WB Week: Gilmore Girls - Where Are They Now? - Featured


Lauren Graham aka Lorelai Gilmore

Lauren Graham has already been in a few movies since Gilmore's end, including the unfortunate Evan Almighty and last year's Flash Of Genius with Greg Kinnear. However, seems as though even bigger things are on the way, as Graham will soon be starring in a Broadway production of Guys and Dolls. What's more, her ABC pilot - Let it Go - was recently greenlit.


Alexis Bledel aka Rory Gilmore

Much like Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy, I don't think that Bledel will ever find a better role than Rory Gilmore. Since Gilmore's conclusion, Bledel has only had one role to date - reprising her role of Lena in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants sequel. Ironically, though she was the big name in the original film, one could argue that both Blake Lively and America Ferrera have since surpassed her in fame. Time, however, will tell, and Bledel does have 2 upcoming film credits for 2009.


Scott Patterson aka Luke Danes

Scott Patterson appeared in feature films Saw IV and Saw V. He also starred in the single season CW show Aliens in America as patriarch Gary Tolchuck. He has a movie listed in pre-production for 2009 called "Liberty".


Edward Herrmann aka Richard Gilmore

Edward Hermann has been pretty quiet since his time in Gilmore, though he was already a venerable actor, so perhaps he has been intentionally laying low. He has, however, had time to guest star in both Grey's Anatomy and 30 Rock.


Kelly Bishop aka Emily Gilmore

Kelly Bishop, like her onscreen husband, has likely been quietly enjoying life since Gilmore's conclusion. Her only credit to date is a 2 episode guest arc on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.


Melissa McCarthy aka Sookie St. James

Melissa McCarthy has had steady work since she finished her days on Gilmore. The following TV season, she landed the role of Dena on sitcom Samantha Who?. She also appeared in a movie in 2008 entitled "Just Add Water".


Rory's various men:

Jared Padalecki aka Dean Forester

We all recognize Padalecki as Sam on current CW series Supernatural. He also has a penchant for horror films, as since his Gilmore days his film credits include House of Wax, Cry Wolf and the upcoming Friday the 13th.


Milo Ventimiglia aka Jess Mariano

Seems as though Rory's men have done well for themselves in their post-Gilmore days as Ventimiglia is one of the most recognizable leads of the huge ensemble cast of NBC's Heroes. He also appeared in the short-lived series The Bedford Diaries and feature films including Rocky Balboa and Pathology. You may have also heard his name in news for being attached to his much younger Heroes co-star, Hayden Panettiere; he used to date Alexis Bledel in real-life.


Matt Czuchry as Logan Huntzberger

Since Gilmore, Czuchry has so far only appeared in a 4 episode guest arc on Friday Night Lights as Chris Kennedy. He also has a movie credit listed for release in 2009.


So..which Stars Hollow resident or friend has come the farthest?

It has to be Milo and I would seriously like Alexis do some roles which did not involve her playing a shy, quiet girl as I feel she is being typecasted into such roles similar but not as good enough as the role of Rory which actually had depth.Melissa Mccartney is really funny and lively on Samantha Who so good for her!I have never really got into supernatural but i hear its popular among some people and his movies are usually great (Jared)Edward was really great on that Grey's episode :)Cant wait for Lauren's show and she was also in that movie with Mandy Moore-because i said so, which i happened to like:)

I think all of them have had more movies/shows then what is printed. Alexis was also in the POST-Graduate... (not sure if it was pre/post or during the Gilmore Era). I loved the cast, and will continue to follow them in there future roles.
