When he is "taken" it's by someone with: "I definitely need them to have a sense of humor, somebody who I can laugh with and won't take everything too seriously. I think it's most important to find someone who likes you for who you are and not what you have or what you do. Oh, and a great smile is pretty important!"

Merrick James sent in these addition responses from Kevin to questions from fans:

  1. I know you're a fan but I was wondering ...What do you think of Eminem's lyrics?

    I don't agree with what he says. But I acknowledge his opinion. Whatever makes one feel better about him/herself... whatever floats your boat.

  2. I'm a big fan of yours, What occupation do you plan to pursue if your acting doesn't work out? (I doubt it won't.)

    I guess I'd like to be a teacher or a doctor.

  3. Kevin, what is your favorite scene from "Air Bud: World Pup?" Can't wait until I get to see you in that!

    I liked all the soccer stuff. I like being active.

  4. You seem like a really great guy, and you're really good-looking, so I'm sure you get plenty of offers to "go out." What do you look for in a girlfriend, and who or what would your dream date be like?

    Someone who is funny, makes me laugh. Not saying that looks don't count, but that's not first on my list. My dream date would be somewhere quiet where we can talk, no distractions.

  5. What is your favorite of the movies that you've been in? Why?

    I'd have to say that one of my favorite films is "FOUR DAYS" because I played a character that I'd never portrayed before.

  6. Kevin, I read that you filmed a pilot for Aaron Spelling called "Almost Home." What was the show about and will we ever see it?

    "FINALLY HOME" was about a family who adopts three kids. I doubt it'll be released, but I can only hope.

  7. Hey I'm a huge fan and I was wondering, what's it like working with Yasmine Bleeth, Casper Van Dien, and Victoria Principal?

    I've known Yasmine for a long time. We've worked together before, so I'm really happy to work with her again. Casper and I are big fitness buffs so we work-out together. And Victoria -- well, she's the best. She's "Mommy."

  8. Hi Kevin. I wanted to tell you that you are really hot, and you're a really good actor. I wanted to know who your favorite actors are, and if you have a girlfriend.

    Some of my favorite actors are Anthony Hopkins and Jody Foster. And no, I don't have a girlfriend.

  9. What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you in your life?:)

    I don't really get embarrassed. Sorry! :)

  10. I heard that you will be getting a love interest on Titans. Is this true if so who will the lucky girl be?

    My TITANS character will fall in love with Faith, played by Katie Stuart.

  11. What is your favorite childhood memory?

    When I got my dog "Holly" for Christmas.

  12. Hey Kevin! I was wondering, what was the last CD you bought?

    The last CD I bought was NWA.

  13. So what was it like to work with the cast of "So Weird"? Was it fun?

    It was "so weird"... kidding. It was fun.

  14. Kevin, you have been someone I love to watch ever since you first started acting! You are such a good actor especially for someone who didn't take any classes. ell...my question is: What inspired you to first start acting, how did you prepare at such a young age?

    Thanks! I started out modeling. I was so young, my mom helped me with my lines. As for not taking classes, I find that on-the-job training and working on the set is ltimately the best class one can take.

  15. If you could live in any time period, which would it be? And, could you consider vacationing here in Puerto Rico?

    I'd have to say The 60s. "Make love not war." I'd love to visit Puerto Rico.

  16. Hey Kevin! I've been a fan of yours since "Air Bud" came out, and I was lucky enough to meet you at the 1999 Young Star Awards. I just wanted to ask you...if you could be in any band/group from ANY time (not just the 90's and now) what group would you be in?

    Thanks a bunch! I'd like to meet The Beatles and Ozzie Osborne.

  17. HI! I'm 14, and think you are sooooooooooooo hot! I have posters of you EVERYWHERE in my room! My question for you is, what do you look for in a girl? Personality? Charm? Grace? Beauty? What?

    All of the above, plus a sense of humor.

  18. What's Jack Wagner like? I've always admired him from afar. Has he given you any advice?

    Jack Wagner is a nut case. He's a great guy. I really like him. I like his unaffected attitude. He's cool.

  19. Kevin, you have an amazing smile. What things make you laugh and where are your ticklish spots?

    Funny stuff makes me laugh. I'm not ticklish... really, I'm not... for real :)

  20. Hey Kevin! You're totally awesome on "Titans"! I know you're working w/ Yasmine Bleeth now, but what was it like kissing her in "It Came From The Sky"?

    Katy.... It was any 14-year-old guy's dream.

  21. I'm a [NHL Toronto Maple] leaf fan too so I was wondering who's your favorite leaf?

    Mats Sundin and Curtis Joseph are my favorite players.

  22. If your house caught on fire, and you could only save one thing in your house, what would it be, and why?

    My Michael Jordan signed game basketball used in his last professional game.

  23. Hey Kevin! You seem like such a sweetheart! What's the sweetest thing
    anybody's ever done for you? What about the sweetest thing you've done for
    anyone else?

    My mom gave birth to me and I gave my parents company -- a fun-loving guy.

  24. Who do you think should have won the million on Survivor?

    The cute girl, COLLEEN.

  25. Hey Kevin! I heard that your nicknames are Keby and Ziggy. What do they mean and how did you get them?

    My younger sisters called me Keby when they couldn't talk very well and couldn't say my name. And all my friends call me Ziggy for Zegers.
