My Take On the Overcrowded Box-Office Weekend -- "Planes," "Percy Jackson," "We're the Millers," "Elysium

Logan Lerman Talks About "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" 

Logan Lerman returns as the son of Poseidon in the sequel "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters." This time, he and his demigod friends has one mission -- to find the mythical Golden Fleece.

*** What made him want to return to the role?
*** How did he do the jump from a small indie like "Perks" to a big blockbuster like "Percy?"
*** The film's attempt to play with Greek mythology
*** Percy's search for heroism
*** What does he want the fans to look forward to in the sequel?
*** His family's second home in my hood, Palm Springs!

And she charmed everyone! And rightfully so!
