'The Shawshank Redemption' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Gary Susman on Sep 22nd 2014 4:39PM
It's hard to believe now, given the film's ubiquity, that "The Shawshank Redemption" didn't get much notice upon its initial release 20 years ago this week (on September 23, 1994). The movie was not a hit, earning just $28 million in theaters. It did get nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (for Morgan Freeman), and Best Adapted Screenplay (for writer/director... read more

'ER' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Gary Susman on September 09, 2014
At last month's Emmys, host Seth Meyers jokingly referred to Julianna Margulies as the only "ER" cast member ever to amount to anything. Get it? Because in the 20 years since "ER" debuted (on Sept. 19, 1994), many of its alumni have enjoyed distinguished careers, including an actor who was all but unknown when the series premiered, a fellow named Clooney. In fact, of the original sextet, few...

'80s and '90s Summer Blockbuster Stars: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Wonderwall on July 07, 2014
By Rebecca Silverstein, Wonderwall Hugh Jackman, Mark Wahlberg and Andrew Garfield have rocked 2014's summer box office. But just because they're starring in this year's biggest blockbusters doesn't guarantee that they'll stay on top in Hollywood. Just ask some of the stars of '80s and '90s summer blockbusters. ...

​The Cast of 'Entourage': Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Gary Susman on July 07, 2014
Hug it out! It's the tenth anniversary of "Entourage," which debuted on HBO on July 18, 2004. A sort of "Sex and the City" for guys, a satire of modern Hollywood, and a roman a clef loosely based on the adventures of series co-producer Mark Wahlberg and his retinue, "Entourage" offered eight seasons of male bonding, fantasy fulfillment, and back-slapping laughter. Since the show went off the...

Former MTV Stars: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Wonderwall on July 07, 2014
By Rebecca Silverstein, Wonderwall It seems like only yesterday the stars of "Jersey Shore" were teaching us the importance of GTL. But these self-proclaimed guidos and guidettes have moved on from Seaside Heights, NJ. Take Pauly D and the Situation, for instance. Pauly D starred in his own spin-off series, opened for Britney Spears on tour and had a custody war with his baby mama. Meanwhile,...

Movie & TV Superheroes: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Wonderwall on June 06, 2014
By Jessica Wedemeyer, Wonderwall For some actors, portraying a superhero is the role of a lifetime. For others, it's the kiss of death, dooming stars to a lifetime of typecasting and looking back at their glory days. Tobey Maguire is one celeb who survived the superhero curse -- but it didn't come easy! In honor of the erstwhile Peter Parker's 39th birthday on June 27, read up on what he's...

'The Notebook' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Wonderwall on June 06, 2014
By Rebecca Silverstein, Wonderwall Not only did "The Notebook" catapult Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams to superstardom, it also made pretty much anyone who saw it shed a tear or two. (Don't lie, guys, you know you sobbed your way through it.) And now, the romantic tearjerker is turning 10 years old. Take a look at where the cast of this epic love story is today. Article photo courtesy...

'Batman' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on August 08, 2014
When "Batman" debuted on June 23, 1989, Michael Keaton convinced those who doubted his casting, and audiences ate up Tim Burton's dark carnival aesthetic. Both Keaton and Burton were back for 1992's "Batman Returns," and oh how we missed them when Joel Schumacher took over the director's chair. Jack Nicholson still makes "best of" lists for his villainous turn as The Joker, but we'd like...

Stars of the '90s: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Wonderwall on June 06, 2014
By Jessica Wedemeyer and Stacie Anthony, Wonderwall We'll always have a soft spot for the '90s: the bad hair, the even worse clothes and, of course, the totally awesome pop culture. But whatever happened to your favorite stars of the '90s? In honor of Selma Blair's 42nd birthday on June 23 and Carson Daly's 41st birthday on June 22, keep reading to find out! ...

'The Karate Kid' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Gary Susman on June 06, 2014
Sorry, Jaden Smith, but to a generation of moviegoers, the Karate Kid will always be Daniel-san, a.k.a. Ralph Macchio, the star of the original "Karate Kid." Released 30 years ago this week (on June 22, 1984), "The Karate Kid" hit pop culture with the force of a flying-crane kick to the chin. It launched a franchise that included three sequels (as well as Smith's 2010 reboot), made stars out of...

'Speed' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on June 06, 2014
Who knew that a simple story about a "bus that couldn't slow down" would have such traction, 20 years later? The action film, also known as "Die Hard on a Bus," has had its share of detractors but it's also just ridiculously watchable. Try finding a week when it isn't on TNT. When "Speed" opened on June 10, 1994, it earned a respectable $121 million in the U.S. alone, making it the eighth...

​'Ghostbusters' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Gary Susman on June 06, 2014
Who you gonna call? For 30 years, since the release of "Ghostbusters" on June 8, 1984, the supernatural exterminators have been among the most reliable of film stars; after all, the movie and its 1989 sequel seem to have been looping on TV continuously for three decades. Still, plans for a reunion have been stymied -- by a long script development process, by Bill Murray's reluctance to...

'Sixteen Candles' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on May 05, 2014
"Sixteen Candles," which debuted in theaters May 4, 1984, was the start of so many great things: It made Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall stars, it helped launch The Brat Pack and it might have been the first place you ever saw future stars John Cusack, Joan Cusack, and Jami Gertz. It also introduced a new talent for tapping teen angst: John Hughes, who would go on to write, direct,...

'Mean Girls' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on April 04, 2014
Although "Mean Girls" is a mere 10 years old, it's such a pop culture staple it's as much of a classic as its older cinematic stepsister, "Heathers." Let's count all the ways "Mean Girls" has enriched our lives since it hit theaters on April 30, 2004. We regularly tell our friends to "get in loser, we're going shopping." And when isn't "Boo, you whore?" an appropriate response? We've also...

'Say Anything' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Gary Susman on April 04, 2014
You couldn't make "Say Anything" today. Lloyd Dobler would be standing outside Diane Court's house holding up his iPhone... nah, it just wouldn't work. "Say Anything," which opened 25 years ago this week (on April 14, 1989), was definitely a movie of its time. In addition to that iconic moment where Lloyd uses his boombox to serenade Diane with Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes," it's the movie...

'Heathers' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on March 03, 2014
When it debuted on March 31, 1989, "Heathers" proved to be a box-office disappointment, failing to earn back even half of its $3 million budget. Twenty-five years later, it's a bona fide cult hit, with lines like "F*** me gently with a chainsaw" and "What is your damage?" a permanent part of pop culture. Dozens of high-school comedies owe their existence to "Heathers," most notably "Mean...

'The Matrix' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on March 03, 2014
It's hard to appreciate how revolutionary the "bullet time" special effects were when "The Matrix" debuted on March 31, 1999, since nearly every action movie immediately following it ripped it off. No one expected this blend of sci-fi and martial-arts (and guns, lots of guns) would be such a massive hit, or raise the bar for action-movie fight scenes to unheard-of-heights. The film earned more...

'Police Academy' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Gary Susman on March 03, 2014
How beloved was "Police Academy"? The cop comedy, which opened 30 years ago this month (March 23, 1984), didn't just make stars out of Steve Guttenberg and Michael Winslow and launch a franchise that lasted through seven movies and two TV series. It also became such a pop cultural touchstone that it earned a mention in a 1995 "Simpsons" episode, where Homer, angry at Bart for stealing, bellows,...

'Four Weddings and a Funeral' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on March 03, 2014
Twenty years ago, "Four Weddings and a Funeral," a charming little romantic comedy about a group of friends who attend wedding after wedding but can't seem to find true love themselves, became the highest-grossing British film in history. It earned more than $245 million worldwide, a number that's since been eclipsed ("Skyfall" currently holds the record). Besides boffo box office, this movie...

'Splash' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Posted By Sharon Knolle on March 03, 2014
Everett "Splash," the sweet story of a man who falls in love with a mermaid, turns 30 this year. Since then, star Tom Hanks has gone on to become one of Hollywood's favorite leading men and the name "Madison" went from being just a famous avenue to one of the most popular girl's names in the U.S. and England. The movie was the first from Disney's Touchstone label, one that allowed them to...

'Spinal Tap' Cast: Where Are They Now? (PHOTOS)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on March 03, 2014
Everett When "This Is Spinal Tap" opened on March 2, 1984, it made a modest $4.7 million, but the cast and crew behind this "rockumentary" likely had no idea what an oft-quoted, cultural touchstone it would become. ("This one goes to 11.") At the time, maybe the send-up of big-hair heavy metal bands was too close to reality, and many moviegoers thought Spinal Tap was a real band. Actually,...
