What The Cast Of Who's The Boss Looks Like Today

In 1984, Who's the Boss? premiered on ABC. The comedy, about an unconventional family, formed when housekeeper Tony Micelli and his daughter Samantha moved in with Angela Bauer, her son Jonathan, and her mother, Mona, ran for eight seasons. By the time the series finale rolled around in 1992, it had become beloved to a generation of viewers. If the show's theme song isn't stuck in your head yet, it probably will be after you read this rundown of where the cast is now.

Alyssa Milano

Milano's career was launched by Who's the Boss?, but unlike many child stars, she didn't crash and burn when the show ended. She did try to move past the ingénue image with which she'd become associated while playing Samantha Micelli, by taking on more daring roles — including, playing Amy Fisher in the TV movie Casualties of Love: The Long Island Lolita Story. The actress then went on to appear on Spin City and Melrose Place, before spending eight seasons playing Phoebe Halliwell on the WB's Charmed, alongside Shannen Doherty, Hollie Marie Combs, and Rose McGowan.

Milano, now 44, continues to work in television and movies, including Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later, coming to Netflix in 2017. She's also moved into the political arena. In 2003, she was named a UNICEF ambassador and continues to work with the organization today, along with other charities. She also co-authored Hacktivist, a graphic novel about war and revolution. In addition to all that, Milano somehow found the time to get married, have two children, and start a clothing line.

Tony Danza

Danza continued with his acting career after the Who's the Boss? finale. He hosted his own talk show, The Tony Danza Show on ABC, he appeared in films such as Angels in the Outfield, dramas like Family Law, and The Practice, as well as the short-lived comedy The Tony Danza Show on NBC.

In 2009, though, he took a hard left out of acting for a time, when he started teaching 10th grade English at Northeast High School in Philadelphia — about which he wrote a book. His teaching job was also taped by A&E for a documentary called Teach. Danza also bought part of New York City's famed Alleva Dairy, the oldest cheese shop in the United States, where you can even eat a sandwich named for him.

Judith Light

After Who's the Boss? ended, Light, who was already a veteran television and film actor before the show, went on to star in Ugly Betty, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Phenom, as well as the film Save Me. It's on stage, though, where Light received the most accolades, including a Tony Award for "Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play," and a Drama Desk Award for "Best Featured Actress" for Other Desert Cities, as well as an Outer Critics Circle Award for Therese Raquin.

If you're not a theater-goer, you probably recognize Light from her role as Shelley Pfefferman in Amazon's award-winning original series, Transparent. Like her Who's the Boss? co-star, Tony Danza, who played Abbi's father in an episode of Comedy Central's Broad City, Light also has a connection to the show – Hannibal Buress's character, Lincoln, named a dog after her. "I watched it and I was so honored that they would choose me to be that dog!," Light told The Huffington Post. "I love that dog, and I love that they did it."

Danny Pintauro

Pintauro disappeared from television after Who's the Boss?. After coming out as gay in 1997 (the National Enquirer was planning to do so before he did), he went on graduate from Stanford University in 1998, where he studied English and continued to perform in theater. He married partner Wil Tabares in 2014, and in 2015, disclosed his past abuse of crystal meth in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. In that same interview, Pintauro announced that he had been HIV positive for 12 years. He joined the second season cast of Unsure/Positive, an original web series about a a young man living with HIV, in 2016.

Katherine Helmond

Like her Who's the Boss? co-star Judith Light, Katherine Helmond had a distinguished career as an actor before she joined the sitcom's cast as Angela's unconventional mother, Mona. In her post Mona life, Helmond appeared in several films and television shows, including True Blood and Melissa & Joey. She was nominated for an Emmy for her role as Lois Whelan, Debra's mother, on Everybody Loves Raymond, whom she played from 1996 until 2004.

Helmond died on Feb. 23, 2019, from complications due to Alzheimer's disease, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She was 89.
