Rising Actors Under 25: Logan Lerman
“Under 25” chronicles young, upcoming actors that you should be watching.
Logan Lerman, 20
The Beverly Hills born actor has starred in films alongside Orlando Bloom, Christian Bale, Gerard Butler and Russell Crowe. He entered the business at an early age, and at 20, his hefty resume continues to grow. He’s played a punk teenager in thriller Gamer all the way to a young action hero in the Percy Jackson series.
Where He Started: Lerman’s career launched after his portrayal of Bobby McCallister, a young boy who would be elected president in 2048 in the WB’s Jack & Bobby. This 2003 series lasted only one season, but the on-screen relationship between Lerman, Matt Long (Jack McCallister) and Christine Lahti (Grace McCallister) made a short-lived show one of the most memorable. Bobby McCallister could have been a lackluster character. He’s by no means outlandish or angsty. But Lerman’s dynamic performance made an introverted boy the brightest star.
What’s Next: Catch him alongside Harry Potter alum Emma Watson in the upcoming film The Perks of Being a Wallflower. He plays shy and awkward Charlie who navigates high school in the 90s.
