Does He Have a Dreamy Accent? Uh … sometimes he slips into a Boston accent, which is made attractive by the fact that it's coming out of his mouth.

Is He Single? Yes, which means we're all still in with a chance. (Hey, a girl can dream!) One famous fan? Lizzo! The singer slid into his DMs over the summer, sparking hilarious back-and-forth banter that ended with the Grammy winner joking she was expecting a "little America" with the actor.

"Hi! Just heard about our little bundle of joy my mother will be so happy lol," he teased in reply. "(Just promise me no gender reveal parties lol)."

Does He Like Dogs? Yes, in fact, he and his dog Dodger are basically the sweetest human-animal pairing we've ever seen in this world. To advocate for adoption on National Rescue Dog Day in May, the Don't Look Up star even shared a video of the first time they met.

Oh, and Dodger is named after the Artful Dodger from Oliver, just in case you weren't already swooning.

Does He Look Equally Hot with a Beard? You bet he does.
