Judd Nelson played criminal John Bender in the iconic film “The Breakfast Club.” Behind the scenes, Nelson stayed in character and bullied his co-star Molly Ringwald. Director John Hughes wanted to fire him because of his behavior, but the actors, including Ringwald herself, made him change his mind. In 1987, he gained a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of Joe Hunt in the TV movie “The Billionaire Boys Club.” He is currently working on the big screen version of the film, but this time, he’s playing Ryan Hunt.
