Grease will be the word this weekend, as FOX is set to premiere their live musical special derived from the 1971 theatre production (which was succeeded by the legendary 1978 film)! A majority of pop culture aficionados are already well versed with the classic, but for the new generation it will be diving lesson into the world of Broadway.

Known faces like Carly Rae Jepsen (Frenchy), Vanessa Hudgens (Betty Rizzo), Julianne Hough (Sandy) and Aaron Tveit (Danny Zuko) will all star in FOX’s Grease: Live, playing roles that we all loved growing up. Yet have you ever wondered what the original film cast has been up to lately all these decades later?

We’ve comprised a gallery of all the main Grease characters that will provide an update on the older actors like John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John and Didi Conn for the younger fans, as well as an insight of the newer cast’s entertainment credentials.

Flip through the photo gallery up top, and catch Grease: Live when it airs on Fox January 31 at 7 p.m. EST.
