The State alum Ken Marino has just been cast in David Caspe's new NBC pilot Marry Me. The project will follow Jake and Annie, a newly engaged couple coping with the challenges of commitment. Marino will star opposite Casey Wilson, who also appeared in Caspe's previous show, Happy Endings. Marino's casting had us wonding what happened to the rest of the funny people that made up The State. It turns out that they've all stayed relatively busy.
Even though The State only ran on MTV for two short years and 26 episodes, that was long enough for the series to create a splash big enough to soak every inch of modern sketch comedy with its influence, and the cast has since traveled to the far reaches of the comedy world. Even after the end of the MTV sketch show, much of the original cast have worked together quite frequently, including the 2001 film Wet Hot American Summer, Reno 911!, and Stella. So what is the cast of The State up to these days?
