Ty O’Neal McClary joins Mike, Tommy, Kevin to talk about almost quitting acting before he became Dwayne Robertson on the Mighty Ducks, how his roping ability was written into the script, why his dad become Kenan Thompson’s legal guardian for a while, who was the easiest to rope & more.
The episode starts with Mike asking about a random letter he wrote McClary to try to get him on the pod. It likely ended up in Ty’s wife’s hands. (Sorry Ty’s wife).
We then move to on to how McClary got the Mighty Ducks jobs. It all starts with him going on auditions as a 14-year-old in the Dallas area. It came down to him, a kid from Los Angeles and a kid from Georgia. How much did he sweet accent help him get the job?
McClary then tells the story about how he lost a part to Leonardo DiCaprio before moving on to discussing the circumstances that led to him and Kenan Thompson living together during filming.
Thanks to Ty for coming on. Here’s Ty McClary’s IMDB. He went by Ty O’Neal. It’s his middle name and that is what he is credited as in both Mighty Ducks movies.
