2. His snacking habits are unusual to say the least. "One of my favorite snacks is a plain bagel with cream cheese and hot sauce," he revealed to Sweety High. We've never tried something so bold, but you know we're all for trying unique and delicious foods here.

3. His dog Dart has one green and one blue eye. They're perfect together. He even brings him on set sometimes. Can you say BFF goals?

4. He adores Whoopie Goldberg. "She was one of my favorite people I've ever met and even sent me an incredibly kind email after the first time I was on the view for Teen Beach Movie," he shared. This gives us all the feels for so many reasons, but we think only two words are necessary: Sister Act.

5. He thrives in the rain. When it does, he "always look for puddles to jump in no matter what."

7. He's a major Harry Potter fan. Remember those kids you used to see dressed up outside the movie premieres? He was one of them. We do confess, it's a good look for him. ????
