Jennifer Grey (Jeannie)

Ferris' resentful older sister Jeannie became a star after her role in "Dirty Dancing" one year after "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."

The actress, 55, was involved in a major accident with then-boyfriend Matthew Broderick in Ireland. Broderick, who was driving, collided with a local mother and daughter, killing them instantly. Grey has said the aftermath of the event caused her to withdraw from her career.

Jeffrey Jones (Principal Rooney)

Before he played the principal frantically determined to catch Bueller in the act, Jones was a successful Broadway actor alongside Sigourney Weaver, Meryl Streep and more. After "Bueller," he appeared in another cult classic "Beetlejuice."

In 2003, Rooney was arrested for possession of child pornography and accused of soliciting a 14-year-old boy to pose for photographs. He was subsequently asked to register as a sex offender.

Ben Stein (Economics teacher)

Did you know the man behind the famous "Bueller ... Bueller ... Bueller?" line is an actual economist? Before hitting Hollywood, Stein wrote for many publications, including The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. He then pursued a political career as Nixon's speechwriter. 

Today, Stein, 70, frequently appears on news programs to offer his expertise and was involved in a scandal in 2011 when IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested for sexual assault and attempted rape. Stein published a controversial editorial questioning the accuser's credibility.
