Whatever Happened to.....???

So there have been a couple of thread discussing where certain actors and actresses are (Gabrielle Anwar, Briget Fonda, Brittany Fonda). So who do you want to know about and are wondering what the hell they have been up to?

I would ask whatever happened to half the cast of Friends? I hated the show, but it seems like most of them have dropped off the face of the planet. Best thing for it i guess.

Friends, really? They've all stayed pretty busy:

Jennifer Aniston had 2 #1 movies last year with Marle & Me as well as He's Just not that into you.

David Schwimmer had a #1 movie as well with Madagascar 2.

Courtney Cox was on a few episodes of Scrubs this year

Matthew Perry was in the critically acclaimed Studio 60.

Lisa Kudrow appears to have 6 movies in the works for 2009

Matt LeBlanc on the other hand... somebody head over to his house to make sure he's okay.

Beat to the punch. Oh well.

I'll toss in Guy Pearce. He hit Hollywood with a bang in L.A. Confidential, followed by Memento and a solid Monte Cristo. He seemed to be the next big thing but kinda fizzled out. I know the Preposition got some solid buzz, but this guy should be competing for roles with the likes of Christian Bale & Johnny Depp. It does look like he has 7 projects in the works though. Maybe one of them will be his second coming.

A lot of these actors hae made millions, why bother being in the spotlight? they could live off the interest alone.

What about Gabby Hoffman? She was cute in Now & Then as a young Demi Moore and showed promise as Tommy Lee Jones' daughter in Volcano.

How about Rachel Leigh Cook? Wasn't she all that at one point?

I remember when Josie & The Pussycats was set for release. At the time, Rosario Dawson was the new face while the other two (Tara & Rachel) were more established. Look who's gone on to become the most recognizable now.

Re: Whatever Happened to.....???

A friend of mine and I today were wondering what happened to John Hughes. A search on IMDB shows most of his post-Curly Sue credits fall into one of two categories: Either things where he was credited with creating the characters (i.e., the Beethoven sequels) or things where he's been credited under the name "Edmond Dantes". For that matter, there was nothing betwixt 2002's Maid in Manhattan and 2008's Drillbit Taylor; both of which were "Dante" projects.

Gaby Hoffman is appearing in the next Todd Solondz movie and is also appearing in 13, due out next year. Looks like she took a few years off.

Joe Pesci. He made a bunch of movie in the late 80s/early 90s then fell off the radar.
