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.
