There has never been, and likely will never be, another movie like The Big Lebowski a comedy homage to the film noir set in the early ‘90s. Instead of a wise-cracking detective, however, the protagonist was a bumbling burnout stoner who ventured out of the house in his bathrobe.

Making the movie even more unique, the writer/director tandem The Coen Brothers added in several Busby Berkeley musical numbers, a foray into the adult film industry, parodies of the art world, a heavy dose of league bowling, and a ferret.

The cult classic movie is a staple of the midnight movie circuit. It has its own annual conventions for fans called Lebowski Fest and The Dude Abides. It is a critically beloved movie, and has a classic soundtrack of classic rock staples.

Released in 1998, there has been a significant amount of time for the actors in The Big Lebowski to either rise up, fall from grace, further cement their legacies, or (in some unfortunate cases) pass away. With that in mind, we will now take a look at Where Are They Now: The Cast Of The Big Lebowski.

18. John Goodman

WATN The Big Lebowski John Goodman Where Are They Now? The Cast Of The Big Lebowski

John Goodman had been one of the more recognizable actors coming into the filming of The Big Lebowski. Having acted since 1983, he was already a Coen Brothers regular (Raising Arizona, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy).

He had also already played both Fred Flintstone and Babe Ruth, and was one of the most famous actors on TV for his portrayal of Dan in Roseanne. In The Big Lebowski he played Walter Sobchak– a Vietnam vet with a penchant for overreacting, who imposes himself into the many adventures of The Dude.

Goodman has continued acting in high profile movies and shows since 1998. Most famously, he provides the voice for Sully in the Monsters, Inc. series. He also went on to work with the Coen Brothers in O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Inside Llewyn Davis.

He has provided voice work in the upcoming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and Transformers: The Last Knight. Goodman is also slated to reprise his role of Dan in a returning Roseanne.

17. Aimee Mann

People often forget that Aimee Mann was in The Big Lebowski. She had a very small role in the film, credited only as “Nihilist Woman.” Mann was primarily a musician before and after Lebowski. In fact, she only has 10 acting credits on her IMDB page– many of them from very small roles.

Originally famous for being in the New Wave band ‘Til Tuesday, she went on to perform as a solo artist in the early ‘90s.

Since Lebowski she has continued both acting and recording music. She has released 7 albums since the movie, making the Billboard charts with her 2008 album @#%&*! Smilers. Mann was nominated for both an Oscar and a Grammy for her song “Save Me” for the movie Magnolia.

She appeared in and performed on Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 2002. She voiced the character Opal for an episode of the cartoon Steven Universe. Mann also played herself in a very funny performance in Portlandia. Her most recent album came out this year, and is called Mental Illness.
