Logan Lerman on working with Al Pacino for Hunters
Lerman plays the role of Jonah Heidelbaum opposite Al Pacino's Meyer Offerman in the Nazi-hunting revenge series
Actor Logan Lerman of Percy Jackson and The Three Musketeers fame is elated to share screen space with Al Pacino. The 28-year-old worked with the veteran actor in Amazon Prime's upcoming original series, Hunters.
“I feel really lucky. I was very nervous about it at first, but Al has a really disarming presence and is a really humble and generous person. It's just been a joy ride working with him and getting to know him personally,” says Lerman.
He adds, “When I was talking about being a part of this project, like with my family and friends, it was the first time where I felt uncomfortable telling them who else was in the show because it felt like bragging. It felt weird because he's such an icon and he's such an important figure in cinematic history, but also my life. Al Pacino is such a big figure for people that love movies. So, it was surreal to work with him, but then you just like get to know him and he's a great person and a great collaborator.”
Lerman plays the role of Jonah Heidelbaum in the Nazi-hunting revenge series. With his grandmother having to face the brutalities of Nazism, Jonah finds a friend in Meyer Offerman (Al Pacino), who is the leader of a Nazi-killing group.
Also starring Kate Mulvany, Tiffany Boone, and Carol Kane, Hunters premieres on Amazon Prime this Friday (February 21).
