FTHN Flashback: Mighty Ducks – Where Are They Now?
The Mighty Ducks trilogy is a timeless classic. Besides Miracle, these movies are my favorite hockey films.
The main hockey star, Charlie Conway was played by Joshua Jackson who went on to play Pacey Witter on Dawson’s Creek. He has been in numerous films and other TV shows over the years, but most recently he can be seen with his longtime girlfriend Diane Kruger.
Coach Bombay, another leading role in the movies, was played by Emilio Estevez. After the Ducks, he had a brief 2 year marriage to Paula Abdul (strange). He has since broken into the directing scene and starred as Charlie Sheen’s brother in Two and a Half Men.
Greg Goldberg, better known as Goldberg played by Shaun Weiss, was the goalie who was coincidentally afraid of the puck. Weiss is also well known for starring in Heavyweights (another great movie). He has since shed his weight and is now attempting to revive his career by starting a kickstarter fund.
Unfortunately, his weight wasn’t the only thing he shed. According to TMZ, Weiss was accused of abusing his girlfriend.
Adam Banks, the cake eater who originally played for the Hawks, was played by Vincent Larusso. Eventually, he becomes a core part of the Ducks team. Larusso attended Boston University and graduated from the school of management and continues acting in Los Angeles. He had a part in Superhero Movie and on the series Dollhouse. Most recently he had a part in the independent film Damaged Goods.
Jesse Hall, played by Brandon Adams, was known for calling people “cake eaters.” He went on to have a starring role in The Sandlot and had appearances in popular TV shows such as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Sister, Sister. Adams is not on the acting scene much these days.
Connie Moreau, was the first girl to play with the Ducks. Connie was played by Marguerite Moreau who graduated from Vassar College has continued to steadily work in the acting business. She has played roles in popular shows like Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, and Shameless to name a few.
Fulton Reed, one half of the bash brothers, was known for his killer slap shot. He was played by Elden Henson who is now best known for starring in The Butterfly Effect and Deja Vu.
Dean Portman, the other bash brother, was played by Aaron Lohr. He is a graduate of UCLA theater program and is still busy in the acting business. His most famous role was Steve in Rent and he has also had other various roles in TV shows.
Lester Averman, aka the lovable nerd, was played by Matt Doherty. He went on to star in So I Married an Axe Murderer and Ghost World. Additionally he is working on a career as a playwright.
Peter Mark was Jesse Hall’s BFF and looked pretty badass for a kid in his leather jacket. JD Daniels can now be found on Broadway. He has starred in Les Miserables and Conversations with My Father.
Tammy Duncan was originally a figure skater turned hockey player (someone I wish I was). This was Jane Planks biggest role as an actress. She can now be found in the recording studio.
Hans was Coach Bombay’s mentor and a fan favorite. Joss Ackland is a distinguished English actor. He has appeared in over 100 movies, scores of plays and a plethora of television programs in his six-decade career.
Russ Tyler made his debut in D2, but Keenan Thompson is arguably one of the more famous actors to have starred in the Mighty Ducks. He went on the star in multiple Nickelodeon TV shows as well as Saturday Night Live.
Word to the wise, if you haven’t watched any or all of the Mighty Ducks trilogy you are seriously missing out!
