This is what the Malcolm Mittendrin stars look like in 2021!
Believe it or not, Malcolm In The Middle was shot in the period 2000-2006. Do you feel old now? Certainly not as old as some of the actors. Because with many of them, it's hard to recognize them!
1. Bryan Cranston played Hal Wilkerson, the sympathetic but completely indecisive father and husband, in "Malcolm in the Middle."
I'm sure you know some of the other terrific roles he's played. Especially in Breaking Bad, he was absolutely terrific as a leading man. He also starred in movies like Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, Rock of Ages, Argo, Kung Fu Panda 3, Why Him?, Isle of Dogs and several others.
2. Craig Lamar Traylor played Stevie
It's not that Malcolm was necessarily a career killer for most involved, it's just that Bryan Cranston was so awesome that there was no success left for anyone else. Malcolm's asthmatic friend Stevie has only acted four times since 2006, and he completely changed. He became a tattoo-artist and life his life to the fullest.
3. kenneth mars played Otto
Kenneth Mars was a legend long before he appeared as Francis' boss on the ranch in Malcolm Amidst the Original 1967 version of The Producers, Young Frankenstein, and even as the voice of Triton in Disney's The Little Mermaid. Mars' last role was Grandfather Longneck in The Land Before Time, when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that forced him to retire from acting. Mars passed away in 2011, so he's not doing too much these days. Rest in Peace. He played a legendary character in this series.
4. Piama – Emy Coligado
Emy was one kind of a woman. So special how she handled her family. But when Emy Coligado's Piama Tananahaakna was introduced to the hot-blooded matriarch as her new and totally unexpected 19-year-old daughter-in-law, Lois met her match. She had such a strong personality that not everybody likes her character too much.
5. Jane Kaczmarek played Lois
Since she played the female "Head" of the family in the FOX series, Jane appeared in television shows such as The Simpsons, Raising The Bar, The Middle, Playing House and Jake and the Never Land Pirates. She also starred in movies such as The Boat Builder, Wolves at the Door, CHiPs and 6 Balloons. If you see her now you gonna feel old. Are you ready for this?
6. Christopher Masterson played Francis
Malcolm's elder brother seems to be the only one of the kids who stays involved in Hollywood, which is pretty obligatory when you're constantly paying dues to the Church of Scientology. For a while his girlfriend was Laura Prepon from the 70s show. At the moment he is also a DJ working in the USA.
7. Catherine Lloyd Burns
After starring as Malcolm's adoring teacher Caroline Miller in the first two seasons, Burns published her first book, It Hit Me Like a Ton of Bricks, in 2007 and then appeared in several episodes of TBS' Search Party. She hasn't had any major roles in Hollywood since then, but she hasn't completely retired as an actress.
8. David Anthony Higgins played Craig
The pharmacy-worker Craig is one of the nicest guys ever in this series. After Malcolm in the Middle he had some small roles in American Horror Story and Californication. It's nice that he's still acting. He never quit!
9. Will Jennings played Kyle
Will Jennings is not only known from Malcolm in the middle, but also from series like Sabrina! He also starred in Nash Bridges. His last appearance was in the series Quacks in which he plays a medical student. In Malcolm he also played only 1 year from 2000 - 2001.
10. Justin Berfield played Reese
Malcolm's terrible older brother gave up acting after the series ended and made only one television appearance in 2010. Today, Berfield works as CCO of Virgin Produced, a TV-focused offshoot of Virgin Group, producing films you may have heard of like Limitless, Jobs, and the critically trashed Movie 43. Unfortunately, Virgin Produced has only broken the 30 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes once, so "chief creative officer" may not be the right job for Berfield.
