He’s also known for his geeky role in Sixteen Candles, his super hunky but douche baggy role in Edward Scissorhands, and for being part of “The Brat Pack” along with his TBC co-stars. Anthony’s career skyrocketed in his teens while girls swooned over his piercing blue eyes (look at those babies), but come to think of it...that was roughly 28 years ago. You might be wondering what in the world is he up to now, and it turns out that his acting career isn’t over yet.
Hall plays Mr. Hart, the cold-hearted and slightly terrifying creative writing teacher in Season 3 of MTV’s Awkward. His addition to the cast makes the show even more exciting as he makes his class [including Jenna] write about some pretty intimate topics about themselves that later on are revealed in succeeding episodes.
The 45-year old actor was notable for his earlier roles as the awkward high school kid and everyone probably remembers him by that reputation up to this day. He probably never would’ve guessed he would end up playing a teacher in the future, but this just gives everyone a whole new different perspective on his acting. He’s doing an awesome job playing a sadistic teacher, by the way.
Awkward is currently on a mid-season break but MTV has announced that the show will be back for its second half of the third season on October 22. You know what that means? More creative writing homework and shirtless Matty McKibben!
