Sean Astin: ‘I’m Finally Cool With My Kids’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Sean Astin has earned the respect of the three most important fans he’ll ever have.

Astin – best known for his role in The Lord Of The Rings – plays a novice, special agent panda on the Disney Channel’s new animated series, Special Agent Oso, debuting this Saturday (Apr. 4).

Astin says his daughters, who are 12, six, and three years old, are “digging” his latest gig and are finally interested in Dad’s career.

He explains, “They’ve never been impressed by my acting before, but Oso caused an awakening for them. They’ve watched the show 100 times and are starting to watch more of my other stuff!”

Astin’s daughters think Oso is so cool, they no longer mind when he has to leave for work, especially since his schedule still gives him time to make soccer practice and volunteer at their schools.

He’s excited to gain pre-school fans through the show and hopes they’re not disappointed when they meet him, like when Lord Of The Rings fans find out he’s not actually a hobbit.
