Logan Lerman & Johnny Simmons: 'VMAN' Feature!
Logan on what he wants for his future: “The idea of continuing to work with great filmmakers is always so exciting to me. What scares me the most is that I have a career in acting.”
Ezra on the era the film takes place: “I was born the year this film takes place, so I very much grew up feeling the strange weight of this particular time for American kids, and there are some helpful consistencies in the last 20 years for sure. Culture has been sick and corrupted and kids have angstfully learned to deal with it for a very long time.”
Johnny on what excites him: “Everything good intimidates me. Anytime I feel intimidated, as I did with Perks, I know it’s a good sign. I’m onto something. I’m excited most by things that intimidate me (…) Oscar Wilde talks about the theater being the greatest of all art forms because it’s the most immediate way a human can share with another human what it’s like to be a human. I agree with that.”
Reece on the first book that impacted him: “I think it was probably The Hobbit. I remember reading that book in a week, when I was about 13. It was the first book that I ever read that quickly, and it really made me feel accomplished.”
