Scott met Dan earlier in high school, though it wasn't for several years that they would make a film together. On March 24, 2016, Dan was in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, the series' intended final installment. He was initially said to be playing a villain, though his character wound up being more of an antihero. Dan went on to play Rasputin in the film, and began filming his scenes on May 17. He finished filming on June 9, the last day of filming for the project. The film served as Dan's acting debut; unlike many of Scott's new actors, Dan's first role was a major one.
In early 2017, Dan took up a hobby of creating vlogs on his YouTube channel, and he continues to do so. On March 21, he was confirmed to be returning as Rasputin in Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass Consumption. He began filming his scenes on May 16. On June 5, Dan was cast as an unrevealed antagonist in the film, who was originally set to be played by Ryan Grier. Ryan had stopped showing up to filming, and Scott chose Dan to take over the part, namely for his physique and use of hand motions while acting. He finished filming his scenes on July 20, and the film was released in August.
Due to having other obligations, Dan hasn't been able to participate in any films outside of the Bread's Crumbs series as of now, though Scott is certainly open to collaborating with him more.
In February 2018, Dan was approached to take on a role in Scott's upcoming short film, No More Smiling. He has yet to be officially cast in the project.
