You Won’t Believe What Happened to the Cast of The Replacements 》

The Replacements is one of those weird sports comedies that has only gotten better over time. While it doesn’t provide the most accurate portrayal of football, the movie finds the perfect blend of humor and heart. And that’s largely due to the success of its killer cast, including future Hollywood phenomenon Keanu Reeves.

Of course, this movie came out way back in 2000. What have some of its biggest stars been up to in the past couple of decades? Keep reading to find out!

Gene Hackman

Gene Hackman was by far the biggest name to star in The Replacements. He portrayed head coach Jimmy McGinty with his usual craggy charm. And once that film wrapped, he certainly kept busy with various Hollywood projects.

For example, he starred in a decent romantic comedy, Heartbreakers, with Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt, and his 2004 political comedy Welcome to Mooseport (the last movie he made before retiring) was funny enough. Between these, though, he turned out some of the best films of his career, including Wes Anderson’s bizarre comedy The Royal Tenenbaums and the high seas thriller Behind Enemy Lines, a movie that reunited him with his Tenenbaums costar Owen Wilson.
