Hello and welcome to The Brat Pack Site. Here you will find news and information on the group of actors that became famous in the 80's and were known as 'The Brat Pack'. The Brat Pack consisted of eight actors, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy.
They appeared in many films including The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink and St Elmos Fire. A lot of the films they were in were either written, directed, produced, or all three, by John Hughes. Since then the actors have had mixed fortunes regarding their careers but have all continued to work in the industry. You can find out what they are up to now by clicking on the 'Brat Pack' button above.
The name "Brat Pack" came from a 1985 cover story in New York magazine by David Blum (June 10, 1985, pp. 40-47). The term is a play on the Rat Pack.
The article also mentioned Mathew Broderick, John Cusack, Robert Downey Jr and even Tom Cruise. The actors I have included on the site though are the ones most widely considered Brat Pack members.
Along with the redesign, the site now has some new parts to it! a Maybe Movies section as well as new actors added to the Possibly Pack page.
