Andrew McCarthy reveals he’s working on a Brat Pack doc

Last year, Andrew McCarthy released his memoir Brat: An ’80s Story. This year, he is working on a documentary about his friends who were in the Brat Pack with him, inspired by the novel.

The actor revealed that one of the Brats he will be interviewing is Rob Lowe, with whom he co-starred in St. Elmo’s Fire.

The Pretty in Pink heartthrob did not say who else would be part of it, but I am assuming it will also include Molly Ringwald, Demi Moore, Jon Cryer, Anthony Michael Hall, and Judd Nelson, to name a few.

Since it is one of the Packers that is making it, I cannot wait to see it when it comes out next year.

Who is your favorite member of the Pack? I have too many to name, including the man behind this post.


Andrew McCarthy and Demi Moore have a mini-St. Elmo’s Fire reunion

Back in 1985, a movie came out called St. Elmo’s Fire, and it is said to be the movie that launched the Brat Pack. It starred Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, Ally Sheedy, Mare Winningham, Judd Nelson, and Emilio Estevez. Every teenager in the ’80s wanted their 20s to be like the characters in that movie.

That was then. The movie never got a sequel, so we were left to imagine what would happen to those friends when they were in the 50s. Over the weekend, we got to see that Jules and Kevin would still be hanging out in the year 2022.

So why did Andrew McCarthy and Demi Moore reunite? The actor wrote, “Great talking with my old friend Demi Moore today for my Brat Pack documentary!” Now, I want to know all about that doc that he is making and who is going to be in it. If the documentary is as good as his autobiography, Brat, it is going to be even better than St. Elmo’s Fire.

Now, let’s talk about how incredible the two 59-year-olds look. They look even better now than they did then.


Andrew McCarthy reads a sexy excerpt from his memoir
May 24th, 2021 under Andrew McCarthy. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, Andrew McCarthy was a member of the Brat Pack because he starred in Pretty In Pink and St. Elmo’s Fire. Those were just two of the many films he made in that decade that we are still talking about.

In those movies, the unlikely sex symbol had a lot of kissing scenes. Something he didn’t always feel comfortable with, something he details in his memoir Brat: An ’80s Story that is out now.

In order to convince us to read his book (like we need convincing), he has been reading excerpts from the book about his life on Facebook. Over the weekend, he narrated what happened during his sex scene with Ally Sheedy in St. Elmo’s Fire.

At that moment, McCarthy finally confesses his love for Sheedy, and director Joel Schumaker wanted it done a certain way. “Joel instructed us to make love in ferocious passion on the coffin that served as a coffee table in the living area on the set,” McCarthy read. The two actors thought they were giving him what he wanted, but it was not enough. That caused the director to yell at them, “MORE F*CKING!”

Did it work? To see then scene, the click here!


BTWF: Andrew McCarthy for Burger King

Before Andrew McCarthy was in love with a Mannequin at the department store he worked at, he was a Pepsi employee who was in love with Elisabeth Shue, who worked at Burger King. How sweet was the 20-year-old in that 1983 commercial?


John Hughes didn’t want Andrew McCarthy in Pretty In Pink

Andrew McCarthy has a new memoir out called Brat: An ’80s Story. In the autobiography, he talks about his time in the ’80s when he was a member of the Brat Pack. Therefore, there are a lot of backstories about the films he made, like Class, St. Elmo’s Fire, Weekend at Bernie’s, and Pretty In Pink. It was the last movie that made us fall in love with him.

Today, when he was on The Talk, he talked about how that almost didn’t happen. When he auditioned for the role, John Hughes was looking for an athletic type to play Blane. Therefore, he was unimpressed by the actor.

While the legendary voice of teens was not interested, Molly Ringwald was. She told Hughes, “That’s the guy,” because “he is dreamy, he is poetic.”

Thankfully for all of us, Hughes listened to his red-headed muse. She was right. It was his preppiness that won us over. I don’t think a football player would have had the same effect. I mean, what teenage girl didn’t fall in love with McCarthy, James Spader, and Jon Cryer after watching this coming of age film?

On the latter person, I do wish Hughes didn’t listen to Ringwald when she told him that Andy should wind up Blane over Duckie because of his lip size. As much as I liked Blane, I was rooting for the nerd to get his girl. However, if I was Andy, I would have gone for all three men because there was no way I could have picked just one.

Anyways back to McCarthy, pick up his book now to learn more stories like this one. I can’t wait to read what he says about Mannequin. That movie still holds up. Actually, all of his films from the era do. I don’t care what his kids say about them.
