If you grew up in the 80s, you certainly remember "Eddie and The Cruisers." It tells, "the story of a television newswoman who picks up the story of a 1960s rock band whose long-lost leader Eddie Wilson may still be alive, while searching for the missing tapes of the band's never-released album," according to iMDb.
Pare plays singer Eddie Wilson. A lot of the movie was filmed in Blackwood, Somers Point (at Tony Mart's), and Ocean City.
Michael Pare also starred alongside Diane Lane and Willem Dafoe in 1984's "Streets of Fire," and later in "Hope Floats" with Sandra Bullock.
