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.

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.

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.

Judd Nelson

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