Every Halloween there is one classic movie that seems to remain a staple: Hocus Pocus. The tale of the three Sanderson Sisters attempting to suck the souls of the children of Salem on Halloween night in order to stay forever young is a classic and who didn't want to hang out with Max, Dani, Allison and Thackery Binx the cat as they tried to stop the witches before the sun came up? Speaking of Binx, he truly was a cat ahead of his time.
He brought all the sass and I personally went through a part of my childhood after I first saw this movie when I thought all black cats would talk and become my BFF thanks to this movie. But you might've noticed that when Binx goes from a teenager in the beginning of the movie, to a cat and then back to that same teenage boy now in ghost form by the end, his voice sounds a bit different. Well, that's because when Binx is in cat form, he was voiced by another actor: Jason Marsden. And what you might not realize is that Jason has voiced tons of characters from your youth and starred on other beloved shows. He played Eric Mathews' BFF Jason on Boy Meets World and fun fact, is actually best buds with Will Friedle who played Eric IRL:
And he was Nelson on Full House, who you might remember as the super smart and super rich guy dated D.J. Tanner:
The iconic roles keep coming for Jason though. He is the voice of Max Goof, Goofy's son in An Extremely Goofy Movie and House of Mouse.
Plus he's done voiceover roles in shows like Kim Possible, The Fairly Oddparents, The Weekenders, Transformers: Rescue Bots and The Lion Guard to name a few. He's literally been in every childhood fave and then some. Who knew Binx was such a legend? And in case you were wondering, Jason is truly nothing but proud that he's a part of this movie. Earlier in 2017, he even posed along with Winifred, Sarah, and Mary in Walt Disney World.
Plus, he went to a friend's Hocus Pocus themed birthday party dressed as you guessed it, a cat.
Literally how every actor who has appeared in a legendary movie should be, tbh.
