Joking around in LA, the '80s screen legend admitted he gets asked to recreate the iconic scene from the classic Spielberg adventure as "a daily occurrence".
In the immortal 1985 Richard Donner-directed comedy, Cohen played Lawrence Cohen (no relation), or "Chunk" to his friends, one of the so-called Goonies alongside Mikey, Brand, Mouth, Andy, Stef, and Data (and later, honorary member Sloth -- "Hey you guys!"). Together they seek the treasure of the pirate and original Goonie One-Eyed Willie, while trying to stay one step ahead of the nasty Mama Fratelli and her awful sons.
While Cohen left the acting industry to successfully pursue a career as a lawyer, many of his co-stars stuck it out and went on to become some of the famous faces in the game, including Corey Feldman, Sean Astin and of course Thanos himself, Josh Brolin.
Astin recently came back to star in "Stranger Things", a Netflix show that pays heavy homage to the classics of the 80s -- "The Goonies" included.
But when asked if he would follow suit and join season 4 if he was invited, Cohen admitted he preferred the safety of his legal desk.
"You know, I'm a lawyer now so I think I'm safer at the law firm," he smiled.
Having received a fair amount of good-natured ribbing from his friends over his weight as "Chunk", Cohen attributed high school football with the pounds he shed afterward.
According to the DVD commentary of "The Goonies", the now-45 year old contracted chickenpox just before he was due to start filming; fearing he would lose the role, he never told anyone, and part of his rash can be spied when he performs the Truffle Shuffle.
