Logan Lerman

Logan Lerman made his feature film debut playing William, Mel Gibson's youngest son, in The Patriot, for which he shared a Young Artist Award nomination for Best Ensemble, from the non-profit Young Artist Foundation. After reuniting with Gibson (playing the actor as a young boy) in the hit comedy, What Women Want, Lerman co-starred in Penny Marshall's Riding in Cars With Boys.

That performance caught the attention of the producers of the CBS Hallmark Hall of Fame television movie A Painted House (based on John Grisham's novel), and they cast Lerman in the starring role, resulting in his first Young Artists Award, this time for Leading Young Actor in a TV Movie/Miniseries/Special. He next returned to the big screen, winning critical acclaim opposite Ashton Kutcher, in The Butterfly Effect.

He followed this triumph with his television series debut as Bobby McCallister, a bright young boy with a big heart who desperately tries to keep the peace between his mother and his older brother Jack, in The WB's critically-acclaimed series, Jack & Bobby. For his performance in the short-lived drama, Lerman won his second Young Artist Award as Leading Young Actor/TV Series.

He returned to the big screen, winning a fourth Young Artists nomination for his starring role in Hoot, the film adaptation of Carl Hiaasen's long-running New York Times children's bestseller. Lerman next co-starred opposite Jim Carrey and Virginia Madsen in Joel Schumacher's thriller The Number 23 before sharing the screen with two of the industry's most respected performers, Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, in James Mangold's well-received remake of the 1957 western, 3:10 to Yuma. For his work in the film, Logan was part of the cast ensemble nomination for the prestigious SAG Award™ while also collecting his fifth Young Artists nod.

More recently, he has graced the movie screen with performances in Bill with Aaron Eckhart, Jessica Alba and Elizabeth Banks, and starred in two diverse projects -- the period comedy My One and Only with Renée Zellweger, Chris Noth and Kevin Bacon, and the sci-fi thriller Gamer, alongside Gerard Butler.

Born and raised in Beverly Hills, California (where he still resides with his family), Lerman's desire to act was ignited after seeing a Jackie Chan movie at age 2 1/2. After announcing to his mother that he was going to be an actor, the toddler soon landed an agent and booked two commercials back-to-back, earning his SAG card in the process.
