Did they get the Best of Both Worlds? Here’s the Hannah Montana cast then and now
Rico’s looking ROUGH
by Una Dabiero
Hannah Montana was… revolutionary. It was MORE than just a TV show. It was a TV show about famous people that sold arena shows. Beat that, fucking Victorious or any Nickelodeon show EVER. Obviously, Miley Cyrus is hella famous. Every time she sneezes, we see an update in PEOPLE. And I'll be honest, I've definitely drooled over coverage of her and Liam Hemsworth. They're the hottest couple ever. But you're probably wondering, where is the Hannah Montana cast now? Or at least, like, you want to see pictures of the Hannah Montana cast: then and now. Here's where the Hannah Montana cast is now, as of 2018.
Emily Osment, AKA Lilly Truscott
Let's be honest: Lilly, Miley's tomboy best friend, was an icon. This girl had anger management issues and the wardrobe of a girl who could longboard but still liked boys. Peak cool. Emily Osment is still super successful and she looks so much the same that it's spooky.
She's been on Freeform's Young and Hungry for years. It's ending this summer.
(I believe this was taken back in 2014?) Yesterday we officially closed the book on 71 episodes of hilarity, pure joy and absolute insanity. I’ve never fallen in love with comedy like this before and nothing makes me happier than to know we were able to make so many of you laugh these past five years. I thought working on a television show during my teenage years was hard…no no my friends, your early twenties are terrifying and I’m so very lucky I got to come to work every day and be surrounded by family who got me through it. Thank you David Holden, thank you Young & Hungry, you changed my life. We’ll be back June 20th for our final ten episodes on Freeform. On to the next! ???❤️
But don't worry, she has a new network comedy all lined up.
Emily is also still pursuing music. Never heard her stuff? Yeah, you're not alone. Her first EP and album kinda flopped.
But, here's hoping Emily's newest stuff sees much more success. She deserves it! Why? Because Disney probably fucked up her childhood. Lol. Also, she just seems… so nice.
Jason Earles, AKA Jackson Stewart
Y'all remember the 30-year-old man who played Miley's 16-year-old brother? Well, he's even older now.
He still posts about Hannah Montana a LOT.
But he seems to have a happy life. He has a pretty wife.
And he's doing some kind of mini-series? It has a few famous people in it.
Jason seems happy for a man in his 40s. And he still looks basically the exact same. He needs to tell me what young girl's blood he's sucking, tbh.
Moises Arias, AKA Rico Suave
I won't lie to you guys. This one is the most startling of them all. When we met Rico, he was a literal baby with Justin Bieber hair and crooked teeth. Now.. well just look:
I would say Moises looks strung out, but he's actually really successful.
He also has abs. I am TERRIFIED. But also maybe turned on just a little bit.
I still think this guy is a fucking weirdo and the dreads aren't a good look.
But… at least he isn't Orlando Brown.
Billy Ray Cyrus, AKA Billy Ray Stewart
Billy Ray Cyrus played Billy Ray, Miley's dad, on the show. As one of the oldest cast members he… doesn't look that different. Maybe a little more grey and chubby and tattooed, but no MAJOR differences. We would all still fuck, don't lie.
So, what's Billy Ray up to now? He's actually released TWO albums in the last three years: Thin Line in 2016 and Set The Record Straight in 2017. He like.. tours and stuff. Moms everywhere go INSANE, I'm sure.
Other than that, it looks like he just loves his family and his very, very hot wife. I suddenly understand where Miley gets it from.
Good on Billy Ray!
Mitchel Musso, AKA Oliver Oken
You had a crush on Michel Musso's character, Oliver. Like, between the layered t-shirts and the long hair, this dude was a 2008 heartthrob. And when him and Lilly kissed? I felt things. He has really only become more cute with time. Plus, he loves his mom. Lit.
Mitchel hit a MAJOR roadblock when he got a DUI and was kicked off the Disney Channel, but he's gotten back into acting. Most of the Hannah Montana cast came out to support his latest movie, an independent film called Bachelor Lions.
But before you ask me… yes, he has a girlfriend. And she is BEYOND beautiful.
Mitchel's come a long way since he posed with a mouthful of cigarettes, and I'm proud of him.
