I'm very sad about this. I'm especially thinking of the movies he made with John Candy. John Candy was my late brother Jimmy's favorite actor, so this is all very emotional for me.

And why is "True" by Spandau Ballet going through my head???

So sad. I have seen practically all his movies except a couple.

Breakfast Club and Some Kind of Wonderful are very awesome movies that i'll watch over and over until i die.

The first thing I thought when I saw this was, "What, another celebrity death hoax?"

I really, really don't want this to be true.

I liked a few of his films, but not a big fan.

Some Kind of Wonderful and Pretty in Pink are legitimately very good films.
