There must have been something in the drinking water at McKinley High, because the three main stars of "The Wonder Years" -- Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, and Josh Saviano — all went on to earn impressive degrees in real life. After the series ended, Savage attended Stanford University, where he chose to forgo the glamour of Hollywood for a room in the
Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house. Although he briefly returned to his acting career in 1997 to star in the short-lived series "Working," he graduated a year later with a
bachelor's degree in English. Still, Tinseltown beckoned. He's an
established director who has helmed episodes for numerous popular series, including "Modern Family" and "Two Broke Girls," and is a producer on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."
McKellar graduated summa cum laude from UCLA with a degree in mathematics. She went on to write a few best-selling books, hoping to inspire girls with her passion for numbers. She hasn't totally left acting behind. She does
voice-over work on "Young Justice" and appeared in the recent Syfy film "
graduating from Yale, Saviano attended the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City. He now
Morrison Cohen in Manhattan.
