Paris Themmen (Mike Teevee)
Themmen is still in the performance industry, just not in front of the screen. He now works as a casting director for commercials. After Wonka, Themmen worked on broadway before taking a break from acting at 14 to “just be a kid.” He went to NYU and got his BFA in theater.
After he graduated Themmen started traveling, going to at least 40 countries. He founded Access International, a travel company that sends backpackers on charter flights to Europe. He dabbled in real estate, retail, financial consulting and film production before settling down with his casting job. He even worked as a Disney Imagineer.
He’s had a few roles since the movie, such as a small part on Star Trek: Voyager and a ‘featured extra’ role in The Big Lebowski. (he’s in the bowling alley and the title sequence).
