26 Years After 'Hook' Came Out, The Lost Boys Actually Did Grow Up
While it wasn't beloved by critics or audiences at the time of its release in 1991, Hook has gone on to be a fan-favorite family movie worldwide, and is considered by many to be the best movie adaptation of Peter Pan. While most people remember its star-studded cast featuring Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Bob Hoskins, and Julia Roberts, one of the most important parts of the movie is the Lost Boys.
The boys were the loudest, most rambunctious gang of children ever, and it's their knack for causing trouble and crude jokes that gets Williams' Peter Banning to remember his true self as Peter Pan. So whatever happened to the actors who played them? Some of the answers to that might surprise you!
Alex Zuckerman - Latchboy
The curly-haired Lost Boy went on to have other roles in movies like The Adventures of Huck Finn and Blank Check while also voicing one of the lead characters in The Oz Kids, but largely retired from acting at the end of the 90s.
Ahmad Stoner - No Nap
He mostly spent the 90s doing small parts on TV shows like Roseanne, Sister Sister, and Sabrina The Teenage Witch before opting to retire from acting and work more behind the scenes. Some of his most recent work has been on the online video series No Chill.
Jasen Fisher - Ace
He has acting credits in two other massively popular 90s family movies (The Witches and Parenthood) but Hook was his last major role. He now makes a living as a poker player and golf caddy.
James Madio - Don't Ask
Madio has come a long way since his very first role as Don't Ask! He's appeared in numerous TV shows, including some major roles in shows like Band of Brothers and USA High, as well as appearing in movies like Jersey Boys. He's also written and produced several short films!
Isaiah Robinson - Pockets
Hook was his only major movie acting role, but that's not to say Robinson hasn't been up to anything. He went on to study music and theater at Columbia College, sang as a part of the famous "Chicago Children's Choir," and continues to perform in theater to this day!

Thomas Tulak - Too Small
The tiniest member of the Lost Boys has had a few sporadic roles over the years, as well as working as a director for the TV mini-series Chronicles of the Dragon. He has a degree in film and video production, as well as a Youtube channel called The Easily Amused Group Presents Dinomy's Video Blog!
Raushan Hammond - Thud Butt
Although he's had a few small roles here and there, Hammond has instead focused on pursuing other arts that he's interested in - namely, working as a magician, a musician, and a comedian. That's not to say he's abandoned filmmaking entirely though; in 2011, he directed and starred in a movie called 24 Hours In Las Vegas!
Dante Basco - Rufio
Dante has kept acting all these years, with several roles in both live-action and cartoons to his name. Audiences today probably know him best as the voice of Prince Zuko in Avatar: The Last Airbender as well as General Iroh in its sequel series, The Legend of Korra. He's also been in cult favorites like But I'm A Cheerleader, Take the Lead, and 30 Something...else.
