The 12-year-old Percy Jackson isn't just the Medusa-fighting son of Poseidon. He also struggles with dyslexia and ADHD. These character struggles were the main reason Potter director, Chris Columbus wanted to bring Percy to the big screen, he tells io9.
We hit up Poseidon himself, Kevin McKidd, from the Percy Jackson and The Olympians film, and quizzed him about bringing the fantasy books to life. We also gave him a complex about the sexiest of the cloven-hoofed beasts: the centaurs.
News broke yesterday that Logan Lerman was one of the actors being considered for Peter Parker in Sony's Spidey reboot. We caught up with Lerman at the Lightning Thief premiere and tried tapping into his Spidey senses.
The trailer for The Lightning Thief film adaptation is out, and challenging wizards and sparkly vampires to a sexy magical hairstyle-off. The new kid's advantage: he's related to Gods. Check out the first look at Percy Jackson's Olympus.
