On Eerie, Indiana: The Other Dimension (1998), a spinoff of the homoromantic subtext classic that paired Stanley Hope (Daniel) and Mitchell Taylor (Bill Switzer) as teenage paranormal investigators in an alternate universe.
On I Was a Sixth Grade Alien (1999) as Tim Thompkins, who buddy-bonds with the purple-skinned alien boy (played by Ryan Cooley).
In Model Behavior (2000), as the little brother of a girl involved in a Prince and the Pauper-style switch.
Plus Are You Afraid of the Dark, Goosebumps, The Zack Files, and Darcy's Wild Life.
Degrassi: The Next Generation (2001-2008). He's assumed to be homophobic after he pushes the gay kid Marco, but he insists that he's not. At least he managed to display his increasingly buffed physique, with semi-nude and underwear shots nearly as impressive as those of his brother.
Daniel also managed to do some teen buddy-bonding, in the Australian slasher flick Left for Dead (also released as Devil's Night).
