Whatever happened to the cast of the 'Breakfast Club'?
The Breakfast Club (1985)

Emilio Estevez

The son of actor Martin Sheen and brother to Charlie, Estevez (he kept his father’s non-stage last name) played the oafish letterman.

He had gained fame by his roles in The Outsiders and Repo Man prior to The Breakfast Club. Since that film, he appeared in St. Elmo’s Fire, Young Guns (I & II) and The Mighty Ducks. He’s a busy TV director these days.

Molly Ringwald

Everybody’s sweetheart, Ringwald starred in Hughes’ Sixteen Candles before following up in The Club. She gave it another go as the star in Hughes’ Pretty in Pink.

Since then, she’s done lots of TV work, appeared on Broadway and released several albums, including her latest, a jazz compilation called “Except Sometimes.”

Anthony Michael Hall

The kid who burst onto the scene as Rusty Griswold in National Lampoon’s Vacation worked alongside Molly Ringwald in Hughes’ directorial debut, Sixteen Candles. He played the same role—the nerdy kid who tries so very hard to be popular—in The Breakfast Club.

Hall has not stopped working since, starring in Weird Science, Edward Scissorhands, and as a Not Ready For Prime Time Player on Saturday Night Live. He was also the lead in the TV series The Dead Zone. He’s nearly as famous for the roles he turned down: the part of “Duckie” in Pretty in Pink, Cameron in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and the lead role in Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket.

Judd Nelson

Nelson’s career highlight was when he played the bad boy in The Club.

Since then, he’s kept busy by appearing in many interesting, sometimes quirky films. He lent his voice to The Transformers and appeared alongside Brooke Shields in the TV sitcom Suddenly Susan.

Ally Sheedy

Sheedy brought her dark persona to Hughes’ frothy forays in The Breakfast Club and later in Joel Schumacher’s St. Elmo’s Fire.

She was the star of WarGames and Short Circuit, and played the German transsexual “Hedwig” in the Off Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

John Hughes

No director so defined the 1980s like Hughes. Following the success of his Sixteen Candles, Hughes kept the hits coming with The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Weird Science, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and the big daddy of them all, Home Alone.

By Serge Stevens

High school angst was the unifying subject of John Hughes' seminal 1985 coming of age film. A group of disparate high school students found themselves brought together when they served Saturday detention. There was the jock, the greaser, the good girl and the bad girl, and, of course, the nerd, all guilty of screwing up and sitting in judgment of the others. This group of talented young actors was cast together in many other films, gaining the moniker "The Brat Pack."

If they got together today, what would this club look like? Scroll through the images above and find out!
