'Welcome Back, Kotter': Where are the Sweathogs now?

  • Pop2it
While the TV community mourns the passing of Robert Hegyes, who played Juan Epstein on the 1970s sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter," we thought it might be interesting to see what all the other Sweathogs as well as Mr. Kotter are up to these days. Here's an update:

Subsequent films included "Face/Off," "Get Shorty" and "Wild Hogs." He's very much an A-lister.

Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs (Freddie "Boom Boom" Washington) - Known for his over enunciation "Hey, Mister Kot-taire," Hilton-Jacobs' character was the star on Buchanan High's basketball team. Since the series left the air in 1979, he's had a slew of guest starring roles in TV series from "Hill Street Blues" to "Roseanne" to "Chuck." His longest stint was on the show "Alien Nation.
