Felicity: They're Back!
Since graduating from her role as college coed Felicity in 2002, Keri Russell, 28, has become a genuine triple threat: She costars as Joan Allen's daughter in the new movie The Upside of Anger, recently wrapped a Broadway run in Neil LaBute's Fat Pig and will team with Steven Spielberg for the upcoming TNT miniseries Into the West.
He was Felicity's easygoing true love Ben, but now Scott Speedman, 29, is all edge, chasing werewolves and vampires in Underworld and toting a gun as a government agent in XXX: State of the Union. But really, he still sees himself as that regular, flannel-clad guy: "I want to buy a cabin and a rowboat and learn how to fish," he told Entertainment Weekly about his five-year plan.
After his 2003 split from ex-wife Jennifer Garner – whom he met on the Felicity set – Scott Foley, 32, had a TV series, 2003's A.U.S.A., a recurring spot on Scrubs and a Broadway debut in The Violet Hour. Most recently, the actor who played Felicity's first love, Noel, guested on the offbeat FOX hit House.
Since playing Noel's ex-girlfriend Hannah on a few Felicity guest spots, Jennifer Garner, 32, has been anything but a bit player. Starring in Elektra and 13 Going on 30 on the big screen, the actress – who's dating Ben Affleck – won a Golden Globe for her role on TV's Alias. Next up: voicing a part in the children's tale Charlotte's Web.
As Dr. Turk on the critically acclaimed sitcom Scrubs, Donald Faison, 30, is a newlywed surgeon playing gags on costar Zach Braff. In real life, the married actor, who on Felicity played Elena's fiancé Tracy, deems his four kids his biggest success:. "I've got three boys and a girl. I genuinely love taking care of them."
He played the entrepreneurial Sean on Felicity, and now Greg Grunberg, 38, has reinvented himself as CIA agent Eric Weiss on Felicity creator J.J. Abrams' spy series Alias. He's taken a can-do attitude in real life, too, rallying behind the Pediatric Epilepsy Project after son Jake, 8, was diagnosed with the disease. Recently Grunberg got his Alias costars and other famous friends to make one-of-a-kind guitars to be auctioned off to benefit the foundation.
Wife Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) calls him the "most secure person I've ever met" – but before Ian Gomez, 40, got his new TV series Jake in Progress with John Stamos, he played Felicity's neurotic gay boss Javier. Series creator Abrams noted his talent from the start: "It was a no-brainer," he told Entertainment Weekly. "Ian's able to make Javier a character, not a caricature."
She was nominated for a NAACP Image Award for her role as Felicity's best friend Elena in 2002, and now Tangi Miller, who studied at the Royal National Theater in London, received a second nod by the organization for her role in the Sci-Fi Channel flick Phantom Force. Next up for the 35-year-old: the independent film Tough Like Wearing Dreadlocks.
As Ruby, Amy Smart was Scott Foley's soft-spoken girlfriend, but in 2004 she held the eye of Ashton Kutcher in The Butterfly Effect. Smart, 28, who's engaged to actor Brandon Williams ( Mean Creek), has since appeared in Starsky amp Hutch and is at work on the Chris Klein romantic comedy Just Friends.
