Where Are They Now?
She’s A He? Snakkle Catches Up With The Academy Award-Winning Cast Of Tootsie, 31 Years Later!
"I was a better man with you as a woman than I ever was with a woman as a man.” No truer words have ever been spoken by… well, a man dressed as a woman to the woman he loves. When the detail-oriented Dorsey hears of a casting call for the soap opera Southwest General, he goes for it… but as “Dorothy Michaels.” Chaos (and comedy) ensues as Michael dressed as “Dorothy” falls for his lovely costar, becomes a TV sensation, and his life gets soapy in more ways than one. Tootsie and its all-star cast were nominated for a whopping ten Academy Awards! Read on to find out where they are now. By Brittany Carson

Hoffman was really on a roll after his hilarious role in Tootsie. In 1988 he starred in Barry Levinson’s Rain Man as the autistic Raymond Babbitt and won himself an Academy Award. The A-list actor continues to challenge his versatility with a variety of different roles, you may remember him as Captain Hook costarring with Robin Williams in Spielberg’s Hook (1991) or his voice as Shifu in Kung Fu Panda (2008). Outside of film, Hoffman lives with his second wife, Lisa, and their four children.
