One of the striking differences between the average sports movie and the rest of its cinematic brethren is that—good or bad—it often features a cast of lesser known actors and athletes.
Of course, classics like The Natural, Slap Shot and Bull Durham gave top billing to some of the biggest stars in the industry, but for every sports flick starring Robert Redford, there are a dozen that either landed a future A-lister early in his career or featured a lesser known actor in a prominent role.
It's the nature of the genre and one of the reasons so many beloved classics proudly wear the label of "cult classic."
As a result, plenty of actors who played some of the most memorable characters from our favorite sports flicks haven't exactly been a prominent part of pop culture in the years since. But that doesn't mean that their lives and careers stopped after the credits rolled.
In August 2013, Bleacher Report published "Sports Movie Stars All Grown Up." This piece is a follow-up to that. Here are some more of our favorite sports movie stars and where they are now.
