Before He’s All That, the Netflix remake of the 1999 rom-com She’s All That, releases on Friday, catch up on what the original cast is up to now.
The ’90s film – which spawned the 2001 parody flick Not Another Teen Movie with Chris Evans – focused on popular jock Zack (Freddie Prinze Jr.) trying to turn “nerdy girl” Laney (Rachael Leigh Cook) into the prom queen after a bet with friends.

Following her portrayal of Laney Boggs, Rachael starred in a few dramas and thrillers, like Sally (2000), Get Carter (2000), and Antitrust (2001).
In 2001, she led the cast as the titular character of the cult classic, Josie and the Pussycats – a musical comedy based on the Archie Comics of the same name.
The film was written-directed by Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan, and it had a stacked cast that also included Tara Reid, Rosario Dawson, Alan Cumming, Parker Posey, Gabriel Mann, Paulo Costanzo, and Missi Pyle.
