John Meillon NowHis last movie was ‘Crocodile Dundee II’ in 1988 – the following year, Meillon died at his home in New South Wales. Sadly, he wasn’t around to take part in the franchise’s third and final film. Luckily for Meillon, this was the worst of the three movies.
Mark Blum – Richard Mason Then
Reginald VelJohnson – Gus Then
If you had forgotten about Gus the limo driver then shame on you. However, after his most recent blockbuster hits there is no way he will be forgotten again. ‘Die Hard 2’ was next on his agenda as was ‘Turner & Hooch’, in which he was promoted to Captain.
Reginald VelJohnson Now
Movie obscurity turned into TV opportunity, and Reginald VelJohnson appeared in a variety of US TV shows over the following decades, usually playing cops and/or authority figures – his last credited role was as ‘Officer James’ on Disney Channel TV spinoff ‘Girl Meets World’.

Steve Rackman – Donk Then
Rackman aka Donk was the lucky man who got to kiss Paul Hogan. He was also a professional wrestler at the time who went by the name “Crusher” ,so it was a brave move by Hogan puckering up to such a fierce figure.
Steve Rackman Now
Donk reprised his role in both sequels and felt like completing the Crocodile Dundee trilogy was a fitting way to retire from Hollywood. After the third movie was released he took a back seat and now runs a gym back home in Australia.
