Don Johnson or Glenn Frey, who has more intimate Phillip Michael Thomas photos?
Recently been watching some episodes of the amazing show of the 1980's, "Miami Vice", one of the most fascinating shows ever. Sure the show had plenty of style, great music, clothes, flash, blah blah, but it also had tremendous substance, wonderfully delving into the mind and pyschie of undercover detectives, dealing in a very dangerous world, and also the temptations thy deal with in the bad guys world. You can see all these things in the excellent actors, Don Johnson, and Phillip Michael Thomas, and Edward James Almos, and what they are struggling with. Don Johnson's character, Detective Crockett, gets so involved in the cases, that he sometimes goes over the edge, and you can see his struggle's with life, women, and living a dangerous life. All the actors were amazing in this show, and also many great guest staring parts in the beginning of their careers, including Liam Neesum, Bruce Willis, Dad Hedeya, Julia Roberts, John Leguziamo, Dennis Farina, and so many more. The show takes you to the dark place ...
ask her to pin a poster of Phillip Michael Thomas above the headboard and pray before you start.
So I'm watching Miami Vice (don't ask me why) but I'm tickled at how bad the acting was between Don Johnson & Phillip Michael Thomas.

Helpful tips in finding hidden blaxploitation gems: 1) Go to imdb.com and search the filmography of blaxploitation actors. 2) Check movies they played in from 1968 to the 1990. 3) If they are 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in role significance, then read the plot of the movie (i.e. racism, militant, the word "Black" in an adjective usage). 4) If the movie explicitly depicts the Black actor in a exploitative role, then more than likely the movie is blaxploitation. Of course there are other factors that goes into deeming movies as blaxploitation, but these tips generally takes you in the right direction. This is how I was able to find the 3 recent films I posted earlier of Lou Gossett Jr. and Phillip Michael Thomas. Surprisingly to my knowledge, Phillip Michael Thomas starred in more blaxploitation movies than I thought. Its very interesting and educating in searching for films.
Even more fun to watch Phillip Michael Thomas's "Just the Way I Planned It" and pretend you're him:

OMG Fact Of The Day : Trey Parker and Matt Stone only need an Oscar to complete their EGOT! An EGOT is a term coined by actor Phillip Michael Thomas referring to someone who wins all four major show business awards, an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. Someone who completes an EGOT is also said to win the grand slam of show business. Only eleven people have won all four major American entertainment awards. The term EGOT has only been made somewhat known and popular as it has been referenced in the TV show 30 Rock several times. Of the eleven who’ve accomplished the EGOT, Whoopi Goldberg, Mel Brooks, and Audrey Hepburn are the most well known. Honorary EGOT members include Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand. Of all the talented people in show business, you wouldn’t guess that Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, is one award away from accomplishing the EGOT. It isn’t that they aren’t talented, but an EGOT comes with a elegance or prestige that their work doesn’t necessarily showca ...

Watching old tv shows is funny sometimes because I loved the show when it was new but now I'm watching Miami Vice and the script and acting is so bad. That show was definitely about looking at Phillip Michael Thomas and Don Johnson
This is not a roast, but what is up with Elvin and his half-assed Phillip Michael Thomas hairdo. I know the 80s was a time of unique styles, but darn, dude, that's jacked up. Just sayin'..

Fans of the late Whitney Houston have less than 24 hours to wait for the nationwide release of her final movie, Sparkle, starring Jordin Sparks and Derek Luke. Sparkle is loosely based on the 1976 film starring Irene Cara and Phillip Michael Thomas, about a 1960s girl group loosely based on the Supr...
They are really prompting the. Movie sparkle I hope its not because of whitney, because the original movie sparkle is the bomb with fione azz can be Columbus's own East high school graduate Phillip Michael Thomas!!! They better bring it some times it's just best to leave well enough alone, we'll see.the original movie sound track is still worth listening to!
I wonder if Phillip Michael Thomas still got his butters
Saw and I loved it! Derek Luke made me forget about Phillip Michael Thomas. Whodathunkit!?! Lol Great movie!
Realize SPARKLE is a remake, so Imma check out the original movie w/ Irene Cara, Lonette McKee & Phillip Michael Thomas!
Derek Luke is cute, but he is no Phillip Michael Thomas.
I had to watch the original version again. Love Lonette McKie and Irene Cara. Shoo, even Phillip Michael Thomas. Lol

"Sista was fine." Still wasn't pretty as Phillip Michael Thomas tho. *swoon*
I've never been able to take Phillip Michael Thomas seriously. The smoother he tries to be the more I laugh :-)
Tonight I saw "Sparkle" it was alright. I didn't like how they changed the movie around a little. Jordan Sparks can really sing. Whitney was ok. But considering she was making a come back she did ok. "I will always love Whitney" but of course I love the original movie better with Irene Cara & wooo that Phillip Michael Thomas. If u haven't seen the original check it out after u see this one. This is just my personal opinion.
So, I decided to go late last night and see Sparkle. I don't like opening weekends of a BIG movie because there are way too many people in the theatre, you don't get a good seat if you're not early, and most people have way too many comments and I really wanted to see the film. Anywho, I went to the midnight showing and was ready to see the movie I remembered and loved w/ Irene Cara and Phillip Michael Thomas. Honestly, this was not Sparkle. The only thing that was the same were the names of the characters (although in the original Sparkle "sister" never had a real name) and the songs that the sisters sang. Everything, and I mean e'erthang was different. It was a good movie but I wish they would have called it something else. It was not Sparkle. Jordin Sparks did a phenomenal job and everytime I saw Whitney on screen I wanted to cry. It would have been better if they called the movie "The Sisters" because calling it Sparkle for me (who has seen the original about 100 times) was slightly misleading.
Phillip Michael Thomas blown he's not getting a Sparkle check…
How you gonna have Derek Luke Darkskin *** Play Stix on Sparkle Remake tho when Phillip Michael Thomas was Lightskin dosent make sense.
Irene Cara & Phillip Michael Thomas in the original Sparkle.
Oh, I'm going to see this movie. I have the Original on VHS, with Lonette M, Phillip Michael Thomas, Irene Cara...
So torn about going to see Sparkle. I simply adored the original with Phillip Michael Thomas and Irene Cara. We even started calling my eldest sister Katrina Gray Thomas "Sister" after the Oldest sister in that movie...
Yes. They're remaking everything now. The original was with Irene Cara and Phillip Michael Thomas. Classic movie. I loved it!
Today is the day! "Sparkle," starring Whitney Houston, Jordin Sparks, Derek Luke Mike Epps and more is in theaters! How will it compare to the original with Phillip Michael Thomas & Irene Cara?
Nothing could be better than Phillip Michael Thomas...non-pretty boys never had a chance wit me after I saw that movie..lol

Sorry y'all my Sparkle Dvd has Phillip Michael Thomas and Irene Cara in it!!But if you want I'm giving it away.lol.
I know I'm getting old because I actually saw the first movie "Sparkle" when it came out in 1976. I was living in New York at the time and I loved the movie. Starring "Irene Cara" and "Phillip Michael Thomas." Hope the new "Sparkle" will be as much a success as the old one. God has brought me this far!
Last year I was at a house party and was introduced to Phillip Michael Thomas (he lives in Orlando). My friend who introduced us was like: "Natalie, I want you to meet." I cut him off and said (excitedly)..."Stix!" Phillip Michael Thomas laughed and said that most people recognizes him as Tubbs from the TV show Miami Vice but black women always know him as Stix from the movie SPARKLE. I can't wait for friday to come to see the remake. Jordan Sparks will be fine as Sparkle but I'm not sure if this new girl can do justice to the real star of the movie SISTA.
I've been watching all those episodes of Miami Vice on Netflicks that I missed when I was doing extended Happy Hour on Friday nights! Just about every black actor currently on television did a bit role on that show! what ever happened to Phillip Michael Thomas?
I don't understand how Phillip Michael Thomas had no work after Miami Vice his acting is superb!
I know many of yall are ready to bumrush the movie theater on August 17 to see "Sparkle" because of Whitney Houston's last appearance on film. However, we already know the film is going to focus on biracial actresses Jordin Sparks as Sparkle and Carmen Ejogo as Sister like the original did with Irene Cara as Sparkle and Lonette McKee as Sister. I hate to bust yall bubble but Tika Sumpter is not going to be featured that much as Dolores. Her predecessor, actress Dwan Smith, was not given the same red carpet when she played Dolores in the 1976 version. Dolores had no love interest while Sparkle and Sister were pursued by dark-and-brown skinned Black men played by Dorian Harewood (Levi), Phillip Michael Thomas (Stix), and Tony King (Satin). In this new version, Derek Luke is Stix, Omari Hardwick is Levi, and Mike Epps is Satin and their main interests are Jordin and Carmen, not Tika! I am going to see it but I know the subliminal message in these films.
Follow me I follow back. ..Yes even you Phillip Michael Thomas.

Derek Luke, sir, you are no Phillip Michael Thomas.
Not sure how many saw the 1976 Sparkle with Phillip Michael Thomas and Irene Cara, but I loved that movie. Not sure if this new one with Whitney Houston can beat that. It was and us a classic.

Now that I think about it, I think Phillip Michael Thomas is dead. He died in the explosion that pineappled Edward James Olmos' grill.
Is Phillip Michael Thomas dead? If he is he's rolling over in his grave.
I have been watching the trailor of Sparkle and the story has changed from the original version! The ORIGINAL is the BEST! They should have stayed with the original story line and made it mordern of today's time! For the youngsters, please watch the original movie "Sparkle" with Irene Cara (Sparkle) , Lonette McKee (Sister), Dwan Smith (Delores), Mary Alice (MOM - Effie), Phillip Michael Thomas (Stix) and Dorian Harewood (Levi) and Many More!
This weekend, I was sweeping my front porch and at that very moment, I thought, "Oh my God! I've become my mother!" This morning, I found out one of my coworkers has no idea who Don Johnson is! As a person who grew up with a Phillip Michael Thomas poster hanging on her bedroom wall, I'm appalled and now it seems, officially old.
Don Johnson is trending. I had a HUGE crush on him and Phillip Michael Thomas during their Miami Vice heyday. They were HOT!
