From his spot on the classic Nickelodeon comedy movie “Good Burger,” to his working relationship with Kel, to appearing on “Saturday Night Live” as a cast member – the longest-tenured cast member ever, since he joined in 2003 – it might be fair to say that Kenan ended up with the best career out of all the young skaters from the Ducks.
He’s appeared in lots of television series, including one that is simply titled “Kenan.” It’s all thanks to “D2,” which was his very first acting job. He’s now also working as a producer and a writer for his own show and several others.
Emilio Estevez Today
This famous actor has done plenty of acting and work both in front of and behind the camera. He's reprised the role of Gordon Bombay for the Disney Plus sequel series “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.” Alongside his brother Charlie Sheen, and his father Martin Sheen, Estevez is a fantastic actor, and he also managed to avoid the issues that have plagued his brother.
Just in the last few years, he's also been in “Guns 3: Alias Billy the Kid” (still in production), which he is also directing, and “The Public.” He's slipped into more directing, picking up both full movies and episodes of shows like “CSI: NY,” “Cold Case,” and “Numb3rs.”
Kenan Thompson as Russ Tyler
Appearing first in “D2,” Russ Tyler joins the team after player Adam Banks suffers a wrist injury. His big contribution to the team was teaching them his special “knuckle puck,” a slapshot that travels in a sine curve rather than a direct, straight shot. Talkative and outgoing, Tyler's addition to the team helped their chances against Team Iceland in “D2” become a greater reality.
While his playing was overall unrefined, he still contributed to the team when they needed him the most. He, along with the other members of the team, attended Eden Hall Academy during the time of “D3.”
Vincent LaRusso as Devin Banks
While he is at first a star player for the Hawks, the Ducks' rivals, it turns out that Banks was playing for the wrong team the whole time – he resides in the Ducks' district. At first, the team refuses to trust him, but his skills are too good to ignore. Unquestionably the best player on the team, at least offensively.
But he ends up getting injured too often, such as in the second film when he tries to hide his wrist injury in order to keep playing against Team Iceland. The rest of the team called him “cake-eater” when he first joined due to his richer family, though the term became one of endearment by the end of the first film.
Vincent LaRusso Today
After the end of the Ducks series, LaRusso dropped out of acting. He studied at Boston University's School of Management and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He currently lives in New York City, where he works in the hospitality sector. In recent years he has become a regular presence at conventions, reunions, and other “The Mighty Ducks” events.
He made an appearance in “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.” He has had a few small roles since moving on, though they've been small and mostly for fun, including, bizarrely, as a bank robber in “Superhero Movie.”
