Josh Gad Reunites the Cast of 'The Goonies' 35 Years Later
“The Goonies” cast just got back together after 35 years!
Josh Gad invited pretty much everyone, including Sean Astin (Mikey), Josh Brolin (Brand), Corey Feldman (Mouth), Ke Huy Quan (Data), Jeff Cohen (Chunk), Martha Plimpton (Stef) and Kerri Green (Andy) to be guests on his new web show “Reunited Apart.”
The film, which hit theaters in 1985, followed a group of young kids looking for a pirate's treasure.
Josh had the group delivering their famous lines, singing the theme song “The Goonies 'R' Good Enough” with Cyndi Lauper, and dishing on the film and how they are doing now.
Some special moments included Sean delivering his famous line, “It's our time down here,” and Brolin confessing he was “shaking before we started.”
Jeff revealed he got out of the acting biz, attended law school and is now an entertainment lawyer. Martha joked about how skinny he is now, and Cohen teased that he went from “Chunk to hunk.”
Ke revealed he recently decided to get back into acting, while also reminiscing about starring in “Goonies” and “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.”
“If I didn't survive jumping out of plane with Indiana Jones, I never would have been able to go down the waterslide with my fellow Goonies,” he said.
It didn't stop there. Gad brought on The Fratelli Brother actors Robert Davi and Joe Pantoliano, screenwriter Chris Columbus, director Richard Donner, and Steven Spielberg, who wrote the story.
Spielberg told a hilarious story about how Richard was ready for a break from all the kids and couldn't wait to go to his house in Hawaii after filming wrapped. Steven decided to play a trick on him and made sure the cast was waiting for Richard when he arrived.
Gad is asking fans to donate to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy's COVID-19 relief fund, saying, “Our hope is that every episode of 'Reunited Apart' will focus on a charity established to help those most in need during these desperate times.”
