Where You've Seen The Cast Of Gone In 60 Seconds Before

It's the year 2000. Nicolas Cage is at the height of his commercial powers, coming off films like "Face Off," "Con Air," and "The Rock." Dominic Sena is a music video director attempting a Michael Bay-esque transition into film. Angelina Jolie is an on-the-rise young actress coming off "Girl, Interrupted." It's a year before moviegoers will discover the "Fast and the Furious" franchise, and like those films, there's an old B-movie whose title inspiring a loose adaptation. All the elements have come together for "Gone in 60 Seconds."

Ultimately, the film was a solid summer blockbuster, grossing more than double its budget in telling the tale of Memphis Raines (Cage), a former car thief back in town to keep his baby brother (Giovanni Ribisi) from following in his footsteps. This brings together a cast of older professionals with new thieves, as the gang fight to make it out alive and outsmart the cops hellbent on catching them. 

Co-starring such screen luminaries as Robert Duvall, Delroy Lindo, Will Patton, Christopher Eccleston, Vinnie Jones, Scott Caan and Chi McBride, "Gone in 60 Seconds" may be resting on a 25% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but its audience score sits at 77%. Those who enjoyed it really enjoyed it, thanks in large part to amazing cars (such as the Shelby Mustang GT500) and a stellar cast. Below, a breakdown of their significant careers, and the projects you might remember them from.

Nicolas Cage

In "60 Seconds," it's explained that Cage's Raines and his crew were once the best of the best; after being sentenced to prison, however, he left the "life" behind. Now, with younger brother Kip turning into a car thief, Memphis must help him out of a deal that's gone south. The two brothers combine their crews to save the day and drive off into the sunset. Plus, they rekindle their brotherly affection.

As the face and main character of the film, Nicolas Cage almost needs no introduction. But that doesn't mean he won't get one. 

In the '80s, '90s and early 2000s, audiences couldn't go anywhere without seeing or hearing his name. Cage was seemingly in everything, from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" to "Moonstruck" to "Honeymoon in Vegas." Post "60 Seconds," Cage continued an impressive, post "Leaving Las Vegas" Oscar-fueled hot streak with the "National Treasure" and "Ghost Rider" films. Sure, every now and then there'd be a "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" or "Trapped in Paradise," but for the most part, there weren't many A-listers as bankable.

Sometime around the mid-2000s, Cage's luck began running out via box office duds like "Next," "Knowing," "Drive Angry" and his "Wicker Man" remake. But the legendary star of such classics as "Adaptation," "Raising Arizona" and "Wild at Heart" reinvented himself, this time as the king of video on demand quirkiness ("Color Out of Space," "Mandy," "Willy's Wonderland") and animated films ("Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," the "Croods" films, Superman in "Teen Titans GO! To the Movies"). 

Cage recently played an off-the-wall version of himself in "The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent," and will soon be seen in the eagerly-anticipated "Renfield," playing Dracula and perhaps getting back to his "Vampire's Kiss" roots.

Angelina Jolie

Another big name that stars in "Gone in 60 Seconds" is Angelina Jolie. At the time of its release, Jolie had just released "Girl, Interrupted," which won her an Oscar for best supporting actress and seemed to indicate that the daughter of Jon Voight had a future as Hollywood royalty. She was soon cast as Sara "Sway" Wayland, an

In the film, we learn that Sway never quite forgave Cage's character for leaving her and the crew — so when he returns to make things right, she gives him a less than warm welcome. However, Sara and Memphis eventually rekindle their romance and end up back together by the end of the movie.

Once the film wrapped, Jolie starred as Lara Croft in two "Tomb Raider" films, which led to hits ("Mr. And Mrs. Smith," the "Maleficent" films), misses ("The Tourist," "Alexander," "By the Sea") and a lot in-between ("Wanted," "Salt," "Eternals"). Jolie has also done voice working in the "King-Fu Panda" films, and is set to reprise her role as the Disney villain (or hero, depending on who you ask) Maleficent for a third time.

Giovanni Ribisi

Ribisi portrays Kip Raines, younger brother to Memphis and a troubled kid who has bitten off more than he can chew by taking a job for a British gangster (Christopher Eccleston). 

One of the more interesting actors of his generation, some love him and some hate him but everyone can agree: Giovanni Ribisi never plays the same character twice. A former child actor, Ribisi had bit parts on well-remembered television series like "Married... With Children," "My Two Dads," "The Wonder Years" and "NYPD Blue" before beginning to distinguish himself as a young man in films like the Richard Linklater/Eric Bogosian collaboration "SubUrbia" and Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan."

Despite some setbacks ("The Mod Squad," "Basic," "The Other Sister" and "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" were all box-office busts), Ribisi's intense stare and constantly-shifting appearance and accent made him an in-demand actor. From "Boiler Room" to "The Gift" to Tom Tykwer's "Heaven" and the Dennis Quaid-fueled remake of "Flight of the Phoenix," Ribisi frequently stole scenes from the more high-profile actors around him. Ribisi also found success on the small screen, appearing memorably on "Friends" and "My Name is Earl," and eventually starring in his own 2015 – 2019 series "Sneaky Pete."

Perhaps mot famously, in 2009 Ribisi portrayed the conflicted, greedy businessman Parker Selfridge in "Avatar," the top grossing movie of all time. It's a role he is set to reprise for the upcoming sequels.

Scott Caan

Scott Caan portrays the character "Tumbler" in "Gone in 60 Seconds." He is a close friend of Kip's and matches his excitable characteristics as his youth and energy sometimes overlook caution. He's a head-first kind of guy, but throughout the film learns a thing or two from some of the older car thieves that have been in the game longer. He becomes a valuable member of the team. 

Caan's character here seems to have possibly been a blueprint for another popular heist film Caan appeared in, "Ocean's Eleven." Released in 2001, Caan's character was a similarly young, abrasive character who goes head first into action on a team of criminals looking to steal from a big baddie.

Caan is the son of the late James Caan. The father and son duo had a close relationship, with the younger Caan telling People after his father's death that he had seen him through some tough times in his life, and that he considered him a close friend. He followed his father's footsteps into Hollywood, landing roles in "Varsity Blues," "Entourage," "Into the Blue," and "Enemy of the State." 

Caan portrayed Danny Williams for 10 years in the "Hawaii Five-O" reboot series, until the show's conclusion in 2020. Among his upcoming projects is "One Day as a Lion," a crime drama Caan wrote and will star in alongside J.K Simmons, Michael Carmen Pitt, and Virginia Madsen.

Timothy Olyphant

After more than a decade of recognizable work in largely underperforming films ("Auggie Rose," "Dreamcatcher," "A Man Apart," "Catch and Release," "Hitman"), Timothy Olyphant broke through on the small screen in 2010 with "Justified," the show that would finally make him a household name. In the middle of all that was "60 Seconds," where he played overzealous Detective Drycoff.

Since his five seasons as Raylan Givens, Olyphant has maintained a hot hand with series like "Santa Clarita Diet" and "Fargo." Most recently, he joined the "Star Wars" universe as Cobb Vanth, a lawman who helps Boba Fett and Mando from time to time on "The Mandalorian" and "The Book of Boba Fett." Initially, he worked with Mando to help his small town from being ransacked in exchange for providing him with the Boba Fett armor he had claimed as his own. Later, Olyphant's character returned for "Boba Fett," where he was shot down by notorious bounty hunter Cad Bane but is largely believed to have survived.

Olyphant has also had smaller roles in such recent classics as "Damages," "The Office," "Archer" and "Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood." Not content with just movies and TV, he also voiced the character Grinch in "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3."

Delroy Lindo

Delroy Lindo portrays Detective Roland Castlebeck, the senior partner to Timothy Olyphant's Detective Drycoff in "Gone in 60 Seconds." Castlebeck has a history with the Raines boys. He used to chase after Memphis back when he was in town stealing cars with his crew. Once Memphis comes back to help his brother finish a job, Castlebeck is immediately suspicious. He spends the majority of the film trying to put a stop to whatever illegal activity the brothers are up to. Eventually, he sees that there's a bigger fish out there with Calitri (Eccleston), and he works with the boys to arrest him. Providing they stop their car thieving ways, of course.

The same year that "Gone in 60 Seconds" was released, Lindo also starred in 2000's "Romeo Must Die," alongside Jet Li, Aaliyah, Anthony Anderson, and Isaiah Washington. One of the most dependable character actors over the past several decades, Lindo has crafted memorable work in "The Cider House Rules," "Clockers," "The Last Castle," "Malcolm X" and more recently, Spike Lee's "Da 5 Bloods," for which some believe he should have won an Oscar (or at least been nominated).

On the small screen, Lindo starred in "The Good Fight" from 2017 – 2021. How good of an actor is he? In early 2022, an old, tense clip of his "Good Fight" character went viral on social media, causing some to believe it was an authentic confrontation between Lindo and a talk show host.

Will Patton

Will Patton portrays Atley Jackson, an associate of the nefarious gangster Raymond Calitri. Back in the day, however, he was friends with and worked for Memphis and his crew. Because of his connection, Calitri assigns him to work with the brothers to ensure that they deliver the stolen cars. Unfortunately for him, this plan backfires as Atley intends to ensure the safety of the brothers and their team above all else. By the end of the film, audiences see that Atley is working with the crew and betrays Calitri, allowing detectives to arrest him.

Patton looks familiar due to his role as Garrett Randle in "Yellowstone." Or perhaps it's his role as Wayne Tillerson in "Outerrange." Honestly, it could be a variety of things such as "Swamp Thing," The Good Wife," and "24." His film career is pretty stellar as well. Patton was cast in "Remember the Titans," The Punisher" (2004), "Armageddon," and "The November Man." A talented supporting actor over the past several decades, Patton also portrays Officer Hawkins in the new David Gordon Green "Halloween" films.

Robert Duvall

"Gone in 60 Seconds" goes out of its way to showcase that youth always has something to learn from the older generation. Just as Memphis and his crew pass on their knowledge to Kip and his, audiences also see where Memphis learned his skill from, Otto Halliwell. Otto is his mentor and works with both the brothers to accomplish their goals as safely as possible.

Otto is played by Robert Duvall, who began his career with arguably the most memorable debut performance in motion picture history, as Boo Radley in 1962's "To Kill a Mockingbird." A decade of theater and television would follow before he'd really start building the career of a legend, appearing alongside folks like Frank Sinatra ("The Detective"), Steve McQueen ("Bullitt"), John Wayne ("True Grit") and Charles Bronson ("Breakout") before becoming a bankable star himself. He then helped launch the careers of Robert Altman ("MASH") and George Lucas ("THX 1138") with roles in their early films before having a run of instant classics in the '70s: "The Godfather," "The Godfather Part II," "Network," "Apocalypse Now" and "The Great Santini" — three of those films earned him his seven overall Oscar nominations.

Believe it or not, the only Oscar Duvall has ever won was for 1983's "Tender Mercies," but after that he kept cranking out classics, from Barry Levinson's "The Natural" to Dennis Hopper's "Colors" to "Days of Thunder" and "Falling Down." In 1996, he helped another young talent with a key role in "Sling Blade," which would make a star out of Billy Bob Thornton. Ask Duvall what his most treasured role is, however, and he'll likely name 1997's "The Apostle," which he wrote, directed and starred in as a down-on-his-luck preacher.

Even in his post "60 Seconds" years, Duvall has done standout work in "Secondhand Lions," "Thank You for Smoking," "We Own the Night" and "Crazy Heart." He got memorably silly (and had an opportunity to spoof his intense, iconic "Santini" father) with Will Ferrell in 2005's "Kicking and Screaming."

Since he starred as Tom Hagen in "The Godfather" opposite James Caan's Sonny, Duvall has worked with both father and son, James and Scott Caan. In "Gone in 60 Seconds," his character Otto takes on somewhat of a fatherly role to Caan's Tumbler. Seeing as how the actor worked with his father, for viewers in the know it feels like a special element to their scenes.

Now north of 90 years old, Duvall is still working. He recently had a key role in the Adam Sandler film "Hustle," and is scheduled to appear in the upcoming films "The Pale Blue Eyes" and "The Ploughmen."

Chi McBride

Chi McBride portrays Donny Astricky, an old friend of Memphis. When the film begins, audiences see him working as a driving instructor and bored out of his mind. He is overjoyed when Memphis calls, saying he's getting the band back together for one last job. He acts as comic relief in the film, especially when he's paired with some of the younger members of the team like Tumbler (Scott Caan).

McBride had been in mostly serious films up until 2000 ("Hoodlum," "Mercury Rising"), and starred in one of the most infamous series of all time — the quickly-canceled Abraham Lincoln comedy and so-called "slavery sitcom" "The Secret Life of Desmond Pfeiffer." 

"60 Seconds" would launch McBride into a new chapter of his career as a successful funnyman, dependably stealing scenes even when the comedies weren't that terrific. Whether you found films like "Waiting...," "The Brothers Solomon," "Let's Go to Prison" and "Undercover Brother" is subjective, but it's hard to deny that McBride's work stood out.

Chi McBride would eventually join Caan in "Hawaii Five-O" as Lou Grover, the Captain of the Honolulu Police Department's SWAT team. he has also been seen in shows like "House," "Killer Instinct," "Boston Public," "Golden Boy," and "Pushing Daisies." 

McBride also has a wide range of voice acting experience, specifically with Marvel properties. He's voiced the character of Nick Fury in "Ultimate Spider-Man," "Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.," "Avengers Assemble," and "Fury Files." Watch out, Samuel L. Jackson. You've got competition.

Vinnie Jones

Vinnie Jones is quite the presence in "Gone in 60 Seconds," as he has been in most films. And he manages to do so in this instance without ever uttering a word. 

The former soccer athlete's character Sphinx is a mute that works as a mortician and has an affliction for causing people pain. The moment he is introduced to audiences, he saves Memphis from being beaten up by a group of men. He chooses to stand menacingly and set their car on fire, causing the men to flee. 

"60 Seconds," paired with the two films that surrounded it — 1998's "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and 2000's "Snatch" — resulted in a breakout for Jones, who had only recently made the difficult transition from defensive midfielder (he played soccer for such teams as Chelsea and Sheffield United from 1984 to 1999) to aspiring thespian. Due to his size and demeanor, a succession of tough guy roles soon followed. 

From the good ("She's the Man") to the bad ("The Big Bounce") to the mediocre ("Swordfish"), Jones has worked solidly ever since, with his career peaks perhaps coming when he was chosen to be Juggernaut in "X-Men: The Last Stand" (famously delivering a line from an internet meme) and when he starred in the 2008 Clive Barker film "Midnight Meat Train." In more recent years, Jones has been seen in television shows like "Arrow," "Galavant" and "Law & Order: Organized Crime." 

In 2019, Jones lost his wife Tanya to cancer, and has been public about his struggles without her and his battles with sobriety.

Christopher Eccleston

Raymond Calitri is the gangster boss who forces Kip and Memphis back together once more. After Kip foils a job for Calitri, Memphis comes home to set things right. Eventually, he makes a deal with Detective Roland Castlebeck to have Calitri arrested because someone's got to go to jail. And why not make it a boss rather than some small-time car thieves?

Christopher Eccleston brings this character to life, with his cold yet aggressive attitude. The British actor is no stranger to the screen, as he portrayed the ninth incarnation of the Doctor in 2005 when "Doctor Who" was brought back to the BBC after being off the air for years. Unfortunately, Eccleston left the show after only one season.

After a decade of films like "GI. Joe: Rise of Cobra" (he was Destro) and shows like "Heroes," Eccleston truly dazzled on the heavier-than-heavy HBO drama "The Leftovers." From 2014 – 2017, Eccleston was Matt Jamison, a man of god grappling with the aftermath of a mysterious world event that made two percent of the global human population simply vanish. 

True, he is generally considered to be one of the worst MCU villains of all time thanks to starring as Malekith in "Thor: The Dark World," but Eccleston has nonetheless showcased impressive talent when given the right role.
