This ‘Goonies’ Star Helped Co-Star Ke Huy Quan Make His Hollywood Comeback

Ke Huy Quan hadn’t been on the big screen in decades. And yet, the actor has been sweeping this year’s awards season for his comeback performance in Everything Everywhere All At Once. Quan is the odds-on favorite to win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor at the 95th Oscars. And as it turns out, he has one of his old co-stars to thank for helping him close the deal to star in his new movie.

Quan memorably made his film debut as Short Round in 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. That Steven Spielberg-directed hit seemed like a surefire ticket to stardom. Yet, despite another memorable role as Data in the following year’s Spielberg-produced adventure comedy The Goonies, Quan didn’t exactly see his star burn bright for too much longer.
