Where's The Cast of 'ER' Now?

If you didn't watch at least one episode of ER when it was on TV, did you even grow up in the 90s?

The original medical drama was basically the best thing to happen to cable, and with 15 seasons it was easy to watch and get attached.

With that many episodes, a lot of characters came and went.

Obviously we couldn't go through every single character and do a "where are they now" because that would take 24 years, but we sought out some of the main doctors and a couple important nurses who really impacted the entire series.

Sorry if we missed your favorite...but also, your favorite should be all of them.

Anthony Edwards

Dr. Mark Greene made us all weep with his letter to the ER staff after he died, but now Anthony Edwards is out there winning awards for best producer. You go, Dr Greene!

George Clooney

I mean, really? Do I need to do this one? Dr. Doug Ross is doing just FINE.

Sherry Stringfield

Dr. Susan Lewis was the voice of reason and kept us feeling safe until she left the show in 2005. Now, Stringfield is just coming off a role on Under The Dome and is still picking up guest appearances on shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Julianna Marguilles

Carol Hathaway was as strong as they come. Working through her pregnancy (TWINS!) and never stopping. Now, Marguilles is coming off an incredibly successful series in The Good Wife and has no intentions of slowing down.

Noah Wyle

Full disclosure: Dr. John Carter was my first TV crush and I'm still hopelessly in love with him. Noah Wyle headlined his own TV series on TNT called "Falling Skies", an alien invasion drama. He's now lined up to star in a CBS pilot "Perfect Citizen" starting this fall.

Eriq La Salle

Dr. Peter Benton was that guy we all hated but also loved to death. Him hugging Carter when John realized he needed to go to rehab was one of the most moving moments of the entire series. Now, La Salle is sitting pretty with his role in the Wolverine franchise.

Scott Grimes

Remember when Dr. Archie Morris found out he had a ton of kids through a sperm bank and tried to find them all? Classic Morris. Grimes has kept up in show business, with roles on Family Guy, American Dad, Justified, and has a new show coming out called Orville.

Ming-Na

Dr. Jing-Mei 'Deb' Chen was someone we grew to love. She took a hiatus from the show to voice Mulan and that's 100% fine. Now, she's kicking-ass on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Laura Innes

In hindsight, there was no real reason to hate Dr. Kerry Weaver. She was there to do a job and was trying to do it her best. Although her attitude could have use some work. Innes has been out of the spotlight for a while, with her last role occurring in 2012 as a guest on Warehouse 13.

Goran Visnjic

I still have nightmares about Dr. Luka Kovac being kidnapped in the safari. I legitimately thought he was going to die. Now, Visnjic is still acting, and currently stars in the show Timeless.

Paul McCrane

Dr. Robert Romano may be the only person whose worst accident with a helicopter was not when he lost his arm. I mean, really. Can this guy have worse luck? Now, McCrane is still acting thought not as frequently. He appeared in a couple episodes of Under the Dome in 2015.

Sharif Atkins

Dr. Michael Gallant was a beautiful soul who died protecting his country. He was just...he was so good. Atkins just ended a 5 year role on the show White Collar and is taking a few smaller roles here and there.

Shane West

Dr. Ray Barnett belongs with Neela AND IF ANYONE SAYS OTHERWISE I'LL FIGHT YOU. West just ended his role in Nikita and is now starring in the show Salem. He also is aging like fine wine.

Parminder Nagra

Dr. Neela Rasgotra had a rough go for SURE. Her husband dies at war and then her best friend loses both his legs in a car accident that people blame her for. Yikes. Nagra is now pulling double duty, starring in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Fortitude.

Alex Kingston

Dr. Elizabeth Corday was charming, yet also someone I did not care for through the whole series. She was...blah? But Kingston herself is wonderful. Most recently she guest starred in the Gilmore Girls revival as Rory Gilmore's eccentric boss.

Maura Tierney

Abby Lockhart went through hell and back with addiction, her mom's mental illness, and her struggles while Luka was in Croatia helping his family. She was a fighter though, just like Tierney in real life who beat breast cancer in 2009. Now, Tierney is starring in The Affair and also had a small role on The Good Wife.

Mekhi Phifer

Watching Dr. Greg Pratt KNOW he's dying while being worked on by his friends in the ER was probably the worst thing I've ever had to watch on TV. My heart still aches for him. Phifer is still acting today, with roles in shows like Frequency and Secret City.
