Hilary Duff, Lalaine And Jake Thomas Have Mini ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Reunion
Hilary Duff reunited with her Lizzie McGuire cast mates Lalaine and Jake Thomas on Monday night at a bowling alley.
Lizzie McGuire Cast Reunites By Accident
Thomas, who starred in the beloved Disney series as Lizzie McGuire’s annoying little brother, Matt, shared a photo of the reunion on Instagram early Tuesday morning.
In the photo, Duff is surrounded by her TV brother and TV best friend, Lalaine, who played Lizzie McGuire’s BFF Miranda Sanchez on the show.
The circumstances of this mini reunion are unclear, but based on Duff’s Instagram post from that night, which makes no mention of her Lizzie McGuire cast, it seems as though Duff was bowling with a group of her friends and simply ran into Thomas and Lalaine.

Thomas confirmed that the reunion was absolutely accidental. At least, part of it was. “So I was spending some time with my friend, and former Lizzie castmate, Lalaine the other night at the local bowling alley (we hang out pretty often these days) when we realized that Hilary was just a few lanes over from us!” Thomas wrote on his website.
According to Thomas, the three young actors hadn’t been in the same room in 10 years (the show ended in 2004): “We managed to chat a little and reconnect. She couldn’t get over the fact that I had a beard and I couldn’t get over the fact that she has a freakin’ kid now! Jeez! We actually grew up!”
Many members of the Lizzie McGuire cast remain close and have previously shared photos of mini reunions. A few months ago, Lalaine shared a photo of herself grabbing lunch with Thomas, captioning it, “Lunching with Brother.”
And one month before that, Thomas and Lalaine reunited with Lizzie McGuire co-star Clayton Snyder, who played Lizzie’s crush Ethan Craft.

For fans wondering where Adam Lamberg, aka Gordo, was during these mini reunions, he is reportedly living in NYC and keeping a low profile.
