Since gaining wide critical acclaim for his role in the gender-bending indie hit Transamerica, Kevin Zegers is fast becoming one of Hollywood’s most in-demand young actors for both independent and mainstream ﬁlms.
Zegers was most recently seen in Kari Skogland’s Irish Republican Army thriller Fifty Dead Men Walking, which premiered at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival and co-starred Sir Ben Kingsley and Jim Sturgess. He also stars in François Velle’s The Narrows as a struggling young man trying to ﬁnd his place within two worlds.
He is currently in production on Tonya Holly’s adaptation, The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, and on Adam Green’s Frozen, in which he plays a snowboarder who, with his best friends, must ﬁght the elements after getting stranded on a chairlift halfway up a New England mountain.
In the 2005 ﬁlm Transamerica, he plays a drug-addled hustler who dreams of meeting the father he never knew. Played by the Oscar® nominated Felicity Huffman, this father turns out to be a conservative transsexual. Zeger’s additional ﬁlm credits include The Stone Angel, Gardens of the Night, Normal, The Jane Austen Book Club, Dawn of the Dead, the Air Bud franchise ﬁlms, MVP: Most Valuable Primate, Komodo, Four Days, Treasure Island, Nico The Unicorn, and his ﬁrst role on screen as a younger Michael J.
