The Cast Of 'Remember The Titans': Where Are They Now?
Before the 2000s, Disney's inspirational sports films leaned more toward the comedy genre as evidenced by such films as Cool Runnings and Angels in the Outfield. Remember the Titans initiated a change in tone for the genre.
As with most movies based on true stories, there was some dramatic licensing taken. For example, the championship game in Remember the Titans is not based on the real game that took place back in 1971. It is based on a close mid-season game that played out just as you see in the film. The real championship game was against a different school and was a 27-0 blowout. Another departure from the true-life story of the Titans is that Garry played in the championship game and a few days later had his accident.
The musical score of Remember the Titans has a legacy of its own. The music is used quite a bit in pro sports, including NBC's TV Olympic coverage. The score was also used during the 2008 Democratic National Convention and the subsequent presidential election. The movie is also known for its casting. Some of the stars in the movie were already known and others were just starting their careers. Watch the video above to see what these actors are doing today.
