Many know the square-jawed Michael Schoeffling as the dreamy Jake Ryan from the classic '80s teen movie Sixteen Candles. The model-turned-actor studied liberal arts and competed on the wrestling team at Temple University in Philadelphia before he started modeling for GQ, eventually taking acting classes at the Lee Strausberg Theatre Institute. Schoeffling's first major film role came with Sixteen Candles in 1984, and he would appear in a number of movies over the following years, like Vision Quest and Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken, before starting a family and retiring from acting to design and craft furniture.
