At “Heard & Scene,” we’re often asked whatâand whoâmay be about to burst on to the scene. Each Monday, we’ll highlight the people, places and things crossing our radar screen.
Logan Lerman, the 20-year-old star of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” began acting because he wanted to begin directing.
Â ”The first movie that really grabbed me was ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,’” he recalled. “That is when I got passionate about filmmaking.”
A student at Beverly Hills High School, Mr. Lerman shot to fame as the star of “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” in addition to acting in a string of indie films like “My One and Only,” with RenĂŠe Zellweger, and “Gamer,” with Gerard Butler. But “I really wanted to get behind the camera,” he said, during a recent interview. “I got into acting at 12 to spent time on sets and to learn about the industry.”
Now Mr. Lerman is appearing in “Perks,” a long-anticipated adaptation of a book with the same title that’s developed a cultlike fan-base of adolescent misfits since its publication in 1999. The film is written and directed by the book’s author, Stephen Chbosky, with whom Mr. Lerman quickly formed a friendship.
Mr. Lerman said the book was “really popular in [his] high school,” though he actually didn’t read it until after “falling in love with the script.” The movie had its premiere in New York last week at the Crosby Street Hotel, and was celebrated at a party thrown by the Cinema Society, where Mr. Lerman had a circle of fans and photographers around him.
Despite the high anticipation, he tends to answer questions in a calm and straightforward tone. Do the “Perks” fans make him nervous? “Not really,” he said. “It was stressful enough just trying to do justice to the material. I didn’t think about any extra pressure.” Working with “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson? “Awesome! The script has some intense stuff going on, but the cast is young and had fun and became tight right away.”
Mr. Lerman is now spending his first-ever couple of weeks in New York, filming a retelling of the Noah’s Ark story, directed by Darren Aronofsky, of “Black Swan” fame. He plays “a friend of Noah’s” in the film, he said.
“I’m afraid to say too much about it,” he added, after mentioning that the film had also been shot in Iceland. Mr. Aronofsky is one of the many filmmakers the young actor admiresâothers include David Fincher and “young, new ones” like Xavier Dolan, who he recently met at the Toronto Film Festival.
“I’m fascinated by how the great ones can dictate their visions so clearly,” he said.
So will he ever end up writing scripts and shooting scenes?
“I do a little bit of writing but my confidence in my writing has gotten away from me a little bit,” he said. Which is fine, for now. “It’s really weird: I started acting as a hobby, and I’ve managed. Now it’s a profession.”

What is it about the Smiths that makes the melancholic 80s band something of a Bat Signal for cultured and cute vintage-wearing dream girls? In writer-director Stephen Chboskyâs newÂ The Perks of Being a Wallflower,Â a wonderful film based on Chboskyâs own novel, the pixieish, Smiths-adoring love interest, Sam, is played by Emma Watson, in her first significant post-Hermione role. Samâs suitor, Charlie, is played by Logan Lerman. Perhaps inevitably, he is a clinically depressed introvert who befriends Sam and her punky stepbrother, Patrickâthe inestimable Ezra Millerâat a high-school football game. Charlie and Sam soon reveal their shared love of British glum-pop, including the Smithsâ âAsleep,â which is ironic, or appropriate, because the film details how Charlie finally wakes up thanks to Samâs tender, nonjudgmental companionship. The metaphor is not as heavy-handed as it sounds.
If Hollywood were a high-school cafeteriaâa tremendous stretch of the imagination!âthe three young leads would most certainly sit at the center of the cool table. Watson and Lerman will next star in Darren Aronofskyâs big-screen adaptation of Genesis chapters 6 to 9,Â Noah,Â while Miller will play opposite Mia Wasikowska inÂ Madame Bovary,Â providing an even greater service to teenagers than showcasing the triumph of the loner: giving them a way around readingMadame Bovary.

Logan Lermanâs 2007 trip to theÂ Toronto International Film FestivalÂ ended with the then-unknown 15-year-old transformed into a rising star, thanks to the debut of his film â3:10 to Yumaâ at number one that weekend. Back at the fest with the ensemble drama âWritersâ and the eagerly-anticipated adaptation of beloved young adult novel âThe Perks of Being a Wallflower,â Lerman is bracing for a repeat experience.
âIt was kind of weird that first time; I was so overwhelmed,â Lerman says. âIâm older now.â
Lerman is only 20, but heâs packed a lot of work into the last five years, headlining big-budget blockbusters âPercy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thiefâ and the latest remake of âThe Three Musketeers.â Toronto is just a jaunt between filming the sequel âPercy Jackson: Sea of Monstersâ and shooting Darren Aronofskyâs âNoah,â starring Lermanâs â3:10 to Yumaâ co-star Russell Crowe. Lermanâs schedule makes it clear: Heâs in it for the long haul.
Whatâs ironic is that after years of working alongside high-profile stars (his first film role was as Mel Gibsonâs son in âThe Patriot,â and he co-starred in the WBâs short-lived drama âJack & Bobbyâ as Christine Lahtiâs son) and the success of â3:10 to Yuma,â Lerman hadnât settled on acting as a lifelong occupation. Worried about a future in show business, he considered putting his burgeoning career on hold to attend college. âThen I had this moment where I realized that I didnât care where I ended up,â he says. âI didnât care if I was that guy who never went to college. If I failed as an actor, I would embrace it.â So rather than enroll in college, he signed on to do âPercy Jackson.â âI figured Iâd do this big fantasy studio film and commit to the contract I have with them and start trying to do other films as well,â he says. âI just decided to fully go for it.â
That turned out to be the right decision; Lerman says that âPercy Jacksonâ changed his career âbig time. I know that studios look at actors and see dollar signs. So it really opened doors in terms of being able to read more scripts and help get things made that I was passionate about.â Two such projects include âPerksâ and âWriters,â the latter of which comes from first-time writer-director Josh Boone. The film stars Greg Kinnear as a famous author whose daughter is in a relationship with Lermanâs character. The job came to him as an offer, something that Lerman is still adjusting to. âIt was really nice,â he says. âAfter so many years of auditioning, to just be asked is incredibly flattering.â
âPerks,â which premieres in Toronto Sept. 8 and hits theaters Sept. 21, contains Lermanâs most challenging role to date. Lerman stars as Charlie, an introverted high school freshman who begins to come out of his shell when he meets brother and sister Sam and Patrick, played by Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. The two bring Charlie into their group of friends, and the shy aspiring writer experiences such important teenage rites of passage as drugs, music, and first love. Lerman pulls off a brave, winning performance beautifully.
When writer-director Stephen Chbosky (who adapted his own novel) first met with Lerman, he wasnât picturing him as Charlie. âWhen I met with Steve he said, âI see you more as Patrick,â â Lerman says. âAnd I said, âI really like that role, but Iâm more interested in Charlie.â â They had another meeting during which Lerman auditioned with three sides, including two wildly different scenesâone in which Charlie gets stoned for the first time and one in which he begins to break down emotionally. Says Chbosky, âRight away, it was clear. Within 15 seconds I said to myself, âIâve found Charlie.â After his audition, I never held another, because he was perfect.â
To prepare for the role, Lerman arrived at the Pittsburgh set two weeks early and stayed alone at a motel in the middle of a strip mall. He got into town on Easter Sunday and took himself out for a meal at the local T.G.I. Fridayâs. âEveryone was looking at me like, âPoor kid,â â Lerman says. âThey were all with their families, and I was eating alone. But it really helped me get in touch with that isolation. It made me awkward all over again.â
Also on Lermanâs agenda was âtrying to find things that really disturbed meâ to get into Charlieâs fragile mental state. He began to watch documentaries, noting, âMovies donât disturb me as much because I can stand back and see itâs a film. But a documentary is a record of something real. And that can really mess me up.â Lerman watched more than 50 documentaries, including a 2002 film called âGladiator Days: Anatomy of a Prison Murderâ that was of particular help. âThereâs a scene where Charlie says he canât get images out of his head, and theyâre driving him crazy. And this is what I thought of, this was the thing driving me crazy. It was the most disturbing thing Iâve ever seen, and it helped me a lot.â
A career filled with famous co-stars no doubt also helped prepare Lerman for channeling emotional turmoil. The actor says he was never more anxious than when working on â3:10 to Yuma,â in which he beat out more than 100 actors to share the screen with Crowe and Christian Bale. Says casting director Sarah Katzman of Lermanâs character, âThat was the hardest role because there are a lot of kids out there, but they are very Hollywood-ized. To find someone whoâs a natural who feels they could be from 1885 and from the plainsâit was very hard.â Lerman admits to some early nerves. âI expected these intense actors, but they were both wonderful and generous, and I learned so much from them,â he says. âIt ended up being an amazing experience all around.â
Lerman is learning that good work begets more work. Case in point: When Aronofsky was casting âNoah,â he asked Chbosky to show him âPerks.â Aronofsky was impressed enough that he cast not only Lerman but Watson as well. A huge fan of Aronofskyâs, Lerman canât wait for people to see the finished film. âI donât know exactly how to describe it,â he says. âBut from the script and the concept art and just talking to Darren, this is not a childrenâs story. Itâs going to be amazing, and I think it will really blow people away. Itâs one in a string of projects that Iâm just honored to get to be a part of.â
