BTWF roles: Anthony Michael Hall in Six Pack
June 14th, 2017 under Before They Were Famous, Brat Pack. [ Comments: none ]


Before Anthony Michael Hall was part of the Griswold family in Vacation, he was an orphan in Six Pack. How cute was the 13 year old in that 1982 movie?

Which film does Anthony Michael Hall wish he could delete from his resume?
June 14th, 2017 under Andy Cohen, Brat Pack. [ Comments: none ]


Anthony Michael Hall was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and a caller wanted to know which movie or television has he done does he wish he could delete from his career. At first he said, “Oh, I got a bunch.” Then he settled on a movie called A Gnome Named Gnorm. After watching the trailer for the 1990 movie, I do not know what he is talking about. I think it is looks like the best film in his career, even ahead of Sixteen Candles and Weird Science.

What do you think of the trailer of A Gnome Named Gnorm?

UPDATE: Anthony Michael also played Plead the Fifth, and he revealed which Brat Packer got the most action. Believe it or not, it is not Rob Lowe. To hear that answer, then click here!

Andrew McCarthy just made us feel really old!
March 27th, 2017 under Brat Pack. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1986, Andrew McCarthy and Molly Ringwald starred in Pretty in Pink together. Now, over 30 years later, Blane’s real life son is playing Andie’s son in the Netflix movie The Kissing Booth.

McCarthy told Kelly Ripa on Live with Kelly that Sam is making his feature debut in this flick with his former big screen fling. Yesterday, the proud pop got an email from his fictional prom date that reads, “Your son just walked away in a scene and it was just like you. My mind is freaking out.”

Our minds are like totally freaking out too. How freaky deaky is it that he is old enough to have a son how is old enough to act and that son is playing his onscreen girlfriend’s child. The Brat Pack are not supposed to be that old to have kids old enough to act, but they are. Which means I am old and now i am really feeling it.

Can’t we just go back to the days when the only thing we thought about when it came to gossip behind the scenes of Pretty in Pink is if it is true that Ringwald chose not kiss Duckie (Jon Cryer) and that is why we got the ending we got. This new development is just too much for me too handle. Shady Pines!

Jennifer Beals says she turned down Pretty In Pink!
March 6th, 2017 under Andy Cohen, Brat Pack. [ Comments: none ]


Say what you want about Molly Ringwald, but she made Pretty In Pink what it is. I could not imagine anyone else but her in the lead role, can you?

Well, Jennifer Beals told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she was offered the part of Andie. She said, “Frankly I am really glad that I didn’t take it because Molly Ringwald is so fantastic in the movie.” Then the Bravo host asked her why she didn’t take it, she told him, “The funny thing about Flashdance I wasn’t in school, the character is not in school, so you are not an age. And I thought if I play somebody who is in high school, then all of sudden I’m back there. And also I was going to college.”

Did she make the right choice? For herself, no. For us, yes. I mean, I can’t imagine loving the movie as much as I do with her in the lead role. I cannot see her being a good match with Jon Cryer, Andrew McCarthy, James Spader and Annie Potts. To me, Beals plays every role the same way. Monotone with a hint of bitch. That works for the roles she has been getting since The L Word, but would not have worked in the teen angst classic.

On that note, her next big movie after Flashdance was The Bride with Sting and it stalled her fame until The L Word came out nealry 20 years later. Yes, she continued to act, but no one really knew that she did because the Frankenstein movie was rightfully panned for being pure crap. So awful. Sting should never ever should act. But this not about him, it is about her making the right choice for us.
