It's been 30 years since the coming-of-age teen comedy "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" hit theaters, so what is the all-star cast up to three decades later?

Some of the movie's actors are even bigger names today than they were when the film was released in 1982, including Sean Penn and Forest Whitaker. Others, like Jennifer Jason Leigh and Phoebe Cates, aren't as revered in 2012. Moviefone recently took a look at what the cast has been up to since the blockbuster.

Penn's comedic turn as Jeff Spicoli in "Fast Times" gave him major star power, but he's since turned to darker, more dramatic material - and picked up a slew of awards in the process. He's won two Oscars for "Mystic River" and "Milk" and appeared in acclaimed films like "Into The Wild" and "The Tree of Life."

The Academy Awards were also a destination for Whitaker, who had a smaller role in "Fast Times" as Charles Jefferson. Whitaker took home the Best Actor prize for 2006's "The Last King of Scotland."

Popular senior Linda Barrett was played by Phoebe Cates, who spent much of the '80s as a bombshell sex symbol, but these days she's largely out of the limelight. She currently owns Blue Tree, a Manhattan boutique specializing in women's clothes, and her last film appearance came in 2001's "The Anniversary Party," written and directed by Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Speaking of Leigh, who played Stacy Hamilton in "Fast Times," she currently stars in the final season of Showtime's hit series, "Weeds," as the sister of pot-dealing soccer mom Nancy Botwin.

Check out the full list of what the "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" cast is up to here.
