John Hughes Dies at 59

Which John Hughes Character Did You Crush On the Most?

We just got the sad news that director John Hughes passed away today at the age of 59. Hughes was the creator of many lovable characters. From the swagger-charged Ferris Bueller to Judd Nelson as the rebel John Bender in The Breakfast Club, Hughes had a knack for writing classic teen characters. Earlier today we discussed which movie character is your dream man, but now I'd like to narrow it down. Out of all the characters credited to Hughes (see a full list here), which one did you crush on?

"Blane? His name is Blane? That's not a name, that's a major appliance!" My favorite is Keith -Some Kind of Wonderful. Those eyes :drool:

I loved Blane in "Pretty in Pink," and Jake Ryan in "Sixteen Candles" is just a classic. I envied Molly Ringwald in both of those films!

Cameron, not Ferris. And the dad in Mr. Mom.

I always thought Andrew McCarthy's character from Sixteen Candles was cute but honestly James Spader's character was so sexy to me. His hair, the way he talked, his outfits! LoL

Duckie. I was always disappointed when Andie chose Blaine. :( Also Eric Stoltz as Keith in Some Kind of Wonderful. Love. And I also had a girl crush on Sloane Peterson!
