But here are a few fun facts that only the most die-hard of Buddy fans would have known before:
- He appeared in a music video for New York dance band Dangerous Muse for the song "The Rejection." Brandon was initially picked for the part of a boy who rejects a girl because he's interested in boys, but at the last minute, the director brought in a friend to do the scene. You can still catch a glimpse of a shirtless Buddy changing in a locker room scene, though.
- Because of his stepfather's job, most of Buddy's childhood was spent relocating from city to city, including a move to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, the hometown of co-star Forbes March (Nash Brennan).
- Enjoys playing football and baseball, and hanging out with co-stars in his spare time.
