I’d like to take a moment and pay tribute to a very special actor from the 90’s, Jason Marsden. You may know him as Eric’s best friend from Boy Meets World or Brittany Murphy’s brother from Almost Home. Perhaps, you’d recognize the melodic timber of his tenor as the voice of Binx the cat from Hocus Pocus. This guy owned the 90’s. He may have played mostly minor roles, but he was everywhere, and chances are you owe a great deal of your childhood entertainment to him.
Step by Step
Jason played one of the male lead’s best friends in this 90’s version of The Brady Bunch. Can you spot Jason in this cast photo?
Jason played DJ’s rich boyfriend and even caused some turmoil between DJ and Kimmy Gibbler. DJ broke up with him and then he went on a date with Kimmy. (gasp!)
Almost Home (a.k.a. The Torkelsons) was a show I watched after church on Sunday’s. I doubt anyone else watched it because it only lasted two seasons. It featured a pre-Clueless Brittany Murphy and…you guessed it! Jason Marsden. This time he was a series regular and a lead. Sorry it only lasted one season, Jason 😦 But hey, you did get to go to prom with Allyson Hannigan!
A Goofy Movie
First of all, A Goofy Movie came out in 1995. Does anyone else think that is weird? Secondly, Jason Marsden voiced Goofy’s son, Max!
Boy Meets World
Perhaps you remember seeing Jason as a recurring character in the first couple of seasons of Boy Meets World. He played Eric’s bff “Jason” and they both dating the same incredibly annoying girl.
