Paul Reiser? Oh, he's at Sundance

If you've ever wondered about the whereabouts of Paul Reiser or Rutger Hauer, the mystery has been solved. They're both at Sundance.

Reiser was one of television's biggest (and highest-paid) stars with "Mad About You," which ran on NBC from 1992-1999, but since then, he's been writing music.

He appeared at the festival's ASCAP Music Cafe to perform original music he composed with vocalist Julia Fordham. It turns out that Reiser was a classically-trained pianist before he became a stand-up comedian and actor.

And there's good news for fans: We're going to be seeing a lot more of him. "The Paul Reiser Show" is set to debut sometime soon on NBC, and he told CNN he's coming out with another book in the spring.

Rutger Hauer, on the other hand, was for a while Hollywood's go-to villain in movies like "Blade Runner" and "The Hitcher." He's worked steadily since, but at a much lower profile in recent years. Yet at Sundance, Hauer reemerged with two movies, "Hobo with a Shotgun" and "The Mill and the Cross."

In "Hobo" he plays a vagrant wronged by some double-dealers, and he's the lead in "Mill" as well, a movie that's described as a Brueghel painting come to life. To me he's still one of cinema's most commanding presences.

Welcome back, Rutger and Reiser!

    Paul Reiser has not aged well. He looks soooo old. Helen Hunt on the other hand looks as great now as she did on Mad About you. What happened to you Paul???
