The cast of the 2001 cult classic Wet Hot American Summer recently got back together to film the Netflix original series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.
And seriously, for being 15 years older, the cast still looks DAMN GOOD.
1. Janeane Garofalo as Beth
Fun fact: Garofalo, who was one of the most well-known names in Wet Hot American Summer, agreed to do the film about three years before it was actually produced.
2. David Hyde Pierce as Henry
Fun fact: Pierce (along with Garofalo) was one of the most well-known actors in the movie — he had shot to fame for his role as “Niles” on the hit show Fraiser (which he was still starring in at the time).
3. Amy Poehler as Susie
Fun fact: This was one of Poehler's major breakout roles. Before WHAS she was living in New York doing improv for the Upright Citizens Brigade. Poehler said she met Michael Showalter and David Wain while living in New York. They said if they ever made WHAS, they would cast her. When they finally made the movie they followed through on that promise.
4. Elizabeth Banks as Lindsay
Fun fact: This was Banks' first major role. She would go on to star in films such as Seabiscuit, The Hunger Games, and Zach and Miri Make a Porno.
5. Paul Rudd as Andy
Fun fact: Rudd was still a rising star during the debut of the 2001 movie. He was best known for his role in Clueless and LITERALLY HASN’T AGED SINCE.
6. Bradley Cooper as Ben
Fun fact: WHAS was Cooper's first feature film out of college. He actually missed his graduation while filming.
7. Marisa Ryan as Abby
Fun fact: Ryan first got her start as an actor on the show Major Dad, which ran for five years.
8. Michael Ian Black as McKinley
Fun fact: Black was pretty recognizable for his small comedic roles on TV pre-WHAS. After the movie, he continued to appear in movies and TV shows, including Inside Amy Schumer.
9. Kevin Sussman as Steve
Fun fact: Sussman is probably best know for playing Stuart Bloom on The Big Bang Theory.
10. A.D. Miles as Gary
Fun fact: In the documentary Hurricane of Fun: The Making of Wet Hot, it is clear that although Miles' role in the film wasn't the biggest, his role behind the scenes was pretty significant, as he constantly provided comic relief and amazing rhymes.
11. Zak Orth as J.J.
Fun fact: Before WHAS, Orth appeared in Romeo + Juliet alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Claire Danes, and his future co-star, Paul Rudd.
12. Christopher Meloni as Gene
Fun fact: Meloni was most well-known for working on Law & Order: SVU before WHAS.
13. Molly Shannon as Gail
Fun fact: At the time Shannon was still part of the SNL cast, where she was best known for her recurring character Mary Katherine Gallagher, an odd Catholic school girl (which she also played in the 1999 movie Superstar).
14. Ken Marino as Victor
Fun fact: Marino also worked with Paul Rudd on movies like Role Models and Wanderlust.
15. Joe Lo Truglio as Neil
Fun fact: Truglio has become a familiar face in the comedy world, appearing in movies like Pineapple Express, Role Models, and Superbad.
16. Marguerite Moreau as Katie
Fun fact: Moreau auditioned for Katie on the last day of casting. Bradley Cooper told her about the film and she was the last person they saw.
17. Michael Showalter as Coop
Fun fact: Showalter along with David Wain created and wrote Wet Hot American Summer. The film originally received bad reviews, but has since drawn a huge cult following. During filming, Showalter and Wain had about three sunny days to film the movie (which was supposed to take place on a sunny day).
