Andrew Thomas McCarthy (born November 29, 1962) is an American actor. He is known for his roles in the 1980s films St. Elmo's Fire, Mannequin, Weekend at Bernie's, Pretty in Pink, and Less Than Zero, and more recently for his role in the television shows Lipstick Jungle, White Collar and Royal Pains. McCarthy gained recognition in Hollywood during the 1980s. His boyish good looks continually had him placed as the sincere and kind leading man. His breakout role was in the 1983 theatrical film Class. He also played the lead role in The Beniker Gang, a Disney film about escaped orphans trying to become a family together, based on the novel "Dear Lola," a children's novel about an 18 year old boy who takes over the writing of an Advice Columnist when she dies." As McCarthy's career grew, he involuntarily became a member of the '80s Hollywood group of young actors known as the "Brat Pack"; McCarthy's better-known films include the Brat Pack films St. Elmo's Fire and Pretty in Pink. During the filming of St. Elmo's Fire, McCarthy took up smoking, a habit he dropped in 1995.
