stats: 6'2"
family: mother, Fiona (is a prominent casting director in Vancouver); sister, Ashleagh
status: Australian mag Dolly reports that Josh is taken (by an older woman), quoting Josh: "I really like that she's so formed as a person. That's a fantastic, beautiful thing."

trivia: He's most commonly known for mooning the "Dawson's Creek" cast.  As co-star Michelle Williams stated, "I've seen that boy's butt more times than I'd care to mention." (She says it's actually motivation for her to cry in scenes!) While filming "Dawson's Creek" in Wilmington, North Carolina, Josh shares digs with co-star James Van Der Beek.
did you know?: Josh is left-handed; he was kicked out of school twice, once for lack of attendance (during the filming of The Mighty Ducks movies), once for his behaviour; he has a little red birthmark next to his belly button

comments: Born in Vancouver, BC, with a mom who is a major casting director, one would think you'd be led away from a career in acting. But at age 11, Joshua decided he wanted to act. His mom brought him to an audition, hoping to dissuade him, but it convinced him that he wanted to act. And he got the part. So far confined to light teen fare, and mostly reprising his Charlie Conway role in the Mighty Ducks movies, Joshua seems destined for better roles. We're looking for better things from this young hunk. He exploded onto a very popular scene with his role in the WB series, "Dawson Creek" (Wednesday's at 8 on the WB). Josh was opposite Ryan Phillippe and Sarah Michelle Gellar in Cruel Intentions, and seen recently in The Skulls.
