Charlie Sheen as Topper Harley:

Charlie Sheen did such movies as The Three Musketeers, Major League II, Money Talks, The Big Bounce and Scary Movie 3. (with a small spot in 4, as well.) He took over for Michael J. Fox in Spin City and currently stars on Two and a Half Men.

Lloyd did some television work after the Hot Shots franchise (such as Seinfeld, The Outer limits), he also played in movies like Honey I blew up the Kid and of course, Mafia!. Lloyd passed away in March of 1998, which boggles my mind that he's been gone for almost ten years now.

NOW:



Has done quite a bit of both TV and movie roles, such as Snake Eyes, Small Soldiers, Almost Heroes, I Heart Huckabees, 7th Heaven, JAG, Boomtown, Boston legal, and Prison Break. Look for him currently in the Transformers movie.

Jon Cryer as Jim 'Wash Out' Pfaffenbach:

THEN:



NOW:



Did a lot of TV work, such as Partners and The Trouble with Normal. Did voice work for cartoons as well, like Family Guy, American Dad and Danny Phantom. Currently stars on Two and a Half Men with Charlie.

William O'Leary as Pete 'Dead Meat' Thompson

THEN:



NOW:



William had a somewhat good sized role on Home Improvement as Martin "Marty" Taylor, but he really hasn't been in a whole lot to say so.

Richard Crenna as Col. Denton Walters (Part Deux)

THEN:



As Recent as I could Find:



Went on to be in Wrongfully Accused, a bunch of TV shows, notably as as Jared Duff on Judging Amy. Richard passed away in January of 2003.

Brenda Bakke as Michelle Rodham Huddleston (Part Deux)

THEN:



NOW:



Played Selena in the TV show American Gothic, and has only been in little parts here and there on both TV and the big screen. According to IMDB, she hasn't done anything since 2004.


Ryan Stiles as 'Mailman' in the first, Rabinowitz in Part Deux!

THEN:



NOW:



Ryan, of course, went on to play Lewis Kiniski on The Drew Carey Show, and also appeared on the American version of Whose Line Is It Anyways. (as well as the orginal British version) Besides his stints in commercials for Kinko's, Progressive, and Playskool, Ryan has also stopped by the Two and a Half Men set, playing Herb.

Rowan Atkinson as Dexter Hayman (Part Deux)


THEN:


NOW:



Rowan went on to make two movies starring his most noticeable character, Mr. Bean. He also starred in the movie Johnny English, appeared in films like Rat Race, Scooby Doo, and Love Actually. He voiced Zazu in The Lion King, and had another TV show besides Mr. Bean (and Blackadder) called The Thin Blue Line. His newest movie is the Bean sequel, Mr. Bean's Holiday.

No! I would have bet Cary would have been one of those forever beautiful men... looks like he is going way of val Kilmer. NO!

Hey lets just say a positive
That pic is NOT flattering and I think hes aging fairly well I mean hes in his late 40s. I think he looks fine a little chunky but come on, in comparison to a lot of celebrities who are his age hes not terrible. He just looks like a normal guy now.

I get what you mean though. I was in LOVE with the guy in the 80's and 90's, I mean hello, Princess Bride "As You Wish"... damn I wished for a Wesley of my own every day after I saw that movie... *swoon*.

He doesnt look as good as he used to but hes not an ogre. I would still get with that lol... he needs to get rid of the "dad" sweater he's wearing though lol that aint helping.

Re: Hey lets just say a positive
he needs to get rid of the "dad" sweater he's wearing


Ha! That's what I thought, too. I don't think he looks too bad. That picture isn't the best, but it was a recent one.

Oh yeah and.....
William O' Leary played a psycho child molestor/serial killer on CSI Miami. OMG it freaked me out!

Re: Oh yeah and.....
haha, yes. I was going to comment on that.
Some of the actors they hire for stuff like that I can never look at the same way again, and he's one of them.

Re: Oh yeah and.....
Oh yeah, I remember that now! *shudder*
There's a man out there! On the wing of the plane!: Penguin Burgess Meredithmmmmjournal on September 19th, 2007 04:58 pm (UTC)
Valeria Golino... that's disappointing.

Ryan Stiles and Rowan Atkinson are always awesome.

Kevin Dunn is the brother of former SNL cast member Nora Dunn. I remember him most for his role as the "good" advisor in the Kevin Kline film "Dave."

Oh, the first one had so many good quotes that I loved.

Jim "Wash Out" Pfaffenbach: You've got four bogies heading toward you!
[sneezes on the radar screen]
Jim "Wash Out" Pfaffenbach: Oh my God, a dozen more of them! And a blimp, a big, shiny blimp and it's slowly moving south!

The reason why you cannot find any recent pics of Lloyd Bridges is becuase he has passed away.
Jamie: Judthatjamiegirl on October 7th, 2007 04:01 pm (UTC)
I know. I mentioned that. ;)
