Taran Killam in his frosted-tips glory played a Justin Bieber-like teen heartthrob in the 2004 flick, Stuck in the Suburbs.

The spiky-haired king of DCOMs, Ryan Merriman has starred in Smart House and The Luck of the Irish before moving on to playing Ian Thomas on Pretty Little Liars(!) and Jake in The Ring II.
Kirsten Storms was the coolest girl of the 21st century: Zenon. Her outfits were fly and she went on fun adventures saving her planet. Storms reprised her role twice, once in 2001 and again in 2004, and did some TV roles in between. Although she hasn’t been on TV for a while, she’s best known as her role as Maxie Jones on General Hospital.
