Devon Sawa Liked My Tweet
Pre-teen me is freaking out. Devon Sawa liked my tweet. If you don't know who Devon Sawa is, let me clue you in. But 1. How dare you? and 2. Like, how do you not know?
Anyway, Devon Sawa first came into my life in the last few moments of Casper. This 90's version of Casper starred Christina Ricci and Bill Pullman. Devon played the ghost as a real boy! And he changed my whole life with these words, "I told you I was a good dancer. Can I keep you?"
Then, he proceeded to make 12-year-old me all squishy inside as Scott Wormer in Now and Then and also as Junior Floyd in The Little Giants. Other notable roles include, Night of the Twisters, Idle Hands, and Final Destination. He also played Stan in Eminem's "Stan" music video.
However, 90's Teen Heartthrob worlds collided when Devon Sawa co-starred with none other than, Jonathan Taylor Thomas (JTT), in Wild America and that's where this story begins.
(Full disclosure, I also loved JTT. Like more than I want to admit. But I did.)
And then, Devon liked it!
