The Sad, Real-Life Story Of The Man Who Played Sloth On "The Goonies"


"The Goonies" is one of the most beloved classics from 1980s cinema. Directed by Richard Donner (Superman, Lethal Weapon), and written by Steven Spielberg (E.T., Raiders of the Lost Arc) and Chris Columbus (GremlinsHome Alone), the film’s behind-the-scenes star power was matched only by its youthful and inexperienced, but nonetheless talented, stars on camera. Who didn’t have a favorite — Mikey, Chunk, Mouth, Data, Mama Fratelli… OK, maybe not her so much. But what about Sloth? How could you not love the sad story of Sloth, the deformed sibling left chained up in the basement? But maybe more tragic than his onscreen story is the heartbreaking real-life story of Sloth."
