In a whirlwind of surprise, Dan Benson, who previously played Zeke on Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place, shared his bewilderment on TikTok upon hearing about the series’s revival.

“Are you kidding me?” he exclaimed. The announcement aroused excitement and curiosity, considering his unconventional career shift from acting to adult content creation on OnlyFans.


The last thing Benson expected was for the series to get a revival over a decade later. 

“Oh boy what have I done?” he joked in the video shared online. 

“I waited like 13 years, jusrt waiting around… as soon as Dan becomes a p*** star let’s reboot Wizards again.”

13 Years Later: A Wizard’s Transformation

Benson then pondered the fate of Zeke’s character in the sequel. “Did they recast him? Is there going to be someone else playing [him]?”

The former Disney actor shared on TikTok how he “tripped and fell” into the world of adult online content. Threatened with leaked nudes, he decided to take control and ventured into a career that proved more lucrative than his acting residuals. 

“I look back fondly on my time as an actor, but I could not make a living to save my life. So, if you’re wondering why I got into adult entertainment, I basically couldn’t afford medicated food for my dog.”
