Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader will appear together in 'Avengers 2: Age of Ultron,' but way back in 1987, the two actors starred together in a much different film: 'Less Than Zero,' based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis, in which a college student returns home to L.A. for the holidays to spend time with his ex-girlfriend and his junkie best friend. 26 years later, and with a reunion of sorts on the way, we thought now would be a good time to take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Where Are They Now?
An elite special forces team led by Arnold Schwarzenegger's Dutch heads into the jungles of Central America on a mission to rescue hostages from guerrilla territory, only to encounter a superior race of alien hunters in the 1987 horror classic 'Predator.' 25 years later, we take a look back at the cast of this film to see what they were up to then, and where they are now.
Released in 2001 and based on the cult comic book of the same name by Daniel Clowes, 'Ghost World' follows best friends Enid and Rebecca (Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson) as they graduate high school and attempt to navigate adult life. Though the film wasn't a box office hit, 'Ghost World' has gained an immense cult following in the years since its release. 12 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
You know these guys -- chances are, you grew up watching them kick ass in some of the greatest action films of the '80s. These actors are legends in their own right who have spent years entertaining us as they killed aliens, fought terrorists, and even beat up on their fellow man. Today we take a look back at some of your favorite '80s action stars to see how far they've come since then.
Released in 1987, 'The Princess Bride' (based on the novel of the same name by William Goldman) became an instant classic with its clever and hilarious spin on fairy tales. The film is presented as a story told to a sick boy by his grandpa, about a princess named Buttercup, the scheme to have her kidnapped and murdered, and the stable boy who becomes her true prince. Twenty-five years later, we take a look back at the cast of one of the funniest films of all time and see where they are now.
Way back before 'Twilight' -- and Team Edward and all that sparkly nonsense -- we had a much different (and much campier) teen vampire movie: 1987's 'The Lost Boys,' a film that, like modern supernatural teen flicks, drew a parallel between the horrors of coming of age and the horrors of, well, real horror. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of this cult classic, we take a look back at the cast of the film to see where they were then and what they're up to now.
Released in 1987, 'Adventures in Babysitting' became an instant comedy classic. The film follows Chris (Elisabeth Shue), a teen who is ditched by her boyfriend and volunteers to babysit, unwittingly setting herself and her charges up for the most memorable and wacky night of their young lives. It's hard to believe the film was released 25 years ago, so join us as we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Everyone loves a good game show, and it takes a really special game show host to keep us engaged and excited -- they've gotta be charismatic and knowledgeable (and it doesn't hurt if they have great hair). We take a look back at some of your favorite TV game show hosts, from the super-classic to a few newer favorites, to see what they looked like back then, and what they're up to now.
It's hard to believe that Conan O'Brien has been making us laugh on late night television for 20 years. Though he currently hosts 'Conan' every weeknight on TBS, his first and most long-lasting show, 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien,' ran on NBC for 16 years -- from 1993 to 2009. Along with his pal Andy Richter and band leader Max Weinberg, Conan has been bringing wacky, fresh humor to late night TV for longer than some of our readers have been alive. Today we take a look back at Conan, his former writers, and some of the celebrities that appeared on the show before they were famous, to see where they were then and how far they've come now.
In 1998, a little stoner comedy by the name of 'Half Baked' was released and became an instant cult classic, still quoted by fans to this day. The film featured the comedic power of Dave Chappelle, Jim Breuer, Harland Williams, and many more in the story of a quartet of slacker friends who decide to get into the business of selling marijuana and unwittingly finds themselves in over their heads. 15 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they've been up to since then.
