Then + Now: See the Gang From MTV’s ’2gether’
They started on a show as a joke, meant to mock popular boy bands of the time, but somehow fictional group 2gether became fairly successful in their own right. There’s even been rumors of a reunion. Not bad for a band that started out as a goof on an MTV show.
Ever wonder what happened to Mickey, Jerry, Chad, Doug and QT? Let’s take a look at the gang from 2Gether (and their co-stars) today!
Kevin P. Farley (Doug Linus)
Then: Before becoming part of 2gether, Kevin Farley, younger brother to comedian Chris Farley, had a few small parts in the movies of ‘SNL’ alum, including ‘The Waterboy’ and ‘Dirty Work.’ He was also on the series ‘Misguided Angels.’
Now: Farley has had countless small spots on TV shows, including ‘Joey,’ ‘That’s So Raven,’ and ‘Til Death,’ among others. More recently, he was in ‘To Appomattox’ and ‘Paranormal Movie.’
Noah Bastian (Chad Linus)
Then: 2gether was Bastian’s big break, and he managed to snag a few parts after that, notably in ‘Maybe It’s Me.’
Now: A Kickstarter campaign to get funding for a documentary about Bastian’s struggles with drug addiction failed to make its $15,000. The movie is called ‘Noah: Clean, Prison, or Dead.’ He recently opened up about his addiction to meth and has hopes for a 2gether reunion.
Evan Farmer (Jerry O’Keefe)
Then: Before joining the 2gether crew, Farmer provided the voice of Schrecter on ‘Daria.’
Now: Farmer hosted three seasons of ‘While You Were Out.’ In 2010, he became the host of CMT’s ‘Top 20 Countdown.’ He later filmed pilots for two A&E series and is a dad with two kids today. Yes, time does fly.
Alex Solowitz (Mickey Parke)
Then: If Alex Solowitz looked familiar when 2gether hit the small screen, it’s probably because you recognized him from the Drew Barrymore rom-com ‘Never Been Kissed.’
Now: Since playing tough guy Mickey Parke, Solowitz has appeared in ‘Ghost World,’ ‘Alpha Dog,’ ‘The Onion Movie’ and something called ‘Buttwhistle.’ Look for him in the films ‘All American Christmas Carol’ and ‘Dead End.’
Alan Blumenfeld (Bob Buss)
Then: Before taking up the part of 2gether’s manager, Bob Buss, Alan Blumenfeld had several small, but memorable, parts in TV shows like ‘The Golden Girls,’ ‘Family Ties,’ and ‘Life Goes On,’ among many, many more.
Now: Blumenfeld has stayed busy since the 2gether days, to put it mildly, with close to 60 credits to his name in that time. Among them are spots on ‘Becker,’ ‘Gilmore Girls,’ ‘Heroes’ and ‘Arrested Development.’
Tyler Labine (Noel Andrew Davies)
Then: Before being cast as record label baddie Noel Davies in the 2gether movie, Tyler Labine played Jimmy Farrell on two seasons of ‘Breaker High.’ He was also a stoner on two episodes of the ‘X Files.’
Now: It’s hard to tell without the terrible bleach job, but you hopefully recognize Labine from the brilliant horror comedy ‘Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.’ More recently, he was playing Dr. Doug Jackson on the short-lived series ‘Animal Practice.’
Kandyse McClure (Danielle)
Then: Around the same time as she was filming the part of Noel Davies’ secretary (one of her first roles), Kandyse McClure began her run as Katherine Cabot in ‘Higher Ground.’
Now: Of course, McClure probably looks more familiar to you as Lt. Dualla from ‘Battlestar Galactica.’ More recently. she made an appearance as alcoholic monster hunter Dr. Clementine Chasseur on the Netflix series ‘Hemlock Grove.’
Michael Cuccione (Jason ‘QT’ McKnight)
Michael Cuccione had already begun a battle against cancer when he joined the cast of ’2gether.’ During the filming of the show’s second season, he began experiencing respiratory problems and missed quite a bit of filming and performances. After a minor car accident, he was hospitalized and died a few weeks later of respiratory failure. The Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Foundation was set up in his honor.
