Hard to believe but this week marks two decades since movie-going audiences were introduced to a group of unemployed misfits from Sheffield, England desperate to make a few quid. So bad are their prospects, in fact, that the impulsive idea to form a local Chippendale-esque troupe morphs into a reasonable money making idea.

In case you don't recognize it, this is the premise for British underdog comedy, The Full Monty. In honor of the 20th anniversary of the film's release this past August, we thought it might be fun to see what has happened in the careers of a sampling of its cast members.

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan wondering how you’ll pass the time during the series’ (likely quite lengthy) hiatus, don’t worry. You won’t have to go that long without seeing its star Kit Harrington on your television screen again.

The Thrones actor has the leading role in upcoming BBC series Gunpowder, a three-part drama which tells the story of the infamous Gunpowder Plot. This is the 17th conspiracy that meant to blow up the House of Lords and kill King James I, so that a Catholic monarch could be restored to the throne of England.
