While the larger career of Doherty wound down after “D3” came out, he’s still managed to appear on a number of shows and in a few movies such as “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Ghost World,” “Argo,” “Bones,” and “CSI: Miami.” He’s also picked up another passion – writing. He got some schooling done at Northwestern University, graduating in 1999, and now has a theater degree.
He’s been working as a playwright and writer ever since. He wrote and directed the short “First Stone,” which came out in 2012. He originally auditioned for the role of Fulton Reed and got the Averman role when Hensen was picked as the enforcer.
Elden Henson Today
After his time on the ice finished, Henson went on to have a successful movie and television career, though being a famous A-listed might not be in the cards. The apex of his career came in the mid-2010s when he was able to be part of two of the biggest franchises in the world.
At the same time, he was not only Pollux in the “Hunger Games” movies, a character that goes from cameraman to slave to rebel through the course of the movies. but he was also Foggy Nelson in the Netflix series “Daredevil,” as well as the other shows set in the same continuity (“Jessica Jones,” etc.).
Matt Doherty as Lester Averman
The group of kids that made up the Ducks was diverse in the different types of thinking. Case in point: Lester Averman, a bespectacled nerd who is nonetheless happy and ready to jump into anything that will help his team win. Matt Doherty portrayed this curly-haired character, and at the same time, he was building a resume with appearances in “Home Alone” (Steffan, Kevin's cousin.)
Of course, he was also in the Mike Myers film “So I Married an Axe Murderer.” While he's good on the ice, Lester has easily pushed around by opposing enforcers. The character also provides a lot of the show's comic relief.
Brandon Quintin Adams as Jesse Hall
For only the first two films, Brandon Quintin Adams portrayed Jesse Hall on the team. His performance in the first movie was good enough to earn him a Young Artist Award nomination. He didn't win it that time, but his role as Kenny DuNunez in “The Sandlot” earned him not only another nom but a piece of hardware when he won.
Jesse was at first suspicious of Coach Bombay, thinking he was a rich dealer. As a forward, he was a leader on the ice and was known for his sharpshooting. In the famous flying V, he took the lead spot.
