The first Crocodile Dundee film was released in 1986. An instant classic, no one was surprised when they decided to make two more movies. It has now been three decades since the first installment came out. We bet you want to know how the stars are doing! Read on to see what they’re doing these days.
Alec Wilson appeared twice in the trilogy, though he played two different characters. In Crocodile Dundee II, he was cast as a bad guy. In Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, he played Jacko, a close friend of Mick’s. He remained active in the industry, though he was last seen in a project back in 2013.
John Meillon played Walter “Wally” Reilly in the films. Everyone was glad to find the character in Crocodile Dundee II, though he did not come back for the third installment. The actor began to focus more on theater and even earned all sorts of awards later on. He died in 1989 of cirrhosis.

David Franklin played a rather small part in the series. The acting credits only list him as an unnamed ‘Assistant Director’. We bet more people recognize him for his portrayal of Meeklo Braca in Farscape and Brutus in Xena: Warrior Princess!
While Aida Turturro did appear in the last Dundee film, you probably don’t remember her appearance. Luckily, she got her big break later on. She was cast as Tony Soprano’s sister in the critically-acclaimed HBO television show, The Sopranos.
Ernie Dingo played Charlie in Crocodile Dundee II. After the movie, he experienced success as a character actor. Over the years, he has appeared in a total of 34 big screen projects.

She and Paul Hogan later tied the knot and they welcomed a kid into the world together! She has retired from the industry earlier on and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles was actually her last film project.
The trilogy would not have been the same without Paul Hogan! He played the main character and he later brought home the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his performance.

David Gulpilil played Neville Bell in Crocodile Dundee. He was a talented actor and he was shot into stardom after his performance in the film. However, charges of domestic violence shut his career down just as quickly.
Richard, the character Mark Blum played, is in the running for the worst character in the whole trilogy. He was cast in many projects after the movie and his resume includes the popular show, The Blacklist.

For some time, Luis Guzmán was typecast as a policeman, thug, or sidekick. It is a good thing that he has diversified his resume ever since! He had a minor role in Crocodile Dundee II, though he later landed bigger parts. For example, he played “Mama” in Code Black!
Nancy Mette was the actress who portrayed the prostitute called Karla in Crocodile Dundee. She got married to Barnet Kellman, actor and director, in 1982.
