This Is What The Cast Of 'Casper' Looks Like Now

Find out what Christina Ricci and teen heartthrob Devon Sawa are doing 20 years after the Halloween-favorite premiered.

Casper first hit theaters 20 years ago but the friendliest-ghost movie continues to live on in younger generations thanks to ABC Family's 13 Nights of Halloween. What the younger gen's cannot possibly understand is the status of Devon Sawa at the time as teeny-bopper heartthrob royalty and how Christina Ricci was the envy of every girl at the time - also starring as Sawa's love interest earlier that same year in Now & Then. "Can I keep you?" became the words every girl yearned to hear. Check out what the cast of Casper has been up to since the movie's premiere in 1995.
