Where You At?: Michael Schoeffling

After my last post trying to find random actors (or actresses if some dude responds) Njeeeri wanted to know about Michael Schoeffling. I had to look up who this was. One because that name isn't even kind of familiar and two because she didn't just sat “Jake Ryan.” He is best known for being in 16 Candles which I didn't see until I was in my 20's. Turns out this guy was active from 1984 till 1991 and then he vanished off the face of the Earth. I could find only one recent image of him and I had to clean it up to even make him visible. And I'm still not sure it's even him! He retired from acting to provide for his new family and has been making handmade furniture ever since. Good for him. His wife is a former model and he has two children. At the age of 53 he has made it this far with no mugshots or weird how I sold porn to Long Duk Dong. True story! Who else? Oh, Principal Rooney! I sold porn to 80's icons that I wasn't aware of until too late to truly enjoy it. Let me know if there are any other folks you want me to look up.

Just watched Fun Mom Dinner and they went on and on about Jake Ryan. I did this search to see how well eighties hotness holds up after 30 years. Thanks for digging this up. I guess the ultimate goal in wanting to have a guy like Jake Ryan is to make babies and turn him into a dad. Well he went from hottie to cute dad. That's alright with me.
