In what movie can you find Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Emilio Estevez, Ralph Macchio, and C. Thomas Howell? It's a heck of a cast, a who's who of male stars who went on to have massive box-office hits in the '80s and '90s, and it was assembled by director Francis Ford Coppola for the 1983 film The Outsiders. Where are they now, these young toughs?

This group of actors from The Outsiders included future action heroes of the silver screen, romantic and comedic leading men, teen drama mainstays, award-nominated performers, and, to be fair, a couple of one-hit wonders. The cast has been called a precursor to the "Brat Pack," a group of actors who were prominent in comedies and light dramas about young people in the '80s.
