Even 23 years after the original film was released, Kevin Zegers is still remembered for the iconic role. Find out what Kevin Zegers is up to today right here!

Kevin Zegers' Air Bud films have forever cemented the Canadian as a talented actor. Born September 19, 1984, Kevin was just 12 years old when he joined the cast of Air Bud, but he actually got his start at the even younger age of six!

Having appeared in over 30 television commercials and a few smaller roles in films including Life with Mikey (1993) and Canadian TV series Traders, Kevin Zegers' big break would come in 1997!

Kevin Zegers' Air Bud casting as "Josh Framm" would come when he was just 12 years old, and the role would be the boost he needed to get his career going. The 1997 film follows the story of a lonely young boy who befriends a stray golden retriever named "Buddy". 

"Buddy" and Kevin enjoy playing basketball together, and, as it turns out, "Buddy" is quite the star! The original Air Bud film was so successful that there were three sequels made for Kevin to star in:

  • Air Bud: Golden Receiver (1998)
  • Air Bud: World Pup (2000)
  • Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch (2002)
