Devon Sawa took to social media to share an adorable video of his son, Hudson, watching his movie "Casper." The Canadian actor was only a teenager when he was picked to star in the 1995 children's fantasy flick.
Sawa, 41, posted a heartwarming clip of his 6-year-old son, Hudson, on Instagram recently. The video shows Hudson on the edge of his seat while watching "Casper."
The film was based on the classic cartoon character "Casper the Friendly Ghost." Sawa simply captioned the post, "Can I keep you." He cited one of the film's most remarkable lines.
AN AMAZING FILM
In the video, Sawa can be heard asking Hudson "Who's that guy?" as the little boy watches his doting father in a scene with co-star Christina Ricci.
When Sawa asks Hudson what he thinks of the movie, he responds that it was marvelous. As of this writing, the video already amassed over 34,700 views.
Many fans commented on the video. And most of them got nostalgic for their own childhoods when they saw Hudson watching "Casper."
Sawa shares Hudson and daughter Scarlett, 4, with wife Dawni Sahanovitch, as reported by Today. A month ago, the actor ridiculed himself on Twitter for an accidental NSFW appearance he made during one of Hudson's Zoom meetings with his instructor.
"My son's teacher via zoom 'Hudson, can you tell your daddy to put some pants on. We can see him in the background,''' he tweeted.
In a sincere post on Twitter, Sawa credited Ricci for landing a notable role on "Casper."
ONLY A JOKE
It turns out, Sawa was just kidding. In an interview, he explained that the tweet wasn't an actual thing that occurred. He added that his child's teacher never caught him.
In any case, Sawa's wife, Sahanovitch, has needed to mentor him to dress more appropriately since their son is doing video chats.
Meanwhile, in a sincere post on Twitter, Sawa credited Ricci for landing a notable role on "Casper," as reported by PEOPLE. The actor played the human form of the friendly ghost at the end of the movie.
He told his fans that Ricci had a significant part in him getting the role. He also revealed that the actress proceeded to suggest him for "Now And Then."
Sawa continued tweeting behind-the-scenes tidbits of information about the movie. He said that Malachi Pearson, who provided Casper's voice all through the film, did the hard work.
