Justin Henry Plays Poker

16candles485_2"What the hell are you bitchin’ about? I gotta sleep under some Chinaman named after a duck’s dork."

There’s very few people in the world we’d be more excited to find out played poker than Justin Henry.

Maybe Billy Zabka. Perhaps Adrian Zmed. Possibly Stiles from Teen Wolf.

Justin Henry is right up there on the top of the list, on par with the likes of John Parr.

Henry is playing in Event #38 ($1,500 NLH) today (photos coming shortly). The same Justin Henry you loved in Sixteen Candles. Or cried with in Kramer vs. Kramer. Or were shocked to find out after an IMDB search was in Lost.

UPDATE: After much thought, we’ve come up with our dream WSOP table of ’80’s stars: Justin Henry, Billy Zabka, Adrian Zmed, Stiles from Teen Wolf, John Parr, The Road Warriors (when they came into the ring to Iron Man, that was fucking awesome), Koko B. Ware, and, what the hell, Ed Meese.

UPDATE II: Henry has made it to Day 2 with over 47,000 in chips.

UPDATE III: We have a pic of Justin Henry at the 2007 WSOP:

UPDATE IV: Justin Henry finished 50th out of 2,778 players and earned $12,893 in his WSOP debut.

    I once read someone suggest the William Zabka trilogy should be released on DVD, with Zabka commenting on each scene. I’d buy it in a second.
    I’d also add the dude who played that chick’s brother in Just One of the Guys (another Zabka classic), Jay and Jules Strongbow, the Iron Shiek, the gut with the ar, injury that never healed, Iron Mike Sharp, the geek dude from last American Virgin and Cameron Fyre.
