It only took three decades, but Ponyboy has finally come full circle when it comes to A-list movies. Though he started strong as one of the flying bike dudes in "E.T.", and drew rave reviews playing himself in "The Outsiders," he was quickly relegated to the B-list and beyond after some woeful career choices involving the donning of black face makeup and a romantic comedy with bowel cleansing yogurt spokeswoman Jamie Lee Curtis. Either one of those could have seriously killed the employment opportunities of an aspiring young actor right there, but like the pesky Wolverine he played in "Red Dawn," Ponyboy has fought through the war torn trenches of movie turd obscurity to make it back in this summer's "The Amazing Spider-Man." GPS was so completely stunned when witnessing Ponyboy's return to films that people actually watch, we had to double check to make sure it was really him.
E.T. to Jamie Lee, Pony's stock was relatively high in the 80's
but that stock plummeted after donning black-face for "Soul Man" in a pre-"Tropic Thunder" America where black face is only accepted when it's Robert Downey Jr.
After a thorough search on imdb.com, our sneaking suspicion that Ponyboy was indeed acting in an A-list movie was proven to be true. Resident Ponyboy expert MarkusWelby was so delighted that he captured a screenshot of "The Amazing Spider-Man" cast list and did a shitty MS paint job recreating the moment in the theater that confirmed his favorite greaser was still gold.

Even after concrete confirmation, GPS was still not satisfied so we decided to reach out to the soc-hater himself for comment. "This is just the beginning of what I hope to be an AMAZING comeback......hehe....see what I did there," Pony said giddily. We couldn't let him go without asking him what it was like to make out with Jamie Lee Curtis in 84's "Grandview U.S.A." "I made sure to not eat anything on those days I knew I'd have my tongue down her throat. I try not to think too much about that time in my life anymore because I'm back to the A-list now and she's literally on the shit-list!"
Ponyboy: currently A-list
JLC: currently helps you shit list
Hopefully "The Amazing-Spider-Man" is just the beginning of great things to come for Ponyboy, and we at GPS wish him nothing but great success as he continues to try and stay gold at the box office.
