Expect to see Austin on Secret Life next season, but in the meantime, you can catch him alongside Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd in Dolphin Tale — you know that inspirational movie, based on a true story, about a mutated dolphin who’s half-robot?
So, now that Austin has made it to the big-screen, what’s next?
“I did another film this summer called AWOL," he tells Courant.
“I play a soldier in Vietnam who gets a Dear John letter and a week of R & R on the same day. He decides to go back to the States to rekindle the love with his girlfriend, and at the same time he's avoiding the police. It's a decision for him between fulfilling his duty as a soldier and following his heart. It's the lead role.”
