Whatever Happened to Julie Warner?

Julie Warner is a talented film and television actress. She’s most known for her roles in the movies Doc Hollywood and Tommy Boy, as well as the TV show Family Law. Even though she has more than 50 projects in her portfolio, her most groundbreaking work was in the 1990s.

Warner managed to snag iconic roles in a couple of very memorable movies, making her a prominent household name in America. But since she’s not that present in the media lately, fans are wondering where she is now. Here’s everything we know about Julie Warner.

Julie Warner’s Career

Her story reads as one might expect of a stereotypical actor, apart from graduating from college before she made her way to Los Angeles to get her career started. Some folks might have expected her to drop out or somehow find that school just wasn’t her thing since, let’s be honest, a lot of actors out there might have never finished high school, and some decided that after attending college that their needs weren’t being met.

But Julie did graduate, and she did make her way out west, where she started a job as a waitress while she began to attend auditions for the chance to be someone on the big screen. The good news is that she did get her wish since she did make it after a while and had her debut in 1990 as a part of the cast, briefly, of Flatliners with Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, and William Baldwin.

Julie Warner’s Breakout Role Was Doc Hollywood

Her role as Lou in Doc Hollywood would give her a lot more exposure alongside Michael J. Fox. Warner played a stern but enjoyable role that earned her a lot of positive attention. Lou was a very practical character with a four-year-old daughter and was the type of person that knew that great potential didn’t need to be wasted since she recognized that Ben, being a promising young doctor, needed to go where his skills were going to be appreciated, rather than become stuck as a small-town doctor as the rest of the town eventually warmed up to him and wanted to see him stay.

Toward the end of the movie, it was revealed that Ben actually wanted to remain in the small town since he’d been raised in a similar location and felt the need to return. Lou ended up welcoming him back, and of course, the happily ever after feeling was implied.

From there, she went on to star in Mr. Saturday Night, then Indian Summer, and even in The Puppet Masters, a sci-fi/horror that featured slug-like aliens that would attach themselves to a person’s back and take control of their nervous system and thereby sought to invade the earth. Even though the movie wasn’t such a big success, it did make an impression on Warner’s fans.

Tommy Boy Was Another Big Project for Warner

She did get to take part in the movie Tommy Boy, which a lot of people remember fondly thanks to the late, great Chris Farley, who, along with David Spade, created a memorable movie that is still quoted and enjoyed by quite a few people. Warner’s role as Michelle Brock was both the love interest of the titular character, Tommy, and the sales manager for Callahan Auto.

Her character kind of came and went during the movie but proved to be pivotal since when Tommy and Richard were essentially defeated and had no other option to save the company, Michelle came through after suspecting Tommy’s new stepmother and stepbrother of fraud. In a sense, she’s the hero of the story since her ability to think clearly and act in a rational manner reinvigorated Tommy and Richard and helped to save the company.
