Before Nancy McKeon was playing softball on The Facts of Life, she was doing it for Best Foods Mayonaise. She looks the same now as she did when she was 12 in that 1979 commercial.

It looks like at least one of The Facts of Life OG is part of Live In Front of a Studio Audience

Tonight at 8p on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel and Norman Lear are doing another Live In Front of a Studio Audience. This time around, they are doing Diff’rent Strokes and The Facts of Life with actors in their 40s, 50s, and a 61-year old playing the lead roles that originally were played by minors.

That got a lot of people wondering why they didn’t just use the original actresses since Kim Fields and Jennifer Aniston are the same age. I mean, I would love to see Lisa Whelchel, Nancy McKeon, Fields, and Mindy Cohn reprise the roles that made them famous over Aniston, Kathryn Hahn, Gabrielle Union, and Allison Tolman.

While the OGs might not be playing their characters again, it looks at least Cohn, who played Natalie Green, will be part of it. That is because she shared a photo of herself with Kevin Hart, who is starring as Arnold Jackson in the Diff’rent Strokes recreation, from what looks like the set.

What part will Cohn and possibly her former co-stars play in the special? I think they will just make an appearance before a commercial break like Good Times’ BernNadette Stanis, Jimmie Walker, and the late Ja’net DuBois did when they recreated their sitcom.

A ’70s kid’s wet dream, it’s Mindy Cohn and Eve Plumb!
October 25th, 2021 under The Brady Bunch, The Facts of Life, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the early ’70s, kids loved Eve Plumb as Jan Brady on The Brady Bunch. Then at the end of it, we got to know Mindy Cohn on The Facts of Life. However, their two characters were never to meet.

But in real life, the two actresses met and are now friends who are “falling on the streets.” Who else besides me wants to fall on the streets with them?

Now, can we talk about how great Plumb, 63, and Cohn, 55, look for the ages? So much so, I am wondering what it would’ve been like if one of the Brady girls went to Eastland Academy? Jo would’ve given them a lesson that even Mike and Carol Brady would not be able to handle.

BTWF: Nancy McKeon, Dee Wallace, Linda Dano, and Meeno Peluce on Starsky and Hutch

Before we all knew Nancy McKeon, Dee Wallace, Linda Dano, and Meeno Peluce’s names, they were all guest stars on an episode of Starsky and Hutch together. How nice was it is to see the 11-year-old The Facts of Life star, the 28-year-old Scream Queen, the 34-year-old Soap actress, and the 7-year-old Voyagers actor in one of their first roles back in 1977.

McKeon shared this story about from the set, “…my first job in California 1977! ‘Starsky and Hutch’… I was 11😋! What I remember most was watching Paul Michael Glaser play his guitar outside his trailer… I believe it was an amazing Jim Croce tune💜😀#memories #thepowerofmusic 🎶#alifetimeago.”

BTWF: Dan Frischman on The Facts of Life

Before Dan Frischman friends defended him against bullies on Head of the Class, his so-called friends were the bullies on The Facts of Life. He looks the same now as he did when he was 22 in that 1982 episode.
