Then + Now: Joey Lawrence from ‘Blossom’
Whatever happened to ’90s teen heartthrob Joey Lawrence, the big bro from ‘Blossom’?
Joey Lawrence delighted us with his bad boy appeal in his leather jacket and flannel on the hit TV series ‘Blossom,’ where you probably remember his cerebral signature catchphrase, “Whoa!” He also starred on the Disney channel show ‘Brotherly Love’ along with his real-life brothers, Matthew and Andrew Lawrence.
Lawrence continued to act, making guest appearances on shows like ‘CSI: NY’ and ‘American Dreams,’ and he had a small part in ‘Urban Legends: Final Cut.’ In 2006, Lawrence was a contestant on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and came in third place, and he went on to star as Billy Flynn in the Broadway play ‘Chicago.’
Then in 2009, Lawrence co-starred with fellow ’90s icon Melissa Joan Hart on the ABC Family movie ‘My Fake Fiancee,’ which led to the pair starring in the sitcom ‘Melissa and Joey,’ whose third season premieres later this month.
Last year, Lawrence had a brief contract as a Chippendales dancer in Las Vegas, and more recently he’s been seen on the reality competition show ‘Splash.’
