Sixteen Candles Shirts - 10 Products
Everyone knows Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling), but what about sweet sixteen Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald), Long Duk Dong (Gedde Watanabe), and The Geek (Anthony Michael Hall) in the 1984 romance-comedy, Sixteen Candles? Help Samantha deal with The Geek and her crush on the most popular boy in school, Jake Ryan, with a Sixteen Candles t-shirt from 80sTees.
Geede Watanabe, who played Long Duk Dong, was actually a 28-year old from Utah who only spoke English. He borrowed the thick accent from a Korean friend for the audition. He was worried he would be fired if the director, John Hughes, found out his accent was not real. Hughes just laughed.
