Here is what the 28-year-old Baby Daddy actor had to share with the mag:
On his dream role: “I want to play a superhero. That was why I came to Hollywood. When Marvel started making movies I wanted to be part of that. I’m really excited about the next move and I hope I get the opportunity to wear a cape! It’s every boy’s dream. And I can’t wait to do it.”
On his diet: “I have type one diabetes so I have to be careful about what I eat and I have to stay healthy. I found out when I was three. It’s an extra responsibility. It was hard growing up without being irresponsible with myself and my health, but it taught me a valuable lesson about staying healthy.”
On people trying to whip his shirt off in public: “My TV mom Melissa Peterman is terrible. Whenever we are doing interviews or after we’ve finished taping the show she is always trying to get me to take my clothes off in front of people. People do ask, but if I’m at a bar or at the market then the answer is usually no.”
