While fans of Downton Abbey patiently await updates from creator/writer Julian Fellowes on his plans for a theatrical movie of the mega-hit Masterpiece historical drama, a new movie featuring four of its cast members has been filming in England and The Channel Islands. 

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, adapted from the international best-selling novel by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, is somewhat of a mini-reunion for Downton cast members. The World War II period drama will star Lily James as free-spirited journalist Juliet Ashton and feature Jessica Brown Findlay as Elizabeth McKenna, Matthew Goode as Sidney Stark, and Penelope Wilton as Amelia Maugery.

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.
