Hall began his career in commercials and on stage as a child, and made his screen debut in 1980. His films with director-screenwriter John Hughes, beginning with the popular 1984 coming-of-age comedy SIXTEEN CANDLES, shaped his early career. Hall's next movies with Hughes were the teen classics THE BREAKFAST CLUB and WEIRD SCIENCE, both in 1985. His performances as lovable geeks in these three films connected his name and face with the stereotype for an entire generation.
Hall diversified his roles to avoid becoming typecast as his geek persona, joining the cast of “Saturday Night Live” (1985–1986)
