Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck Have Mini ‘Ferris Bueller’ Reunion at ‘Succession’ Premiere
Matthew Broderick and Alan Ruck had a mini Ferris Bueller’s Day Off reunion last night (March 22) at a premiere event for HBO’s Succession.
Broderick and Ruck, of course, played best friends Ferris Bueller and Cameron Frye in the classic 1986 John Hughes comedy. Ruck plays Connor Roy in the popular HBO drama series whose final season begins on March 26.
As with many high-profile events, a fun photo booth was on hand at the Succession premiere. Broderick and Ruck popped in for some fun pics which were shared by the HBO Max Twitter. The two friends were clearly having a blast hanging out together. Appropriately, the post was captioned, “Life moves pretty fast.”
This is far from the first Ferris Bueller reunion. As part of his 2020 pandemic YouTube series “Reunited Apart,” host Josh Gad got most of the cast to reunite over Zoom. Including Broderick and Ruck, other cast members that participated included Mia Sara and Jennifer Grey. Even Ben Stein, who played the economics teacher famous for uttering, “Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?”, joined in.
The reunion also featured appearances from Cindy Pickett and Lyman Ward, who played Ferris’ parents, and Kenny Ortega, who choreographed the parade scene.
The video closes with a touching tribute to writer/director John Hughes that features appearances from Catherine O’Hara, Molly Ringwald, Steve Martin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Chevy Chase, Michael Keaton and more. The entire sequence stars at the 40:00 mark.
After the closing credits, stick around for a fun callback to the end credits of Ferris Bueller.
