Logayn Lustman
Today, my favourite youngest actor, Logan Lerman, turns 22.
Whishing him all the best for a fabulous future ahead of him, and may he highly succeed in his further endeavours.

Meet Bill (2007)

Meet Bill (2007)

I discovered him back in early 2009, when I watched Meet Bill (2007). Almost instantaneously I was a fan of his. He was a superb actor. If another kid played that part in this movie, he (the character that is) might not have been that likable. But Logan Lerman, makes this; smart assed, weed smoking, rebellious teenager; with a twisted penchant for women’s underwear and a vocabulary full of swear word; really likable. In the end though, this adorable kid ends up helping the lead character, Bill (played superbly by Aaron Eckhart) battle his mid-life crisis demons.
It’s after watching this movie, I realised, I have actually seen him in many a movies as a child star. I just didn’t know him back then. He had starred in The Patriot (2000), What Women Want (2000), Riding in Cars with Boys (2001), and The Butterfly Effect (2004). I don’t remember him in any of these, for I watched them long time ago. Except for maybe in The Butterfly Effect, I have a vague memory of the younger Ashton Kutcher (who played the lead), for the kid had a pretty prominent role in it, and I watched it back in 2005. Thus not that long before I saw Meet Bill.

3:10 To Yuma (2007)

3:10 To Yuma (2007)

Post Meet Bill, I have seen many a movies starring young Mr. Lerman. From the excellent remake of a classic, that was, 3:10 to Yuma (2007); to the movie loosely based on actor George Hamilton’s trip with his mother and brother to Hollywood in the 50’s, where Lerman played the young George Hamilton, in My One and Only (2009); to the pathetic waste of time, that was Gamer (2009), of which the only saving grace was, Michael C. Hall’s superb portrayal of the villainous character; to the child friendly ‘Oky Doky’ fantasy film that was, Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief (2010).

Post that am yet to see any of his more recent films. Am really keen on watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) and Stuck in Love (2012).

And again whishing this adorable actor, all the best for a bright future.
