43. The guy who played Cameron Frye was almost 30 years old

Nov 2014

Alan Ruck was born on July 1, 1956, making him 29 years, 11 months, and 11 days old when the film was released on June 11, 1986.

Matthew Broderick (born March 21, 1962), would have been 24 years, 2 months and 22 days old.

Mia Sara (Sloane Peterson) was born June 19, 1967, the youngest of the trio of Cameron, Sloane and Ferris and the only actual teenager. Age at release: 18 years, 11 months, 24 days old.

Judd Nelson (born November 28, 1959) was 25 years, 2 months and 19 days old when The Breakfast Club was released on February 15, 1985. Second-oldest: Emilio Estevez (born May 12, 1962), 22 years, 9 months and 4 days old at time of release. He slightly edges out, by a month and one day, Ally Sheedy (born June 13, 1962), who was 22 years, 8 months and 3 days old on the release date.

Youngest by far were Molly Ringwald (born February 18, 1968), just 16 years, 11 months and 29 days old, and Anthony Michael Hall (born April 14, 1968), 16 years, 10 months and 2 days old and the "baby" of the cast. He remains the youngest-ever cast member of Saturday Night Live.

Overall, though, it seems most of these teen roles were played by 20-somethings.
