Party of Five: They're Back!
As oldest brother Charlie on Party of Five, Fox reluctantly ran the Salinger household and went through his share of growing pains. He's now tending to other people's wounds on the ABC adventure-drama Lost, in which he plays a doctor who survives a plane crash. Offscreen, 38-year-old Fox plays dad to his 7-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son (with Italian-born wife Margherita).
Party's brainy sibling Julia is showing a sexier side, baring all in the erotic thriller When Will I Be Loved (in theaters now). "I decided my body is the best it's going to be," says the single actress, who has dated John Cusack. Of her career, the 31-year-old says, "I am just in a place now where I can be patient and wait for things I believe in."
Wolf, who portrayed conflicted brother Bailey, is now a medicine man: He plays an aggressive up-and-coming surgeon on the WB's Everwood. In May, 36-year-old Wolf – who was once engaged to Charmed star Alyssa Milano – married former Real World-er Kelley Limp in her native Fayetteville, Ark.

Party's earnest Sarah Reeves is coming back to TV: She'll star in A Christmas Carol: The Musical (airing Nov. 28 on NBC) and the Oxygen film Confessions of a Sociopathic Social Climber (due in March). The single actress, 25, also will hit the big screen, playing a Brit in the upcoming romantic comedy The Truth About Love.
Grimes, 33, who played loyal best friend Will to Scott Wolf's Bailey, still dwells in TV land: The father of two (daughter Madison, 5, and son Jackson Richard, 3, with wife Dawn) has had a recurring role as ER's resident slacker, Dr. Archie Morris, since last season.
Party fans got their wish when good-hearted former nanny Kirsten ended up with Charlie (Matthew Fox). In real life, Devicq (pronounced DUH-vick), 39, is married to actor Joseph Lyle Taylor, whom she met on the set of the short-lived 2001 legal drama 100 Centre Street. Now the L.A.-based actress has a recurring role as a firefighter's widow on the FX dramedy Rescue Me.
London, Party's sexy rebel Griffin, whose character married (and divorced) Julia Salinger, found religion as a pastor for two seasons on the WB's 7th Heaven. The single 31-year-old actor – who has also dabbled in directing (his 2001 antismoking video starred Dr. Jeffrey Wigand, whom Russell Crowe portrayed in the 1999 film The Insider) – will head to grittier territory when he guest-stars on Crossing Jordan this season.
She's almost 22 (her birthday is Sept. 30), but Chabert was a hit as a nasty teenager in this year's Lindsay Lohan movie Mean Girls. The single actress, who made a splash as Party's precocious little sister Claudia ("People still come up and hug me and say, 'You made me cry every week,' " she says), also will appear in the upcoming thriller Shadow of Fear and the teen comedy Dirty Deeds.
