Do you remember the fun 2000s film about a girl leaving her home and going to New York to pursue her dream of becoming a musician? She then ends up working at this bar called Coyote Ugly, full of actual drink slinging supermodels like Tyra Banks who all work there as bartenders. Yeah, that one. Can you believe it’s been full 20 years since that movie came out? Neither can we, but it seems like a good time to revisit the movie and also look at what the actresses who starred in it are doing now.
1. Piper Perabo – Violet Sanford
Piper played the leading lady in this movie, she was the one who was leaving her home in New Jersey to pursue her dreams in New York City. Since then Piper has been in quite a few movies including masterpieces like The Prestige and Looper and most recently she’s been in the TV show Penny Dreadful: City of Angels where she played Linda Craft.
2. John Goodman – Bill Sanford
John Goodman needs no introduction. In Coyote Ugly he played Piper’s father who was very protective of his daughter and didn’t really want her to leave but in the end if that’s what made her happy and as a father, he couldn’t stay in the way of that. We already knew John from Roseanne and The Big Lebowski, but since then he’s also lent his voice to Monsters Inc and has been averaging 5 projects or more every year, and he shows no signs of slowing down.
3. Tyra Banks – Zoe
Tyra was already a big deal back in the day, but as we all know she’s an even bigger deal now. This lady is relentless in her wit, her goals and her ability to succeed in everything she tires. We all loved her on America’s Next Top Model, her own show The Tyra Banks Show was incredible, she won two daytime Emmys for it. And now she’s going to co-produce Dancing With The Stars, which can only mean that it’s going to be even better than before. Tyra has also mentioned in interviews that she’d love to do a sequel to Coyote Ugly but she’d have to get the rights to do that or get the people who have the rights to do it with her. But she’s clearly into the idea of a reunion.
