See the Cast of ‘The Three Musketeers’ Then and Now
Released in 1993, Disney’s version of ‘The Three Musketeers’ starred an ensemble of ’90s talent including Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland and Chris O’Donnell in the classic tale of D’Artagnan and his quest to join the legendary Musketeers, a trio of men sworn to protect the King of France. The film, which reunited ‘Young Guns’ stars Sheen and Sutherland, was a success at the box office (but poorly received by critics). Now, 21 years later, we take a look back at the cast and see what they’re up to these days.
Chris O’Donnell, D’Artagnan
Then: Brad Pitt and Stephen Dorff turned down the role of young D’Artagnan, which went to emerging star Chris O’Donnell, who previously gained notice for roles in ‘School Ties’ and ‘Scent of a Woman.’ D’Artagnan’s character sets out to join the legendary Three Musketeers.
Now: O’Donnell went on to star in ‘Mad Love’ and ‘Circle of Friends’ before landing the role of Robin in ‘Batman Forever’ and ‘Batman and Robin.’ He also appeared in ‘The Bachelor,’ ‘Kinsey’ and ‘Max Payne.’ O’Donnell guest starred on shows like ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘The Practice,’ and had a recurring role on ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ He currently stars on ‘NCIS: Los Angeles.’
Kiefer Sutherland, Athos
Then: Kiefer Sutherland, star of films like ‘The Lost Boys’ and ‘Stand by Me,’ played Athos, a former nobleman who was once married to Lady Sabine de Winter, but he betrayed her to the authorities when he found out she was marked for execution.
Now: Sutherland went on to appear in several films, including ‘A Time to Kill,’ ‘Freeway,’ ‘Dark City,’ ‘L.A. Confidential’ and ‘Phone Booth.’ He played Jack Bauer on the hit Fox series ’24′ from 2001 to 2010, and he’ll reprise that role for a new limited series called ’24: Live Another Day.’ He also recently appeared in the films ‘Melancholia,’ ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ and ‘Pompeii’ (out this week).
Charlie Sheen, Aramis
Then: Charlie Sheen, who previously starred with Kiefer Sutherland in ‘Young Guns,’ played Aramis, who was once trained as a priest by Cardinal Richelieu and who takes death very seriously.
Now: Sheen, who starred in the ‘Hot Shots!’ and ‘Major League’ films, went on to star in ‘The Chase’ and ‘Money Talks.’ He appeared as himself in several films, including ‘Being John Malkovich,’ ‘Due Date’ and more recently in ‘Scary Movie 5.’ He starred with Jon Cryer on ‘Two and a Half Men’ from 2003 to 2011 before leaving to star on the new series ‘Anger Management,’ and he also recently appeared in the films ‘A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III’ and ‘Machete Kills.’
Oliver Platt, Porthos
Then: Oliver Platt played Porthos, the indulgent Musketeer who is fond of food, wine and women, and is often arrogant. Platt previously appeared in ‘Flatliners’ with Kiefer Sutherland.
Now: Platt went on to reunite with O’Donnell in ‘Kinsey,’ and you may have seen him in the films ‘Ready to Rumble,’ ‘The Ice Harvest,’ ‘Frost/Nixon,’ ‘Year One’ and ’2012.’ He starred on the Showtime series ‘The Big C’ with Laura Linney from 2010 to 2013, and had a recurring role on HBO’s ‘Bored to Death.’ More recently he appeared in the films ‘The Oranges’ and ‘Ginger and Rosa,’ and can be seen next in ‘Kill the Messenger’ and ‘Mortdecai.’
Tim Curry, Cardinal Richelieu
Then: Tim Curry played the evil Cardinal Richelieu, who plans to assassinate King Louis XIII so he can take the throne. Curry was known for roles in films like ‘Legend,’ ‘Clue’ and ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show.’
Now: Curry went on to star in the films ‘The Shadow,’ ‘Congo,’ ‘Scary Movie 2′ and reunited with O’Donnell and Platt in ‘Kinsey.’ These days he’s mostly a voice actor — he voiced Nigel Thornberry on the hit Nickelodeon series (and its follow-up film) ‘The Wild Thornberrys,’ and you may have heard his voice in the shows ‘Regular Show,’ ‘Transformers: Rescue Bots’ and ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars,’ to name a few. His last live-action appearances were back in 2010 — in the film ‘Burke and Hare’ and a two-episode guest spot on ‘Criminal Minds.’
Rebecca De Mornay, Milady De Winter/Sabine
Then: Rebecca De Mornay, known for roles in ‘Risky Business’ and ‘The Hand That Rocks the Cradle,’ played Milady De Winter, Athos’ former wife who now works for Cardinal Richelieu as a spy and assassin.
Now: De Mornay also appeared in the films ‘Identity,’ ‘Lords of Dogtown,’ ‘Wedding Crashers’ and the 2010 remake of the classic horror B-movie ‘Mother’s Day.’ She had a recurring role on the short-lived HBO series ‘John From Cincinnati,’ and more recently appeared in the films ‘Apartment 1303′ and ‘American Reunion.’

Then: Michael Wincott played Captain Rochefort, a former Musketeer who was cast out when he led another guard (D’Artagnan’s father) to his death; he now works for Richelieu. Wincott previously appeared in films like ‘The Doors’ and ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.’
Now: Wincott continued to take dark roles in films like ‘The Crow,’ ‘Strange Days,’ ‘Alien: Resurrection’ and ‘Along Came a Spider.’ He recently played notorious serial killer Ed Gein in the ‘Hitchcock’ biopic with Anthony Hopkins, and can be seen next in the film ‘Knight of Cups.’ He’ll also appear in the limited miniseries ’24: Live Another Day,’ reuniting him with his ‘Three Musketeers’ co-star Kiefer Sutherland.
