When you think back on the coming of age classic Sixteen Candles, you probably remember fresh-faced Molly Ringwald, seriously hunky Michael Schoeffling (yum, Jake Ryan!), or the adorable ginger Anthony Michael Hall. But what you may not recall is that one of today’s biggest movie stars also made an appearance in the 1984 pic.
Did you know that a highly-respected, Golden Globe-nominated leading man had a bit role in the movie? But which actor was it: Edward Norton, Nicolas Cage or John Cusack?
Wetpaint asked Viggle LIVE! users that very question during last weekend’s airing of Sixteen Candles, and most of your memories are clearly on point — well done!
With 79 percent of the vote, most users knew that John Cusack (nominated for the golden accolade for 2000’s High Fidelity) made one of his first on-screen appearances in the film. Only 13 percent believed that Fight Club star Edward Norton had a role in the teen flick, and a mere 8 percent guessed the man in question was Nicolas Cage.
John Cusack starred as one of Anthony Michael Hall’s (“The Geek”) friends in only his second film role. John’s sister Joan also appeared in a small part, making it their first of 10 movies they’ve done together.
