Guess Who No. 6: Mike IS a dork!

154133__guess_l"I could be smoking crack, but my first thought was Justin Henry, the annoying little brother from Sixteen Candles. Congratulations, Jeff Sparkman, apparently you are smoking crack — because it is Justin Henry!

No, it’s not Family Ties‘ little Andy (Brian Bonsall) or A Christmas Story‘s Little Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) or The Brady Bunch‘s little Oliver (Robbie Rist) or the Life cereal commercial’s little Mikey (John Gilchrist).

And about half of you were convinced — convinced! — it was Eight Is Enough‘s Adam Rich. And while I won’t deny that Rich and Henry share a serious resemblance, the correct answer is an all-growed-up Henry , now 34, pictured at left, best known for being both the youngest Oscar nominee ever (in 1979, he earned a Best Supporting Actor nod for his heartbreaking performance in Kramer vs. Kramer, pictured at right, when he was 8) and for being Molly Ringwald’s wiseacre sib, Mike, in 1984’s Sixteen Candles (“sofa city, sweetheart”).

(About a quarter of you knew that – see the list of brown-nosers after the jump…)

Congrats — you can make your own pancakes!

    Is it sad that I’m a little depressed someone forgot to put my name on the list? My trivia pride is at stake! Ah well.

  • Adam

    I’m right there with you, had the answer and sadly disappointed my name isn’t in lights. Guess ours are now! :)

  • Adam

    Ooops I can’t read, I was one of the many with the wrong answer! :)

  • Vicki

    Tee hee. I even gave him the “sofa city, sweetheart,” line. And alas… nothing.

    “Better than being a dumbass”

  • Nick

    I thought he was actually Damien from “The Omen” (1976), which would’ve made it somewhat current.

    How did Justin change his eyes from brown to blue?
