  • TooFab
Show me that smile again! It's been 30 years since we met the Seavers on "Growing Pains" in 1985 -- don't worry, we feel old too -- and we're celebrating the milestone by taking a look back at the show's cast to see what they've been up to for the last three decades. The series, which ran for seven seasons, followed the lives of psychiatrist Dr. Jason Seaver (Alan Thicke), his wife, Maggie (Joanna Kerns) and their family. Jason took care of the kids: ladies man Mike (Kirk Cameron), book worm Carol (Tracey Gold), wild child Ben (Jeremy Miller), youngest daughter Chrissy and, for a little while, a homeless boy played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Since starring in the beloved '80s series, Thicke went on to appear on "Hope & Gloria," "jPod," "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "How I Met Your Mother." The 68-year-old actor is currently starring in his own reality show,

Alan Thicke: 'Blurred Lines' Lawsuit Not 'Healthy Precedent'
Alan Thicke says the "Blurred Lines" copyright case, in which his son Robin's 2013 hit was ruled to have ripped off Marvin Gaye's 1977 classic "Got to Give It Up," is "kind of a milestone litigation – and dangerous to the musical community."

The actor shared his thoughts Wednesday in an interview with Today, adding that he didn't have much advice for his son. "I just said, 'Yes, you're giving back $3 million, but you're $3 million ahead of where you were before,'" he says in the clip. "From a purely accountant's standpoint,
