Where Are They Now: The Cast of ‘Stand By Me’ 25 Years Later

Can you believe that it has been a quarter century since four young chums walked along train tracks in Oregon looking for a dead body? The Stand By Me 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray arrives in stores today, so you may want to brush up on what the film’s cast members have been doing since they created this timeless gem. We’ll catch you up, after the jump.

Wil Wheaton – Gordie LaChance

Following his heartwarming turn as Gordie, Wheaton played bright, young Wesley Crusher for four seasons on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Among some circles (nerdy circles), he’s best known for that role, one he has embraced by making regular appearances at Comic-Con. In 1991, he was part of a young ensemble cast in Toy Soldiers. He has since had numerous cameos on TV shows like Numb3rs and The Big Bang Theory, taken part in the occasional Web short, and done voice acting for animated TV and video games. And he has become a writer, just like Gordie — for two years he wrote a column about video games for The Onion, he has self-published several memoirs, and has been an active blogger for a decade, first at wilwheaton.net, and now at wilwheaton.typepad.com.

Based on the novella The Body in the Stephen King anthology Different Seasons (which also included the source stories for The Shawshank Redemption and Apt Pupil, which could have easily made this list as well), Rob Reiner’s 1986 coming-of-age drama gave King’s nostalgic tale a timeless pulse and immediacy, aided immeasurably by a pitch-perfect period soundtrack and a quartet of unforgettable performances by Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman, Jerry O’Connell, and the late, great River Phoenix. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Next > Add a comment var addthis_config = { username: "flavorwire" } Email to a friend Tweet Facebook Digg StumbleUpon // [...]
