Pretty much everyone came back for the Freaks and Geeks reunion photo

Judd Apatow is guest-editing the first comedy issue of Vanity Fair, and this means he wields slightly more power over many people than usual. That's how he got nearly every single person who has ever appeared on his cult favorite show Freaks and Geeks to come together for a really excellent reunion photo -- students, teachers, parents, they're all here! (Absent: Rashida Jones, Ben Foster, JoAnna Garcia, Ben Stiller, Leslie Mann, and Shia LeBoeuf, if we're being really technical about it.) A sneak-peek of the group shot is here, but VF has a great collection of smaller groups of the cast. A fun reminder: Freaks and Geeks went off the air in 2000. Remember that year? It feels both five minutes and one million years ago at the same time! (via Gawker)


  1. Damn, I stil miss this show.  I can’t believe it was so long ago as well.  Basically, the exact opposite of my reaction to high school being over.

  2. J. Elvis Weinstein (the first Tom Servo on MST3K’s real first season) is in this photo, as he was a writer/producer. Sadly his MST3K counterpart Trace Beaulieu (Crow/Dr. Forrester) isn’t. He played the biology teacher on Freaks and Geeks. Heck, Joel Hodgson even showed up on the show. One of my favorite moments was watching it and getting entirely too excited by Trace and Joel popping up.

  3. It’s good to see Steven Lea Sheppard there.  He’s a really good guy and it’s nice to see him included on this sort of thing.

    1. And he was at one point internet famous.  I remember chatting with him in White Wolf role playing forums years ago.
