WEHT Michael Schoeffling from “Sixteen Candles”?

They’re giving this right now on AMC and I forgot how incredibly gorgeous this guy was.

The first time I saw him was in Mermaids with Cher. I loved when he took Winona Ryder’s V card as poor Christina Ricci was drowning.

He is iconic as “Jake Ryan” and one of the most beautiful love interests in a teen comedy.

What happened to him?

Matt Dillon happened and killed any possible career Michael could have had. They looked alike, only Dillon was an actual actor while Schoeffling was a model whose looks scored him movie roles.

Schoeffling was the prettier, but less talented, version of Matt Dillon.

He became tired of good roles never coming his way so he picked up his wife, kid, and moved to PA and started a furniture store, which he always wanted to do. Completely abandoned Hollywood in the middle of the night and never looked back.

R26 Jesus. I’m so sick of people arguing that Jake Ryan would have never went for Sam in real life.

He already had the most popular girl in school and he wasn’t happy with her. He could have anyone in that school but he chose her cause he found her weirdness and awkwardness endearing and liked it.

Sometimes the not so pretty girl or guy gets the hot guy/girl. Lord knows I’ve seen plenty of couples where you question how one landed the other.

R27, get real. Tom Brady ends up with Giselle Bundschen. All of these athletes end up with models/actresses/cheerleaders. And they still fuck around on them.

He had the most popular girl in the movie and in IRL, he'd fuck around on her with every chick including the plain one, but never "fall in love" - it's fucking HS.

So Michael Schoeffling was the straight version of Matt Dillon?

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 3503/08/2019

He'll be forever known as the mythical "Jake Ryan, the most popular boy in school", who only wants a girl who will really love him and who hands over his dead drunk girlfriend Caroline to a repulsive little creep to do with what he will. Here's some accurate commentary on Jake Ryan:

Jake Ryan is the embodiment of a fantasy so compelling it instantly made Sixteen Candles iconic: What if the object of all your romantic high school dreams decided to pursue you without you having to expend any effort whatsoever, just because they could see that you were, like, deeper and more special than the rest of the school? What if they somehow saw that without you ever having to have a conversation or interact with them in any way?

“Jake stands the test of time,” wrote Hank Stuever in the Washington Post in 2004. He quotes a 34-year-old woman who grew up on Jake Ryan: “Oh, gosh, Jake Ryan. Just thinking about it now, I get … kind of … It’s all just too good to be true.”

Jake Ryan’s reputation as the ideal dream boy of every teenage girl’s deepest fantasies has lasted for decades. Jake, writes Stuever, “is Christ, redeeming the evil sins of high school. Jake as the ideal. Jake as the eternal belief in something better.”

Yet Jake Ryan cold-bloodedly hands a drunk and unconscious Caroline over to another guy and says, “Have fun.”

by Anonymousreply 3603/08/2019

Was Matt Dillon really ever considered that talented that it could have hurt Schoeffling's career? In spite of some similarity in looks, they didn't really seem the same type to me at all.

by Anonymousreply 3703/08/2019

Dillon was considered an actor who got the good roles. Schoeffling was the model who was offered the roles where he didn’t have to do much but be pretty and charming.

Dillon isn’t some amazing thespian but he would act circles around Schoeffling.

by Anonymousreply 3803/08/2019

Matt Dillon was already an established movie star by the time 16 Candles came out in 1984.

by Anonymousreply 3903/08/2019

R34 the thing is he spend his entire HS career fucking who he wanted and partying. You forget he was now a senior about to graduate... he maybe was feeling a bit different now and wanted someone that actually was into him and not just wanting him for his status and looks.

R36 yes, I know. But that was common mentality amongst young men, that still exists today in HS and college aged guys. It’s not right but it’s not uncommon.

And yes, the character Jake Ryan, and Schoefflings image as Jake Ryan, are iconic and engraved in pop culture. If you search Jake Ryan on twitter or Sixteen Candles, you’ll find tons of young girls that have seen the film now going on and on about “perfect” Jake Ryan. I’m sure most only feel that way cause of who they cast to play him.

by Anonymousreply 4003/08/2019

Dillon was still fresh in 1984, and had first dibs on good roles. Schoeffling never stood a chance. His lane was modeling and he should have remained and thrived there.

R43 I agree. Like I said above, the Jake Ryan character is engraved in pop culture mainly cause of who was cast in the role. His image is what people think of when they think of this film. Molly Ringwald, and the beautiful Jake Ryan. No one cares about his flaws. They see him as perfect cause he is, physically.

Some also bitch about the Asian character.

I'm surprised people haven't asked Sixteen Candles to be banned. It's so politically incorrect - the Asian character, Jake allowing his drunk passed out girlfriend to be taken home by a stranger (and we're STILL supposed to root for him and Sam??) and they have sex (though she's drunk), the sister being completely drugged out at her own wedding. The whole movie seems to be about women not being able to consent (sex, wedding).

It didn't age well.

by Anonymousreply 5003/08/2019

How did the sister not consent to her wedding?!

And Jake acknowledges his girlfriend is so drunk he can endlessly violate her all he wants but he hasn’t no interest, he wants someone that actually wants HIM. Then Anthony Michael Hall looks at him like he’s crazy, and Jake himself says he’s crazy for wanting someone that cares about him vs violating his drunk GF. He then tells AMH to take her home, make sure she gets home after he’s done with her.

It’s all right here.

Jake sounds like a normal teen guy of the 80s, to be honest.

The Asian Character is a stereotype to the extreme. And some of the lines are racist.

Her friend and her are speaking about how she wants a new car with a hot guy in it for her birthday, then Sam says “a black one”, her friend replies “A BLACK GUY?!” In shock and disgust and she says “no a black car. A pink guy”

He had a good run, and a lot of his films still play on television regularly, particularly Sixteen Candles and Mermaids. New generations of young girls discover them, and new crushes begin.

He must still get residuals when they air, I assume?

There were long periods in between films for him. He grew tired of the lack of roles, and his retirement from the industry came sooner than planned.

He was now married with two kids, that’s why he decided to abandon. If it were still just him I think he would have tried a little longer.

by Anonymousreply 6703/08/2019

Sam and Jake weren’t gonna last long regardless. He’s having some moment where he wants to be with someone that “cares” about him. In his mind her fawning over him is her caring about him.

He also was a senior about to graduate from a rich family. She’s middle class and a Sophomore. Once he left to college they were done. He would probably want to try long distance but once he got out and saw some hot college girls, he would be balls deep in them.

IMO, the ending of "16 Candles" was unrealistic.

When I see a mismatched heterosexual couple (man is a 9 and woman is a 5), I speculate that the man is gay.

IMO, Molly Ringwald was good-looking in "16 Candles." However, she was good-looking in a way that the high school boys, including Jake, would not have appreciated. (Short-ish red hair, vintage-type clothing, etc.)

As others have mentioned, even a decent actor like Matt Dillon seems to pick and choose his roles these days. I honestly wish more actors and actresses like this would do that instead of putting fillers in their faces and doing reality shows to stay relevant. It's just sad.

Yes, I knew he was the first CK underwear guy in GQ. At like 19 or 20 he was already in GQ. He has a degree in Liberal Arts and yes, very shy and conservative.

And I keep telling people that he wasn’t gay nor did he use his body to get ahead. Had he been willing he would have had a better career. I mean, after 1986 he didn’t land another movie until 1989. I’m sure that wouldn’t have been the case if he used his “assets” to get ahead.

Hollyweird high ups wanted to devour him.

by Anonymousreply 9403/09/2019

Why do very private people go into modeling and acting? They only seem to get really private when their career is on the down turn. Anyway I enjoyed him in everything he did and I understand that was mostly because of how good looking he was. The only two that come close to him are Robert Tyler(a few of you will know) and Ryan McPartlin.

by Anonymousreply 9503/09/2019

R95 cause the opportunity fell on his lap. He didn’t seek it out. He got his degree from Temple University and a photographer got him into modeling while he was there. He was a good student as well as a wrestler. He was a collegiate wrestler that won many medals in national and international championships.

Photographer Bruce Weber took notice of him, and made him a model. Weber also KNEW with his looks he had a face that could make it in films, so he personally paid for Schoefflings acting classes in Manhattan. Not long after Schoeffling would land the role of Jake Ryan, which would bring him stardom internationally (as is still relevant to this day).

He didn’t seek it out. It came to him and he took advantage of it and saved up as much money as he could.

The plan was always to eventually move into obscurity.

Yes, r130. I knew someone that knew him, but it’s been years since we’ve spoken. I don’t know if they still speak, but I always knew he hated Hollywood, the attention his looks get, and he only went along with the model and actor thing to save up money for his and eventually his families future. He never once intended to stay in Hollywood and always planned on leaving once he was content.

He ended up leaving sooner and going into hiding in a small town so no one can bother him.

I wonder if he resents Jake Ryan.

I've always heard it referred to as "Male Pattern Optimism" (coined by a TV critic before "King of Queens" existed.) It refers to schlubby male TV characters with much hotter partners. Think Jackie Gleason (Audrey Meadows), Bob Newhart (Suzanne Pleshette and Mary Frann), Mark Addy (Jami Gertz,), Ray Romano (Patty Heaton), Jim Belushi (Courtney Thorne-Smith) etc.

“Listen to all the Thompson Twins songs you want, but let's finally admit that Jake Ryan from "Sixteen Candles" is never coming to get you.

Not in the red Porsche 944, and not wearing that Fair Isle sweater vest. Not with his shiny black hair moussed gently heavenward, not with his gooey brown eyes and square Matt Dillonesque jaw. He will not be standing there with his hands in the pockets of his 501 button-fly jeans (while leaning against said Porsche), and he will not be shyly waving at you from across the street. ("Yeah, you," he mouths, just as in the movie, after you look behind you to see what girl he could possibly be interested in.)

Let's be even more clear: Popular high school seniors don't dump their cheerleader girlfriends with great bods so they can ask out a sophomore girl nobody notices. Jake did not actually do this, because he is not real.“

by Anonymousreply 17703/09/2019

I've often wondered why Michael agreed to do Longtime Companion. That was a risky role to take back in 1990.

Maybe he had friends from his modeling days who died of AIDS and he connected to the story. He probably knew by then that he didn't want to act much longer, so he probably didn't care if it hurt him or not.

Another impossibility from "Sixteen Candles": that cake. The "most popular boy in school" shows up in his Porsche and 501 jeans and Fair Isle sweater to whisk away the geeky sophomore girl who he has never even had a conversation with, takes her to his parent's luxurious home (apparently at least ONE room wasn't demolished in that party he held there while the parents were conveniently away) and there they seal their love with a kiss in a room romantically lit by sixteen perfect candles decorating a perfect cake. What the living fuck? In addition to all his other perfection (his looks, his sensitivity, his depth, his wealth) he also goes out and buys a cake and candles that provide that final touch of romance for their first evening of love? This movie wasn't a comedy, it was science fiction.

by Anonymousreply 18003/09/2019

Michael Schoeffling (Jake Ryan) was so shy during his audition that he almost lost the role. But the film’s producer Michelle Manning found him so “stunning and dreamy” that they cast him.

Viggo Mortensen was up for the part but it went to “dreamy” model Schoeffling instead. Ringwald recently stated that she wanted Viggo for the role, she found him more attractive than Michael, but she doesn’t get to say. In reality, she’s still bitter that Schoeffling stole the entire movie from her and is the face of a classic despite her being first billed.

Out of all male love interests in films, he’s one of the most important in his impact on people. Why? Like one person said in one of the articles I read, who they cast plays a big role in why he became so important, he’s the perfect aesthetic. Physically, he’s perfect. Add his charm and cuteness, and his wanting love and sensitivity, he was ideal to most women and teen girls that saw (and still see it to this day). The character has a gay following also, again, a lot due to who was cast as him.

“Jake Ryan” is used as a term in the dating world. He’s what many women hold as a standard to live up to when dating. Even actresses have spoken about him, like Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Recently Amy Schumer declared she found her “Jake Ryan”.

He’s a character that will never die.

Jake Ryan would have gone into porn

by Anonymousreply 27003/11/2019

No. He wouldn’t.

He was from a rich family. He wouldn’t even have to do good in school, he would still get into any Ivy League school of his choice and had a career despite bad grades.

by Anonymousreply 27103/11/2019

He probably went to Princeton (his father's alma mater) or perhaps Northwestern if his grades and boards were really poor. After Wharton he glided into a cushy job pushing papers around a desk, aka finance.

"No wonder Jake ended up going for Sam. "

She's geeky looking, a sophomore and they've never even exchanged any words with each other. But despite all that he decides she's the girl for him? It's pure movie fantasy. It would never happen in real life.

God knows, the power ups tried getting him, he wouldn’t budge. He would have gotten better roles if he put out but he isn’t that person.

I respect him.

He also has zero issues with gays. He just isn’t.

The biggest reason his modeling career fizzled was he was being pestered by creepy old guys like my boss Pepo Vennini and that pig Bruce Weber. He wasn't interested.

Michael Bergen caved and did well for a while. So did Thom Flemming. Best looking of the bunch. Nice but dumb.

Funny, Thom does furniture and cabinetry but on Long Island.

by Anonymousreply 29803/11/2019

Michael Bergins modeling career was about a decade after Michael Schoeffling.

But yes, Bergin used his body to get ahead, Schoeffling didn’t.

Schoeffling should be proud, he never even thought of modeling or acting. That shit found him! That’s how you know you’re gorgeous, and even with that he was always humble and grounded.

He timed his Hollywood days perfectly.

He got a few good gigs when there was more demand for the Matt Dillon type than Matt Dillon could do or want to do. He got out of Hollywood when there wasn't enough demand for the Matt Dillon type for even Matt Dillon.

He’s a lot smarter than most give him credit for.

Walking away young and beautiful and staying off the internet, not allowing images of him posted etc. his image of young and beautiful is eternal, and he didn’t have to die young to gain that like James Dean.

Him and Matt Dillon could pass for brothers.

Michael and Thom Flemming were contemporaries. As were Michael Ives, Tod Erving and that creepy one who ended up marrying Christie Brinkley.

Michael Bergen came later but the same creeps were still there. I was in L.A. by then.

No, it's a movie fantasy. In real life the "Jake Ryan" would just move on to another hot girlfriend, instead of going after a geeky little girl he'd never even spoken to once.
