Percy Jackson And Hoot
Logan earned a Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Feature Film by a Leading Young Actor for his performance in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and ruffled feathers with his role in Hoot, the 2006 movie about a group of kids trying to save a burrowing owl habitat from destruction. Logan also got the chance to work alongside Jim Carrey in a horror movie called The Number 23.
Working With Jim Carrey
“I heard they were making this [kwlink 2820Jim Carrey film[/kwlink], The Number 23, and I thought, 'I really want to be part of this. Jim Carrey is one of my favorite actors and I want to learn from him, I’m obsessed with Eternal Sunshine [of the Spotless Mind], and I really want to see how he does his job.' And I got the role and he found out that I was a huge fan of his. I’m not sure he knows how much it meant to me to sit down and talk to him or even watch him do a scene, but he was definitely the person who impacted me the most.”
