The Cast Of Major League: Then And Now

The Cast Of Major League: Then And Now

The movie that somehow made it cool to pull for the Cleveland Indians is 25 years old.

While some of the cast never really went away, some of them have faded into obscurity. Here's a look back at Wild Thing, Jake, Serrano, Willie Mays Hayes and the rest of the gang and what they're up to now.

Tom Berenger - "Jake Taylor"

The anchor of the clubhouse, Taylor's sac bunt helped the Indians win the huge game against the Yankees to win a Pennant.

Where would the Indians have been without ol' Jake Taylor?

Tom's been busy and actually looks pretty good for 64 years old. He starred in Training Day and Inception, and he recently earned an Emmy for his work on Hatfields & McCoys.

Mostly, he's been chilling with his family, splitting his time between Southern California, Vancouver and Beaufort, SC.

Charlie Sheen - "Ricky Vaughn"

Wild Thing, Veg-head, whatever you called him, this veteran of the California Penal League was the ace hurler with a 101mph fastball.

What's Mr. Sheen up to these days?

We all know what Charlie's up to. He's winning.

He starred in a documentary of his own life called 'Two And A Half Men' that he got himself thrown off of, going on to star in a piece of garbage on FX, 'Anger Management.' Sheen recently married his porn star girlfriend, which we are all sure will turn out swimmingly.

Corbin Bernsen -- "Roger Dorn"

The high priced veteran and old pal of Taylor taught us all a lesson about humility or something.

He also wore that v-neck sweater like a total pimp.

While your parents probably know Corbin from his work on "LA Law", he's actually found a pretty cool role as a producer.

His production companies, Public Media Works and Team Cherokee Productions, have been turning out independent film for a while. Corbin also holds claim to one of the world's largest collection of snow globes.

You can't make that up.

Margaret Whitton -- "Rachel Phelps"

Margaret Whitton -- "Rachel Phelps"

She was the evil new owner who rigged the team to fail so she could move to Miami that we all secretly thought was sort of hot.

Her cardboard doppelganger also served as a motivational tool for the Indians.

After bopping around Hollywood and Broadway for a few years, Whitton actually vanished from the spotlight.

She wrote the script to a play called "A Bird Of The Air", sold the right, and that was the last anyone ever heard. Latest reports have her married happily to former Bear, Stearns & Co. executive Warren Spector and rooting for her beloved New York Yankees.

James Gammon -- "Lou Brown"

James Gammon -- "Lou Brown"

Lou Brown was the tough, no nonsense manager of the Indians. He was so tough, he peed on Roger Dorn's contract.

Good thing he left selling tires for that.

Gammon was an accomplished actor prior to Major League, with a long list of great roles. After Major League, he guest starred on Greys Anatomy and starred in 2008's Appaloosa.

Gammon lost his battle with liver cancer, passing away in 2010.

Rene Russo -- "Lynn Wells"

Rene Russo -- "Lynn Wells"

Taylor's old flame, Lynn made life tough for the Indians star. As a former Olympic swimmer, Taylor was obsessed with winning her back.

Russo actually starred in a ton of movies in that era, including another sports classic, "Tin Cup."

After doing "Two For The Money" opposite Al Pacino, Rene took six years off and emerged to do "Thor" in 2011. She has one daughter with her husband, who is a lucky man because she remains as beautiful as she was when she stole a ballplayer's heart.

Wesley Snipes -- "Willie Mays Hayes"

Wesley Snipes -- "Willie Mays Hayes"

The flashy baserunning specialist sprinted his way onto the Indians team, keeping himself in scoring position.

He played like Mays, ran like Hayes.

After giving an amazing performance in "White Men Can't Jump" and again in "Blade," Snipes bounced around for a little bit until 2006.

Busted on income tax evasion, after a long ordeal, Snipes went to prison in 2010 and did three years. After his release, he signed on to do Expendables 3.

Chelcie Ross -- "Eddie Harris"

Chelcie Ross -- "Eddie Harris"

The aging pitcher with a habit of rubbing Crisco and snot on the baseball also gave us the two best lines of the movie...

"Bartender! Jobu needs a refill!" and the classic, "Are you saying Jesus Christ can't hit a curveball?"

After Major League, Ross got seriously busy -- starring in a number of films.

Most recently he appeared on Mad Men and played opposite Clint Eastwood in another baseball film, "Trouble With The Curve."

Dennis Haysbert -- "Pedro Cerrano"

The Cuban defector and voodoo practitioner was the big guns of the Indians' lineup, crushing homers.

So long as the pitch wasn't a curve.

He's the guy in the Allstate commercials.

Did that not blow your mind?

Bob Uecker -- "Harry Doyle"

Bob Uecker -- "Harry Doyle"

The play-by-play man for the Indians never pulled punches in his analysis of the team.

Doyle stuck with the Tribe through winning and losing -- because he had to.

Uecker was actually the play-by-play man for the Milwaukee Brewers, which if you didn't know that -- get out more.

After two heart surgeries, "Mr Baseball" retired from broadcasting in 2010. He still pops in on the Brewers games from time to time and makes many speaking engagements.
