Rider Strong (1979): Actor who is best known for playing the rebellious Shawn Hunter on the long-running series “Boy Meets World.” Strong began performing professionally at age nine when he was cast as Gavroche in the San Francisco production of “Les Miserables.” After landing guest spots on series including “Nurses,” “Empty Nest,” “Going Places” and “Evening Shade,” Rider debuted on the silver screen in Benefit of the Doubt. On his downtime from “Boy Meets World,” Strong starred in sporadic episodes of the acclaimed drama, “Party of Five.” In 2001, he produced and appeared in Buck Naked Arson and starred in 2002's Cabin Fever.

Teri Garr (1949): Actress who made a name for herself in show business for her impeccable comedic delivery and ditzy persona. Garr began her career as a background dancer, and she performed in nine Elvis Presley features before deciding to focus on an acting career. Garr made her big screen debut in “The Monkees” flick Head, which was written by Jack Nicholson. After garnering critical acclaim for her work in The Conversation (1974) and Young Frankenstein (1974), Garr became one of the most sought after leading ladies of the silver screen. Some of her credits include Oh, God! (1977), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Tootsie (1982), Mr. Mom (1983) and After Hours (1985). In addition to her wacky appearances as Phoebe’s mom on “Friends,” Garr has since appeared in Double Jeopardy (1996), A Simple Wish (1997), Life without Dick (2001) and Searching for Debra Winger (as herself) in 2002.

Donna Mills (1942): Actress who became one of the vixens of primetime when she played Abby Cunningham Ewing on the long-running soap “Knots Landing.” Mills began her career with a touring theatre company, and she starred in such popular productions as “Chicago” and “My Fair Lady.” Basking in the bright lights of New York City in the late ‘60s, Mills became part of the original cast of Woody Allen’s “Don’t Drink the Water.” After her Broadway success, Mills tackled primetime with starring roles on the sitcom “The Good Life” and in the television movies “The Bait” and “Woman on the Run.” After nine seasons on “Knots Landing,” Mills did not return to evening soaps until she landed a recurring role in 1992, as Jane Mancini’s mother, on the seductive drama, “Melrose Place.” She has since appeared on a number of TV movies and specials.

Rita Moreno (1931): Star of stage and screen who has won the four highest awards any entertainer could ever hope for: the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. Moreno appeared in a multitude on B-pictures before giving a breakthrough performance in The King and I (1956).

Moreno segued to the small screen in the ‘70s and she launched her self-titled variety show in 1978. After appearing on “The Electric Company” and “9 to 5,” Moreno won two Emmy Awards for her guest spots on “The Muppet Show” and “The Rockford Files.” Moreno was seen in the film Pinero (2001), PBS's “American Family” (2002), and Casa de los babys (2003).
