Principal Vernon Dead

For fans of the Breakfast Club, you will be saddened to hear of the death over the weekend Paul Gleason.

The 62 old Gleason played Principal Vernon with his other claim to fame Clarence Beeks in Trading Places.

His list of credits include Die Hard, Van Wilder, Friends, Seinfeld, Dawson's Creek and Malcolm in the Middle.

He specialised in playing 'that guy'.

The trading places role is the one I'll remember - one classic line (which can't be repeated in prime time...)

JCop - Amen

Gilly - Along the lines of "ripping out eyes and something down the brain."

DCDI: Yes, it was a fantastic, iconoclastic movie of the 80's...up there with Ferris Bueler's Day off.

Thanks for posting this!
