How cool is this? John Matuszak, who played the beloved Sloth character in the ’80s classic The Goonies goes through a makeup test back in January 1984. This footage is from The Goonies – Making of a Cult Classic, which aired in 2010. It took over five hours every day for the makeup to be applied to transform the former NFL defensive end Matuszak into the Baby Ruth-loving sloth who saved the Goonies from the Fratellis criminal gang.
Enjoy this very cool piece of ’80s movie history!
