Andrew McCarthy, Sagittarius
Then: When you think of Andrew McCarthy, you probably remember the dreamy hunk who caught Molly Ringwald's eye in Pretty in Pink. However, he also lent his talents to other cult classics, including Weekend at Bernie's and Mannequin.
Now: Like many Sagittarius natives, Andrew must have felt the tug of wanderlust. He became a travel writer, which perfectly satisfies his sign's appetite for far-flung adventures. In recent years McCarthy has penned articles for the likes of National Geographic and Travel & Leisure, and in 2012 published a travel-based memoir, The Longest Way Home: One Man's Quest for the Courage to Settle Down.

Anthony Michael Hall, Aries
Then: The baby-faced Anthony Michael Hall may have played geeks in The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles, but his characters always had poignant things to say about teenage life and romance.
Now: After starring in the TV series The Dead Zone (based on Stephen King's work), which ran for six seasons, Anthony recently made an appearance on Psych as an interim police chief. In addition, he played a nerd-turned-bully on Community and had a part in The Dark Knight. We imagine all of these jobs fulfilled his courageous, take-charge Aries nature—maybe more than playing a hapless dork ever did.
