“The Breakfast Club” recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. For those of you who don’t know anything about the film, it is considered one of the best teen movies of all time. It is the stuff that movie legends are made of. Five students who come from really different cliques are forced to spend a Saturday afternoon together in detention and slowly, over the course the day, become friends. If you haven’t seen this movie, you need to see it pronto. For those of you who are fans of film, come with us as we find out what the cast has been up to!
Emilio Estevez rose to fame during the ‘80s. He was a member of the Brat Pack, a group of young actors that included Demi Moore, Rob Lowe and Andrew McCarthy. He became a legitimate star following the release of “The Breakfast Club.” He played Andrew, a high school jock who has trouble thinking for himself.
Unlike many other members of the Brat Pack, Estevez enjoyed continued success during the ‘90s thanks to his involvement in “The Mighty Ducks” franchise. In the early 2000s, he took a step back from acting and began spending more time behind the camera. In recent years, he has mostly worked as a director, directing television shows like “Cold Case,” “CSI: NY” and “Close to Home.” In addition, he also wrote, directed and produced the film “Bobby,” which starred an ensemble cast that included Laurence Fishburne, Anthony Hopkins and Lindsay Lohan. Producing the film nearly bankrupted him because it didn’t make enough at the box office to cover production costs.
