 2013 on Tribune and CBS syndicated TV stations.
