Was considered for Peter Parker/Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), before the role went to Andrew Garfield. On April 10, 2010, Drew McWeeny of HitFix reported that Logan was "almost 100% locked" in to play the role, a story carried by most film news sites. In both the 2010 and 2015 casting cycles for Spider-Man, no actor reported by film websites as being all-but-confirmed for the role has ever ended up actually cast as Spider-Man. The other actors erroneously reported to have been cast are Jamie Bell (in early June 2010), Josh Hutcherson (on June 30, 2010, one day before the official casting of Andrew Garfield), Dylan O'Brien (in March 2015), and Asa Butterfield (in May 2015).
Logan is a relative, by marriage, of twin singers Evan Lowenstein and Jaron Lowenstein. One of Logan's maternal great-grandfathers, born Louis Abraham Freedman, had a sister named Esther Freedman. Esther's husband, Joseph Winestock, had a sister, Adella Winestock, who was one of Evan and Jaron Lowenstein's maternal great-grandmothers.
Logan is of entirely Ashkenazi Jewish descent. Logan's grandparents were born in 4 different countries. Logan's paternal grandfather, Max Lerman, was born in 1927, in Berlin, Germany, to a Jewish family from Poland. They left Germany in the 1930s, because of the Nazi regime, and lived in Shanghai, China, until the late 1940s (in the 1930s and early 1940s, Shanghai took in Jewish refugees). Logan's paternal grandmother, Mina Schwartz, was born in Mexico City, Mexico, to Russian Jewish immigrant parents, Abraham and Zisla. Logan's maternal grandfather, Jay Goldman, was a Jewish immigrant from Poland. Logan's maternal grandmother, Susan Freeman (originally "Freedman"), was born in Los Angeles, California; Susan's parents, who were raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, were both from Jewish families from Eastern Europe (Russia, Poland, and Lithuania).
Logan attended Hebrew School and had a Bar Mitzvah ceremony, in a Conservative Jewish synagogue.
Logan attended Beverly Hills High School, from which he graduated in 2010. His yearbook quote was "Receive with simplicity everything that happens to you." The line appeared in the opening moments of the 2009 Coen Brothers film A Serious Man (2009). The film credited the line to Rashi (1040-1105), a medieval Talmudist.
His family owns a prosthetics company named Lerman & Son. His great-grandfather, Jacob Lerman, founded the company in 1915.
His mother, Lisa (Goldman), works as his manager, and his father, Larry Lerman, is an orthotist and businessman.
He announced to his mother at the age of 2 1/2 that he was going to be an actor, after watching a Jackie Chan movie.
[on his similarity to his character, Marcus, in Indignation (2016)] I share very similar views to Marcus. I come from a Jewish family, as well. I definitely identify myself as being Jewish, and I'm proud of my background. But I have the same questions as Marcus has in his mind about life and religion. I'm questioning - I question things and I have no answers.
[on not enjoying watching his own work] I didn't watch Perks until it was released... I really liked it, but felt uncomfortable watching it. I know it's a character and everything, but it's still uncomfortable to watch... That's kind of how I feel about Fury right now.
[on his similarities to his character in The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)] I guess with his awkwardness and trying to figure things out in that time period and how to socialize and fit in. I guess I wasn't as naive as him, but I definitely had the morals that he had... A lot of situations in the script have actually happened to me in real life, so I just connected with it.
I've always been able to just go off for a couple of months, shoot a film, go back to school and have my regular life. My family thought it was really important to have that level of normalcy. You kind of need to keep that in order to even tap into a character, let alone be a functioning human being.
I play music. I love learning a new instrument and creating songs; it also goes hand in hand with filmmaking, like creating a feeling and emotion in music to complement a scene. Songwriting, guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, a little bit of violin, a little bit of everything - primarily guitar and piano. It's just a hobby for now, maybe it would turn into a profession someday... who knows.
They say every year you put off university is like three years if you want to go back. But, for now, this seems like the right path.
Some people don't have an open mind, and when I was traveling to different places I think I found it hard to enjoy things. You know, I come from a great city where there are lots of things happening, and if you end up in a small town where you don't have all those things you can feel the difference. Somewhere along the way, though, I think I learned to appreciate the difference.
I'm from Los Angeles and acting was accessible. There's always a place to wait in line for an audition and I kind of begged my parents to take me. My mom nurtured my career and helped me climb the ladder. I have had a passion for movies from a young age. I first got interested in acting when I was probably four or five.
I just don't want to repeat the same thing over and over again, so I'm always looking for something that's going to be challenging and make me nervous every time I start a project.
The best thing about this is being able to learn from, and act with, your heroes.
I'm not the kind of guy who got into this to be famous.
[Portraying a geek is] "Fun. I'm not the kind of guy kids picked on in school, but I've seen it happen. I've never really given much thought to being cool. I don't really think about it one way or the other."
I'd much rather play sports with my free time. I also like watching classic movies and watching certain TV shows, like The Simpsons (1989). I'm a big basketball fan too. That would be my sport of choice.
[about his character in Jack & Bobby (2004)] "The kind of boy few people really understand. He's a bit of a misfit."
