ABC News posted this nice little slideshow of then and now photos of the “Breakfast Club” cast. Now this slideshow is a few years old, but is useful as photo reference. It made me want to check up on our favorite angst ridden teens. Here is a summary of what they are up to:
- Now I know that Anthony Michael Hall was in Batman and is on “The Dead Zone”.
- Ally Sheedy, who rocked War Games, was recently on Psych.
- Emilio Estevez has been directing like a madman and I am sure he is planning that next Mighty Ducks movie. Win! Win! Win!
- New Jersey’s Paul Gleason passed away in 2006. Which I thought was shocking at the time.
- Judd Nelson is acting, but a quick look at his IMDB profile, shows a lot of straight to video releases. Still work is work and I am glad to see he is still acting. What about you Dad? What about you?!
- Molly Ringwald is on “The Secret Life of the American Teenager”, which has been picked up for another season.
So besides Gleason, the club isn’t doing too bad. Let’s check back in another 25 years.
