Sixteen years ago today, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion hit theaters. It’s hard to believe it was so long ago… But now we get to revisit Lisa Kudrow, Mira Sorvino and the rest of the cast, which also included Janeane Garofalo, but more surprisingly, Kristen Bauer (!) and Justin Theroux (!!).
Lisa Kudrow (Michele Weinberger)
The former Friends actress has starred in a slew of shows and films. Kudrow currently stars in Web Therapy as Fiona Wallice, a therapist who works with patients over the internet.
Mira Sorvino (Romy White)
Sorvino has popped up here and there, including a 2000 film version of The Great Gatsby and Mimic. The latter resulted in a compound excreted by the sunburst diving beetle being named after her (“mirasorvone”).
Up Next: Alan Cumming, Jennifer Aniston’s fiance and more.
Alan Cumming (Sandy Frink)
Following Romy and Michele, Cumming most notably starred in the X-Men series as Nightcrawler. He currently portrays Eli Gold, a cunning campaign manager, on The Good Wife and has a recurring role on Kudrow’s Web Therapy.
Justin Theroux (Clarence the Cowboy)
Romy and Michele was Theroux’s fourth film ever. The stud has gone on to get naked on Six Feet Under, beat up some of Charlie’s angels, write Iron Man 2 and finally make Jennifer Aniston an honest woman.
Up Next: True Blood’s Pam and more.
Kristin Bauer (Kelly)
This unknown actress at the time went on to join True Blood in 2008 as Pam, Eric Northman’s loyal, ass-kicking servant.
Janeane Garofalo (Heather Mooney)
After appearing in Romy and Michele, Garofalo was never heard from again. Kidding! She has made a slew of cult comedies, including Dogma, 200 Cigarettes, Wet Hot American Summer and the Lindsay Lohan classic, Labor Pains.
Up Next: The movie’s “mean girl” and Camryn Manheim.
Julia Campbell (Christie Masters)
Most famous for portraying as the “mean girl,” Campbell has appeared on everything from Desperate Housewives to MTV’s Awkward.
Camryn Manheim (Toby Walters)
Manheim joined The Practice the same year Romy and Michele came out. She later starred in Ghost Whisperer alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt and the TV mini-series, Elvis.
Thanks everyone for the memories and the most epic high school dance scene ever:
