Some of his other film credits include starring roles in My Best Friends’ Girl opposite Kate Hudson, Dan In Real Life opposite Steve Carrell and Mr. Brooks opposite Kevin Costner.
The kids love him: Dane recently reprised his role as the voice of “Dusty” in Disney’s animated film Planes: Fire & Rescue, the sequel to Planes, which grossed over $219 million.
