On July 23, 2018, the comedy series "Reno 911!" turns 15 years old. Although the show about a department of hilariously incompetent Nevada sheriff deputies ended in 2009, we still remember how they made us laugh till it hurt. In honor of the anniversary of the show's debut, Wonderwall.com is taking a look at what the cast is up to these days. Keep reading for more…
Thomas Lennon starred as flamboyant Lieutenant Jim Dangle on "Reno 911!" from 2003 to 2009. Lt. Dangle, the highest ranking sheriff in the department, was known for wearing uncomfortably short shorts to show off his assets, especially to his crush, Deputy Sergeant S. Jones.

Longtime Thomas Lennon fans will remember him from the early '90s when he co-starred on the MTV sketch comedy series "The State" alongside actors like Michael Ian Black and "Reno 911!" co-star Kerri Kenney-Silver. After "Reno 911!" came to an end in 2009, Thomas continued acting, starring on the big screen in films like "Hancock," "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" and "We're the Millers" while also appearing in numerous TV series like "Comedy Bang! Bang!" and "Sean Saves the World." As if he wasn't busy enough, Thomas also has a long history of producing, writing, directing and even voice acting. 2018 is a busy year, with Thomas starring in five films including "A Futile and Stupid Gesture," "The 15:17 to Paris" and the upcoming comedy "Dog Days." He's also on the small screen with TV shows like "Santa Clarita Diet" and appeared as a voice actor on "American Dad!" In 2019, Thomas is set to star in the comedy "Eden Court" and produce two upcoming films: "Action #1" and "The Machine." He's been married to actress Jenny Robertson, with whom he has a son, since 2002.

Kerri Kenney-Silver starred as eccentric Deputy Trudy Wiegel on "Reno 911!" from 2003 to 2009. Deputy Wiegel suffered brain damage in the '80s, which might explain why she was such a hypochondriac obsessed with cats and Lt. Dangle.
Actress, writer and producer Kerri Kenney-Silver didn't miss a beat after "Reno 911!" came to an end in 2009. Appearing on the big screen in films like "All About Steve," "Wanderlust," "Other People" and "Downsizing," Kerri proved she could make us laugh in films as easily as she did on TV. Throughout the years, she's remained a constant presence on television, appearing on series like "Us & Them," "Things You Shouldn't Say Past Midnight" and "Harvey Beaks" (among many others). In 2018, Kerri appeared in the movie "A Futile and Stupid Gesture" alongside her former "Reno" co-star Thomas Lennon and continued her run as a regular on the TV series "Love." She also made a guest appearance on the Netflix original series "A Series of Unfortunate Events" and on the primetime comedy "Superstore." Kerri has been married to cinematographer Steven V. Silver, with whom she has a son, since 2004.
Cedric Yarbrough starred as smooth-talking Deputy Sergeant S. Jones on "Reno 911!" from 2003 to 2009. Also known as "Jonesy," the deputy wasn't shy about using his sexy voice to make people swoon.
Shortly after joining the cast of "Reno 911!," Cedric Yarbrough began his big-screen career with roles in films like "Meet the Fockers," "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Get Smart." After "Reno" ended in 2009, Cedric appeared on numerous TV shows including "Key and Peele," "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and "The Goldbergs." He also lent his voice to many animated TV series such as "The Penguins of Madagascar," "The Boondocks" and "Black Dynamite." Cedric enjoyed recurring roles on shows like "Comedy Bang! Bang!" and "The Soul Man" and was on two episodes of the dynamic HBO series "Ballers." Cedric also had a part in the 2017 big-screen comedy "The House" alongside Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, and later spoke out about Mariah Carey's unprofessional behavior on set (which got her scenes cut from the film). In 2018, Cedric continues his run as Kenneth on the family comedy "Speechless" co-starring Minnie Driver.
Niecy Nash starred as power-hungry Deputy Raineesha Williams on "Reno 911!" from 2003 to 2009. Deputy Williams was known for being a vocal and at times overbearing member of the sheriff's department who wasn't afraid to put a man in his place.
Although "Reno 911!" came to an end in 2009, Niecy Nash wasn't out of work. The longtime actress and TV personality continued with her other regular gig as host of the home makeover series "Clean House," which earned her a Daytime Emmy in 2010. Along with appearing on shows like "The Mindy Project," "Getting On" and "The Soul Man," Niecy's also worked behind the camera as a voice artist on shows like "American Dad!" and the big-screen comedy "G-Force." After a successful 2017 that included appearances in the film "Downsizing" and TV shows like "Angie Tribeca" and "Modern Family," Niecy is gearing up for an equally busy 2018. In June, she returned to the small screen for Season 2 of her hit crime-comedy "Claws" and had guest roles on "A.P. Bio" and "Fresh Off the Boat." Niecy's been married since 2011 to electrical engineer Jay Tucker. She has three children from a previous marriage.
Robert Ben Garant starred as proud redneck Deputy Travis Junior on "Reno 911!" from 2003 to 2009. Although Junior wasn't the smartest deputy in the sheriff's department, his frequent mishaps (and cringe-worthy accidents) never failed to make us laugh.
While we were busy laughing along with "Reno 911!," few of us knew that the series wasn't just a place for Robert Ben Garant to flex his comedic prowess — he also made his directorial debut with the show. In fact, Robert is also the series' co-creator, writer and executive producer. After "Reno" ended in 2009, the Emmy-nominated star continued working on and offscreen in Hollywood on numerous projects. From appearing on shows like "Archer" and "Key and Peele" to writing for films like "The Veil" and "Baywatch" and producing series like "@midnight," Robert's proven himself to be a man of many talents. In 2018, Robert's set to co-star in the big-screen comedy "Raising Buchanan" and the TV movie "The Vent." He's also a writer and producer on several upcoming films including "Action #1" and "The Machine." Robert's been married since 2011 to Korean-American actress Cathy Shim. They share two children.
Wendi McLendon-Covey starred as promiscuous Deputy Clementine Johnson on "Reno 911!" from 2003 to 2008.
Following her character's death in 2008, Wendi McLendon-Covey departed "Reno 911!" but wasn't offscreen for long. The SAG Award-nominated actress appeared on TV shows like "The Office" and "10 Things I Hate About You" and in movies like "Bridesmaids" and "What to Expect When You're Expecting." Her next regular TV role came in 2010 on the comedy series "Rules of Engagement" and just three years later, Wendi landed a starring role as matriarch Beverly Goldberg on the hilariously awkward ABC '80s-set comedy series "The Goldbergs," which is still going strong. Up next for Wendi are the films "Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween" and "Papi Chulo." In 2019, she'll star in the reimagined comedy "What Men Want," which is based on the 2000 film "What Women Want." Wendi's been married to producer Greg Covey since 1996.
Carlos Alazraqui starred as Deputy James Garcia, a former Marine Corps pilot, on "Reno 911!" from 2003 to 2008.

After exiting "Reno" in 2008, Carlos continued his work as a voice actor on the long-running animated series "SpongeBob SquarePants" and "The Fairly Odd Parents" as well as many other animated TV shows and films. Some of Carlos' most recent (and famous) voice roles were in films like "Despicable Me 3" and "The Emoji Movie" as well as on TV shows like "The Adventures of Puss in Boots" and "Elena of Avalor." You might be surprised to learn that Carlos had another very famous voice role from 1993 to 2004 — as Gidget, the hilarious Taco Bell chihuahua. In 2018, Carlos will continue his work on various animated series while also appearing on the big screen in the comedy "Taco Shop" and the thriller "Strange Nature." Carlos has been married to Laura Mala since 2010. They have two children.
