Jackson, 36, was on the morning program to discuss his new drama, The Affair, while Phillippe sat down with the hosts to talk about his upcoming hostage thriller, Catch Hell. The Dawson's Creek alum was reflecting on the 20th anniversary of his beloved 1994 movie, D2: The Mighty Ducks, when his thoughts trailed to Cruel Intentions.
"Randomly, one of your other guests today, I made a movie with in 1998," he said of Phillippe. "We were both kids [then] and now I just met his son [Deacon], who is closing in on 10. He told me his daughter [Ava] is in high school now."
Jackson had a supporting role in the drama (starring Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon, and Sarah Michelle Gellar) as Blaine Tuttle, the gay confidant and pal of Phillippe's character Sebastian. Like Jackson, Witherspoon recently remembered the film in an amazing #TBT on Instagram. "Ahh the 90's…" Phillippe's ex-wife wrote, alongside a photo from the set of the 1999 flick.
During his sit-down with the Today show on Monday, the former child star told the hosts that he still receives comments about The Mighty Ducks. "Yeah, it's amazing… It's actually the 23rd anniversary of the first one, and 20th anniversary of the second one," Jackson said. "The other benefit of my life is all of my awkward high school moments are caught on camera." (The majority of the cast reunited recently to celebrate the film's 20th anniversary. Charlie Conway, though, did not attend the fun-filled reunion.)
