Ten most fantastic film worlds of Dennis Quaid
New York City in the grip of an instant ice age
If you prefer your end-times scenarios based in science (fiction) rather than the Bible, Quaid has you covered there too. In The Day After Tomorrow he plays a scientist who navigates an instant Ice Age caused by super-storms that freeze everything in their path. New York City is ground zero for this climatological clusterfuck, and Quaid's son is stuck there, so off he goes to save the day. As a bonus, Quaid's son is played by Jake Gyllenhaal, who stands a decent shot at becoming this generation's answer to Quaid. It's a regular passing of the torch!
