After appearing in Skatetown USA, Lang went on to play in the horror movie, Evilspeak, in 1981, then landed such TV series as The Powers of Matthew Star, Riptide, Happy Days, The Fall Guy and Magnum P.I. before joining Bold and Beautiful as Brooke in 1987, where her character also crossed over to sister soap, The Young and the Restless.
Skatetown USA will be available on Blu-Ray starting Saturday August 24. Mark your calendars and be sure to pick up a copy!
