Where Are They Now?

Take one Greek singleton, throw in an all-American guy, and what do you get? Try the 2002 sleeper hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which grossed over $368 million worldwide. The Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson-produced film went on to become the highest-grossing romantic comedy of 2002â€”and of all time. Written by and starring Nia Vardalos, the Joel Zwick-helmed film told the story of Toula Portokalos, a single 30-year-old woman who feels stuck in her life as the unmarried â€śfailedâ€ť sister of the Portokalos family. After Toula takes charge of her life, she meets the handsome and utterly white-Anglo-Saxon-Protestant Ian Miller (John Corbett), falling madly in love. Hilarity ensues when Toulaâ€™s Greek-to-the-nines family first disapproves and then wildly enfolds Ian into their Olympic embrace. Hereâ€™s a salute to our favorite Greek family and what they are up to today.
