Where are the Cast of ‘Empire Records,’ 20 Years Later?

Empire Records
When released into theaters in 1995, the youth-oriented workplace comedy, Empire Records, was a colossal flop; not even vaguely recouping a tiny percentage of its nearly $10 million budget.

Ostensibly a flick about, and for, the fabled Generation X, its intended audience barely registered its existence. The subsequent generation, however, those sweet Millennials, came to later discover the film on cable and VHS, and claim it as their own. Now, in 2015, it’s something of a classic with those who were born in the 80s and later.

While the film actually hit theaters — for what wound up being its very limited engagement — in September of 1995, April 8th marks what fans have dubbed Rex Manning Day; which is, in the flick’s plot, the day the film takes place.

BuzzFeed writes of the movie’s production and the subsequent phenomenon in vastly greater depth here.

To bring this back to a PeekYou focus, as we’ll do, below are links to the PeekYou profiles of the film’s principal cast. Clicking through the items on the list will lead you to a cavalcade of links for the corresponding actor’s social pages, home page, fan pages, videos, photos, and much more. Not so much a “where are they now?” as a “where are they now on the Web?”
