Devon Sawa

Devon Sawa is a former child star best known for his movie roles in the movies Casper and Final Destination. Sawa was born on September 7, 1978 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Sawa began his career acting on stage when he was eleven. Three years later he became an advertising spokeschild for Kenner's Nerf Toys.

In 1992 he began appearing in a small role in The Odyssey, a Canadian fantasy series. Sawa subsequently had a larger role in KidZone, a Canadian docudrama about high school. Sawa began acting in movies as the quarterback in Little Giants (1994). In 1995, he appeared in two major motion pictures, Casper (Sawa played a living boy who became the ghost character) and Now and Then. Casper was a major success at the box office, earning $100 million in the U.S. and another $187 million internationally.

Sawa's mid-1990s movie roles made him a heartthrob and one of the most popular child actors of the time. Sawa appeared on the covers of many magazines aimed at pre-teens. According to these magazine covers, Sawa may also have had a gay relationship with fellow washed-up celebrity Jonathan Taylor Thomas:

Sawa's movie success continued through the late 1990s and into 2000. In 1999, he starred in Idle Hands, a horror movie about a boy whose right hand has a mind of its own and goes on a killing spree. Sawa followed up with a starring role in Final Destination in 2000, playing a boy who cheats death when he has a clairvoyant vision that an airplane on which he was to fly was going to explode. I personally liked Final Destination and thought that Sawa was a very good actor in it.





Sawa must have felt like he was on top of the world in 2000. At the young age of 22 he already had an impressive resume of movie roles and must have earned millions of dollars from his roles. He also appeared in the music video for Eminem's Stan in 2000. However, Sawa's star quickly faded after 2000 as he got in trouble with the law and stopped getting decent acting roles.

Sawa's legal troubles began in 2000 when he was arrested for public intoxication and disturbing the peace. In 2003, Sawa was convicted of driving with a blood alcohol level above California's legal limit of .08. In 2005, the police were called to Sawa's apartment when he was allegedly beating up his girlfriend. Apparently things got so dicey that a SWAT team broke into his apartment to rescue his girlfriend from him! Sawa was arrested for either resisting arrest or obstructing the duties of a police officer. (I heard a rumor that Sawa may have served a prison sentence for his crime, but I cannot confirm this information.)

Sawa also supposedly developed a nasty drug addiction that fueled his erratic behavior. His odd behavior and apparent anger management issues scared away movie producers. Sawa's only decent role since 2000 was in 2002's Extreme Ops, a poorly received action adventure flick. Sawa's youthful boyish look that helped him gain movie roles in his youth faded as he got older - now, he's nothing more than a 29-year-old man with a baby face, acne, and a very wide nose as shown in this recent photo:

As if his washed-up career and problems with the law weren't bad enough, Sawa may have also contracted herpes, as shown in the picture below:

For the reasons discussed above, there can be no doubt that Devon Sawa is one washed up celebrity!

He was pretty balls in SLC Punk.

In the photo second from the bottom, he looks like danny pintauro's gay lover

He probably beat his gf because he's having a tough time comming to terms with his sexuality...he ought to just come out of the damn closet already!!

Speaking of washed up celebrities all you need to do is turn on celebrity fit club as well as VH1. Lets see you got Willie Ames,Dustin Diamond,Tina Yothers, & one celeb that has not been mentioned as washed up(Erin
Moran). Then to top it off you have two shows with two of your typical 70's/80's washed upppers:Scott whiney ass Baio & Chris I still wanna be known as Peter Brady Knight. I will admit all these shows are addictive yet a pathetic attempt at a career comeback.
Afterall the two Corey's have tried it & failed miserably. Next washed up celebrity should be Michael "I'm a racist ahole" Richards from Seinfeld.

I agree. Michael Richards racist tyrade was a total career killer. He now definetly qualifies as washed up!!!

JewveBeenFramed said...

I thought he was pretty hawt back in the day. I liked idle hands, I know I would give him something to keep his hands occupied!! But look at his face now! What a state. I wouldn't mind hammering his nose with my cock though.

You should do a profile on that wigger Eminem. He's fat, reclusive and looks like a butch lesbian now, due to his fatness.

he was soooooo c-u-t-e when he was younger!!!!!!!!!

He is looking a little disshelved in that last pic. Still cute, though, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with a wide nose on a dude. ;)

Anonymous said...

Actually just want to let everyone know that he is doing well! I just completed a dui class and he was in it... He looks great and his getting his act together. So maybe he will be back to doing great roles soon!

Gay Zack said...

This guy is gayer than me! I hope he turns to gay porn. I'd love to see him getting fist fucked while another guy skull fucks his mouth so hard that he rips his esophagus.

Anonymous said...

Is it because he scared directors away or because he's just plsin ugly?

Michelle said...

Actually, the magazine covers are talking about a movie that he did with JTT called "Wild America". Not that I doubt they bumped uglies, but I doubt teenybopper magazines would publish that kind of crushing information. LOL.

Nannie Doss said...

That picture of him with the wide nose, is that a bad shot or did he like break it. 'Cause it doesn't seem to fit his other pics

The Larch said...

He looks like Pete Doherty in the last picture.

Michael Richards is the sht! that tyrade was classic..LMAO!

Anonymous said...

That post a few back - it sounds like Devon Sawa has googled himself some drunken night and lashed out. Although I'm surprised that's his girlfriend. Perhaps he's bisexual but I'm more inclined to think he likes men and maybe his "girlfriend" found out.

Anonymous said...

Isn't Michael Richards the loser that played the junkie on Seinfeld? He was always freaky.

Anonymous said...

It looks like he got his nose broken pretty badly. But, I saw a new interview where he apparently got his jacked up teeth bonded. It was done pretty terribly cuz it looks like he was wearing dentures.

Mistress_Lola said...

Most of u people r all so pathetic and hypocritical... you don't even know him and u accuse him of beating his gf!?!?!?! R U kidding me!?!?!?!? I realize that most of these posts are from 2008, but still, you're just contributing to spreading bullshit lies!!! So the guy smoked pot... along with like everyone else in his generation (including me)... big deal... that doesn't mean ANYTHING... somehow that got turned into him being a drug addict... so stupid and small minded!!! And even if he was... what does it matter????? Does it change anything??? NO!!! Does it change his ability to act??? NO!!! I guarantee that half the people in Hollywood that you look up to do a hell of a lot more drugs than he does... so why don't u just lay off!?!?!?!? Bunch of jealous losers!!! I'd like to see u all do better than Devon on the big screen!!!

I saw him on Nikita and he was really hot.

Anonymous said...

Look at him on Nikita, looks like he had Rhino-plasti, a nose job, thined out in the wide nortil area.

Looks nice, and he appears to have slimmed down and toned up some.

Good for him!

Anonymous said...

Jesus Christ, look at that nose. You remember in 'Raging Bull' when La Motta stops fighting and 'retires?' That's what Sawa looks like.

He needs to wash his hair. That would help the acne too.. So many products out there now for acne come on!

The movie Casper was shown again on national tv in my country this morning at 12:30am and I waited for it just to watch Devon whom I remember only appeared at the end of the movie. That part which be turned into human in the movie was the best part ever.. He was so great that he captured the heart of girls who watched the movie just by appearing for a few minutes! Now who else can do that?? Is he really a gay?? I just cannot believe that. And he bashed up his gf?? OMG... I wish I could hear more good news about Devon. And I wish him all the best in Devon's movie career... no matter what people say about him.

Give him a break, he's not that bad. He just went through a tough time. He looks great now.

Melissa said...

So I started watching Nikita and Devon Sawa is in it. I didn't even recognize him. I kept thinking who is this guy? I googled him and couldn't believe it was the same guy that was in Final Destination. He's buffed up, definitely got a nose job (it's like a whole different nose but looks totally natural.. not a crap plastic surgery job you see on so many celebrities) plays an ex assassin on the show and his acting is quite good. He's pretty easy on the eyes too.
Nice to see he's gotten his act together and is back in the spotlight.

I'm from Vancouver and have hung out with him. He did have a really bad drug problem, I felt so terrible for him because he wanted to get better.

Anonymous said...

He must have a terrible substance abuse problem. He's 32 y/o but looks at least 10 years older. I don't know anything about his personal life.

Anonymous said...

Lol is this just a hate site? I've seen him in a few things recently and he hasn't been bad.

If he'd beaten his girlfriend so bad swat had to save her he would have been prosecuted, gossip nonsense lol, or typical media exaggeration

BayBeBluu said...

I think he's handsome ... Loved him since I was old enough to

Anonymous said...

tsk tsk tsk

from a young and charming boy to a very old looking and out of life guy.

maybe he should stick with the casper character :D

His arrest record for beating up his girlfriend is public record, I've seen it online. None of this is just rumors, he did have a really bad drug problem as well. But, he's cleaned himself up thank God and doing well now.

His arrest for beating up his girlfriend is actually public record, because I've seen the scans of it online and he did have a bad drug problem. None of this is just rumors. Choosing not to believe it doesn't make it any less true, but he thankfully has gotten his life together and has been engaged to someone for several years now. He's doing well.

Yo dude there is always is someone like you claiming to know celebrity dude I was not even in a dui class get a life but thanks atleast you said I was doing well..

I just stumbled upon this and had to comment. I have to say i concur. I know its a few years late, but fuck it. He apparently needs back up on here lol. Why does nobody remember seaquest? I loved him in that.

Frau Rammstein said...

Its a few years late, but I felt inclined to join in since pro sawa is failing here. I concur with what you wrote, he IS a great actor, grew up watching him. Loved seaquest, which people forget existed lol. But, seriously no-one should take the negativity to heart. It's not like the comments are stopping him, in fact he probably isn't even bothered by it. He knows he is talented.

Frau Rammstein said...

Seaquest? My bad wrong person now I feel bad

He's looking pretty good now. Hopefully he's cleaned up for good.

Devon Sawa is a terrible person. I've never heard anything good about him, except for his looks, which are long gone. His neighbors hated him for being rude and beligerant. He has been known to pick fights without provocation. He beat up Daniele Fischel (Topanga from "Boy Meets World") when they were dating. He's a known boozbag and druggie. He deserves every bad thing that's happened to him.

just watched idle hands on demand last night. made me want to know what happend to him. he beat up topanga thats funny as shit...

Doesnt matter what people say.. devon is a great actor, hot guy(i would do him in a heart beat) and thanks to media..wrongly judged by paparazi and a-holes who cant understand that media is full of it and everyone has there own opinion.. those who say they know him and he was a dick, thats your opinion. he may be kinder to others. media blow everything out of preportion so dont believe everything been said.

Devon, if you read this and have not given up on all these rediculous coments.. dont take it to heart, there are billions out there who do love ya and want to see you on the big screen more, including me xx

I heard he caught herpes from working a glory hole at the tavo bell in fresno. For all you sickos I hear he still works the hole from 5 to 7 pm on thursdays.

Devon Sawa was the guy with everything- good looks, talent, money, and popularity. He threw it all away with his arrogance, cruelty to others, and narcissism. Maybe he's grown up and mellowed out, he ought to make some ammends to the many people he's wronged.

Anonymous said...

Just look at how people can judge a person. Good thing Devon is doing well today. This article was written very negatively. And some comments are even worse.

Anonymous said...

Hey fuckface, yeah these people a pussy ass, weak haters. But fact of the matter is your lover Devon was a cokehead. I know I fed him and his loser friends that shit. Eyewitness. Where do you think that nose came from? Hahahaha, became big in a movie about a ghost and now is a ghost. And was in now and then with actors who now...... are then. See the problem is kid actors have no talent in acting so when they grow up, they bomb. Take a look and find the percentage of hit movies and TV shows with kid actors on the cover of "teen beat". A magazine which closeted gay men beat it to, where are they now? Where they belong.... Dead or sucking dick. Or if they're lucky they stopped sucking dick and just suck.

This guy is clearly gay, I could help him come out of the closet. I have a crotchless Klingon suit, a sweet man cave (in more ways than one), and crap tons of lube. Come to papa Devon, I'll be waiting!

Anonymous said...

Why you always slamming the gay community and those who are gay? I review your blog commentaries and see that you have unfairly labelled some former actors as washed up, and used derogatory language to discuss some actors who may or may not be gay. Who cares if they are gay? It's not like ppl are discussing heterosexual actors with straight labels.

Anonymous said...

Holy cow, I looked closely at that teen mag cover and it read, "JT and Devon Go wild." That is so funny. That caption is inadvertently homoerotic to the max. I can only imagine the disappointment felt by the "yellow rain coated" perverts who bought that issue expecting to find something that wasn't there.
