Identify the actor in this Southwest Airlines commercial

Help me impress my 14-year-old daughter (for once). Who is the young actor portraying the college student in this Southwest Airlines commercial? She thinks he might have been in one of the Harry Potter movies.

I think she thinks he's cute, but she's not saying.

I've watched the Harry Potter movies enough times to choke a horse. Kid is definitely not from the Harry Potter movies.

Your daughter thinks he might be from Harry Potter because he looks a bit like a young David Tennant, who played Barty Crouch Jr. in Goblet of Fire.

No idea who the actor actually is, sorry.

If she thinks he's cute you should give your daughter some Doctor Who DVDs and some alone time.

He looks a little like the actor who played Neville (Matthew Lewis).

Response by poster: Yeah, she's already a huge Doctor Who fan. This whole thing came up because she thinks he looks like David Tennant (though Matt Smith is "her doctor").

Best answer: Pretty sure that actor is Jake Thomas, who played Lizzie McGuire's little brother.

Thank you, brain, for being able to recall that face after a solid 14 years. (His teeth gave it away)
