Long Duk Dong is 57 years old?!? Actually, he's probably still 16. But actor Gedde Watanabe is actually 57 years old today.
How is that possible? Well, for starters Gedde was 28 years old when he filmed Sixteen Candles. And we would have seen even more of him in the John Hughes film, but a scene where he sings at the high school dance ultimately was left on the editing room floor.
Sure, Sixteen Candles is a classic and probably the biggest hit movie Gedde starred in, but was it actually his best movie of the '80s?
TOP GEDDE WATANABE MOVIES OF THE '80s:
3. VOLUNTEERS (1985): "Ya know, there is something to be said about just playing with yourself."
2. SIXTEEN CANDLES (1984): "No more yankie my wankie. The Donger need food."
1. GUNG HO (1986): "I'm no millie!"
