10 Former TV Child Stars Who Aren't Crackheads

Jason Bateman in Extract'Extract,' the new Mike Judge comedy opening in theaters this weekend, stars Jason Bateman as a bored factory manager. Those of us who grew up on '80s TV are thrilled that former child star Bateman's become such a success as an adult -- especially since we still think of him as Ricky Schroder's rambunctious best friend on 'Silver Spoons.' (Did anyone else watch 'It's Your Move' religiously? Just us?)

It's quite a feat for Bateman to have come this far, as the list of former child stars is littered with tales of drug abuse, DUIs, anorexia, obscurity and death. And then there are those who pop up in the news for doing random things, such as Soleil Moon Frye resurrecting Punky Brewster to celebrate her massive Twitter following.

But why dwell on the negative and the bizarre? Here's a list of 10 formerly famous tykes who bucked the odds and emerged from childhood TV stardom -- often after long periods in which they took time off or struggled to find work -- and became famous adults in their own right. We couldn't be more proud.

Candace Cameron (Bure) returning to television on Make It or Break It tonight

Candace Cameron BureWe all watched her grow up on Full House and then we watched her disappear from our television screens, seemingly forever. I don't know if I'll go so far as to say Candace Cameron was to the early '90s what Alyssa Milano was to the late '80s, but that's because I'll be forever loyal to my boyhood crush on Samantha Micelli. But while Milano has been on the airwaves virtually every season since the question of Who's the Boss? was answered when the network canceled it, not so for Cameron.

She got married and went off to raise her kids for ten years, giving us only a few appearances in that time. Now 33 and ready to get back to work full time, Candace Cameron Bure will be one of the stars in ABC Family's gymnastic-themed Make It or Break It, premiering tonight at 9pm ET.

'Make It Or Break It' Interview With Candace Cameron Bure & Peri Gilpin

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 19th 2009 6:00PM
Make It Or Break ItFor all the attention gymnastics gets every Olympics, it's about time someone made a show about it. But ABC Family's new original series 'Make It Or Break It' (premieres Mon., June 22 at 9PM ET) isn't a reality show -- it's a scripted drama that centers on aspiring gymnasts. Stories revolve around the high level of competition in the sport and how the pressure affects not just the girls, but their families as well.

The show also marks a return to series television for two TV favorites -- 'Full House' alum Candace Cameron Bure, who plays the girlfriend of one of the girl's dads, and Peri Gilpin, of 'Frasier' fame, who portrays a mom of one of the young gymnasts. We got them to admit that neither was ever a gymnast herself ... either from lack of opportunity or just plain lack of skill (ahem, Peri).

AOL TV got the exclusive scoop from both stars on their new show and took a look back at their most iconic roles -- and the friendships and hairdos they've kept since. -- By Maggie Furlong
