PICTURE: Remember Bruce Bogtrotter? Here’s What He Looks Like Now

A childhood classic.

Cathy Donohue

We have a lot of love for Matilda and could watch it over and over without ever getting sick of it.

The scene where Bruce Bogtrotter is practically force fed cake is very uncomfortable to watch and even managed to put us off the sugary goodness (for all of ten minutes anyway).

Bruce, whose real name is Jimmy Karz, went to college to study osteopathic medicine and he looks VERY different now.

Before medical school, he graduated from St.John’s and worked as a research assistant and tutor.

His last acting role was a minor role in ER back in 1996 and he also had a small part in The Wedding Singer.

Now, there’s a throwback!
