This news has had many fans of the books realizing that former Percy Jackson actor Logan Lerman is now entirely too old for the part, but still can play the father of Percy Jackson, Poseidon.

In one of his interviews, Lerman revealed that he would love to be part of the new series saying, “Honestly, I’m amazed by it and I’m flattered that people still talk about the Percy Jackson series."

When asked about the role of Poseidon, he continued, “Yeah, potentially, it just depends. It’s early right now you know. It usually starts with an announcement like this for a big project. So, they announced the development of this show. I wonder when they will be ready to make it. They’ve got to approve scripts, budget it, and cast it. Do this whole thing. So, it could be a ways away for them, you know. I’m curious if there would be a role that would be interesting for me or something like that. I’d definitely consider it.”

Fans have latched onto this answer and have continued to campaign that Lerman take on the role! Just look at their reactions online:
