!!Provides examples of:

* BillingDisplacement: Of a sort. He was listed in the main titles for the second half of ''Once Upon A Time'' season 1, although he was absent from three episodes and had only small scenes in a few others.
* BrilliantButLazy: Described himself as such in school. He got decent grades but didn't like doing homework.
* CarpetOfVirility: Sports this whenever he has a ShirtlessScene.
* DeadpanSnarker: Tends to play this type of character a lot. In interviews he comes across as TheQuietOne however.

* InnocentBlueEyes: They help to convey the 'heart of gold' part whenever he portrays a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

* LetsGetDangerous: In the ''Band of Brothers'' interviews, he seems like the last person you'd expect to take part in various on-set pranks. Then he confesses to trashing Tom Hardy's hotel room as a joke (he took part in said prank anyway).
* NiceGuy: ''Imagine This! TV'' was his own idea and features him and a crew helping with projects in various communities around the world.
* PermaStubble: Tends to sport it in some of his roles. Lampshaded in a ''OUAT'' episode where Regina says of August "you never shaved."
