Whoa, Wait… ‘Mortal Instruments’ Star Kevin Zegers is Josh From ‘Air Bud’?!

Much like when we all discovered that Mike from Homeland (actor Diego Klattenhoff) was also Shane Oman from Mean Girls and our minds were collectively blown, this reveal changes everything. 

In the midst of trying to figure out why exactly Kevin Zegers looks so intense as Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood in the upcoming adaptation of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones in our exclusive image from the film (general consensus seems to be that he’s seething with jealousy while watching Clary and Jace have a moment together), something else dawned on us. No, not that Magnus is totally a better fit for Alec, but that the Canadian-born 28-year-old Zegers is… Josh from Air Bud! Just all grown up and mega-hot!

That’s right, the precocious youngster who befriends the world’s most athletically-inclined golden retriever in the 1997 family comedy (and its hilariously named sequels Air Bud: Golden Receiver and Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch) is now the black sheep of the Shadowhunters from Cassandra Clare‘s beloved YA series. Don’t believe us? See for yourself (above).
