None other than The Goonies larger-than-life star Chunk. Ever wondered what happened to him? Well, like it or not, you’re about to find out.

The young star of the 1985 hit is none other than Jeffrey Bertan Cohen, now American attorney-at-law. Heard of him? No, me neither...

The child actor is a shadow of his former self. With the role of Chunk came a lot of predictable teasing and so Cohen took up high school football in a bid to shed the extra holiday weight.

A bit of trivia for you: after high school Cohen went on to University, before being elected President of the Associated Students.

During his campaign, he embraced his inner Goonie by making t-shirts with “Chunk for president” brandished above a picture of his former chubby self.

So it seems his starring role did come in handy after all.
