Emilio Estevez's boss at the St. Elmos bar is Blake Clark. You may know him as Farmer Fran in the Adam Sandler movies 'WATER BOY' and the homeless guy in the wedding scene in 'I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK AND LARRY'.

Matthew Laurance played Ron, Jules' gay neighbor, also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210 as Mel Silver (David Silver's dad).
Andie McDowell who plays kirby's long lost love may have been in 'Greystoke - the legend of Tarzan' before this but her voice was dubbed by Glenn Close for sounding too southern. In St Elmo's fire she is a wonderful addition.
The neon wall in Jules's appartment is, of course, Billy Idol

The 'hooker' that Andrew McCarthy's character is talking to is none other than Anna Marie Horsford from 'Ice Cube's Friday movies'. She can also be seen on the sitcom 'Amean' with Sherman Hemsley from 'The Jeffersons'.
Thanks to Jade Hurley
The woman who played Wendy's mother in the film (Joyce Van Patten) was briefly married in real life to the man who played Wendy's father (Martin Balsam).
Thanks to Martin Hatfield

Thanks to Christina Venakis

Thanks to Becs D
Whilst still courting each other, Emilio Estevez & Demi Moore both starred in "Wisdom" which was an 'Estevez' vehicle as it was Emilio's debut as a Director. This movie was a modern day 'Bonnie & Clyde', but without all the killings. Emilio starred in this film as a 23 year old who had a few drinks with his buddies one night, which turned into a silly stealing car scenario. His arrest then followed with a botch in his otherwise clean record. Emilio and Demi played lovers in this film.
