Halloween H20 is not only a Halloween favorite, but a horror classic fans watch each Halloween season. Have you ever wondered where the iconic Halloween H20 cast is now? We answer this, below!

Halloween H20: 20 Years Later sees Michael Myers return in this American slasher masterpiece. Now, I’ll admit, I was a little late to the game here. While I watched most Halloween movies years ago, and continued to rewatch them each Halloween season, it wasn’t until recently that I watched H20, and wow — is it an unpopular opinion to say this is my favorite movie from the franchise? I don’t know why I would always skip this one.

I can’t wait to watch Halloween Kills soon, but I doubt it will live up to the fun thrills H20 delivers.

If you watch it for the first time today, you’ll recognize many, many faces. Of course, the most recognizable is Jamie Lee Curtis. I love how Curtis can tackle any role she takes on with perfection. She’s an iconic Scream Queen, but can also deliver stunning drama and comedy performances. But do you recognize anyone else?

Halloween H20 cast today

Let’s see where the Halloween H20 cast is today and what they did after being part of this movie:

Jamie Lee Curtis

We’ll begin with the movie’s biggest star. Jamie Lee Curtis plays Laurie Strode not only in this movie, but others in the franchise, no matter how complicated the Michael Myers storyline gets.

After H20, Curtis appeared in Drowning Mona, Daddy and Them, Halloween: Resurrection, Freaky Friday, You Again, Veronica Mars, New Girl, NCIS, Scream Queens, among many other projects. Curtis will also return as Laurie Strode in Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends (2022).

Josh Hartnett

Was there anyone in your group of friends who wasn’t in love with Josh Hartnett as a teen? I didn’t think so! In the movie, Hartnett plays John Tate, Laurie’s son.

After H20, Hartnett went on to star in multiple projects, some of my favorite include Pearl Harbor, 40 Days and 40 Nights, Sin City, She’s Missing, Penny Dreadful, Die Hart, and Paradise Lost. 

Adam Arkin

Laurie’s love interest, who died too soon, can be seen in Mission, Off Season, A Serious Man, The sessions, and, most recently, Pig

Michelle Williams

Williams found quick success after being part of the Halloween H20 cast, though she had already made a name for herself before. The actress can be seen in A Hole in One, The Baxter, The Hottest State, Brokeback Mountain, Deception, Blue Valentine, Shutter Island, My Week with Marilyn, Wonderstruck, I Feel Pretty, and many more.

Michelle Williams can be seen next in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and she’s working on The Fabelmans, currently filming.

LL Cool J

LL Cool J is best known for his music, but he also has a successful acting career under his belt! His movies and shows include, In Too Deep, Deep Blue Sea, Charlie’s Angels, Kingdom Come, Mindhunters, and NCIS.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Finally, we have JGL! Gordon-Levitt was still checking out the scene when he joined the Halloween H20 cast, but now he’s a triple threat as actor, director, and even writer.

Some of JGL’s projects include 10 Things I Hate About You, Manic, Treasure Planet, The lookout, Killshot, 500 Days of Summer, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Inception, Don Jon, Looper, Project Power, The Trial of the Chicago 7, The Mindy Project, and, most recently, his in Mr. Cormanwhich he also directs and writes.
