The Timeless Reunion of the “Taxi” Cast: See Them Today!

“Taxi” was an immensely popular and critically acclaimed sitcom in the 1970s. Featuring an incredible ensemble cast including Danny DeVito, Tony Danza, Carol Kane, and Christopher Lloyd, it left a lasting impact on television. Now, 40 years after the show ended, we have been given the heartwarming opportunity to witness a reunion of some of the cast members! Let’s take a look at how they are doing today.


Running for five seasons from 1978 to 1982, “Taxi” garnered both critical acclaim and commercial success. The sitcom proved to be a trailblazer, winning a staggering 18 Emmy Awards, including three for Best Comedy Series.

Yesterday, four of the iconic show’s main cast members graced us with their presence at a long-awaited reunion. The delightful photos capture stars Tony Danza, Christopher Lloyd, Judd Hirsch, and Carol Kane enjoying each other’s company over drinks.

The joyous occasion was shared on social media by both Danza and Lloyd. Tony Danza took to Twitter to express his affection for his former co-stars, writing, “Love these people so much!” Meanwhile, Christopher Lloyd posted the photo on Instagram accompanied by the question, “What the hell is going on here? #taxi.” The reunion pic was also followed by another photograph from a more complete cast gathering. It was taken at the premiere of the Broadway show “Honeymoon in Vegas” in 2015, where Danza starred.

Seeing these old castmates back together is truly heartwarming, and it serves as a reminder of the countless legendary careers launched by “Taxi.”

Christopher Lloyd, now 84, is still revered for his iconic role as The Reverend Jim “Iggy” Ignatowski. While “Back to the Future” and the timeless character of Doc Brown solidified his fame, Lloyd’s impressive filmography also includes memorable performances in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” “Clue,” and “The Addams Family.”

Carol Kane, who portrayed Simka Gravas and won two Emmy Awards, continues to captivate audiences. Most recently, she was a main cast member on Netflix’s “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Kane’s impressive film resume includes appearances in classics like “Annie Hall,” “Scrooged,” “The Princess Bride,” and “Hester Street,” for which she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. At the age of 70, she remains a force to be reckoned with.

Tony Danza, now 72, has carried the warmth and charm from his role as the kind-hearted Tony Banta to other successful television projects, most notably the long-running series “Who’s the Boss?”

Judd Hirsch, who played Alex Rieger on “Taxi,” is still going strong at 88. Just last year, he received an Academy Award nomination for his exceptional performance in Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans.” Throughout his career, Hirsch has starred in films like “Ordinary People,” “Independence Day,” and “A Beautiful Mind.” His incredible talent earned him two Emmy Awards for his work on “Taxi.”

Though not present at the recent reunion, it is important to acknowledge Danny DeVito’s significant contribution to the show. DeVito played the unforgettable dispatcher Louie De Palma and has since become a major movie star, currently starring on the long-running series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” His former wife Rhea Perlman, who also had a recurring role on “Taxi,” is no longer with him.

Marilu Henner, who charmed audiences as Elaine on “Taxi,” was also unable to attend the reunion. Since then, she has continued to co-star in numerous films and TV shows.

Unfortunately, the cast of “Taxi” has lost two beloved members. The pioneering comedian Andy Kaufman, who played Latka Gravas, passed away in 1984. Additionally, Jeff Conaway, famous for portraying struggling actor Bobby Wheeler in the show’s first four seasons and his role as Kenickie in “Grease,” tragically died in 2011 at the age of 60 due to pneumonia and sepsis. Conaway had battled drug addiction for many years.

After 40 years, “Taxi” remains a timeless TV classic cherished by fans. The show’s popularity endures in syndication, and all seasons are available for streaming on Paramount Plus. Witnessing the stars of “Taxi” reunite after all these years is a testament to the love and appreciation for this iconic sitcom.
