then and now: CAST of E.T. - THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL (1982)

In honor of one of film's most beloved sci-fi classics, I give you the latest retrospective from the series Then and Now on Steven Spielberg's E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial. Now, the difficulty faced with a film like this is that for some of the younger actors, this was one of their first films. So they don't look so different from the time they filmed E.T. And without further ado...

Henry Thomas as Elliott
In the 1981 movie Raggedy Man
and in the 2010 movie Dear John

Dee Wallace as Mary
In the 1979 movie 10
and in the 2010 movie The Guardian

Drew Barrymore as Gertie
In the 1982 movie E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial
and in the 2009 movie Everybody's Fine

Peter Coyote as Keys
In 1979
and in a 2009 episode of the TV series FlashForward

Is it weird I hated Drew Barrymore the most in ET?

@DEZMOND True. Even as a aging beauty queen in Grey Gardens she's a cutie. :)

@Simon Oh no! Even when she comments on the feet?
