What the Cast of ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’ Is Doing 35 Years Later

We love teen movies, but the ones from the 1980s are truly the best. The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Sixteen Candles will always stay in our hearts, but there has never been another teen film as funny and iconic Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

The scene where Spicoli (Sean Penn) orders a pizza during class still cracks us up, the friendship between Stacy (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and Linda (Phoebe Cates) still feels so real and relatable, and who didn’t have an insufferable teacher like Mr. Hand (Ray Walston) in high school? The film’s director, Amy Heckerling, went on to write and direct movies like Clueless and Look Who’s Talking, while screenwriter Cameron Crowe went on to write and direct other great movies, such as Say Anything, Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous. Let’s take a look at what the cast of Fast Times is up to today.
