Not all ’90s TV stars that we grew up watching have disintegrated into oblivion, you know. Actors such as Scott Foley, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Claire Danes and others have proved their TV success just recently–and some have even won Emmys! Click through the photos below to see the stars who’ve headlined two (or more) successful TV shows, both from yesteryear and today.
Scott Foley, Scandal. Whether he's playing Noel on Felicity or Jake on Scandal, Scott Foley wins the best on-screen boyfriend award. Who wouldn't want this guy protecting her, you know?
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife. Playing a nurse on ER or a litigator on The Good Wife, Julianna Margulies has always been a great TV role model for working women.
Courteney Cox, Cougar Town. Matt LeBlanc's got Episodes, but Courteney, aka Monica Gellar, has probably the most well-known TV show featuring a former Friends star, Cougar Town. The best part about this show is all the Friends cameos!
David Duchovny, Californication. From Fox on X-Files to a fox in the bedroom on Californication, David Duchovny is one of the sexiest TV stars of our generation, hands down.
Claire Danes, Homeland. Did you ever predict that Angela Chase from My So-Called Life would grow up to be a bipolar CIA agent on one of Showtime's most popular dramas? Claire Danes has come a long way.
Holly Marie Combs, Pretty Little Liars. It isn't too shocking that Holly Marie Combs, most known for her role on Charmed, plays Aria's mom Ella on PLL. The witchcraft of Charmed and the creepiness of Rosewood is basically the same kinda thing.
Alyson Hannigan, How I Met Your Mother. Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer has played Lily Aldrin for the past 8 seasons on HIMYM. But let's be real—she'll still always be known as the girl from band camp to us.
Patricia Heaton, The Middle. Patricia Heaton is the best at playing the hilarious mom and housewife. She's done it twice already, with this show and with Everybody Loves Raymond!
Melissa Joan Hart, Melissa and Joey. From playing Clarissa to Sabrina to good ol' Melissa, MJH is quite the TV veteran. She's managed to carry her fan base with her to her current ABC Family sitcom, Melissa & Joey.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep. She's won Emmys as Elaine on Seinfeld and Emmys as Selina Mayer on Veep. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is anything but a washed up '90s has been.
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad. The grumpy old dad on Malcolm in the Middle grew up to be the hottest meth dealer on TV! That came out wrong, but you know what we mean. And yes, Breaking Bad is over, but it will NEVER be forgotten. Ever.
