This Is What The Cast Of “The Cosby Show” Looks Like Now
1. Bill Cosby (Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable)
At the age off 77, Bill Cosby is still on top of his game. He’s made hilarious (and somewhat bewildering) appearances on Late Night and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and starting Nov. 9, he’ll be leading â€œConversations,â€ a gathering at the Smithsonian Museum of African Art about the cultural importance of quilting as art.
2. Phylicia Rashad (Clair Huxtable)
Clair Huxtable was originally meant to be a plumber in the union, but it was Bill Cosby’s wife’s idea to give her a more professional career.
Over the past decade, Rashad has appeared in many films and TV shows, including The Cleveland Show and Psych.
3. Lisa Bonet (Denise Huxtable)
Lisa’s character was somewhat of a fashion icon on the show and carried over her super influential style to A Different World, a spinoff of The Cosby Show. Bonet is the mother of ZoÃ« Kravitz (whose father is Lenny Kravitz), and she’s married to Jason Momoa aka Drogo from Game of Thrones.
4. Tempestt Bledsoe (Vanessa Huxtable)
Tempestt had her own talk show, The Tempestt Bledsoe Show in the ’90s and more recently starred in the short-lived, Jimmy Fallon-produced NBC sitcom Guys with Kids.
5. Malcolm-Jamal Warner (Theo Huxtable)
A few years after the show, Malcolm teamed up with comedian Eddie Griffin on the show Malcolm and Eddie, and more recently has starred in Sons of Anarchy.
6. Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy Huxtable)
Pulliam has been in many TV shows and movies since her time playing the youngest of the Huxtable children. She’s set to be one of the contestants on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice.
7. Raven-SymonÃ© (Olivia Kendall)
Who didn’t love Olivia? Her cute, blunt, nature made her a phenomenon.
SymonÃ© later starred in That’s So Raven and was also in the Broadway musical Sister Act in 2012.
8. Sabrina Le Beauf (Sondra Huxtable Tibideaux)
Whitney Houston was actually considered to play the role of Sondra, who was the oldest of Clair and Cliff’s children. Sabrina almost wasn’t cast because she is only 10 years younger than Phylicia Rashad.
Le Beauf was one of the voices in Bill Cosby’s animated series Fatherhood, which aired on Nick At Nite and was based off of Cosby’s standup.
9. Geoffrey Owens (Elvin Tibideaux)
While not appearing in too many movies and TV shows like his other co-stars, Owens teaches an acting class in New York City.
