| Anthony Michael Hall was 14 when he essayed his first screen role in the Kenny Rogers vehicle Six Pack. With his cracked voice, skinny frame, and unkempt hair, Hall went on to play nerds and dweebs in such films as Sixteen Candles (1984) and The Breakfast Club (1985), working so well under the direction of John Hughes that there were those who assumed that Hughes was treating the young actor as an alter ego, reliving his own "misfit" high school years. Hall's film career temporary eclipsed in 1985, partly as the result of a disastrous personal-appearance tour during which the actor behaved in a fashion that could charitably be described as bizarre. He showed up as a regular on TV's Saturday Night Live later that year, and as he grew older, became too athletic and self-assured to continue in his previous "clueless" vein. Hall's professional second life as a character actor began with his villainous performance in Edward Scissorhands (1990). He turned to directing with the 1994 theatrical feature Hail Caesar, in which he cast himself as a relentlessly obnoxious rock star. In 2001, he starred as Whitey Ford in Billy Crystal's made-for-TV movie 61*.
- Youngest member of "Saturday Night Live" (1975) ever, he was 17. Was only on SNL for one season because he had to go to rehab.
- Turned down roles in Pretty in Pink (1986) and Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) so he would not be typecast.
- Was hired by Stanley Kubrick to star in Full Metal Jacket (1987), but was fired after repeatedly complaining about Kubrick's time consuming, perfectionist directing style. He was replaced with Matthew Modine.
- Is now going by given birth name, Michael Hall.
- He is a singer, plays drums and composes songs for his band.
- Writes and sings for his band, Hall of Mirrors.
- Briefly dated Molly Ringwald.
- Began drinking alcohol when he was 13. By the time he was 18, it was taking over his life. In 1990, he quit drinking and has been sober ever since.
- Former "brat packer."
- Brother of Mary Christian, she was his on screen sister in The Breakfast Club (1985) as well.
- All of the characters played by Anthony in John Hughes films are actually based on Hughes himself.
- His favorite character he ever played was Bill Gates in Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999) (TV). He thought it was fun playing the richest man in the world.
- In Freddy Got Fingered (2001), Anthony had trouble driving the sports car his character had. Director Tom Green commented in the DVD of the film that it took several dozen takes to get the two-second shot.
- For his role as Whitey Ford in 61* (2001) (TV), rather than learning to pitch left-handed, he wore his Yankee uniform number and logo backward, and pitched right-handed. The image was then flipped.
- Has appeared with actor and friend Robert Downey Jr. in Weird Science (1985), Johnny Be Good (1988), and Hail Caesar (1994) (which he directed himself).
- Stanley Kubrick claimed that the collaboration between Hall and director John Hughes was "the most promising since James Stewart and Frank Capra."
