LOGAN LERMAN BIOGRAPHY


Logan Wade Lerman was born in Beverly Hills, California. His mother Lisa (Goldman), is his manager, and his father, Larry, is a businessman. He has two siblings, Lucas (a brother), and Lindsey (a sister). Logan and his family are Jewish.

Logan wanted to become an actor at an early age. So he told his mother of his desire to be an actor when he was 2 1/2 years old. At the age of 4, Logan had an agent and was booked for two commercials. His first appearance on the big screen was as William, the youngest son of Mel Gibson's character in The Patriot (2000). Also in 2000, he appeared with the same actor (Gibson), this time as the younger version of his character Nick Marshall, in What Women Want (2000). After a small role in 2001's Riding in Cars with Boys (2001), he starred in John Grisham's A Painted House (2003) (TV).

He played the younger version of Ashton Kutcher's character, Evan, in The Butterfly Effect (2004). After making his small screen debut in a guest-starring role in "10-8: Officers on Duty" (2003), he stared as Bobby (Robert) McCallister in the WB Network's series "Jack & Bobby" (2004), where he portrayed a teenager who will be a future president of the United States. After the show's cancellation in 2005, Logan returned to film, starring in the family adventure Hoot (2006). The next year, he played the son of Walter Sparrow (Jim Carrey) in the dark thriller The Number 23 (2007), and co-starred with Russell Crowe and Christian Bale in the well-reviewed Western remake 3:10 to Yuma (2007). His next two roles were playing a foul-mouthed private school student in the comedy Meet Bill (2007) and a younger version of actor George Hamilton in the period drama My One and Only (2009). Both were independent films that received limited releases. Also in 2009, Logan appeared with Gerard Butler in the R-rated action thriller Gamer (2009), as a teenager who controls Butler's character in a real-life video game.

In 2010, Logan played the title character in the fantasy adventure Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010), giving him notice among a wider audience. He will next star as D'Artagnan in a remake of The Three Musketeers (2011), and has signed on to star in The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012), a film adaptation of the 1999 book of the same name.

When Logan is not working, he likes to play soccer and baseball. He is an LA Lakers fan, and even though he plays mostly dramatic roles, he enjoys playing pranks on his friends.

Personal Quotes
[about his character in "Jack & Bobby" (2004)] "The kind of boy few people really understand. He's a bit of a misfit."

I'd much rather play sports with my free time. I also like watching classic movies and watching certain TV shows, like "The Simpsons" (1989). I'm a big basketball fan too. That would be my sport of choice.

[Portraying a geek is] "Fun. I'm not the kind of guy kids picked on in school, but I've seen it happen. I've never really given much thought to being cool. I don't really think about it one way or the other."

I'm not the kind of guy who got into this to be famous.

The best thing about this is being able to learn from, and act with, your heroes.

I just don't want to repeat the same thing over and over again, so I'm always looking for something that's going to be challenging and make me nervous every time I start a project.

I'm from Los Angeles and acting was accessible. There's always a place to wait in line for an audition and I kind of begged my parents to take me. My mom nurtured my career and helped me climb the ladder. I have had a passion for movies from a young age. I first got interested in acting when I was probably four or five.
