Actor: Matthew Broderick
Films: Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Ferris Bueller is a ragamuffin and a bad influence on his friends as he persuades them to bunk school for a day. As is his truant antics weren't bad enough, his actions have further legal repercussions including theft and criminal damage. In his defence, though, he is funny.
Really though, he is just a typical teenager with typical teenage dreams - he is just one of the few with the 'nads to realise these dreams and turn them into a reality. Undoubtedly he is also going to fail all of his exams, not least because of the ill relationship he has with the Dean, Edward Rooney.
Matthew Broderick has a habit of being that guy. You know... that guy from that film. He has undoubtedly become most well known for Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but he was also that guy from Inspector Gadget. You know... Inspector Gadget. He was also the main man from the 1983 film WarGames where he plays an unmotivated teenager who nearly starts World War III.
Broderick has also headlined in Godzilla (well, headlined after a CGI monster) and voice acted as the grown-up Simba in The Lion King. You might have also seen him in The Cable Guy fighting Jim Carrey in a satellite dish.
Yes, Broderick has had a very bizarre career.
