Here's What Happened To The Larson Family When They Made It 'Home For The Holidays'

- Page 1


It was the perfect storm of the worst way to spend Thanksgiving, all rolled up into a hilarious and heart-tugging film that had us switching back and forth between roaring laughter at Tommy's antics, scoffing at Russell's pitiful attempts at being a person, and questioning just what the hell is going to happen with Leo and Claudia?!

We really felt for Claudia Larson's dramatic introduction. When her daughter decides to cut out on Thanksgiving celebrations just as she loses her job (right after making out with her now-former boss), it seems like Claudia is going to have to toughen it out with the family for turkey dinner.

There was mystery, suspense, scorching insults, and sparks flying every which way during this holiday maelstrom, and when all the dust settled, everything seemed to turn out for the best.

But what ever happened to these characters we came to love after their trying weekend?

Holly Hunter

Following her leading role in the family comedy movie, Hunter went on to produce the 2007 drama Saving Grace, where she also played the starring character.

She has had a busy career in acting, starring in many famous movies such as Always, Copycat, Crash, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Incredibles, and more recently, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

She has received seven Emmy nominations throughout her career, and won dozens of other awards for her top-notch performances.

Dylan McDermott

The pseudo-boyfriend of Claudia's brother Tommy had us questioning his intentions, and McDermott pulled off the role perfectly.

He's since become a heartthrob on many other films and TV shows. Perhaps his real claim to fame came from his role as head lawyer in legal drama series The Practice, where he won himself a Golden Globe award.

Now-a-days, he is well-known for his revealing role in American Horror Story, though is still appearing regularly in other dramas like Hostages, and Stalker.

Claire Danes

She played the run-away daughter that led to her mother attending the crazy events of the Larson Thanksgiving dinner, but she also had one of the most successful acting careers afterwards.

Danes has so far won three Emmy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and performed in both many award winning films and theater productions.

With hit after hit, Danes has appeared in now-classic productions such as Romeo+Juliet, My So-Called Life, Les Miserables, Pygmalion, Homeland, among many others.

Claudia would be so proud...

Curse Of 'The Mummy' - How The Classic Film Nearly Wiped Out Its Cast

If any movie proves that "they just don't make 'em like they used to," it's The Mummy.That's the The Mummy - as in the box office smash of 1999, to avoid any confusion with certain other films bearing the same name.The mystical adventure had action, laughs, and special effects that look amazing to this day - and they should, because they cost $150,000 per shot.While The Mummy gave audiences chills, making the movie was just as frightening for its cast.

I've Only Just Realized All Disney Princesses Are Missing A Body Part And I'm Bothered

During my childhood, there was never a moment I didn't wish I was a Disney princess. While I was partial to Belle, I felt a deep investment to all of the characters, who made me believe in happily-ever-afters. Growing up, I had watched each movie at least a dozen times, but I never realized something was missing, particularly, a body part.This isn't the only time the princesses have shared key attributes, as it was previously uncovered why they are predominately seen dressed in blue.DisneyIt's also interesting to note that most of their mothers have either passed away or
