Can you believe that June 2, 2018, marks 15 years since the Disney family comedy "Even Stevens" aired its finale? The hilarious show about the quirky Stevens family from Sacramento, California, ran for three years before officially ending in 2003 (the same year Disney premiered a TV movie of the same name). In honor of the anniversary of the series finale, Wonderwall.com is checking in on the sitcom's stars to see what's going on with them today. Keep reading for more…
Shia LaBeouf starred as Louis Stevens on "Even Stevens" from 2000 to 2003. Louis was a smart kid and class clown who often got himself in hot water with his parents and teachers.
It's been a long and sometimes painful road for Shia LaBeouf since he left the set of "Even Stevens." The same year he won a Daytime Emmy for his performance in "Even Stevens," Shia appeared in his first major movie, 2003's "Holes." He followed the part with supporting roles in films like "I, Robot" before headlining the thriller "Disturbia" in 2007. That same year, Shia experienced the first of many run-ins with the law when he was arrested for public intoxication. Still, the young actor managed to snag major roles in movies like the "Transformers" franchise, taking his career to new heights. More films and, sadly, more arrests followed. By 2017, Shia had made more than a dozen new movies (including the sexually charged "Nymphomaniac" films) and had been arrested six more times, almost always for issues stemming from alcohol use. Today, Shia claims he's getting his life back on track, working with a therapist to help him deal with his mental health and trying to repair his off-screen image. In April 2018, his newest film, the biographical drama "Borg vs. McEnroe," debuted in theaters. Later in 2018, Shia will return to the big screen with the adventure "The Peanut Butter Falcon" alongside Dakota Johnson. In 2016, he reportedly married his "Nymphomaniac" co-star Mia Goth in a Las Vegas ceremony, although court records show no official marriage license was filed, leading many to call it a commitment ceremony.

Christy Carlson Romano starred as Louis's older sister, Renee "Ren" Stevens, on "Even Stevens from 2000 to 2003.
Along with her time spent on "Even Stevens," TV, theater and film star Christy Carlson Romano was also the beloved voice of Kim on the "Kim Possible" animated series and films. Following that show's end in 2007, Christy took on roles in TV movies like "Wolvesbayne" and "Iris Expanding" as well as in indie films like "Infected" and "Prism" (the latter of which she also produced). In 2010, she returned to the stage in an Off-Broadway production of "White's Lies." In 2018, Christy will reprise her voice role in the animated short "Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable Revealed!" Since 2013, Christy's been married to screenwriter and film producer Brendan Rooney. The couple welcomed their first child, Isabella, in 2016.
Nick Spano (center) starred as Louis and Ren's older brother, Donnie Stevens, on "Even Stevens" from 2000 to 2003.
Although Nick Spano hung around Hollywood after "Even Stevens" came to an end in 2003, he mostly appeared in occasional guest-starring roles on TV series like "Alias," "Cold Case," "Beyond the Break," "NCIS" and "Without a Trace" throughout the mid-to-late aughts. Nick then all but stepped away from the limelight around 2008 and taught acting for a while, but it seems his true passion is as an entrepreneur. Along with starting a farmers market organization and yoga community, Nick set his sites on opening a unique restaurant-meets-artistic venue in central Los Angeles called Re/Creation. Since 2015, Nick's been a driving force for the eatery that will have spaces for performance art, creativity and even yoga. The location is set to open on Washington Boulevard, hopefully sometime in the summer 2018.

He even made an appearance as a doctor on the hit family drama "This Is Us" in 2017. Not only has he worked as an actor, but Tom's also tried his hand at editing TV documentaries like "Disney Cruise Line: Behind the Magic" and "My First Sale."

From there, his on-screen roles were fewer and farther between. In 2005, he had a part on the sports comedy "Rebound" as well as in the Will Ferrell comedy "Kicking and Screaming." The following year, he guest starred on two episodes of "Dance Revolution" as a judge and in 2007, he appeared in the musical comedy "Bratz." Eight years later, fans got a huge surprise when they spotted Steven working at a mall as a Santa's helper in 2015 (seen here with a fan). As of 2016, Steven had embarked on a new career path as a teacher, delivering seminars at USC, the University of California, Berkeley and even Pepperdine University where he's educated students about acting techniques and "the business of the business." After a four-year hiatus from the big screen, Steven has a small role in the 2018 fantasy-drama "I Wrote This For You."
