The Cast of Mean
Girls: Where Are They
Happy October 3rd!
Why are we celebrating Oct. 3? Let us take you back to 2004—simpler times, when the only drug Lindsay Lohan was worried about was marijuana tablets, and we all got along like we did in middle school (without cakes made of rainbows and butterflies).
On Oct. 3, life changed for our hero in the story Cady and her love interest Aaron Samuels.
“On October third, he asked me what day it is; ‘it’s October third.’”
We’re celebrating Oct. 3 by indulging in an all-carb diet and bring you the cast of Mean Girls: Where Are They Now!?
Lindsay Lohan – Cady Heron
Oh, god, where do we begin? Lindsay Lohan starred in a handful of really bad movies (we won’t name names) and got arrested a few times… most reports say she’s doing well having finished her latest round of court-mandated rehab! Four for you, Linds!
Tina Fey – Mrs. Norberry
Tina Fey left SNL and created, wrote and starred in 30 Rock, which sadly ended earlier this year. Also, in case you missed it, she had a nip slip at this year’s Emmy Awards.
Rachel McAdams – Regina George
Rachel McAdams went on to star in every Nicholas Sparks movie and lived happily ever after with all the men we crush on.
On a serious note, Rachel nabbed some serious acting roles, starring in The Vow (2012), Midnight in Paris (2011), and The Time Traveller’s Wife (2009) to name a few.
Lacey Chabert – Gretchen Weiners
Lacey has led in several movies and television programs, currently starring in ABC Family’s Baby Daddy. Most recently, she stripped down for Maxim! Although this was before Mean Girls and doesn’t fit, she also voiced Eliza Thornberry on The Wild Thornberries—just thought we’d share!
Amanda Seyfried – Karen Smith
We’re pretty sure Amanda Seyfried has taken the rest of the female leads in Nicholas Sparks movies.
On a more serious note, Amanda’s career has seriously skyrocketed since Mean Girls, which was her big screen debut; she’s gained critical recognition for not only her acting, but also her singing for huge hits like Mamma Mia (2008) and Les Misérables (2012).
Lizzy Caplan – Janis Ian
You’ve probably seen Lizzy Caplan all over the place but didn’t realize because she looks nothing like Janis Ian; her most recent credits include New Girl and a starring role on Showtime’s racy Masters of Sex.
Daniel Franzese – Damien
Dam—we mean Daniel—has appeared in a number of short-lived television series; there’s still no word whether or not he got his pink shirt back.
Jonathan Bennett – Aaron Samuels
Jonathan Bennett has had acting roles in multiple, smaller production for both the big and small screens; however, it would appear that most of his career is spent killing time between Oct. 4 and Oct. 2 every year.
Also—almost 10 years later—he’s finally confident that his hair looks sexy pushed back.
Rajiv Surendra – Kevin Gnapoor
Talk about not letting the haters stopping you from doing your thang; Rajiv, who is no longer a mathlete nor a bad-ass MC, pursued a career in calligraphy—and is actually really talented!
Tim Meadows – Mr. Duvall
The SNL alum has demonstrated his comedic chops on The Colbert Report, Bob’s Burgers, Suburgatory and more. He reprised his role as Principal Duvall for Mean Girls 2—but we try not to talk about it.
Ana Gesteyer – Mrs. Heron
Another former Saturday Night Live star, Ana Gesteyer currently stars on Suburgatory, where she has to conquer girl world all over again via her teenage daughter.
Neil Flynn – Mr. Heron
While we love Cady’s dad in Mean Girls, we have to admit that Neil is best known as the nameless janitor in Scrubs. Nowadays, Neil stars as the patriarch Mike Heck in The Middle—though we think he at least figured out what it means to be grounded!
Amy Poehler – Mrs. George
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Amy Poehler has been dominating the primetime sitcom scene as Leslie Knope on Parks & Recreation; when she’s not busy with P&R, she’s constantly winning over our hearts with everything she does.
We’re also pleased to announce that she’s finally a cool mom in real life—something we’re sure her two sons already know!
Dwayne Hill – Coach Carr
From what we can tell, Coach Carr has been lending his voice to many, many anime shows that we have never heard of; which means he may or may not have stepped away from the underage girls!
Diego Klattenhoff – Shane Oman
Have you ever found yourself watching Homeland wondering why Mike Faber (Brody’s close friend and Dana and Chris’ “Uncle Mike”) looks so familiar? IT’S BECAUSE HE’S SHANE OMAN!
We know your secrets, Mike! We know you were making out with Regina George in the projection room above the auditorium!
Ky Pham – Trang Pak
Ky Pham’s IMDb page lists only one other credit, from 2005, for a minor role.
