In a recent interview with PopEater, Dan, a fire-spinning flow artist, had wonderful things to say about his look-alike actor brother.

"It's wonderful to be mistaken for him.

"He's just awesome in every way that I pay attention to. I ask myself,  'Do I love him because he's my brother or is he really that awesome?' He's really, really awesome."

And as Joseph said about Dan, "So let's celebrate him, he's f***ing awesome."
