Jim Carrey was just starting out in his acting career when he landed a role as a comedian on "In Living Color" in 1990.
In 1994, Jim Carrey's career blew up with three hit movies: "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "Dumb & Dumber" and "The Mask." In the late '90s, he won two Golden Globes for his work in "The Truman Show" and "Man on the Moon," solidifying his place on the acting A-list for decades. More recently, he's starred as Jeff Piccirillo on the Showtime series "Kidding" and as Dr. Robotnik in the 2020 live-action "Sonic the Hedgehog" movie. Jim has a daughter from his first marriage, which ended in 1995. He married actress Lauren Holly in 1996; they split less than a year later. Since then, he's been in high-profile relationships with the likes of Renee Zellweger and Jenny McCarthy. Jim, who in recent years has also made headlines for his politically charged artwork, dated "Kidding" co-star Ginger Gonzaga in 2019.
Jennifer Lopez (left) was far from the household name she is now when she joined "In Living Color" as a Fly Girl dancer during its third season.
Jennifer Lopez has literally turned into a triple-threat superstar since her days on "In Living Color." After her breakout film role in the 1997 biopic "Selena," she's blown up the box office with hit rom-coms like 2001's "The Wedding Planner." Plus she's been making No. 1 hits since her debut album, "On the 6," came out in 1999. More recently, she starred in the 2018 rom-com "Second Act," wrapped up a Las Vegas residency and finished a three-season run on NBC's "Shades of Blue." J.Lo toured in the summer of 2019 — in part to celebrate her 50th birthday — and appeared in the drama "Hustlers," for which she received a Golden Globe Award nomination for best supporting actress. Aside from the A-lister's high-profile relationships with Diddy and Ben Affleck, she's been married three times. She's a mom to twins Max and Emme with ex-husband No. 3, singer Marc Anthony. She and retired MLB star Alex Rodriguez got engaged in March 2019.
Jamie Foxx lent his acting chops to the last two seasons of "In Living Color." Who could forget his character Wanda?!
Jamie Foxx went on to make a name for himself as both an actor and a singer. He won an Oscar for his work in the 2004 Ray Charles biopic "Ray" and had parts in huge blockbusters like 2012's "Django Unchained." Plus he's won two Grammys — for "Gold Digger" with Kanye West in 2006 and "Blame It" in 2010. In more recent years, Jamie's hosted and executive produced the FOX game show "Beat Shazam" and will next voice the lead character in the 2020 Disney-Pixar film "Soul." The dad of two — he has daughters with two ex-girlfriends — went public with longtime love Katie Holmes at the 2019 Met Gala after more than five years of dating denials. However, the couple called it quits shortly after.
Keenen Ivory Wayans didn't just host and act on "In Living Color" — he was responsible for creating and writing the show with brother Marlon Wayans. Plus he won an Emmy for it in 1990.
Keenen Ivory Wayans has had a successful career in front of and behind the camera. He's written and acted in a ton of movies including 1994's "A Low Down Dirty Shame" — he also wrote the screenplay for 2004's "White Chicks" — and he directed "Scary Movie" in 2000. And let's not forget his short-lived eponymous 1997 talk show, which he also executive produced. He more recently served as a judge on the eighth season of "Last Comic Standing" in 2014. Though his marriage to Daphne Polk ended messily in 2005, the union gave them five beautiful children — four daughters and one son.
Chris Rock was a recurring guest on the final season of "In Living Color" after he left the cast of "Saturday Night Live."
Chris Rock continued to work as a successful stand-up comedian — he was featured in three acclaimed HBO comedy specials — before he landed high-profile movie roles in films like "Beverly Hills Ninja," the "Madagascar" film series and "Grown Ups." He also hosted the Oscars in 2005 and 2015. More recently, Chris starred in the 2018 Netflix stand-up special "Chris Rock: Tamborine." In 2020, he starred in the film "The Witches" and joined the cast of "Fargo." Next up, he'll appear in 2020's "Spiral: From The Book of Saw," the ninth installment of the "Saw" horror movie franchise. In 2014, Chris and wife Malaak Compton-Rock announced plans to divorce after nearly 20 years of marriage and two daughters together. After four years of dating actress Megalyn Echikunwoke, the couple called it quits in 2020.
Rosie Perez was the Emmy-nominated choreographer for the Fly Girls on "In Living Color" for the first four seasons.
Rosie Perez shifted to acting and nabbed big-screen supporting roles after "In Living Color," including one in "Fearless" that led to an Oscar nomination. In 2014, she released a tell-all book, "Handbook for an Unpredictable Life," in which she spoke candidly about her longtime feud with former "In Living Color" colleague Jennifer Lopez. She also served as a co-host on "The View" in 2014 and starred on NBC's "Rise" in 2018. In 2019, she starred in the horror flick "The Dead Don't Die" and appeared in Spike Lee's Netflix series "She's Gotta Have It." Then, in 2020 she appeared in two films — "The Last Thing He Wanted" and "Birds of Prey." After her 2001 divorce from Seth Zvi Rosenfeld, Rosie walked down the aisle again in 2013 with artist Eric Haze.

Bang!" In 2019 he appeared in the FOX series "The Cool Kids" and the film "Native Son." He landed a role in the 2020 flick "Coffee & Kareem" and voiced the titular character in "Clifford the Big Red Dog." After his divorce from Maritza Rivera in 1994, David married Christine Kim in 2007. The couple had a daughter but filed for divorce in 2009.
Carrie Ann Inaba knows a thing or two about dancing from her days busting a move as a Fly Girl on "In Living Color" during its first three seasons.
Since 2005, Carrie Ann Inaba has been a judge on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." In 2019, she was named an official co-host on "The Talk," replacing Julie Chen. Though she's found successful and long-lasting TV jobs, romance is another story. A year after boyfriend Jesse Sloan proposed to her on a 2011 episode of "Live! With Regis and Kelly," the couple called off their engagement. Five years later, Carrie called off another engagement, this time to actor Robb Derringer.
