Since then: There were some Scream sequels, of course. Also: Pushing Daisies, Cleaners, Jack and the Never Land Pirates, and Pee-Wee's Big Holiday.

Jeremy Jordan as Guy Perkins

20th Century Fox

Since then: The actor behind teen hunk Guy is also a singer. He's only been in three IMDb-documented productions since Never Been Kissed (including one that's currently in pre-production), but he released a single in 2009, and you can watch him jam in 2013 here.

James Franco as Jason

Since then: Well. Uh. Yeah. He's been James Franco. The very distilled version: A little show called Freaks And Geeks, a supporting role in the original Spider-Man movies, the perrennial classic Tristan + Isolde, and a guest-starring spot on The Mindy Project. I'm sure he fit some other things into that time, too.

Jessica Alba as Kirsten

Since then: Pretty much everything people actually remember about her career. Including, of course: Dark Angel, the Fantastic Four movies, Into the Blue, Sin City, and a mighty business empire with Honest.

Molly Shannon as Anita

Since then: There's The Perfect You, Cabin Fever, and a big run on Robot Chicken. She's also got six upcoming projects listed on IMDB, so she's not going anywhere.

Since then: Oh, you know, just casually winning Oscars. Octavia took one home for The Help, and has also made memorable turns in Snowpiercer, Red Band Society, and Mom.

Basically: They are killing it.
