    Default paul gleason of breakfast club fame dead.

    BURBANK, Calif. - Paul Gleason, who played the go-to bad guy in "Trading Places" and the angry high school principal in "The Breakfast Club," has died. He was 67.

    Gleason died at a local hospital Saturday of mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer linked to asbestos, said his wife, Susan Gleason.

    "Whenever you were with Paul, there was never a dull moment," his wife said. "He was awesome."

    A native of Miami, Gleason was an avid athlete. Before becoming an actor, he played Triple-A minor league baseball for a handful of clubs in the late 1950s.

    Gleason honed his acting skills with his mentor Lee Strasberg, whom he studied with at the Actors Studio beginning in the mid-1960s, family members said.

    Through his career, Gleason appeared in over 60 movies that included "Die Hard," "Johnny Be Good," and "National Lampoon's Van Wilder." Most recently, Gleason made a handful of television appearances in hit shows such as "Friends" and "Seinfeld."

    Gleason's passions went beyond acting. He had recently published a book of poetry.

    "He was an athlete, an actor and a poet," said his daughter, Shannon Gleason-Grossman. "He gave me and my sister a love that is beyond description that will be with us and keep us strong for the rest of our lives."

    Actor Jimmy Hawkins, a friend of Gleason's since the 1960s, said he remembered Gleason for a sharp sense of humor.

    "He just always had great stories to tell," Hawkins said.

    Gleason was survived by his wife, two daughters and a granddaughter. Funeral plans were pending.

    He had the best line in the movie "Die Hard". After the FBI helicopter assault went up in flames he says: "I guess we're gonna need some more FBI guys".

    He will be missed. He's certainly had some GREAT one-liners, tho.

    Sorry to hear about this. The man DID have some great one-lners in movies. Didn't play the hero characters but was great at the goofy characters that he did.

    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.

    I don't think he was "The Principal" in the Breakfast Club... He was just Dick Vernon, a teacher at Shermer High School, Shermer, IL making $31,000 a year... A man of respect around here... Principal's generally don't get stuck monitoring Saturday detention...

    That being said, I've really started to have a thing for Molly Ringwald lately...
