The cast of ‘Teen Wolf’ — where are they now?
I want. A keg. Of beer. Also, tell me what happened to these cast members from director Rod Daniel’s 80s puberty classic.
1. Michael J. Fox, Scott Howard
Our boy contracted Parkinson’s disease in 1990 and has since launched a non-profit that continues to search for a cure and help treat others. He was also really awesome on episodes of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” in 2011.
2. James Hampton, Harold Howard
I had the honor of meeting James Hampton at a horror convention in Dallas back in 2005. We talked about that time he was a guest on the game show “Password” and then he told me how much he enjoyed golf. He was sitting next to softcore starlet Ashlie Rhey. I think she opened up a yoga or beauty studio of some kind around then. Look up her profile at CelebrityMovieArchive. Hell of a career. Both very nice people. I wish ‘em the best.
3. Susan Ursitti, Boof
Susan had a decent run after “Teen Wolf” but dialed back her acting career in the 90s. She now has kids and is married to a fellow named Sheinberg and lives in Brentwood, Los Angeles. It’s nice there.
4. Jerry Levine, Stiles
Guess what? Jerry Levine directed a few of the earlier episodes of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and since has made the rounds helming ton of of TV series such as “Elementary,” “Vegas,” “Everybody Hates Chris” and is arguably the subject of the absolute best bit in comic Eugene Mirman’s career, IMHO. You gotta listen. It’s just two minutes or so:
5. Lorie Griffin, Pamela
No current photo was available for actress Lorie Griffin, whose last credit, according to IMDb, was in the late 90s. Unrelated, but, if you haven’t seen Sam Raimi’s 2009 sleeper schlock “Drag Me to Hell” (above, right), I cannot recommend it enough. So good.
6. Mark Holton, Chubby
I love this man. There isn’t a role he pops up in that is not memorable. We can’t thank him enough for giving credit when credit is due to the right man who saved the queen’s life. Riiiiight, Peewee????
7. Jay Tarses, Coach Bobby Finstock
Jay Tarses is actually a writer, which explains why he nailed those lines about tattooed women and cream cheese with such literary prowess. Seriously, he’s probably the best part of this movie, except for the last few seconds. (Scroll down to the bottom.) Tarses penned the screenplays for “The Great Muppet Caper” and “The Muppets Take Manhattan.”
8. Mark Arnold, Mick McAllister
You gotta hand it to this bro. Mark Arnold was so convincing as the douchebag who dated Pam and pretty much beat the hell out of Michael J. Fox on the court (unless he transformed into TW; see, I remember the plot well), that he managed to forge through the cruelty of adolescent stardom and has since landed a ton of roles in television and indie film. Perhaps you’ve seen him in the short film “Cranberry Sauce”? No? OK, how about an episode of “Tim and Eric”? Well, he was on there too. Just go to his IMDb page because I can’t list ‘em all for you. The point is he’s solid.
9. Dude who had his junk out at the basketball game
We just don’t know who this guy is, but his seven seconds basically stole the entire film. You’d think he’d come out on Twitter or somewhere by now. Dude, if you’re reading this, please get in touch.
