Imagine John Laroquette as The Outsiders’ Ponyboy
January 25th, 2018 under Brat Pack. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1983, 8 virtual unknowns starred in a little movie called The Outsiders and all of their acting careers and lives changed forever. Today if you say Ponyboy to someone, they will immediately picture C Thomas Howell in their heads. But there was someone else who screened for the role.

Yesterday on The Librarians, John Laroquette wore a jean vest and his co-star Rebecca Romijn revealed that this was not the first time he wore it on camera. He wore it 35 years ago to audition for the cult classic, and as we know he did not get the role.

Which makes you wonder what would have happened to the two actors had the role gone to the Laroquette. Does that mean Dan Fielding would have played the Soul Man and the Soul Man would have gone to play Dan Fielding in Night Court. Imagine how different their careers would have been? I am glad it turned out the way it did because their roles are perfect just the way they are.

Matthew Broderick reveals a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off secret
December 6th, 2017 under Brat Pack, James Corden. [ Comments: none ]


When you think of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, you think of Chicago because it is a leading character in the movie. Was the whole movie filmed there? That was something that Gina Rodriguez wanted to know since she is from the windy city, so she asked him yesterday when they were both on The Late Late Show with James Corden. What did he tell her? The exteriors were shot in Illinois, but the interiors were filmed in…Los Angeles. Dang that Hollywood trickery.

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!
