A baby-faced Jason Segel was 19 when he was cast as Nick Andopolis.
At age 23, Linda Cardellini was the oldest member. Prior to the series she had a few guest starring roles on the TV shows Step by Step, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and Boy Meets World.
At age 13, John Francis Daley (who played Sam Weir) was the youngest cast member.

James Franco as Daniel Desario was everyone’s favorite burnout.
Philipps told Vanity Fair in 2012 about the chemistry between her and her on-screen boyfriend Franco: “Presumably both of our characters come from abusive households, and you parrot what your family does. We had a really intense thing when we worked together.”
A rare shot of Bill Haverchuck (Martin Starr) without his trademark glasses.
Seth Rogen as the cynical “freak” Ken Miller. The role was Rogen’s acting debut.
Cardellini and Segel dated for a few years following the show’s cancellation.

Yup, I was definitely Sam Weir :(
Daley told Vanity Fair in 2012, “Linda and I spent a lot of time between scenes giving each other a hard time. I probably had a bit of a crush on her, too, which you don’t want to hear when we’re playing brother and sister. But it’s hard not to have a crush on her.”
Samm Levine as Neal Schweiber.
Our favorite badass Kim Kelly (Busy Philipps). Although the photo is supposed to be set in 1980, it is clearly 1999 in the background.
