Logan Lerman and Lily Collins are part of Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood Class of 2010. The teen stars have some amazing projects lined up for the 2010/2011 movie year:
Collins, who first got your attention in The Blind Side, has been filming Abduction with Taylor Lautner. She is also in the upcoming film, Priest with Cam Gigandet (my personal favorite ex-Twilight cast member.)
Lerman gets to go back to school with Emma Watson in the Perks of Being a Wallflower and is D’Artagnan in The Three Musketeers 3-D.
Check out the video that features Lily, Logan and other young stars below.

Logan Lerman’s latest movie, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief is doing well at the box office and the actor is rumored to be the new Spider Man in the upcoming reboot of the successful franchise, so what did M magazine ask him about? His celebrity crush of course!
“My dream girl is Rachel McAdams. I saw her in a restaurant once and it was the first time I’ve actually frozen up around a girl. I couldn’t even look in the direction of where she was sitting! I’m a huge fan of hers.”

The search for the next Peter Parker is over. According to The Cineman Source, Logan Lerman has been tapped to play the awkward teen bitten by a radioactive spider who develops superpowers and becomes the crime fighting Spider-man.
The role was widely sought after and lots of stars had been rumored to take on the action franchise, including Kellan Lutz, Chace Crawford, Daniel Radcliffe and Zac Efron. The director of (500) Days of Summer, Marc Webb is planning on this film being 3-D with the technology from James Cameron’s film Avatar.
Assuming this is true: Who should play his sweetheart, Mary Jane Watson?
Selena Gomez? Demi Lovato? Emma Watson? Tell us who you’d like to see Logan paired with.

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?

Logan Lerman, who plays the title role in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief is set to take on mythological creatures big and small in the upcoming movie. As Percy, he is beset by troubles every year at school until he learns why – he is a half-blood hero, son of Poseidon, one of the gods of Mount Olympus. Being set up as a thief of Zeus’ powerful lightning bolt, Percy and his friends Grover (Brandon T. Jackson) and Annabeth, (Alexandra Daddario) travel across the country to clear his name and avoid a war between the Greek gods. Unfortunately for them, monsters line up to try and thwart his quest. This movie featurette gives us a glimpse at some of the battles Percy and The Gang will face.
The books by Rick Riordan are great! The movie looks fantastic. Chris Columbus is directing (Harry Potter 1 and 2) and has Pierce Brosnan as the centaur, Chiron and Uma Thurman as Medusa. I can’t wait to check it February 12, 2010.
