Kate Walsh is set to play a concerned Mom to Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.) Lerman starred with Mevin McKidd in the Lightning Thief, so should have no problem working alongside another red headed Grey’s star. Also starring in the Movie will be Emma Watson (Hermione in Harry Potter)
Kate Walsh is joining Emma Watson and Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, EW has learned exclusively. Walsh will play a smart, Midwestern mother concerned about her shy high school freshman son (Lerman), who is befriended by a party-happy high school senior (Watson). Stephen Chbosky, the author of controversial young adult novel, is directing from his own screenplay; production is currently underway in Pittsburgh. Mae Whitman and Johnny Simmons (both from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), and Nina Dobrev (The CW’s Vampire Diaries) also star in the film.
Thank you to Tsenio for sending this in!
Honestly it doesn’t sound like my sort of movie. But that’s a pretty high end cast so I’m sure it will be a great watch!
