many know Logan Lerman for playing Percy Jackson in the two movies based on the books Rick Riordan. But it seems that the actor does not want to heed a request from a fan to play Poseidon.
Ever since Disney announced the series Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Lerman received several requests to be part of the series, but specifically as Poseidon. In the story, Poseidon is the god of the seas and the father of Percy.
In an interview for the EsquireLerman explained the reason for not accepting to be part of the disney+ like Poseidon. The actor thinks he is too young to play such a role.
“People ask me all the time if I’m going to play Poseidon, and I’m like, ‘Am I old enough to play Poseidon?’ I don’t think I’m old enough for that! I wouldn’t have cast myself in this role if I was part of the creative team. I don’t know, this is all hypothetical so I have no idea.”
Still interviewed, Lerman said he didn’t get “the call” to be a part of the series, as he also confirmed he’s not ready.
‘I don’t think I’m ready for this. I don’t even know if it’s interesting to me too, in terms of: I don’t even know what it would be. But there’s no secret waiting to be announced or anything like that. I get asked about this a lot and I hate to disappoint and say, ‘No, I don’t know anything and I’m not involved’, but that’s the truth.”
In the movie The lightning thief (2010), Kevin McKidd Poseidon played. Disney has not revealed which actor will play the Greek god in the series.
Lerman strives for the success of the Percy Jackson series
Percy Jackson and the Olympians will star Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri. Logan Lerman said he’s excited about the show.
“There are so many things I just don’t know about this project. But what I do know is that Rick Riordan does it, and that’s really cool for fans of the Percy Jackson series. I’m excited for these fans to tell that version of the story and see what they do with it.”
The first season of Percy Jackson and the Olympians will edit the book The lightning thief. In the plot, Percy is accused of stealing the Thunderbolt from Zeus. He discovers that he is the son of Poseidon and goes on a journey to prove his innocence. The series does not yet have a release date.
