The Today Show made the cast reunion happen. In the segment the characters Smalls, Ham, Squints, DeNunez, Yeah-Yeah, Timmy, Bertram and Repeat made an appearance.
Marty York known as the character Yeah-Yeah in the movie, opened up about the legacy of the film and what effect its had on his life.
“It’s been crazy, it definitely gets you in places for free,” he joked, eliciting laughs from his co-stars. “You can’t walk through a Las Vegas casino without someone yelling, ‘Yeah-Yeah!'”
If the actors aren’t known by name, the characters they played in the movie are. NBA player Kevin Durant has a picture of Ham as his Twitter photo.
“I am Kevin Durant,” joked Patrick Renna.
The actor Michael Vitar who played Benny “The Jet” didn’t attend the reunion. Vitar gave up on acting and became an L.A. firefighter.
Renna also talked about having the team back together again”Seeing these guys, some of them I haven’t seen in 25 years,” he said. “But it is just like we’re back.”
