In 2004 the European Union saw the biggest expansion in its history, absorbing 10 new member states into the big, sometimes not so happy, family. However, 2004 also saw another milestone in history of Europe, the release of the bawdy teen comedy, EuroTrip.

Now that an entire decade has been and gone, let's remind ourselves of EuroTrip's principle stars and see what they've been up to since their big cross-cultural adventure.

Scott Mechlowicz - Scott Thomas

What Has He Been In Since?: Gone (2006), Waiting Forever (Jim Donner), Cat Run (2011), Eden (2012) and Cat Run 2 (2014).

Fun Fact: In the film, Scott's email address is revealed as [email protected] Since the release of the movie, the domain name has been registered by someone in Michigan.

Jacob Pitts - Cooper Harris

What Has Be Been In Since?: The Novice (2006), The Pacific (2010), The Good Wife (2012), Elementary (2014), Justified (2010-2015).

Fun Fact: The house party scene actually contained kegs with real beer. As a result Jacobs was apparently quite drunk when he is thrown behind Scotty following the hot tub incident.

Michelle Trachtenberg - Jenny

What Has She Be Been In Since?: Six Feet Under (2004), Beautiful Ohio (2006), Black Christmas (2006), 17 Again (2009), Cop Out (2010), Mercy (2009-2010), Weeds (2011), Robot Chicken (2006-2012), Gossip Girl (2008-2012) and The Scribbler (2014).

Fun Fact: During her bikini scene, Trachtenberg shook her hair so much she became dizzy and fell over.

Travis Wester - Jamie

What Has He Been In Since?: Stone & Ed (2008), Bones (2010), Ghostfacers (2010), God Bless America (2011) and Supernatural (2006-2014).

Fun Fact: Despite being security conscious, Jamie has his passport stolen in Paris. Although preventing him getting home, this wouldn't have stopped him entering the Netherlands or Germany, as passports are not required.

Vinnie Jones - Mad Maynard

What Has He Been In Since?: Extras (2005), She's The Man (2006), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), Hell Ride (2008), Year One (2009), Age of the Dragons (2011), Elementary (2013), Arrow (2015) and Awaken (2015).

Fun Fact: Although Jones played a Manchester United supporting hooligan in EuroTrip, he actually started his career as a soccer player in England, although he never played for Manchester United. This aggressive style as player earned him the 'hard man' image on the field, something which he later capitalized on in films.

Matt Damon - Donny

That's right. Matt Damon was actually already a pretty big star when he cameoed in EuroTrip as Donny - the rock band singer who is cheating with Scott's girlfriend. A fact he makes blatantly clear in the song, 'Scottie Doesn't Know.'

What Else Has He Been In Since?: The Bourne Supremacy (2004), Ocean's Twelve (2004), The Departed (2006), The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), The Informant! (2009), Green Zone (Miller), True Grit (2010), Contagion (2011), Elysium (2013) and The Monuments Men (2014).

Fun Fact: In real life, Matt Damon actually lost his girlfriend to a band member. That band member turned out to be Lars Ulrich from Metallica.
