Through the Years, Costars Have Reconnected
Nothing beats a quick reunion! In Hollywood, actors from both TV and film frequently reunite, whether it’s for a new project or a red carpet appearance.
The fact that Jennifer Garner got to work on another movie with Mark Ruffalo, who portrayed her love interest in 13 Going on 30, made the reunion all the more memorable.
Garner praised the experience of filming The Adam Project with Ruffalo on Good Morning America in March, saying, “It was great.” “We were acting as a married couple, and we just felt at ease right away. Obviously, there is just such warmth and connection. The sensation of going back to that relationship was incredibly lovely.
The Friends cast reunited for one final public celebration of their popular show, and it was a very emotional occasion.
Soon after the Friends special aired on HBO Max in May 2021, Jennifer Aniston described it as “kind of a sucker punch in the heart” on SiriusXM’s Gayle King in the House. “I believe it was for all of us. We even got tears from Courteney [Cox].
The cast got to go around their old sets, which increased the nostalgia of the trip down memory lane. Later in the special, the group revealed they would not be publicly reuniting for the show again.
“It almost felt like time had stopped and we had traveled through time,” the Morning Show host continued. There is both good and tragedy in that, as well.
Regarding Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder, they made a business out of their post-The Vampire Diaries reunion and continued to collaborate.
When asked how they came to develop a fondness for bourbon, Wesley told Entertainment Weekly in April 2021, “The reality is we would finish shooting and we’d go to the bar or we’d go to our homes or whatever, but we’d always sit back and have a bourbon, so we developed this love for bourbon.”
Kenan and Kel
In addition to getting back together in 2015 to reprise their Good Burger roles on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell also startled viewers at the 2022 Emmy Awards. Mitchell, a surprise guest who pretended to be a bar patron during the presentation, was greeted by Thompson, who was hosting the awards show. The Saturday Night Live star also hinted at a 2023 release of a Good Burger sequel as the two hugged and leaped together.
From “The Brady Bunch”
Several Brady Bunch cast members, including Christopher Knight, Eve Plumb, Barry Williams, Mike Lookinland, and Susan Olsen, reunited on the red carpet and throughout the ceremony at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards in September 2022. When asked to attend the awards presentation, Plumb, who played middle sister Jan, said to Page Six, “We’re extremely surprised and very thrilled.”
