What do John Travolta, Josh Holloway and Thomas McDonell have in common?

Big hint: It’s the same thing that Danny Zuko, Charles “Sawyer” Ford and Jesse Richter share with each other.

You’ve got it. They all play bad boys in the movies.

The new bad boy hitting the big screen April 29 in Disney’s new movie, “Prom,” goes by the name of Jesse Richter. Apparently, it’s an aptly chosen name for this dark-haired, long-locked guy who, despite being largely unknown in 2010, goes off the seismic Richter scale in the movie trailers alone.

Arriving on the scene via motorcycle and dressed in a zippered black leather jacket, Jesse’s trouble with school administration begins almost before movie-goers reach for the second hand of popcorn. Undaunted, or at least putting up a good front, Jesse cracks a joke while brushing back his dark tresses in a devil-may-care attitude.

Jesse has little use for socializing and typical high school camaraderie. His chain-mail coat, obviously a defense for underlying issues, immediately establishes him as foil for any prom queen, king or other high school prep gracing the hallowed halls of Brookside High.

Jesse’s character brings back fond memories, and perhaps a glimpse of what might lie in store for dozens of young girls, of what is felt like to fall under the spell of “Lost’s” Sawyer. Played by actor Josh Holloway, Sawyer kept inner turmoil hidden away from the rest of the plane crash survivors. His bad boy push-me, pull-me antics, quirky smile and devastating good lucks captured the hearts of older girls. By now gals across the country are missing that bad boy they love to hate. Perhaps Jesse will fill more than one of those voids.

Of course, the bad boy who survives the test of time and becomes a cult classic, like the proverbial Leroy Brown, is the baddest bad boy of all. No one sings the bad boy blues quite like fictional Rydell High School’s Danny Zuko, played by actor/singer John Travolta in the 1959 movie musical “Grease.” Everybody loves Danny, whether from a 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s or 2000s childhood, and the decades are sure to produce a similar vibe.

Modern hearts are fickle, and with a little scrunching over in the front seat of a 1950s Chevy, a tattered seat from a crashed jet plane or on a motorcycle seat, there’s always room for a new and drop-dead gorgeous guy, but only if he’s bad enough.

Jesse Richter looks bad enough. Only time can tell whether he makes the ‘A’ list of top movie bad guys or not.

One thing is for sure: when moms and grandmothers, dads and granddads talk about their own proms, they remember certain characters and associations when it comes to prom stories. Most of the time, they get it right.
