Numerous guest roles, primarily in sitcoms followed, including recurring parts on ABC's "Full House" and The WB's "The Parent 'Hood". After his auspicious film debut, he all but stole "Kindergarten Cop" (1990) from Arnold Schwarzenegger and went on to play Danny De Vito's son in "Jack the Bear" (1993) and Chevy Chase's kid in "Cops and Robbersons" (1994). In "Wes Craven's New Nightmare" (also 1994), Hughes was cast as the onscreen son of Heather Langenkamp in that reflexive take on the "Nightmare From Elm Street" series. He has twice played the child of actress Kathleen Quinlan, in "Apollo 13" (1995) and "Zeus and Roxanne" (1997). Hughes had his biggest screen role to date...
