When you think of the best movies of the 80’s, you probably think of movies like Pretty In Pink, The Breakfast Club, Dirty Dancing and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. To sate your curiosity and ours, we’re following up with the casts of these three wonderful movies to see where they are now.

To kick off our list, let’s take a look at the main cast of the movie Pretty In Pink. Molly Ringwald stars in the movie as Andie and has since gone on to great things. She has done a television role in The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, has written two books and has most recently recorded a jazz album called Except Sometimes.

Jon Cryer has been a more visible actor since his Brat Pack days. He currently stars as Dr. Alan Harper in the television show Two And A Half Men. Duckie’s making the big bucks now on the small screen, no?
