In the 1988 sequel to 'Pee-wee's Big Adventure,' Paul Reubens reprises the role of Pee-wee Herman in a completely new context. This time around, Pee-wee is a farmer who takes up with circus folk when a big storm lands them in his backyard. Instead of his trusty bike, Pee-wee now pals around with a talking pig. (It's a little strange. The '80s, folks!) 25 years later, we take a look back at this film and see where the cast is now.
Where Are They Now?
Recently, an AFI archive video was released in which Dustin Hoffman talked about how much he learned from playing Dorothy Michaels in the film 'Tootsie.' In the film, Hoffman plays a difficult actor who no one wants to work with, so he hatches a scheme to pretend to be a woman in order to get more work. Over 30 years later, we take a look back at this landmark film and see what the cast is up to these days.
In 1984, a little movie called 'Footloose' captivated audiences with its tale of a tiny conservative town that banned dancing, and the one guy who gave them their groove back. Based on a true story (sort of), 'Footloose' was released almost 30 years ago and has since spawned a musical and a 2011 remake. Join us for a look back at the cast of this classic flick and see where they are now.
Released in 1984, 'The Karate Kid' told the story of young Daniel, a teenager who learns the Japanese art of karate from his neighbor Mr. Miyagi (the late, great Pat Morita) to help defend himself from school bullies. Now, almost 30 years later, we take a look back at the cast of this film and see what they're up to these days.
Released way back in 1988, John Landis' 'Coming to America' became an instant comedy classic. Starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall in two of their most iconic roles, the movie follows an African prince who disowns his royalty in search of a down-to-earth American wife to avoid the marriage his parents have arranged. Now, 25 years later, we take a look back at the cast and see what they're up to these days.
Based on the classic comic-book character, the 1996 film 'The Phantom' starred Billy Zane as a seemingly immortal superhero who used his powers to fight crime. Sounds a lot like most of the superheroes we love these days, but comic-book movies of the '90s were definitely a little (okay, a lot) sillier. Seventeen years later, we take a look back at the cast of this campy superhero flick and see what they're up to now.
The hit film also starred the late Heath Ledger in his second high-profile role. With the Fourth of July in mind, we thought it'd be fun to look back at the cast of this film 13 years ago, and see where they're at now.
Making a movie based on an amusement park ride doesn't necessarily seem like a recipe for success. But you can't argue with the results of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise, which was spun off from the Disney parks ride of the same name. In addition to being one of the most successful franchises in movie history, the films helped turn Johnny Depp from a quirky character actor into one of the biggest superstars in the world.
A lot of that success has to do with the first movie, 2003's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl,' being really, really good. With Depp and director Gore Verbinski reuniting for 'The Lone Ranger,' we thought it was time to see what those 'Pirates' are up to now.
