10 Things I Hate About You Has One Of The Best Casts Of All Time

Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 12.09.22 PM

So last night after Maryland beat Iowa, I was looking for something to watch. Was flipping around, and landed on 10 Things I Hate About You. Now let me say this for?the kids that read this site- if you haven't seen?10 Things I Hate About You, you are missing out. I don't think I saw it until college and it's?just a good movie through and through. The crazy thing about it though is it has one of the most all star casts of any movie, ever. Top to bottom, front to back, star after star after star. So not only is it a funny, heartwarming film, it's jam packed with stars and?can go nose to nose with any other movie in history. Note: I know everyone worth their weight has seen this movie, but it's easier to write this blog for the unfortunate souls who haven't (but with spoilers). Let's take a look:

Recognize this heart throb dream boat? Heath Ledger is the bad boy with the soft heart in TTIHAY. You would have never imagined he would grow up and play the Joker in one of the best roles in movie history. Not that his acting isn't good, but it's hard to see someone go from this:

RIP Heath.

Next up, my girl Alex Mack.

Her name is really Larisa Oleynik and she is the girl next door dime piece in 10 Things. Absolute dime.

Those white pants though. I am shocked she didn't become a mega star. This guy put it best on Twitter last night:

Could not have said it better myself. Alex Mack->Bianca->fell off the Earth. She should have been the cute girl in movies for the next decade after 10 Things. I hope she has a comeback in the worst way.

Maybe you recognize this guy?

Probably the biggest star out of all them, my guy Joseph Gordon-Levitt. After he crushed it in Inception he was the biggest movie start on the planet for a year or 2. He is in everything and he slays in everything, not to mention how dope he was in Angels in the Outfield.

His character always kills it, as he gets Bianca even though she's a bitch for the first half of the movie because every guy wants a piece of that ass.

Next up, the most annoying character in the movie, Julia Stiles.

Worst older sister of all time. The entire movie all she does is make Bianca sit at home because she has a stick up her ass. I don't know how Bianca dealt with it. But Julia Stiles actually has a tonnnn of hits under her belt. She crushed the teen movie circuit for a bit with O and Save The Last Dance, got cast in all the Bourne movies, was nominated for a freaking Emmy and Golden Globe for Dexter, and is still kicking. Want to feel old? Julia Stiles is 34 years old.

Andrew fucking Keegan. One of those names that takes you way, wayyyy back. You don't really know what he's famous for, but you know that you know him from somewhere. Just another one of those late-90s teeny bopper heart throbs who is gone but never forgotten. And now he runs his own cult in California, so that's cool as shit.

You know what I just found out? Chastity is Mrs. Dwyane Wade. Gabrielle Union. Also the same chick in Bring It On. Like, this cast is so stacked I just found out Mrs. Wade is in the movie (and an actress). Incredible.

That freak a deak? Allison Janney. The chick from The West Wing. Looked up her wiki real quick and yep, she has 7 Emmy awards. She's in so many freaking movies and TV shows it's absurd. Another character that I didn't even realize that she was who she was.

There's a few more too. Mike the AV kid is apparently super famous

The coffee girl was married to Landon Donavon and starred in Rules of Engagement, a TV show I never watched

And the dad, the awful dad who goes hand in hand with his awful daughter, podcasts on Carrola's podcasting network

I'll tell you what, I didn't set out to write a blog about 10 Things I Hate About You today. But sometimes you have to pay your respects where they are due. Every movie since has copied, borrowed, and stolen from this gem. Props to this movie, this cast, and the black teacher who I forgot about until just now.
