Five Things You Didn’t Know about Dane DeHaan

Dane DeHaan is an American actor who is best-known for his roles in movies. However, he has shown up in TV shows on more than one occasion, as shown by people who might recognize him as Jesse on Season 3 of HBO’s In Treatment.  Recently DeHaan played the lead role in the movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets that is scheduled to come out on July 21 in the United States but July 26 in France, which is the country where its source material comes from.

Here are five things that you may or may not have known about Dane DeHaan:

His Family Name Means Rooster

DeHaan has some English, German, Italian, Welsh, and Scot-Irish in his heritage. However, his family name comes from the Dutch part of his heritage. To be exact, it comes from the Middle Dutch hane, which means “rooster.” As a family name, it can mean either someone who either resembles a rooster or someone who lives in a house with the sign of a rooster.

Got Started Playing Superheroes

On one occasion, Dehaan stated that he got started as an actor by playing superheroes as a child. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that comic book movies hold a particular appeal for him, seeing as how they combine his interests as a child with his interests as an adult. Besides Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, he was also Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Has Played the Same Role as James Franco Not Once But Twice

So far, DeHaan has played the same role as James Franco not once but twice. The first time, he played Harry Osborn in 2014, while James Franco played the same character in 2002, 2004, and 2007. The second time, he played James Dean in 2015, while James Franco played the same person in 2001 and 2012.

Loves Golf

It is interesting to note that DeHaan is a huge fan of golf. In fact, he loves golf so much that he has stated that if he could be in the career of his choice, he would be a professional golfer rather than a professional actor. Unfortunately, DeHaan was never able to pursue that particular path because he was never good enough to get a real shot at it. However, he still golfs for purposes of rest and relaxation, seeing as how the sport serves as something of a meditation for him.

Recommends that Friends in Trouble See His Spouse

Amusingly, DeHaan has said that while he is there for friends who are in trouble, he is limited when it comes to what sort of help he can provide.  He says that he is good for telling others the truth, but he is not so good when it comes to providing interested individuals with the advice that they need to work through their problems. For working through problems, DeHaan suggests for people to approach his spouse Anna Wood, who is much better at that sort of thing.
