In 1996, Will Smith took on some realllly destructive aliens in "Independence Day" -- and what better day to check in with the cast than today, the Fourth of July!

Co-starring Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Harry Connick Jr., Randy Quaid and Harvey Fierstein, "Independence Day" boasted a pretty wild cast -- and they've all been up to some really different things since the movie hit theaters 16 years ago.

Will continued to ward off aliens in the "Men In Black" films, Randy had a string of arrests through 2009-2010 (see one his mug shots above!) and the First Daughter grew up to star on "Parenthood."

But here's some great news for all you "Independence Day" fans -- Director Roland Emmerich told Entertainment Weekly that two follow-ups to "Independence Day" are planned, tentatively titled "ID Forever Part 1" and "ID Forever Part 2"!

The flicks will take place 20 years after the original film, when the distress call sent by the aliens in the first film reaches their reinforcements, who head to Earth with a vengeance.

Check out the gallery above to see what they all look like now!
