  • Name's the Same: He's starred in two different movies where he played two different characters who both share the name Max.
  • Playing Against Type: His role on Degrassi is alot more dark and intense contrast from his role on The Latest Buzz as more funny and laid back.
  • What Could Have Been: His character Eli was originally supposed to be killed off in the tenth season of Degrassi. In part 2 of All Falls Down, Fitz was originally supposed to stab Eli to death at Vegas Night, but the writers thought that idea was too similar to the Season 6's Rock This Town where JT was stabbed to death by one of the Lakehurst kids. Then the writers decided that he would die in the Season 10 finale Drop The World where he drives completely insane on the road while on the phone with Clare. He would get into a car accident and he would be pronounced dead, but then they start to realize how popular Eli has become in the fandom and since he's become more of a Breakout Character, they changed their minds and decided not to let him die on the show.
    • Before auditioning for Eli, Munro originally auditioned for the role of Drew, but lost out to his best friend Luke Bilyk. He then finally auditioned for the role of Eli. He nailed it and got the role that became one of the most popular characters on Degrassi.
    • There was actually an unaired Spin-Off series of The Latest Buzz called Meet The Wilders. If that show would've gone through, Munro wouldn't gone off to do Degrassi.
