Where Are They Now?

'7th Heaven' Turns 15: Where Are They Now?

by AOL TV Staff, posted Aug 26th 2011 9:00AM
7th Heaven 150 episodesIt might be hard to believe, but Fri., Aug. 26 marks the 15th anniversary of the premiere of '90s TV drama '7th Heaven.'

Set in the fictional town of Glen Oak, Calif., '7th Heaven' followed the adventures of Rev. Eric Camden, his wife, Annie, and his seven mischievous children. The seemingly squeaky-clean preacher's family had flaws, but were exceedingly generous -- they collected stray, troubled teenagers like some people collect cats.

Although '7th Heaven' wasn't one of The WB's original shows when the network debuted in 1995, it premiered a year later and ultimately outlived the channel itself.

So, what have the Camdens been up to since '7th Heaven' went off the air in 2007? You've probably seen Jessica Biel around, but check out our gallery below and find out what your other favorite cast members, including Stephen Collins, David Gallagher and Catherine Hicks, are doing now.

'Rugrats' 20th Anniversary: Where Are They Now?

by Laura Prudom, posted Aug 11th 2011 9:15AM
Here's something to make the millennials in the crowd feel positively ancient: Today marks the 20th anniversary of the day 'Rugrats' first premiered on Nickelodeon.

Don't pretend you don't remember the misadventures of Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil, and Angelica -- 'Rugrats' ran for 14 years (the longest-lived Nicktoon to date, premiering alongside 'Doug' and 'Ren and Stimpy'), spawned three movies, countless video games, an 'All Grown Up' spin-off, and remains the only Nickelodeon show to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In a 1995 TV Guide interview, Steven Spielberg described the show as "sort of a TV 'Peanuts' of our time," and IGN ranked it #92 in their list of Top 100 Animated Series. Not bad for a bunch of babies who can't even talk, right?

We at AOL TV are big fans of Where Are They Now? retrospectives, and we didn't want to let a little thing like fictional characters stop us from imagining where our favorite small-screen toddlers might have ended up twenty years down the line. Join us after the jump for our take on what the gang might be doing now that they really are all grown up.

The Cast of 'Sisters': Where Are They Now?

by Kim Potts, posted May 11th 2011 10:00AM
What were you doing 20 years ago today? Perhaps preparing to watch a new NBC drama called 'Sisters'?

It was two decades ago that the Emmy-winning series premiered, earning critical acclaim and a loyal fanbase, while helping to launch the careers of up-and-comers like Ashley Judd and Paul Rudd. The series also earned a certain TV pilot veteran his shot at another TV drama that would send him on the path to big-screen stardom and an Oscar.

The cast of 'Sisters'
The show -- created by producers Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, who also created the U.S. adaptation of 'Queer As Folk' -- revolved around the four sisters of the Reed family, daughters of a workaholic, adulterous doctor who referred to his girls by male names (because he had wanted sons) and an alcoholic mother who'd turned to the bottle to deal with her physically and emotionally MIA husband.

Before They Were Stars: 12 Celebs Who Got Their Start on 'Star Search'

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 14th 2011 3:00PM

This week's premiere of WE TV's reality series 'Sinbad: It's Just Family' clued us in to what the comedian is up to these days, and also got us wondering: What other stars got their showbiz starts on 'Star Search'?

This Where Are They Now? feature is a bit of a reversal on AOL TV's usual WATNs, because this one is less about about where they are now as it is where they were then. Did you know that Dave Chappelle and Norm McDonald tried to get laughs in the comedy competition, for example? Or that Christina Aguilera and Beyoncé got their starts in the show's talent portion?

Read on for 12 video clips of celebs you may or may not remember from their 'Star Search' days...

'Perfect Strangers' Turns 25! Where Is the Cast Now?

by Kim Potts, posted Mar 25th 2011 1:30PM
Bronson Pinchot, Mark Linn-Baker, Perfect StrangersThe fact that today is the 25th anniversary of the premiere of 'Perfect Strangers'? It makes us want to do the Dance of Joy!

That, of course, is the memorable full-body celebration involving leg kicks, jumping up and down and shouting "Hey!" and ending with cousin Larry (Mark Linn-Baker) leaping into the arms of his Myposian cousin Balki (Bronson Pinchot), whose "Now we are so happy, we do the dance of joy!" exclamation always launched the dance.

The Dance of Joy was one of the best reasons for tuning into the silly, but sweet entry into ABC's sadly defunct TGIF lineup of Friday night sitcoms, in fact. 'Perfect Strangers' revolved around just that: two strangers, Chicagoan Larry and his distant cousin Balki, who became roomies when Balki left his Mediterranean country home and showed up on Larry's Windy City doorstep.

'Roseanne' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Roseanne Oprah Roseanne Barr returned to 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' last week for the first time in 12 years and resolved her "feud" with Oprah (or, more like discovered there was no feud).

Barr believed Winfrey was "pissed" at her for various crimes, including: their difference in opinion during the 2008 presidential campaign; cheating during an arm-wrestling match on Barr's talk show; and Barr's tendency to "piss everybody off sooner or later." Winfrey was clueless about these offenses, and the two buried the non-existent hatchet.

Winfrey also created a virtual 'Roseanne' cast reunion, interviewing John Goodman by satellite from New York and featuring segments from the rest of the Conner family.

'Roseanne,' which ran for nine seasons from 1988 to 1997, was a sarcastic but genuine look at a working-class family. The show was an instant hit and an awards magnet, but its popularity never led it to water down its stark portrayal of the Conners' money troubles or avoid taboo subjects such as teen sex, birth control, alcoholism, abortion and domestic violence.

Arrested Development
It's been five years since the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning family comedy 'Arrested Development' left the airwaves, and, though we say this with a little grain of salt, it looks like the long-rumored big-screen version of the series is finally a go, maybe even for later this year.

And while we can't wait to see those wacky Bluths back in action, it's not like the cast members have been sitting around twiddling their thumbs since the 'Arrested Development' finale aired on Feb. 10, 2006. In fact, they've been a pretty busy bunch, including many projects in which they've continued to be co-stars ...

High School Musical
It was a mere five years ago, on Jan. 20, 2006, that 'High School Musical' hit the Disney Channel airwaves, making Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens the king and queen of the teen dream set, becoming the most successful movie in the cable network's history, nabbing a pair of Emmys and sparking TV and big-screen sequels, all along the way to becoming a true pop culture phenomenon.

You may have heard what "Zanessa" has been up to post-'HSM,' but, in honor of the original movie's anniversary, we're catching up with what the rest of the East High Wildcats have been doing ...

'Magnum P.I.' Cast: Where Are They Now?

It's been 30 years since Tom Selleck introduced us to his Hawaii-dwellin', Tigers cap-wearin', Ferrari-borrowin', generally-mooching private investigator Thomas Magnum.

'Magnum P.I.' premiered Dec. 11, 1980 and ran for eight seasons on CBS -- and was a top-20 rated show for the first five. It followed formal Naval intelligence officer-turned-P.I. Magnum as he lived on the palatial estate of wealthy writer Robin Masters; the estate was operated by fussy Jonathan Higgins, who may or may not have been the same person.

'Queer As Folk' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Queer As FolkThe groundbreaking American version of 'Queer as Folk' ran for five seasons (the U.K. original aired for 10 episodes), and, with Dec. 3 marking 'Queer as Folk's' 10th anniversary, we're taking the opportunity to check in with what the show's stars have been up to since 'Queer As Folk' wrapped in 2005.

The British original -- created by 'Doctor Who' revival creator Russell T. Davies -- starred future 'Undeclared' and 'Sons of Anarchy' star Charlie Hunnam and 'The Wire' scene stealer Aidan Gillen and debuted in 1999.

And the American remake, starring Gale Harold, Hal Sparks, newbie Randy Harrison and Emmy-winning TV vet Sharon Gless -- followed the next year, and made a splash on Showtime with its randy, funny tales (and very graphic sex scenes) about the loves and lives of a group of gay Pittsburgh pals.

'Bosom Buddies' Cast: Where Are They Now?

by Kim Potts, posted Nov 24th 2010 3:00PM
Bosom BuddiesWhen I first moved to New York, I lived in a building called The Webster, a professional-women-only building where, for reals, dudes were not permitted past the lobby, and enforcement of that rule was taken seriously.

It was clean, affordable and made the big city a little less scary for a newbie, and when I would tell friends about the place, I eventually shorthanded the description to, "You know, it's like on 'Bosom Buddies.'"

There were no men in disguise hanging at The Webster -- as far as I knew, anyway -- but that idea made for the high-concept, charming, sadly short-lived sitcom 'Bosom Buddies,' the show that sparked the careers of Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari (who, let's be honest, while charming, also made for two of the more unattractive men in drag ever).

'Days of Our Lives' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Days of Our LivesHappy 45th Birthday, 'Days of Our Lives'! In a daytime TV landscape where even decades-old classics aren't necessarily safe from the chopping block, the sand in 'DOOL's' hourglass has kept on falling, making the show currently the second-longest running soap opera on TV (after 'General Hospital').

In honor of that feat, and the drama's birthday this past Nov. 8 (which also marked the first day the soap will be broadcast in HD), we're catching up with some of the show's biggest stars of the past (and, given the show's habit of bring former Salemites home, probably the future, too).

'Ed' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Ed cast
Last week marked the 10th anniversary of 'Ed,' which certainly has a plum spot on our list of great shows that were canceled too soon. The fine dramedy that revolved around a barrister/bowling alley proprietor and his quirky fellow Stuckeyville-ians premiered on NBC on Oct. 8, 2000. And though its four seasons whizzed by all too quickly, we can't say we hardly knew ye, 'Ed' ... in fact, we knew ye, and loved ye, quite well.

'The Andy Griffith Show' Cast: Where Are They Now?

by Pat Gallagher, posted Oct 1st 2010 2:30PM
Andy Griffith Show'The Andy Griffith Show' is one of the most beloved TV sitcoms of all time. Originally televised on CBS from Oct. 3, 1960 to Apr. 1, 1968, the show ended its final season at No. 1 and consistently ranked in the top 10. More recently, the show has taken on a new life in TV Land reruns.

Andy Griffith had already made a name for himself in movies like 'A Face in the Crowd' and 'No Time for Sergeants,' when he agreed to star in his own TV show as the widowed Sheriff Andy Taylor, who didn't have to carry a gun in the small country town of Mayberry, N.C.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of 'The Andy Griffith Show,' we thought we'd catch up with the cast members -- arguably the best character actors in the business -- who appeared on the show over the years, and who'll be forever embedded in the minds and memories of millions of Mayberry fans.
