Frankie Muniz Has Been Busy Since You Last Saw Him

As if you need another reason to watch Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! on Wednesday night, look no further. In addition to sharks, tornadoes, President Mark Cuban, and an exclamation point in the title, the Syfy TV movie also features Frankie Muniz who has been up to a lot since you last saw him. You remember Frankie Muniz, right? I mean, how could you forget?! Just to jog your memory, he starred in the movie My Dog Skip, and he was the titular character in the TV series Malcolm in the Middle — which, brace yourself, premiered 15 years ago. He also co-starred in movies with both Disney Channel darling Hilary Duff and Nickelodeon queen bee Amanda Bynes! If you were a kid in the 2000s, you definitely were acquainted with/a fan of Muniz’s work.

Muniz sort of retired from acting 10 years ago (in a tweet he said he retired at age 19 with $40 million), but what has the now 29-year-old been up to since then? Well, he has traveled, took on new jobs, landed some cameo appearances, and found romance. It seems Muniz has been keeping himself pretty busy. Here are all of the adventures he’s gotten into since Malcolm in the Middle ended in 2006!
