40% of The Breakfast Club are New Englanders?
Yes! 2 out of 5 of the cast were born in New England States. I've eliminated Emilio Estevez from this picture to give you a better chance at guessing who ahh the two that don't pronounce theyah ahhs.
Judd Nelson - Born In Portland, Maine
The only criteria I used for this is their birth places according to Wikipedia. I was watching The Breakfast Club this past weekend and couldn't believe that Mr. Nelson is a Mainah!?
Born in 1959, he was closer to 30 than 17 when the movie premiered. Although it's not difficult to imagine John Bender staying back 7 or 8 years due to accrued detention time.
Anthony Michael Hall Born in West Roxbury, MA
I was a bit disappointed to discover this. Not because I'm not a fan of his. I loved him in all the John Hughes movies and his work in 'The Dead Zone' (one of my all time favorite Stephen King novels) was outstanding.
It's just that I know he's an avowed Yankees fan. And that is something that I just CANNOT and WILL NOT forget about. <-- Simple Minds Don't You Forget About Me joke
