The kids of "Daddy Day Care"

Daddy Day Care is one of my guilty pleasure movies. The reason I find it so great is because of the adorable kids (in a not creepy way). So I just wanted to do a little update on them since we pretty much know what the adults look like and are up to. Of course they don't look that much different, but hey these are always fun =)



Let's start with Khamani Griffin. He played the part of Eddie Murphy and Regina King's song, Ben. After Daddy Day Care, he went to co-star on the UPN/CW series All of Us, with Duane Martin and LisaRaye McCoy. That lasted 4 seasons. He also has been in ER, My Name is Earl, and Without a Trace. Voice work for Happy Feet and Barnyard. He is now 9 years old.

Max Burkholder played Max. He was the kid with the infamous "I missed" line. As you can see, this kid apparently does not age, as he looks exactly the same way as he did in DDC. After the movie he has done a lot, including: Friends with Money w/ Jennifer Aniston and Catherine Keener, Disney Channel's The Suite Life of Zach and Cody and voice work for The Land Before Time, My Friends Tigger and Pooh and American Dad. More recently he played Jack McCallister in Brothers and Sisters on ABC. He is now 10 years old.

Next up, Arthur Young. He played Nicky, the kid who only spoke Klingon. After DDC, he was in When a Stranger Calls, The Young and the Restless and the District. Before he was in Alias and Punk'd. He most recent job was 2 episodes of Invasion. He just had his 12th birthday.

Elle Fanning played Jamie, the adorable little girl always on her cell phone. She is also known as Dakota Fanning's little sister. She has done a ton of work before (I am Sam, Judging Amy), and after DDC. She's been in CSI: NY and Miami, Because of Winn Dixie, House, Babel, Law and Order: SVU and much more. Her IMDB page lists more movies in pre and post production. She is now 9 years old.

Hailey Noelle Johnson played Becca, the smart one, the only one who could read. She has not done much after DDC. Her resume includes: Miss Match, Surviving Christmas, Rebound, Friends with Money (with Max Burkholder) and voice work on Curious George. She just celebrated her 10th birthday.

Shane Baumel played Crispin, the kid with the anger management issues who always kicked Eddie Murphy. After DDC, he was in such shows as The King of Queens, The Bernie Mac Show, and Andy Barker, P.I. He was also in Wild Hogs, and has done voice work for Curious George, Happy Feet and Over the Hedge. He is now 10 years old (11 in Feb.)

And lastly, Jimmy Bennett played the part of Tony or The Flash. He was the kid that always dressed up and thought of himself as The Flash. After DDC, he has done a lot of work, mostly voice overs. Voice work includes: I Want a Dog For Christmas, Charlie Brown, The Polar Express, and Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie. Movies/TV: Gilmore Girls, Poseidon, and most recently, Evan Almighty. He has other stuff in pre and post production. He is now 11 (12 in Feb.)

I could not find info on the screamer who would only be quiet when someone gave him money. Mainly because I didn't know that characters name. If I find it, I'll add him =)

That said, the first boy is too much cute!

Max and Khamani were/are so cute! Seems horrible to have favorites, but they made me laugh. :)

I like this movie too! These two kids I was babysitting made me watch it and I thought it was adorable. Becca was my favourite! "Where's Hong Kong?"

You forgot about the little boy who constantly screamed and only stopped when he got money :p

So weird, today I was at Steve and Barrys and I saw this little boy with curly hair walking around and I'm like he looks so familiar and it was Max Burkholder. Wouldn't have known if I didn't see this!

"I could not find info on the screamer who would only be quiet when someone gave him money.Mainly because I didn't know that characters name. If I find it, I'll add him =)"

LOL!
The character's name was Dylan, he was played by Felix Achille. *nerrrrd* :] He's in the background of the Elle Fanning picture too XD


Good post, btw. Max is awesome cute.

Jimmy Bennett was in that horrific movie "The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things" *shudders*.
Nightmares for months.
