Logan Wade's Lerman (born January 19, 1992) is an actor from the United States. He is best known for his role as Percy Jackson in the fantasy adventure films. In the mid-1990s, he appeared in commercials before starring in the television series Jack & Bobby (2004-2005) and the films The Butterfly Effect (2004) and Hoot (2006). Lerman rose to prominence after appearing in the western 3:10 to Yuma, the thriller The Number 23, the comedy Meet Bill, and the 2009 films Gamer and My One and Only. He went on to play d'Artagnan in 2011's The Three Musketeers, as well as roles in the coming-of-age dramas The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012), Indignation (2016), and The Vanishing of Sidney Hall (2017), as well as major roles in the 2014 films Noah and Fury. He returned to television in 2020 with the series Hunters.
Early life and family history
Lerman was born in the California town of Beverly Hills. Lisa (née Goldman), his mother, works as his manager, and his father, Larry Lerman, is a businessman and orthotist. He has two older siblings: an older sister and an older brother.
Lerman is Jewish and recently celebrated his Bar Mitzvah. His grandparents were born in four countries. Max Lerman, his paternal grandfather, was born in Berlin in 1927 to a Polish Jewish family; they fled Germany in the 1930s due to the Nazi regime and lived in Shanghai until World War II ended. Mina (Schwartz), his paternal grandmother, was born in Mexico City to Russian Jewish parents. His maternal grandfather was a Jewish immigrant from Poland, and his maternal grandmother was born in Los Angeles to a Jewish immigrant family as well. By marriage, he is related to twin singers Evan and Jaron Lowenstein on his mother's side.
Lerman has stated that he is the "black sheep" of his family because he is an actor and the majority of his relatives are doctors. His family owns and operates an orthotics and prosthetics company that his great-grandfather founded in 1915. He graduated from Beverly Hills High School. He applied to New York University to study creative writing in 2010, but he did not attend.
Career as an actor
Lerman had a passion for movies from a young age, though he started acting "just for fun" and "to do something to get out of school". In the late 1990s, he began auditioning for roles and first appeared in commercials. In the 2000 film The Patriot, he played William Martin, one of the lead character's children. He appeared in What Women Want the same year. He portrayed the main character's son in the 2001 film Riding in Cars with Boys. Lerman has stated that while appearing in his earliest roles as a child, he did not have "any conscious awareness of what I was doing or what was going on" and "didn't have a good experience".
In February 2010, Lerman attended the premiere of Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
Lerman portrayed nine-year-old Luke Chandler in the CBS made-for-television film A Painted House, which was based on author John Grisham's early life and was set in Black Oak, Arkansas in the early 1950s. In 2002, A Painted House was shot in Lepanto and Clarksdale, Mississippi. Lerman was described as a "promising newcomer" by the Boston Globe, and the character was "quietly and effectively played" by the Telegraph-Herald. He was nominated for a Young Artist Award for Best Performance by a Leading Young Actor in a Television Production for the role, and he shared the award with Calum Worthy. He then appeared in the 2004 thriller film The Butterfly Effect, playing a seven-year-old Evan Treborn. Lerman was described as "definitely a child actor to watch" by digitallyOBSESSED's reviewer.
Lerman had quit acting for a "year or so" when he was ten, in the early 2000s. When he was twelve, he made a "conscious decision" to pursue acting as a career after developing an interest in the filmmaking process. In 2004, he was cast as one of the title characters in the television series Jack & Bobby, Robert "Bobby" McCallister, a 12-year-old "extremely bright social misfit" in Missouri who was destined to become President of the United States as an adult. The show aired on The WB Television Network during the 2004-2005 season, receiving mixed reviews and low ratings before being canceled. Lerman was nominated for another Young Artist Award for his performance, which he shared with Jack DeSena. Lerman has stated that after appearing on the show, he "began taking things seriously" in terms of his career. Lerman's performance was described as a "blend of vulnerability and strength" by the Boston Herald, and "Lerman lends Bobby a bedraggled optimism" by Entertainment Weekly.
Lerman continued his film career by starring as Roy Eberhardt in the children's adventure Hoot; his character moves to Florida from Montana and attempts to save endangered burrowing owls. According to Lerman, the film's message is "that you can be any age and make a difference." Hoot began filming in South Florida in July 2005 and premiered on May 5, 2006, earning him his third Young Artist Award, this time for Best Performance in a Feature Film - Leading Young Actor (2007). The Washington Post reviewer noted that "Lerman shows some life as Roy," though his role was "an anomaly in a sea of insipidity," whereas the San Francisco Chronicle reviewer panned Lerman's performance.
In May 2012, Lerman was on the set of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
In 2007, Lerman starred in the thriller The Number 23, playing the son of Walter Sparrow, a man obsessed with numerology. That same year, he starred in the critically acclaimed western remake 3:10 to Yuma as William Evans, a teen who idolizes criminal Ben Wade while rejecting his father; Lerman's character did not exist in the original version of the story. Lerman's work was well received, and he was nominated for a Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Feature Film - Leading Young Actor once more (2008). It was his second year in a row receiving a nomination in that category, but he did not win. According to USA Today, he is one of the film's "best supporting players," while Rolling Stone gives him a "shout-out" and Newsday says he delivers a "credibly explicit note."
Lerman co-starred in the 2008 comedy Meet Bill as a teen mentored by Bill. Meet Bill was shot in 2006, premiered at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival, and was released in theaters on April 4, 2008. Lerman "displays a supreme confidence" in the film, according to Hollywood.com. In 2009, he starred as Simon, a teen gamer who controls one of the characters in a video game involving live human subjects, in the science fiction film Gamer. Also that year, Lerman starred in the comedy My One and Only, playing a teenage character based on actor George Hamilton, who is depicted as an aspiring writer who, after his parents divorce, travels across the country with his mother and brother, eventually arriving in Hollywood. The character "captures the ease with which an angry teen will use a growing vocabulary to wound a parent," according to Betsy Sharkey of the Los Angeles Times.
Percy Jackson will make an appearance.
In July 2013, Lerman
Lerman was cast as Percy Jackson in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief in the spring of 2009. The film was shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2009, and was released in February 2010. Lerman has stated that when he received the script, he was unfamiliar with the book series. Before college, Lerman and his family saw his acting work as a "hobby"; his parents only became more comfortable with acting as a career in 2010, the year Percy Jackson was released. Lerman appeared in "Change the Odds," a public service announcement video for the Stand Up to Cancer charity, in August 2010.
Lerman's next role was that of d'Artagnan in Paul W. S. Anderson's 3D film adaptation of The Three Musketeers, which was released in the United States on October 21, 2011. Without having to audition, Lerman was cast in the role. He accepted the part because The Three Musketeers was one of the few books his paternal grandfather took with him when he "had to leave his home... as a young kid" in the 1930s. To play d'Artagnan, Lerman trained in sword fighting for three months and wore hair extensions. The film received negative reviews, with Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune writing that "Lerman already has done solid work... but he's a blank slate here".
Lerman played Charlie in a film adaptation of Stephen Chbosky's novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower; filming began in 2011, and the film was released in September 2012. Lerman has described the film as a "life epic", and stated that he had been "torturing [himself] for... a few months in order to get inside Charlie's head". The film, as well as Lerman's performance, received positive reviews. Leonard Maltin said Lerman and his co-stars are "soulful" and "lift this film above the norm for coming-of-age stories," while Christy Lemire of the Associated Press said Lerman "bust out, show some range, and reveal he can really, truly act" by the film's end. Lerman was nominated for several awards for his performance, including Best Young Actor/Actress by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Actor: Drama.
Lerman portrayed Lou in the independent drama film Stuck in Love, which had a limited release in the United States in 2013. Lerman was originally set to appear in three Percy Jackson films. Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, the second film in the series, was released in August 2013, but no further films in the series have been produced since.
Lerman portrayed Ham, the son of the prophet Noah, in Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic Noah. Noah was released on March 28, 2014, to positive reviews, after filming in New York and Iceland in 2012. Lerman then starred in David Ayer's World War II drama Fury, in which he plays an American soldier fighting Nazi forces. Filming began in September 2013, and the film was released in October 2014. Reviews for Fury were positive; Matt Stieb of the San Antonio Current wrote that Lerman "manages to hold his own" opposite co-star Brad Pitt, and Lerman's performance was described as a "great turn" by Oliver Lyttelton of Indiewire.
In October 2014, Lerman attended the world premiere of Fury.
Lerman starred as Marcus Messner in Indignation, a James Schamus-directed adaptation of Philip Roth's 2008 novel of the same name; his character is a student who faces antisemitism and sexual repression while growing up at a 1950s Ohio college. The production began in June of 2015. Indignation premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and was released theatrically in July of that year. It received positive reviews for both the film and Lerman's performance, with ScreenDaily's Tim Grierson writing that Lerman's work "seethes with his character's burgeoning arrogance and cynicism" and The Hollywood Reporter's David Rooney writing that Lerman gives "a performance of tremendous focus, maturity, and depth of feeling, with exciting flashes of the umbrage that gives the film its title." Lerman was also one of the film's executive producers, his first such credit.
Shawn Christensen's feature drama The Vanishing of Sidney Hall starred Lerman as Sidney Hall (2017). He was also an executive producer on the film, which began production in April 2016 in New York City and premiered on January 25, 2017 at the Sundance Film Festival.
In Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero, an animated film released on April 13, 2018, Lerman voiced Robert Conroy, a real-life soldier who worked with World War I hero war dog Sergeant Stubby.
Lerman signed on to play the lead role of Jonah Heidelbaum in the Amazon Video series Hunters, which is about a group of Nazi hunters in the 1970s. The show will debut in February 2020. End of Sentence, in which he plays an ex-convict who travels to Ireland with his father, and Shirley, about author Shirley Jackson, in which he plays one half of a young couple staying at Jackson's unstable household, were both released in mid-2020.
From January 2011 to September 2017, Lerman was represented by Creative Artists Agency before signing with William Morris Endeavor.
Since 2020, Lerman has starred in the Amazon Prime series Hunters. He played a character in the biographical drama Shirley (2020). Lerman and Jonathan Schwartz were announced as executive producers for the upcoming Sam Taylor-Johnson film Rothko in March 2021.
Lerman and his producing partner Jonathan Schwartz co-produced the drama Press Play (2022). He also appeared in the action-thriller Bullet Train that year.
Lerman is friends with actor Dean Collins, who played his best friend on Jack & Bobby; they remained close after the series ended and worked together again on Hoot, in which Collins had a supporting role. In their spare time, the two made comedic short films together. In addition to acting, they wrote, directed, and shot the videos, often with the assistance of family and friends. The videos were uploaded to YouTube under the username "monkeynuts1069."
Collins and Lerman formed Indigo with musician Daniel Pashman in 2006; Collins sang lead vocals, Lerman played keyboard and guitar, and Pashman played drums. Lerman stated in 2011 that Indigo is "not a serious band right now," and that music is his second greatest passion after film. He enjoys movie music compositions and plays the piano. Lerman also writes and creates story loglines.
Lerman "aspires to be the head of a [film] studio one day," according to BlackBook magazine.
Lerman is a self-described "film geek", and has said that he is "shaped by movies", and that he is a "creative person". He has expressed a desire to be involved in "everything that goes into making a film," including writing, producing, and directing. His favorite directors include Paul Thomas Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, David Fincher, and Peter Bogdanovich, and among his favorite films are American Beauty, Defending Your Life, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Lerman describes himself as "reserved and quiet," "a homebody," and "not a big sports fan."
