It's been exactly 29 years ago since Ferris skipped school, so let's take a look at what the cast is up to these days.
Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller
Since his rebellious high school days, Matthew's won two Tony Awards and continued to act in films — he was the voice of Simba in The Lion King. In 1987, he and Ferris Bueller co-star and then-girlfriend Jennifer Grey were in a serious car accident in Ireland. He's married to Sarah Jessica Parker and recently celebrated his 53rd birthday.
Mia Sara as Sloane Peterson
Alan Ruck as Cameron Frye
Before Alan was Matthew Broderick's on-screen BFF, the two acted together in the 1985 Broadway production of Biloxi Blues. Since then, he's taken on numerous film and television roles, including parts in Twister and Speed. He said that working with director John Hughes was "almost like having a stand-up comic for a director."
Jennifer Grey as Jeanie Bueller
Edie McClurg as Grace
Jonathan Schmock as Chez Quis Maitre D'
Jonathan has continued acting since Ferris Bueller, taking on roles in The Golden Girls, Arrested Development, and The Mentalist. He's written for various television shows, including Blossom and Dharma & Greg, and he co-created the Sabrina, the Teenage Witch series. According to his website, he's also "an accomplished painter and photographer."
Ben Stein as Economics Teacher
Ben Stein has done everything.
