Trivia Edit

  • Brian is also a talented physical trainer, and his dedication to this profession frequently leads him toward playing the roles of warriors and other physically strong characters in his acting career. This is evidenced by his role as Ennis in Teen Wolf (as he was already an extremely powerful Werewolf even before becoming an Augmented Alpha) and his role as Carl Creel/Absorbing Man in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (in which he is able to take on the properties of any substance he touches and can use it to augment his strength and durability, such as taking on the properties of a diamond or a strong metal while in a battle).
