What happened to the cast of The Lost Boys?
Poser... Jason Patric (Copyright: REX/WENN)
The grandson of New York funnyman Jackie Gleason (yep, really...), Jason Patric maintained a semi-respectable Hollywood career for the decade after ’The Lost Boys’. In the late ‘90s though, starring roles in films like ‘Sleepers’ opposite Robert De Niro and the ‘Speed’ sequel, ‘Speed 2: Cruise Control’ saw the man who played Michael Emerson briefly flirt with super-stardom. Since then, only a great and rather beardy turn in Joe Carnahan’s gritty and under-seen crime thriller ‘Narc’ has been of any real note. One interesting thing about Patric is that he started dating Julia Roberts just days after she called off her wedding to a ‘Lost Boys’ co-star, a certain Kiefer Sutherland...

Hair raiser... Kiefer Sutherland (Copyright: REX/WENN)
Kiefer’s the one major success story from the movie. He got over the Julia Roberts episode to become one of the ‘90s’ busiest - and most successful actors - starring in 22 movies before the decade was out. He appeared with his Dad Donald in ‘A Time to Kill’, directed the moody and underrated ‘Truth or Consequences, N.M’, as well as popping up in films like ‘Young Guns’ and ‘The Three Muskateers’. He carried the hard work throughout the noughties, appearing in dozens of films as well as the television behemoth that was ‘24’ - the longest-running and most successful spy drama series ever televised. His last film was Lars von Triers’ dark and gloomy ‘Melancholia’. And his next move? Maybe letting us enjoy popcorn with our brutal torture scenes as the ‘24’ movie is said to be ‘in the works’.
Cool customer... Corey Feldman (Copyright: REX/WENN)
Corey #1 has kept himself pretty busy these past 25 years. He’s formed a band, testified against Michael Jackson in court, lent his voice to a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, appeared in a Katy Perry video, been married on television by MC Hammer, appeared on ‘Dancing on Ice in the UK’, popped up in a documentary about Ron Jeremy and even featured on ‘Celebrity Juice’ with Keith Lemon. He’s not been in many good movies, mind. Actually, barring ‘The ‘Burbs’ in 1989, he’s not been in any good ‘uns.
