Footloose.  Won't even be close.
Yeah, agreed.  Although I can't even recall if I've actually seen it.  If I did, it was years and years ago.

I went with Tremors, just based on my own opinion of him.  Probably not his "signature" role but it's what I remember him most in.

Yea I've never seen footloose but I associate Kevin Bacon with that movie. That's his signature role.

Footloose really does feel like his signature role.

My favorite film he was is (of course) Animal House. 

Favorite films where he was a main character (or major supporting) would be Sleepers, Mystic River, A Few Good Men and Wild Things.

While Animal House is loaded with classic lines, it's funny to think that Bacon, who was a minor character with not a lot of lines, had two of the most long-enduring ones from the entire film.

Indeed and I would also throw in Tremors.

When I think of Kevin Bacon I think of A Few Good Men,  Probably because that is the movie I have seen the most times.  I don't think it was his signature role but that is the role I think of first.

Voted other for the JFK role. That was the first time I saw him act where I thought he truly became someone else and wasn't just acting. Minor role sure, but an absolute scene stealer. 

Also a fan of She's Having a Baby and The Big Picture. Dude can act for sure, and adds to any movie he is in.

I can't think of anything that even comes close. It has everything, it does everything, it is everything. The entirety of the human experience summed up in one hundred and seven perfect minutes.

Honestly, they should have just sent a VHS copy of it into space, instead of a bunch of Chuck Berry music.
Travolta might have pulled it off if it was a decade earlier.  Grease is better IMO but I am old.
