Veteran actor Paul Gleason, best known to many fans as Principal Richard Vernon in The Breakfast Club, has died.

From http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060529/ap_on_en_mo/obit_gleason:
Quote:
Gleason died at a local hospital Saturday of mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer linked to asbestos.


Personally, the more times I watched The Breakfast Club through the years, the more I viewed Principal Vernon as a tragic (if not exactly sympathetic) character. I don't know if that's an artifact of getting older or just having seen the movie enough times for the subtleties of Gleason's brilliant delivery to sink in. I like to think it's the latter.

Gleason will be missed, and I am saddened that a proper Breakfast Club reunion movie is now less likely than ever. Yes, I'm serious. Fuck you.

I'm really sad now. Yes, I'm serious, too. Bummer.

Without his totally believable principal, even though it was an exaggerated stereotype, the rest of the movie would have been unbearable.
