Get ready to have your minds blown, people, because Monday, September 14 is Logan Henderson‘s 31st birthday! Yep, the actor was only 20 years old when he starred in Big Time Rush, which means it has been more than a decade since the Nickelodeon show first premiered, and boy, has he changed a lot since then, which begs the question – where are the cast now?
As fans know, the series premiered back in November 2009, and it also starred Carlo PenaVega, James Maslow and Kendall Schmidt. It was about four best friends who decided to start a band together, and it documented their road to success!
It went on for four seasons before it came to an end in July 2013, but things didn’t end there. After the show concluded, the guys continued to make music together — dropping three epic albums and embarking on numerous tours over the years — before they ultimately split in March 2014.
So what exactly are the guys up to now, you ask? Well, we decided to do some investigating, and it turns out, they all went on to achieve big solo careers on their own!
They’ve all accomplished so much over the last 10 years, and get this, you guys — one of them has even become a dad! Wow, it’s crazy how time flies, isn’t it? The band was a big part of our childhoods, so the fact that they’re all grown up now is seriously making us feel old! Here’s what they’re all doing these days…
What is Logan Henderson up to now?
After the band went their separate ways, Henderson took a 3-year break to focus on his personal life. But in January 2017, the former Nickelodeon star stepped back into the spotlight and dropped his debut solo single, “Sleepwalker.”
Then, in May 2018 he released his first EP, Echoes of Departure and the Endless Street of Dreams — Pt. 1. He’s currently working on his second album, Echoes of Departure and the Endless Street of Dreams – Pt. 2, and we still have his latest single, “Disappear,” on repeat, TBH.
As for his love life, the singer was linked to Makenzie Vega and Britt Robertson over the years, but now, he’s reportedly single.
What is Carlos PenaVega up to now?
After Big Time Rush, PenaVega continued to make music. His first single, “Electrico,” came out in February 2014. Then, in 2017 he dropped another song called “Bésame.”
Besides making music, he has also landed some major acting roles. He starred in the TV shows The Casagrandes, The Loud House, The Power Couple, Life Sentence and more. He also appeared in numerous movies like Mighty Oak, Sleep Away, Love at Sea, Spare Parts and others!
But that’s not all. PenaVega also competed in Season 21 of Dancing With the Stars, where he came in fourth place. He got married to Alexis Vega on January 4, 2014, and they welcomed their first child together, a son named Ocean King PenaVega, in December 2016. Their second son, Kingston James PenaVega, was born in June 2019.
What is James Maslow up to now?
Maslow did not slow down after his time in Big Time Rush! Just like his former costar, the actor also competed in Dancing With the Stars! He participated in the 14th season and came in fourth place. In 2018, he also competed in the first American season of Celebrity Big Brother, where he was evicted on day 24. He also went on to star in Sequestered, Seeds of Yesterday, 48 Hours to Live, Love Exclusively, Bachelor Lions and more! He’s currently got four new flicks in the works, so keep your eyes peeled for him!
As for his music career, his first single, “Lies,” came out on July 24, 2015. Then, in 2017, he dropped his debut album, How I Like It. He’s released a bunch more songs since then, and they’re all bops!
Over the years, Maslow dated Aislinn Paul and Halston Sage. Most recently, he was in a relationship with Gabriela Lopez for more than a year, before he announced that they had split in January 2019.

He also continued to act, appearing in Are You There God? It’s Me Margot, School of Rock and more. The actor has been dating Micaela von Turkovich since 2015, and they are seriously so cute together!
