This was the first TV project from Ryan Murphy.

He went on to create Nip/Tuck, American Horror Story and, of course, Glee. Similar to that show, Popular was set in a high school dominated by tensions between cool kids and the nerds.

It also featured a young, talented, likeable cast, many of whom are still familiar faces on TV today...


Ron Lester as Michael 'Sugar Daddy' Bernardino.

According to his Twitter account, Lester's next project "is a radio show, 'Ron talking Shit with a Brit', so we'll be live in the US as well as England."
