Released in 1999, Spike Jonze's 'Being John Malkovich' starred John Cusack as a struggling puppeteer who finds a portal into actor John Malkovich's brain. The clever meta-fantasy dramedy was a hit, and earned Oscar nominations for Best Director for Jonze, Best Screenplay for the wildly imaginative Charlie Kaufman's script, and Best Supporting Actress for Catherine Keener. This year, the film celebrates its 15th anniversary, so join us for a look back at the cast of the film as we see what they're up to now.
Where Are They Now?
Released in 1992, 'Sister Act' starred Whoopi Goldberg as a lounge singer from Reno, put in protective custody and forced to stay at a convent, where she must pretend to be a nun to evade a dangerous mob boss. The film was a smash hit and inspired a sequel, released the following year, and a musical that went on to debut on Broadway in 2011. 22 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved classic comedy and see what they're up to now.
In 1996, Adam Sandler followed up his hit comedy 'Billy Madison' with 'Happy Gilmore,' about a wannabe hockey player who realizes he can use his talents on the golf course to help save his grandma from losing her home. The film was another huge success for Sandler, and helped certify his status as an A-list comedy star and a guaranteed box office cash cow. 18 years later, we revisit the cast of this modern classic and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1995 and directed by Paul Verhoeven, who previously gave us classics like 'RoboCop' and 'Total Recall,' 'Showgirls' was a delightful trainwreck of a movie, and an instant so-bad-it's-awesome classic. Former 'Saved by the Bell' star Elizabeth Berkeley starred in the leading role -- looking to shed her good girl image like so many actresses before her, Berkeley played Nomi Malone, a young woman who goes to Las Vegas with dreams of becoming a famous dancer, but finds that those dreams come with a major price. With a cast bolstered by Gina Gershon and Kyle MacLachlan, 'Showgirls' flopped both critically and commercially, but has gone on to become something of a trashy cult classic. 19 years later, we look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1990, Paul Verhoeven's 'Total Recall' starred action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger as Douglas Quaid, a man who visits a company that specializes in implanting false vacation memories. Through a series of disastrous events, Quaid soon finds himself visiting Mars as a secret agent on a dangerous mission -- or does he? The film, which notoriously went through 42 screenplay drafts, was a huge commercial success, and has gone on to become one of the most beloved sci-fi movies of all time. Twenty-four years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Released in 2000 and based on the book by Nick Hornby, 'High Fidelity' starred John Cusack as Rob Gordon, a record store owner and music obsessive who is dumped by his girlfriend. Rob subsequently seeks out his previous girlfriends to figure out what he's doing wrong in his life. With a supporting cast that included the likes of Jack Black and Catherine Zeta-Jones, 'High Fidelity' was a modest success at the box office and loved by critics, going on to become a beloved romantic dramedy favorite in the years that followed. Fourteen years later, we revisit the cast of this contemporary classic and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1991, 'My Girl' tells the story of 11 year-old Vada Sultenfuss (Anna Chlumsky), who is coming of age in the summer of 1972 with her best friend, Thomas J., played by young star Macaulay Culkin. The film, which also reunited 'Trading Places' stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd, became an instant classic and a hit among critics and audiences alike. 23 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved movie and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1989, Cameron Crowe's 'Say Anything...' starred a baby-faced John Cusack as Lloyd Dobler, an average high school student who falls for lonely valedictorian Diane Court (Ione Skye), and the pair spend their summer together before Diane heads off to college. 25 years later, we're revisiting the cast of one of the most cherished teen romantic dramedies of all time.
Way back before they were household names, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon co-wrote and starred in 'Good Will Hunting.' Released in 1997, the film followed Will Hunting (Damon), a brilliant but troubled young man working as a janitor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who, along with the help of a therapist and a mathematics professor, works to achieve his full potential. The film was a critical and commercial success, and earned Damon and Affleck an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay that year. Now, 17 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to these days.
Released in 1997, 'Con Air' starred Nicolas Cage as Cameron Poe, a war veteran sent to prison for using excessive force on a drunk man who tried to assault his wife. Granted parole and placed on a prison transport plane, Cameron finds getting home isn't that easy when the fellow inmates stage a coup and take over the plane. 'Con Air' was a massive box office success and became an instant action -- and Nicolas Cage -- classic. Seventeen years later we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
