Three Men and a Lady was a big hit in the mid-80s so it was only a matter of time before they released a sequel, and sure enough Three Men and a Little Lady followed in 1990, and whilst it wasn’t quite as successful as its predecessor, it certainly had its charm and its funny moments.
Twenty-Eight years is a long time, though, so let’s take a look at the cast from Three Men and a Little Lady then, and what they look like now – you may be surprised by how much, or how little, they have changed!
Peter – Tom Selleck
Tom Selleck was a huge name in the 80s and 90s and we’re pleased to see that he has continued to act since then, never being far from our screens, appearing in the likes of Friends, Boston Legal and Blue Bloods as Frank Reagan for 8 years!
Michael – Steve Guttenberg
Guttenberg was one of Hollywood’s go-to men in the 80s and 90s if they had a comedy and they wanted it to be a sure-fire hit at the box office, as this man was box office gold!
He has continued to act since, but has never been able to recreate the same kind of success he had during those years.
Jack – Ted Danson
Ted Danson was synonymous with the TV show, Cheers and so was a massive addition to the cast of Three Men and a Baby and Three Men and a Little Lady alike.
Danson has continued to have a very successful TV career, appearing in the likes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Good Place.
Sylvia – Nancy Travis
Nancy Travis was very well cast as Sylivia, Mary’s mum, and she has gone on to have a very successful career, especially on the small screen, where she has appeared in the likes of The Bill Engvall Show, Mr Mercedes and Last Man Standing.
Miss Lomax – Fiona Shaw
Fiona Shaw is a very talented British actress who has gone on to star in dozens of big productions on both the big and small screen, but who is recognised most now for playing Harry Potter’s horrible Aunt Petunia in the Harry Potter series of movies.
Shaw has also appeared in the likes of Empire, True Blood and Killing Eve so has proven herself a very versatile actress.
Mary – Robin Wiseman
It seemed like Three Men and a Little Lady could be the project to kick-start a very successful career for the young Robin Wiseman, but following this she only starred in a couple of other projects – Thunder in Paradise and TV movie, Keys.
Since then Wiseman has retired from acting and hasn’t reappeared on screen since!
Were you a fan of Three Men and a Little Lady? How did it compare to its prequel, Three Men and a Baby and which did you think was the better film? Are you surprised by how much, or maybe how little, some of the stars have changed since this film was released?
Tom Selleck barely looks any different! Let us know all of your thoughts in the comments as always!
