When you look at 21-year-old actor Logan Lerman, it’s hard not to have Michael Jackson’s ‘Pretty Young Thing’ pop into your head. (Go ahead. Try it. We’ll wait right here.)
You probably recognize Logan Lerman from a ton of movies — the young actor is a rising star, and is finally starting to be taken seriously thanks to his role in last year’s ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower,’ in which he played depressed protagonist Charlie, whose new school friends help save his life.
Makes you want to grab the tissues already, right?
He’s also the star of the ‘Percy Jackson’ movies, based on the young adult novels, which are like Harry Potter, but with Greek mythology. The newest film, ‘Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters,’ hits theaters this August.
Lerman got his start as a kid acting with Mel Gibson in both ‘The Patriot’ and ‘What Women Want,’ and has appeared in films like ‘Gamer,’ ‘The Three Musketeers,’ and the upcoming epic ‘Noah,’ from acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky.
In his downtime, Lerman plays music (piano, guitar), and toys around for fun in a band with his former ‘Jack and Bobby’ co-star Dean Collins. Lerman says his band isn’t serious, but he does have one serious aspiration: to be the head of a movie studio someday.
We’re good with that. Have you seen the dudes in charge of making movies? They could use a hot guy like Lerman around to improve the scenery.
