John Kapelos on John Hughes, Jackie Gleason, and his explosive arc on Justified
Interesting
John Kapelos got his start on the stage, treading the boards at Chicago's Second City and learning his craft from some of the theater's greats, including the late John Candy, but it's in front of the camera where he's had the greatest impact as an actor: He's been a regular face on TV and in films since the 1980s, and based on his filmography, there's no reason to suspect that he'll be slowing down anytime soon. If there's an era of Kapelos' career that's become the most iconic, though, it's the time he spent working with the late John Hughes, appearing in three of the writer/director's classic films: Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, and The Breakfast Club.
