Released in 1995, 'The Usual Suspects' follows a police investigation of a massacre on a boat and the quest to find a mysterious and near-mythical mob figure known as Keyser Soze. Directed by Bryan Singer (known now for his work on the 'X-Men' films) and scripted by Christopher McQuarrie (Singer's frequent collaborator, who would also work on the Tom Cruise projects 'Valkyrie' and 'Jack Reacher'), 'The Usual Suspects' has been heralded as one of the greatest contemporary crime films. 19 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Where Are They Now?
In 1997, James Cameron unleashed 'Titanic,' his epic blockbuster about the ill-fated maiden voyage of the notorious ship and the fictional love story between Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet). The film was a smashing success and was nominated for 14 Academy Awards, winning 11, including statues for Best Picture and Best Director for Cameron. In 2012, Cameron released a 3D version of the film earning it another $343 million worldwide, taking its total earnings to date well over $2 billion. 14 years later, we celebrate one of the most successful films in history by taking a look back at the cast and seeing where they are now.
Released in 2000, 'Bring It On' followed Torrance Shipman (Kirsten Dunst) who inherits the title of captain of her cheerleading squad and endeavors to lead them to their sixth consecutive win at the National Cheerleading Competition. There's only one problem: their newest recruit, the rebellious Missy (Eliza Dushku), informs the new captain that they've been using stolen routines to win the title for years, unbeknownst to Torrance.
'Bring It On' was a hit at the box office, and received somewhat positive reviews for its smart script and spoofing of cheerleading culture. The film has gone on to gain a cult following on home media over the years, and spawned four direct-to-video sequels. Now, 14 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved teen comedy to see what they're up to these days.
'Blossom' debuted on NBC in 1991, giving 'tween and teen girls a new character to relate to: Blossom Russo, a teenage girl who lived with her two brothers and her father, and learned life lessons about abuse, drugs, and divorce -- not your typical family sitcom, to say the least. But Blossom wasn't your average girl, either, and that's what made her special. She was quirky, had cool fashion sense and, above all, she was relateable. The show ended almost 20 years ago, so join us for a look at the cast of this classic sitcom and see what they're up to now!
Released in 2001 and based on the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon of the same name, 'Josie and the Pussycats' follows a girl band whose sudden rise to fame is engineered by a record label using their music to brainwash teenagers. The bubbly satirical film starred Rachael Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson, and Tara Reid, and although it was a failure at the box office, it went on to find a following over the years on home video and cable, becoming something of a cult classic in its own right -- more like a "pop-cult classic." 13 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1989, 'Field of Dreams' starred Kevin Costner as a struggling Iowa farmer who, upon hearing voices, digs up his crops and builds a baseball field. Soon after, the ghosts of the Chicago Black Sox come to play ball, and the farmer helps inspire the people of his small town. The film was nominated for three Oscars, including Best Picture, and has become a beloved classic. Twenty-five years later we revisit the cast of 'Field of Dreams' and see what they're doing now.
Steven Spielberg's 'Jurassic Park' first hit theaters in 1993 and introduced audiences to a mind-blowing world of dinosaurs, putting us on the edge of our seats with incredible effects. The film followed a billionaire who creates the world's first dinosaur theme park using extinct dino DNA, and invites a team of experts to tour the park, hoping to get their approval to win over investors -- and that's when things predictably go very, very wrong. Now, 21 years later and with a third sequel in the works, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Way back before Shia LaBeouf was the star of the 'Transformers' franchise, and way back before he was the controversial actor stirring up trouble with plagiarism allegations, he got his star on the Disney channel sitcom 'Even Stevens.' LaBeouf played Louis, who often clashed with his older sister Ren in the suburbs of Sacramento, and the show followed the two and their lives at home and at school with their friends. Now that LaBeouf has announced his retirement, we decided to take a look back at the show that started his whole career. Join us as we revisit the cast of the series, which ended in 2003, and see what they're all up to these days.

Eighteen years later, we revisit the cast of this edgy classic and see what they're up to now.
James Cameron's 1994 action comedy film 'True Lies' starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as Harry Trasker, a man leading a double life: at home he is a boring computer salesman to his wife and daughter, but in reality he's an agent for the U.S. government's counter-terrorism task force. With his work distracting him from his home life and his wife flirting with another man, Harry's faced with his most dangerous mission yet.
