Anthony Michael Corridor says he politely declined to be part of Andrew McCarthy’s Brats documentary


Whereas Anthony Michael Corridor appears again fondly on his Brat Pack days, he didn’t really feel the necessity to revisit the previous for Andrew McCarthy’s new Hulu doc.

For many who took a take a look at Andrew McCarthy’s revisit together with his Brat Pack brethren with the brand new Hulu documentary Brats, some could have seen that a couple of key names didn’t make an look. Judd Nelson and Molly Ringwald have been revealed to have declined involvement with the movie. Nevertheless, one title that was even uncared for to get talked about was Anthony Michael Corridor. Corridor (who has lately given his endorsements to remakes of his 80s classics Bizarre Science and The Breakfast Membership) spoke with The Wrap, the place he shed some gentle on his absence from the doc.

When requested if McCarthy had referred to as him up for an look, Corridor defined, “He did. And I can go on record saying, I politely declined because I’m always making new stuff and always moving forward and looking ahead. So that was my own impetus for why I chose not to be a part of that. To be very honest, I’ve wholeheartedly embraced my John Hughes work because I wouldn’t be on the phone with you if it was not for John Hughes. I’ve been talking about my work with him and my start in the industry since [the ’80s], so it’s not like I’ve been avoiding that conversation. But with respect to Andrew’s project. I haven’t seen it. I heard it was interesting.”

Whereas the Brats documentary showcased how McCarthy’s profession had been affected by the fateful David Blum article that coined the time period “Brat Pack,” Corridor admits his response was far totally different. The Set off Warning star defined, “To be fair, I never really paid attention to the article [that created the Brat Pack label]. It never really meant anything to me. Like, the Rat Pack is interesting to me. But the Brat Pack thing, it was just a moniker. Maybe it speaks more to the writer at that time, if anything.”

Corridor was then requested if he felt the article impacted his profession and he responds, “If anything, it motivated me to keep moving forward. I always have and the truth is, I’m grateful for that. People ask, ‘What does it take to be in an industry like this for so long?’ And the word ‘unstoppable’ comes to mind, because at a certain point, you need to become unstoppable. You have to decide, ‘This is what I’m going to do.’ And there isn’t really a Plan B. I was thrown into the industry at such a young age and I had these incredible opportunities from John Hughes, Harold Ramis and Lorne Michaels, these were the giants whose shoulders I stood on. [Hughes] saw something in me as a kid. So if anything, it gave me the impetus and the courage to keep going and move forward. And that’s what I’ve always opted to do.”
