Judd Nelson

Born: 11/28/1959
Birthplace: Portland, Maine

A member of the so-called “Brat Pack,” of the 1980s, Judd Nelson burst upon the Hollywood scene by starring in three successful young adult films, The Breakfast Club, Fandango, and St. Elmo's Fire (all 1985). His follow-up efforts in more grown-up movies, Blue City (1986) and From the Hip (1987), were panned by critics and performed poorly at the box office, and, like many of his fellow Brat Packers, Nelson's career stalled. In 1996, he co-starred with Brooke Shields on the NBC situation comedy Suddenly Susan.
