The Goonies, a childhood classic based on a story by Steven Spielberg, follows a group of kids living in Oregon who attempt to save their homes from foreclosure by searching for the long-lost fortune of legendary pirate One-Eyed Willy. A box office hit in 1985, the film's young cast featured the likes of Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin, Ke Huy Quan, Martha Plimpton, Sean Astin and others who would go on to become fixtures in Hollywood in the nearly four decades that followed.
In The Goonies, Astin played the gang's asthmatic leader, Michael "Mikey" Walsh. Today, the actor is most famous for playing Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and most recently appearing on Stranger Things.
After playing Stephanie "Stef" Steinbrenner in The Goonies, Plimpton went on to star in everything from 1989's Parenthood to 2010's Raising Hope to a long-running, recurring role on The Good Wife.
In The Goonies, Green played high school cheerleader Andrea Theresa "Andy" Carmichael. Since then, she's appeared on episodes of ER and Law & Order: SVU. She also co-wrote and directed the 1999 film Bellyfruit.
Ke Huy Quan
A breakout child star of 1985, Quan played the spy fanatic, Richard "Data" Wang, before making a big return to Hollywood with his award-winning turn in Everything Everywhere All at Once and a role in Loki season 2.
Brolin made his film debut in The Goonies as Mikey's athletic older brother, Brandon "Brand" Walsh. Now, he's an Oscar nominee for his role in 2008's Milk and most famously played Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
After a short career in the NFL, Matuszak became an actor, most famously playing Lotney "Sloth" Fratelli. He then went on to appear in a number of TV shows during the late '80s before he died in 1989 at the age of 38.
Pantoliano played Francis Fratelli, Mama Fratelli's favorite son, in The Goonies. After a string of successful supporting roles, the actor won an Emmy for his turn as Ralph Cifaretto on The Sopranos.
A child actor, Cohen made his feature film debut in The Goonies as the now-iconic character, Lawrence "Chunk" Cohen. After appearing in several episodes of TV, Cohen left acting for a career in law.
Feldman played the sharp-tongued Goonie, Clark "Mouth" Devereaux, before going on to star in Stand by Me and The Lost Boys in the following years. He most recently appeared in the documentary, (My) Truth: The Rape of Two Coreys, which details allegations of abuse in Hollywood.
