Cast of ‘Scrooged’ Then and Now [Video]

Released in 1988, "Scrooged" was a darkly comedic take on Charles Dickens' classic 'A Christmas Carol,' starring Bill Murray in the Ebenezer Scrooge role as Frank Cross, a cynical TV executive alienated from his family and unable to find real happiness.

Struggling to put together a live production of "A Christmas Carol" on Christmas Eve, Frank finds that his real life begins to resemble the story he's producing as three ghosts visit him throughout the evening to try and get him to change his ways before it's too late.

The film took Murray from battling ghosts in 'Ghostbusters' to learning lessons from them, and over time it's become a holiday comedy classic.

Twenty five years later, take a look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
