In 1992, the Sports Movie world was changed with the debut of the first “The Mighty Ducks” movie. For kids who grew up in that time (myself included), this movie became an instant classic. Now it’s time to see what some of your favorite characters are up to these days. (NOTE: This post only features D1. D2 and D3 WU@W’s to come later).
Emilio Estevez as Gordon Bombay
Emilio Estevez! The Mighty Duck Man, I swear to God….haha. Estevez was the “star” of the film and the main established actor at the time of the filming. Mainly since the ending of the Trilogy he has done television in lieu of movies with appearances on “The West Wing,” “The Guardian,” “Cold Case,” “CSI:NY,” “Two and a Half Men,” and “Numb3rs.”
Vincent Larusso as Adam Banks
Larusso graduated from Boston University’s School of Management in 2000, and had a short role in “Superhero Movie” in 2008. Other than that, he hasn’t really been acting. During the summers while he attended college, he did work as a waiter at Charley’s Eating and Drinking Saloon. He did have a fan site online, but it appears to no longer be up.
Joshua Jackson as Charlie Conway
Undoubtedly the biggest star of any of these cast members now, Jackson went on to fame in a ton of different areas. He was a star of “Dawson’s Creek” and has appeared in tons of movies like “Urban Legend,” “Scream 2,” “Cruel Intentions,” and “The Skulls.” He also dated Katie Holmes and Rosario Dawson, and currently dates model Diane Kruger. You can see him now on the show “Fringe” on Fox, currently in its second season.
Elden Henson as Fulton Reed
Surprisingly enough, Elden has had a pretty nice career after the trilogy of films. He’s appeared in “She’s All That,” “O,” “Cast Away,” “Dumb & Dumberer : When Harry Met Lloyd,” “The Butterfly Effect,” “Lords of Dogtown,” and “Deja Vu.” He even has television credits to his name like “Law and Order : SVU,” “ER,” and “Private Practice.” Henson attended Emerson College.
Shaun Weiss as Greg Goldberg
Weiss started his acting career on “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse” believe it or not. He also appeared, before the triology, on “Charles in Charge,” “Webster,” and “The Cosby Show.” Since his Mighty Duck days, he has mainly been in television with appearances in “Boy Meets World,” “King of Queens,” “Freaks and Geeks,” “Las Vegas,” and “Crossing Jordan.” He was also the owner and operator of “Unique Whips,” a show on the Speed Channel from 2005-2008.
Matt Doherty as Lewis Averman
Since the trilogy, Averman had a role on the short lived series “Boston Common,” but has had appearances in shows like “CSI,” “CSI:Miami,” “Boston Public,” “Dark Blue,” and “Bones.” He’s also in the upcoming 2010 movie “Last Call.”
Garette Ratliff Henson as Guy Germaine
The brother of Elden, this Henson played Guy Germaine in the film. Besides the trilogy, he can also be seen as Christina Ricci’s love interest in “Casper.” He attended Sara Lawrence college, and currently lives in New York with his wife.
Marguerite Moreau as Connie Moreau
After D3, Moreau appeared in “Boy Meets World,” “3rd Rock from the Sun,” and “Blossom.” She graduated from Vassar College in 1999 and then starred in the awesomely dope “Wet Hot American Summer,” and also in “Runaway Jury.” She has also appeared in “Lost,” “The OC,” and “Mad Men” in television.
