Anthony Michael Hall Could Have Played Ferris and Other Facts About Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

It's hard to believe that in 2016, the John Hughes classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off will be thirty years old! Now that I've hit you with that, I'll try to distract you from feeling ancient by presenting these fun facts about the film. For instance, it could have been quite the different animal if other actors reportedly considered for and/or offered roles in it had come to fruition:

"Molly Ringwald really wanted the role of Sloan, but Hughes didn’t think that the role was big enough for her. Anthony Michael Hall is convinced that Hughes wrote the part of Ferris for him and that a falling out between the two affected that, despite Hughes saying that Matthew Broderick was his first choice for the role from the beginning. Emilio Estevez also turned down the role of Cameron."
