In 1988, a new kind of sitcom debuted: 'Roseanne,' created by and starring Roseanne Barr as the matriarch of the working-class Conner family living in Illinois. With her husband Dan, played by John Goodman, Roseanne tried to juggle work and raising her kids properly while dealing with more relatable problems faced by families, like poverty, drug abuse, and teen pregnancy. The show ended its long run in 1997, and today we take a look back at the cast 17 years later to see what they're up to now.
Where Are They Now?
David O. Russell's 1999 film, 'Three Kings,' starred the awesome trio of George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube, and told the story of three soldiers who planned a gold heist during the 1991 Iraqi uprising at the end of the Persian Gulf War -- but things don't quite go as planned. With Russell's 'American Hustle' and Wahlberg's new war movie, 'Lone Survivor,' currently in theaters, and Clooney about to release his 'Monuments Men' in February, we revisit the cast of this acclaimed satirical hit 14 years later and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1998 and based on Hunter S. Thompson's classic novel of the same name, 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' starred Johnny Depp as Raoul Duke, a journalist traveling to Las Vegas on a drug-fueled trip with his friend Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) to cover a motorcycle race. Inspired by Thompson's real-life exploits and directed by Terry Gilliam, the film, which attracted divisive reactions at the time of its release, has become a cult classic and earned a coveted place in the Criterion collection. 16 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
In 1994, directors Joel and Ethan Coen teamed up with their pal Sam Raimi for 'The Hudsucker Proxy.' Co-written by Raimi, the film follows inexperienced small-town business school graduate Norville Barnes (Tim Robbins), who is suddenly placed at the head of Hudsucker Industries when the company's founder commits suicide. Working as his proxy, Norville must scramble to help keep the company afloat and navigate the world of ruthless corporate businessmen. Nineteen years later, we take a look back at the cast of this screwball comedy and see where they are now.
Released in 1993, 'Demolition Man' tells the story of John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone), a loose cannon cop, and Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes), a violent criminal -- both cryogenically frozen in Los Angeles in 1996. Flash forward to 2032: the city has become a peaceful, non-violent place, but Phoenix has escaped prison, and there's only one man tough enough to stop him: the city's naive police force awakens Spartan to help put a stop to Phoenix's madness once and for all, teaming him up with a Lieutenant (Sandra Bullock) to get him acclimated to the modern era of law enforcement.
20 years later, we revisit the cast of this wacky, satirical action flick and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1996 and directed by Ben Stiller, 'The Cable Guy' was a dark comedy that showed audiences a different side of Jim Carrey. The actor played Chip Douglas, a lonely and disturbed cable guy raised on TV, who desperately tries to befriend Steven (Matthew Broderick), but when Steven doesn't readily accept Chip's zealous and intrusive overtures, he finds that there are sinister consequences. Produced by Judd Apatow (who didn't receive credit for the work he did on the script at the time), the film was a moderate success and went on to become a cult classic. Seventeen years later, we're revisiting the cast of the film to see what they're up to now.
In the aptly-titled 1990 holiday comedy 'Home Alone,' young Kevin McAllister (Macaulay Culkin) is accidentally left, well, home alone. When his family goes to France for their vacation, what begins as an adult-free party week for the 8 year-old boy turns into a battle when Kevin is forced to use his wits and cunning to defend the home from would-be burglars, played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. This wacky and heartwarming comedy became an instant holiday classic, spawning an immediate sequel -- and a few more lame, direct-to-DVD entries. Twenty-three years later, we check in with the cast of the film to see what they're up to now.
In 1996, action star Arnold Schwarzenegger teamed up with comedian Sinbad for the holiday comedy 'Jingle All the Way,' in which two rival fathers scramble to desperately procure a Turbo Man action figure for their sons on Christmas Eve -- the only problem is that it just so happens to be the hottest toy on the market. Inspired by the real-life horrors of holiday toy sell-outs and the parents who go to great (and traumatic) lengths to get their kids what their little hearts desire, this fun holiday film wasn't looked upon very fondly by audiences at the time, but has become something of a scrappy holiday classic in the years since. 17 years later and just in time for Christmas, we look back at the cast and see what they're up to these days.
Released in 1988, 'Scrooged' was a darkly comedic take on Charles Dickens' classic 'A Christmas Carol,' starring Bill Murray in the Ebenezer Scrooge role as Frank Cross, a cynical TV executive alienated from his family and unable to find real happiness. Struggling to put together a live production of 'A Christmas Carol' on Christmas Eve, Frank finds that his real life begins to resemble the story he's producing as three ghosts visit him throughout the evening to try and get him to change his ways before it's too late.
The film took Murray from battling ghosts in 'Ghostbusters' to learning lessons from them, and over time it's become a holiday comedy classic. 25 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
Released in 1992, 'A League of Their Own' told a fictionalized version of the true story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League -- a league of female baseball players created as a gimmick when World War II threatened to shut down Major League Baseball. Starring Geena Davis and Tom Hanks, the film followed the triumphs and trials, both personal and public, of the ladies' league, as they went from unknowns to major stars. 21 years later, we take a look back at this heartwarming comedy drama and see what the cast is up to now.
