He Was Everybody's Favorite '90s Bad Boy, But What Has Skeet Ulrich Been Up To Since?

- Page 1

If you were a budding teenager during the 90s, there's a pretty good chance that a bunch of times you went to check out the latest teen comedy or drama at the movie theater, you found yourself face to face with the man with the unlikeliest of names, Skeet Ulrich.

Gazette Review

Born Bryan Ray Trout in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1970, he eventually developed his acting name from a combination of his little-league nickname "Skeeter" (from his small stature), as well as his first stepfather's last name, Ulrich.

Warner Bros.

Despite initially starting out as a student of Marine Biology (seriously, can you imagine him studying whales?), Ulrich soon switched to acting, which he studied at New York University, even catching the eye of playwright David Mamet. From there, he started getting bit roles in movies like Weekend At Bernie's and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but it was in the 90s that he truly began to come into his own.

After being cast as Winona Rider's awful boyfriend in 1996's Boys, producers seemed to zero in on the fact that Ulrich was very, very good at playing assholes. So much so, in fact, that he got cast as two massively memorable assholes within the same year: Chris Hooker in The Craft, and Billy Loomis in Scream.

New Line Cinema

Afterwards though, Ulrich seemed to largely disappear after a few small roles thoughout the 90s. So, we've all been asking ourselves: what happened to the guy?

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more.
