Fans on Twitter and TikTok were absolutely in love with Dylan's new haircut.

But that's not the only thing they've been loving from him lately. The actor showed off his trendy dance skills in a TikTok video on Aug. 7, alongside a group of friends that included The Handmaid's Tale's Max Minghella. In the video taken before he dyed his hair blonde, the 29-year-old star danced in a purple Mickey Mouse T-shirt.
