5. He’s a Mindful Guy

Dustin no doubt has a mindful approach to working through life challenges. Whenever he faces a difficult problem, he does the following, according to the Frank interview: “When I'm in a time of crisis or something like that – where there's a fork in the road ahead of me. I think “Okay. Here's this decision.” Then I think about what my six-year-old self would think of this decision, and my six-year-old self is, more often than not, the version of me who is noble, strong, kind, and does the right thing.”

6. Almost on Twilight

You remember Twilight, right? The show helped to kick off an entire slew of teen-vampire shows. Well, Dustin was almost on it. He auditioned for the role of Edward – but it never happened. The part went to none other than Robert Pattinson. As an aside, he did land a part on the CW’s Supernatural starring Jared Padalecki.
