Logan Lerman is getting used to Daniel Radcliffe comparisons. The actor is the star of Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief due in theaters in February, and the similarities to Radcliffe’s popular role (the title character to a very popular series of hero quest books turned into films,) Lerman is trying to differentiate the two:
“I’m being compared to Daniel Radcliffe a lot these days,” says Lerman. “Honestly, my character doesn’t have much in common with Harry Potter besides the fact that he’s an unlikely hero who’s thrown into a huge situation.”
The actor, who is costarring with some of Hollywood’s biggest talent (Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman) says he is focused on his character but would be up for the massive fame that is potential with this movie.
“I’ve been studying mythology for months, reading about Perseus, Poseidon, Apollo, Medusa,” Logan says. “I don’t know if the movie will reach Twilight levels of obsession, but if it does, I’m ready for it!”
I hope this movie does well. The books are enjoyable and the trailer looks like it will do justice to the novels by Rick Riordan.
The movie hits theaters February 12, 2010. Anyone else looking forward to this?
