In this one, which stars the eldest and youngest Lawrence brothers, a mean 20-year-old living in L. is forced to spend time on his cousin’s ranch in Montana. Shia La Beouf plays a teenager named Eddie with a developmental disability whose twin sister Tru is making a documentary about him in this DCOM, which also features Mare Winningham. The sequel to Horse Sense deserves slightly better placement on this list for four reasons: 1) Middle Lawrence brother Matthew joins, 2) It is set in Australia, 3) There are pirates, 4) Reverend Camden from 7th Heaven is in it. This is definitely the most racially charged DCOM (and perhaps piece of Disney Channel content) ever. C., black teen Piper Dellums is excited to host an African exchange student, until she finds out it’s a white South African girl named Mahree. In this one, a family with two children moves into the town where their grandfather has just died and the son thinks his spirit is trying to tell them something.It is probably the least douchey La Beouf has ever been (Holes included), but, much like The Color of Friendship (more on that later) it's a little too much #realtalk to be appropriately fun DCOM fodder. There are a lot of tense moments (including an argument over the word "caffer," shown above), but it ends with a pretty hokey kumbaya moment in which Mahree joins the Dellums family at an African pride event. The cast is top notch: Hayden Panettiere, her brother Jensen, and Bill Pullman. He and his sister start doing some investigating and eventually come in contact with a trio of ghosts dubbed the Soul Patrol, who look for fellow spirits who don't want to cross over. In this Orphan Black-meets-Alex Mack tale, Lawrence plays a seventh-grader named Will who accidentally clones himself using a kit from the “Ocean Pups” science organization after stirring water with his comb that has his hair on it.Lucy from 7th Heaven plays a girl who's into driving racecars, but regrettably little else about this movie is memorable, possibly because it's based on a true story, and as a result doesn't include enough of the requisite supernatural elements or high school cafeteria drama that make DCOMS so good. And Jamie’s breaking-the-fourth-wall spiels were extra self-indulgent.Bryan Mac Kenzie from the Father of the Bride films stars as the father of Haley Joel Osment’s sister Emily (of Hannah Montana fame).The movie also stars Moises Arias who was also on Hannah Montana and is now basically a member of the Pinkett-Smith family. The Michalka sisters (a staple of mid-‘00s Disney Channel and the ladies behind some fantastic songs) star as a Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie-esque duo of spoiled girls who nearly burn their house down and then are forced to work at the family dairy.
In the same year, Suvari featured in the popular teen comedy America Pie as Heather.
The film earned commercial success and fame and she reprised her role as Heather in American Pie 2 and American Reunion.
In coming years, Mena performed various roles in several successful films and television shows including The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, South of Hell and Badge of Honor.
By the time, Suvari start acting and made her first guest appearance on the television show Boy Meets World at the age of fifteen.
In 1997, she made her film debut from the low budget drama Nowhere.
Bonus: The Vampire Diaries fans will notice Tyler Lockwood plays one Michalka’s love interest. (Note: There was a Twitches sequel — and some other follow-ups and lesser remembered DCOMs — that didn't even land on this list.
