Playing Where Is the Cast of 'The Breakfast Club' Now?

It’s been more than 30 years since “The Breakfast Club” hit the big screen. 

The movie, which follows five high school students from different walks of life who end up together in Saturday detention, starred several members of the so-called "Brat Pack": Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez and Anthony Michael Hall. 

The 1985 film, directed by John Hughes, is now streaming on Netflix, and InsideEdition.com is catching up with the cast.

Molly Ringwald

Ringwald was just 16 when she starred in the popular film. She went on to star in another John Hughes film, "Pretty in Pink," just a year after “The Breakfast Club" and was a prominent leading lady throughout the 80s.

She has most recently starred in TV shows like "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" and "Riverdale."

She will next appear in the film "Kingfish," which is currently in post-production.

Ally Sheedy 

Sheedy was 22 when she appeared in "The Breakfast Club" as Allison Reynolds, the “basket case” of the bunch. That same year, she starred with other members of the "Brat Pack," like Demi Moore, Rob Lowe and Estevez, in "St. Elmo’s Fire." 

She went on to become a familiar face of the 80s, appearing in such films as "War Games" and "Short Circuit."  

She last graced the silver screen in 2016's "X-Men: Apocalypse."

Emilio Estevez 

Estevez played the jock of the detention crew in "The Breakfast Club." He also appeared alongside Sheedy in "St. Elmo’s Fire." 

The older sibling of Charlie Sheen, Estevez went on to star with his brother in several movies, including "Young Guns," "Young Guns II" and "Men at Work." His success as an actor continued into the 90s, including the role of peewee hockey coach Gordon Bombay in 'The Mighty Ducks" films.

More recently, he has taken dual roles as an actor and a director in such films as "The Way," (which also stars his father, Martin Sheen) and 2018's "The Public."

He also owns a winery in California, which he opened in 2014.

Judd Nelson

Nelson, who played bad boy John Bender in "The Breakfast Club," has 118 acting credits to his name, according to IMDB. He later joined the cast of "St. Elmo’s Fire" and voiced Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime in "Transformers: The Movie," in 1986.

He recently appeared as Billy Beretti in the hit Fox TV series "Empire" and has six upcoming projects in the works.

Anthony Michael Hall 

Hall, who played nerd Brian Johnson in “The Breakfast Club," was one of the decade's most hard-working actors. Having already starred in "Sixteen Candles" and "National Lampoon's Vacation," he teamed up with Hughes again in 1985's "Weird Science." 

He later took his acting chops to "Saturday Night Live" for several seasons.

Hall also had notable roles in "The Dark Knight," "War Machine" and the USA TV series “Psych."
