'Mighty Ducks: Game Changers' Full Cast List: Meet Emilio Estevez, Lauren Graham and the rest of the cast of Disney Plus' revival series
Lauren Graham is back to playing a role of a feisty loving mother and Emilio Estevez is back on screen too
The Ducks are certainly not underdogs anymore, and that's where 'Mighty Ducks: Game Changers' picks up. According to the Disney Plus website, "In present-day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom Alex set out to build their own ragtag team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of competitive youth sports."
Let's now introduce you to the cast of 'Mighty Ducks: Game Changers'.
Emilio Estevez as Gordon Bombay
Emilio Estevez returns to reprise one of his most iconic roles, coach Gordon Bombay. Estevez is also on board 'The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers' as executive producer. Off late, Estevez is found more behind the camera directing than in front of it. Perhaps, that's why he chose to return on screen with this role. When he meets people during his travel, they always ask 'Where have you been? If you ever were to come back, we'd love to see you in two roles: One is Gordon Bombay in The Mighty Ducks and the other is Billy the Kid in Young Guns'. He's got those ticked off the boxes now.
Besides 'Mighty Ducks', Estevez is also well-known for his Hollywood lineage. Martin Sheen is his father and Charlie Sheen is his brother. Estevez is known for being a member of the acting Brat Pack of the 1980s, appearing in 'The Breakfast Club', 'St Elmo's Fire', and 'The Outsiders'.
Lauren Graham as Alex
Lauren Graham once again proves that when it comes to being a mother on screen, no one can beat her at it. Lauren plays the spirited single mother of 12-year-old Evan, who is not able to make the cut for 'The Mighty Ducks', which is now something of a powerhouse team. She then comes up with a plan for starting their own team. Who better to mentor this process than Gordon Bombay?
Lauren Graham, of course, has played one of the most lovable screen mothers of all time Lorelai Gilmore on 'Gilmore Girls' for which she received nominations for Screen Actors Guild, Golden Globe and Satellite Awards. Lauren also played Sarah Braverman on the NBC television drama Parenthood from 2010 to 2015.
Brady Noon as Evan
Child star Brady Noon is known for his roles in 'Good Boys', 'Boardwalk Empire' and will be seen in 'Marry Me' in 2022. Interestingly Brady has a twin brother named Connor Noon. Brady and his brother worked alternating shifts playing Tommy Darmody on 'Boardwalk Empire' from the years of 2009 to 2012.
