Why I want Logan Lerman to play Poseidon.

Before I get started I have to say that realistically I know he won’t be cast as Poseidon but I can dream, can’t I?! Ok now back to my musings.

First, I just straight up believe that he would be a good choice. He’s a great actor and he has that nice scruffy look now that would be great for Poseidon. Like are you really going to try and say that this man wouldn’t make a perfect Poseidon? I will die on that hill!

Also, he played a great dead body in Bullet Train so how much harder would it be to play a deadbeat dad?

My second reason is of course connected to nostalgia but it’s more complicated than that. I think a lot of people would agree with me that Logan as Percy was probably the one good thing that came from those movies (and if not then I guess I’m the weird one then). While the rest of it was pretty shitty he was the bright light in the darkness, so I think casting him would be a good way to I guess honor that in a way. Or I think that it would at least would be a nice way to acknowledge that the movies were a thing. Sure a bad thing but they still deserve some acknowledgment in my eyes (I might be the odd man out in that sense). I also think about the fact that his name is always going to be connected to Percy Jackson so why don’t they make that connection a good one instead of a negative one. It would especially feel like a nice nod to older PJO fans like me, that first learned of the series because of the first movie, by giving the casting an almost redemption arc-like feel.

So, those are my opinions about Poseidon’s casting and I really hope I’m not the only one who thinks this.
