In Young Blood, he is at FilmFridayz and asks if they have an idea.

In Hurts Like Heaven, he is walking with his friends in the hall and discussing the party at Jeremy's that night. He then bets that Caylee and Liam have sex that night since someone has to screw for the party to be a rager. At the party, he is laughing at a drunk Jeremy.

In 21 Guns (1), he is at Jamie and Jeremy's housewarming party and tells Tim to fuck off when he tries to sell him weed.

In If I Lose Myself, he along with a bunch of his other guy friends plan to cheer Jeremy up after a fight with Jamie by taking him to a strip club.
