  4. 4

  9. 9

    Dude was never cute but i do remember "Can I keep you"

  10. 10

    he was in Casper?!?! really?? that was my favorite childhood movie and I do not recall seeing him. he must look way different

  11. 11

    WHO?! Whaaah I'm usually good @ this.

  12. 12

    Wait, is that the very first Final Destination guy? His nose looks bigger.

  13. 13

    He was in the FIRST final destination.. i can't remember if he was in the second..

  14. 14

    He was also the main character in the first Final Destination, and he played in Eminem's video "stan"

  15. 15

    he was also in final destination! and eminems stan video lol

  16. 16

    That is a great pic of him. He was also in the original Final Destination. Hope his guest role turns into a permanent one. Used to be a big fan, I may even check out the show if he is going to be on it.

  17. 17

    That's crazy. He was gorgeous when he was younger and now he looks rough. At least in that picture. His nose got wider while his face got long and thing…plus he's stoned out of his mind in this picture.

  18. 18

    wow he was so cute with "can i keep you" . whatevs, they'll make him look good with make up and stuff - tv magic

  19. 19

    Aww! I love Devon! He was my dream guy when I was like 14. LOL

  20. 20

    He was Casper when the character transformed from being cute lil'ghostie animation into live, tongue-down-Christina Ricci's- throat, teenage jail bait flesh in the 1995 film. Why he was a cutie patootie as a friendly little ghost but a Casanova sexual rogue of a playah as a live high school boy, no one understands.

    Did someone break his nose since then?

  21. 21

    hmmm, took a break from beating his girlfriends. slackers was dope though

  22. 22

    Re: Soda-Pop-Lover – He was in the same Casper movie as Christina Ricci???

  23. 23

    he was the middle brother in Wild America with jonathan taylor thomas…wonder what he is up to too…

  24. 24


  25. 25

    He's used to be so hot. I loved him in Casper. Something looks off with him though. I don't remember his nose looking like that and those eyebrows need a waxing. Wasn't he on drugs?

  26. 26

    Oh, he was also in Little Giants. That's when I really had a crush on him.

  27. 27

    Wow, he looks haggard! He was in Wild America, pretty good movie… he was cute then!

  28. 28

    Pay attention kids: This is what you'll look like if you mess around with drugs.

    It really is an unbelievable transformation. Devon looks completely unrecognizable. I loved him in Casper, Wild America, Final Destination, and of course Eminem's STAN music video! Regarding his nose, he must have broke it, because even as an adult in Final Destination/Stan it didn't look as huge. Regardless, I've always enjoyed following his career and I hope he is on the right track now. I cannot wait to see the new show!

  29. 29

    Re: SMILE! You're on candid camera!: Yes, he was Casper in the end! "Can I keep you?"

  30. 30

    Who is this guy? I have never seen him on tv or in movies. His nose looks like he just got hit in the face with a frying pan. Is that Bridgette Marquart in the pic with him but cut out?

  31. 31

    Wish it was Jonathan Taylor Thomas lol

    But I liked Devon Sawa too.

  32. 32

    I can't believe everyone's leaving out Little Giants, Now and Then and Slackers…Devon Sawa was my pretend boyfriend for like 5 years after I saw Casper….I'm glad he's back in action…

  33. 33

    He was in the first final destination.. It isn't from that long ago either…

  34. 34

    I love him! Idle Hands is one of my favorite movies.

  35. 35

    Who'd have ever thunk that beating girlfriends wouldn't be the best move for a person's career?

  36. 36

    Awww! He looks great!! Hopefully he starts working on more mainstream projects now! I've always liked him and he's CANADIAN! :P

  37. 37

    It's unfortunate this woman beater got a job. I'm very disappointed the CW would hire a known abuser. I will definitely NOT be watching this show. Here's hoping Devon soon crawls back into the hole he came out of!

  38. 38

    Wow, he looks really different here.

    Re: mollimo – Where do you get your facts?? (Oh wait a minute….) That whole Tapanga thing was an obvious media grab on her part… "KNOWN"…. I'd LOVE to hear your perception of "proof". I personally know him and can confirm he is the FARTHEST this from an abuser. You should be careful when you slander people, I think it's amazing that he's working again. He obviously went through a rough period, but who doesn't these days. Just be careful, people have emotions, be a better person by wishing the best for them. Don't be a loser, don't right bu*lsh*t.

    1. Did he get his gap fixed?
    2. Why does he look so old and crack-headish?
    3. Who's the chick next to him?

    I used to have a huge crush on him back in the day, what happened to Mr. Sawa??
