    He's unafraid and unashamed of putting himself out there- even at a very young age.

    “His energy doesn’t impress me so much as I envy it,” Kasdan wrote. “It’s boundless and youthful and exuberant and hilarious and … it infuses that movie with life and electricity.”

    2. He understands what it means to be that lonely kid:

    3. He can play someone who isn't athletic (Peter Parker)

    "I want to puke. Take me somewhere."

    And he's a good friend.

    Here's a little on his bromance with Teen Wolf co-star Tyler Posey.

    Which matches the Marvel movie persona.

    "No sex for the sake of sex."
    He said no to filming a "full-tilt sex scene" because he felt it would be derailing from the episode's main plotline.

    9. He can play a diverse set of roles:
