Actor Anthony Michael Hall joins Dan to go back in time to explore the iconic coming of age movie from 1985, The Breakfast Club. He discusses why the movie keeps resonating with different generations, how difficult it was to balance serious social issues with humor during the "group therapy" scene, and what it was like to work with the legendary director John Hughes on essentially an 80's trifecta of influential movies (Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, and Weird Science). AMH also talks about first encountering John Hughes on National Lampoon's Vacation, his one-year stint on Saturday Night Live with Robert Downey Jr., and what part he's playing in the upcoming horror revival Halloween Kills.
