1. He stars on Fox's sci-fi action thriller Minority Report

Stark Sands plays Dash, one of the "pre-cogs" whose predictions were used by the PreCrime division of law enforcement in the original Tom Cruise film to prevent murders before they happened. The series takes place 10 years after PreCrime ended, as Dash tries to navigate what it is to live in 2064 as a regular -- yet oddly gifted -- citizen.

7. He plays a twin on Minority Report, but is also one in real life!

On Minority Report, Dash and his twin brother Arthur (also Sands) both get partial visions of the future that don't make much sense on their own. In real life, Stark grew up with a twin brother Jacob who helped "act" in amateur video performances of the classic Mr. Men picture books at home with their older sister.
