Kevin Joseph Zegers was born in Woodstock, Ontario, Canada on September 19th, 1984. Zegers began acting in commercials when he was six years old and then moved on to bigger acting projects.

After appearing on an episode of the Canadian series Street Legal in 1992, Zegers landed his first film role, appearing in 1993’s Life with Mikey which starred Michael J. Fox.

In 1995, Zegers worked on The Mouth of Madness with Sam Neill, appeared with Kate Jackson in The Silence of Adultery, and played a young boy suffering from stigmata in an episode of The X Files with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. The following year, he appeared in Specimen with Mark-Paul Gosselaar and landed a role on the Canadian series Traders.

In 1997, Zegers played opposite a basketball playing dog in Air Bud. Apparently cornering the sports-playing animals market, he would later star in 1998’s Air Bud: Golden Receiver, 2000’s Air Bud: World Pup and MVP: Most Valuable Primate, and 2002’s Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch.

In 2004, Zegers starred in Dawn of the Dead with Sarah Polley and Ving Rhames, Some Things That Stay with Katie Boland and The Hollow with Kaley Cuoco.

His profile was raised in 2005 when played opposite Felicity Huffman in the critically-acclaimed Transamerica. He then worked with Tim Allen and Courteney Cox on the family superhero film Zoom and body-swapped with Samaire Armstrong in It’s a Boy Girl Thing.
