Aaron Paul, Jennifer Garner, and Michael Chiklis Join The Breakfast Club

The face of someone who thinks Claire is a "fat girl's name."

Jason Reitman announced the rest of the cast for tonight's staged reading of The Breakfast Club at LACMA — and it's amazing. Michael Chiklis will play the principal, Jennifer Garner will play the Molly Ringwald character of Claire, and Aaron Paul will play Judd Nelson's character, Bender. Aaron Paul! As Judd Nelson! They join Mindy Kaling (Ally Sheedy), James Van Der Beek (Emilio Estevez), Patton Oswalt (Anthony Michael Hall), and J.K. Simmons (the janitor) in what sounds like the most fun tribute to the John Hughes movie ever. Take this staged reading on the road, please. [Jason Reitman]
