Clearly, Ke Huy Quan is still close to several of his co-stars of “The Goonies”, even saying Variety on Oscar night: “Just before tonight started, Corey Feldman, one of my ‘Goonies’ brothers, called.”

Quan also thanked Jeff Cohen, who played Chunk in the film, in his acceptance speech because Cohen is his entertainment lawyer.

“Of course, Jeff Cohen, who is my entertainment lawyer, is here with me tonight. He was in the audience, and so I wanted to thank him because I love you all so much,” he said.

Cohen was the one who brokered Quan’s deal for the A24 film in the first place, so it’s touching that he thanked him for his help and support.

Interestingly, “The Goonies” director Richard Donner actually paid for Cohen’s college education after learning about his troubled upbringing, something the attorney revealed after Donner’s death in 2021.

Part of Cohen’s statement to Variety he said, “He called me on the phone and instead of just writing a letter of recommendation for college, he told me that he and Lauren had read my letter and that they were going to pay for my college. I was absolutely flabbergasted. I was shocked.”
