As fans know, Remember the Titans follows the real-life tale of an African-American football coach as he tries to integrate a high school team back in the early ’70s. And the film was a hit, grossing more than four times its modest $30m budget at the box office after its release at the turn of the century. But how have its principal cast fared since the movie’s success? Well, let’s find out.
20. Denzel Washington (Herman Boone)
Denzel Washington was already a megastar at the time of Remember the Titans’s 2000 release, and he has gone on to even greater things since playing revolutionary coach Herman Boone. There’s been a Best Actor Oscar for Training Day, for instance, as well as a Tony Award for his performance in Fences and not just one but three acclaimed directorial efforts to boot.
19. Will Patton (Bill Yoast)
Will Patton played Bill Yoast, the coach demoted to make way for Boone and the man who ultimately helps his successor keep his job by threatening to expose the racism within the game. The two-time Obie Award winner has since played Colonel Dan Weaver in the sci-fi drama Falling Skies and Jackson Haisley in The Agency.
