    A brilliant and remarkably gifted 12‐year‐old is trained to become Earth’s ultimate military leader in Ender’s Game, the long‐awaited big‐screen adaptation of the classic, Hugo and Nebula Award winning novel. After surviving a devastating attack by the insect‐like Formics, the people of Earth have spent years readying themselves for a repeat attack by nurturing a new generation of child geniuses to be trained as warriors. The planet’s best and brightest youngsters are selected to attend Battle School, an orbiting space station where they compete for a chance to become a commander of the International Forces. Using advanced computer simulations and rigorous game‐like exercises, they train in an atmosphere of violence and intense competition, knowing that only one will be selected to lead. Ender Wiggins (Asa Butterfield) is exceptional, even among his extraordinary classmates. His unique combination of intelligence, empathy, and strategic brilliance makes him a standout in the classroom and in the Battle Room—a zero‐gravity playground where games of futuristic laser tag test the trainees’ strategic and physical abilities. But Ender’s singular gifts inspire envy in his fellow recruits, and the school’s commander, Colonel Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford), deliberately alienates Ender from the other children in order to hone his individual leadership skills. An outsider at first, Ender, with his preternatural understanding of human nature gradually builds a coalition among his peers, and is soon promoted to command school—located on a distant planet once used by the Formics as a forward staging post for their invasion of Earth. Under the severe tutelage of Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), the brilliant general who defeated the Formics years earlier, Ender is rapidly promoted to lead his fellow students in simulated war games against enemy forces. Certain that another attack by the Formics is imminent, Graff and Rackham believe they have only weeks to ready Ender to lead the International Fleet in a battle for planetary survival. But as the boy prepares to face his final test, he develops gnawing doubts about the monumental task that lies ahead. Is this the best stragefy for achieving peace? Ender’s Game is written for the screen and directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, X‐Men Origins: Wolverine), based on the book titled Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. It stars Academy Award® nominee Harrison Ford (Witness, Actor in a Leading Role, 1985; Star Wars), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas), Academy Award® nominee Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Actress in a Supporting Role, 2010), Academy Award® nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Actress in a Leading Role, 2011; Doubt) and Academy Award® nominee Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Actress in a Supporting Role, 2006; Zombieland) and Academy Award® winner Sir Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Actor in a Leading Role, 1982; Iron Man 3). Ender’s Game is produced by Gigi Pritzker (Drive, The Way, Way Back), Linda McDonough (Rabbit Hole, Drive), Alex Kurtzman (Now You See Me, Star Trek Into Darkness), Roberto Orci (Now You See Me, Star Trek Into Darkness), Robert Chartoff (The Mechanic, Rocky Balboa), Lynn Hendee (The Tempest, My Country), Orson Scott Card and Ed Ulbrich (Oblivion, Tron: Legacy).

    During a sweltering summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister’s (Skylan Brooks) hard-living mother (Jennifer Hudson) is apprehended by the police, leaving the boy and nine-year-old Pete (Ethan Dizon) alone to forage for food while dodging Child Protective Services and the destructive scenarios of the Brooklyn projects. Faced with more than any child can be expected to bear, the resourceful Mister nevertheless feels he is an unstoppable force against seemingly unmovable obstacles. But what really keeps the pair in the survival game is much more Mister’s vulnerability than his larger-than-life attitude. THE INEVITABLE DEFEAT OF MISTER & PETE is a beautifully observed and tremendously moving film about salvation through friendship and the way transformation sometimes can happen just by holding on long enough. Director George Tillman, Jr. draws indelible performances from a fantastic cast, which includes Jordin Sparks, Golden Globe® and Primetime Emmy® Award winner Jeffrey Wright, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Anthony Mackie, and Golden Globe® and Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson (Supporting Actress, Dreamgirls, 2006), all led by Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon in stunning breakout performances as Mister and Pete. The film also features new music by Alicia Keys. Codeblack Films and Lionsgate present an iDeal Partners / State Street production in association with Floren Shieh Productions / Archer Gray Productions / Cherry Sky Films / AKW Productions.

    In this entry we look back at former child and teen star Liam Aiken and his time as a fan favorite here at teen stars online. Liam was born January 7th, 1990, in New York City, and by age 10 was a seasoned pro with a major Broadway credit (A Doll's House) and marked his fifth film role with "I Dreamed of Africa." He co-starred in Columbia Pictures' hit "Stepmom," playing the son of Susan Sarandon and Ed Harris and Julia Roberts' stepson. In 1998, he acted in "The Object of My Affection," starring Jennifer Aniston & Paul Rudd as the latter's pupil; and as Parker Posey's son in "Henry Fool." He also appears in two films unveiled at the Sundance Film Festival, "I Remember" and "Montana." The next few years saw Liam explode in popularity by appearing in such films as "Sweet November" (2001), "The Rising Place" and "Road to Perdition." He then shot to teen stardom with roles in "Good Boy!" (2003) and hit the top with "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" in 2004 which also starred funnyman Jim Carey and Emily Browning. After a two year hiatus he returned in "Fay Grim" a ten-years-later continuation of director’s Hal Hartley's "Henry Fool." This ended Liam’s run as a top teen stars and he took a four year break from films. He was next seen in the 2010 film "The Killer Inside Me" and two years later he played Mr. Will in “"Electrick Children"”, Tyler in “"Girls Against Boys"” and Josh Green in “"Nor'easter."” He also played Bryan in "How to Be a Man" (2013) and is set to play Ned in "Ned Rifle" set for a 2014 release date. That is a look at actor Liam Aiken who from his first acting job in a Ford Windstar commercial was born to be an actor, did you know Liam tried out for the role of Harry Potter and lost out to Daniel Radcliffe? Also he turned down the role in “The Sixth Sense” which then shot Haley Joel Osment to stardom.

    Jacob Smith born January 21, 1990 in Monrovia, California is probably best known for his role of Jake Baker in the 20th Century Fox hit film “Cheaper by the Dozen” from 2003. The hit film shot Jacob to stardom and into the hearts of young girls. Smith now 23 as of January 2103 has not been seen since he shot the pilot for the proposed series “Secrets of a Small Town,” the show never got off the ground and Jacob Smith has not graced the screen big and small. A year earlier he played Jake Baker for the second time in the sequel Cheaper by the Dozen 2. Jake had a run of films starting with 1998’s “Nowhere to Go” and the fun “Small Soldiers” and also found time for episodic TV in series such as “Hyperion Bay,” “Step by Step,” “Walker, Texas Ranger” and a recurring role for 32 episodes of “Party of Five” as Owen Salinger among others. He also appeared on the TV films “Phantom of the Megaplex” and “Evolution Child.” Jacob film roles continued with “Hansel & Gretel” (2002) and “Dragonfly” (2002) and a year later took off with the role in Cheaper by the Dozen, this made him at that time one of the top child stars of the day. He followed that up in 2004 with “Troy” and a year later the sequel to Cheaper by the Dozen. Not much is known publicly about Jacob since he last appeared in a TV or film role but contrary to some reports Jake is alive and well and I supposed right where he wants to be. Cheaper by the Dozen, Troy and his guest spot on Without a Trace made Jacob Smith one of the top child stars from 2003 to 2006.

    We remember Joseph Mazzello in this edition of looking back, Joe was born in Rhinebeck, New York, and started acting when he was 5 years old and went on to share the screen with some of the best in the business. Joe began with the film "Presumed Innocent" as Wendell McGaffney nut came to the public’s attention when he appeared two years later as ‘Bobby' in Richard Donner’s poignant "Radio Flyer" along with another talented child star in Elijah Wood. The two young actors carry the film rather brilliantly, I recalled when seeing the red wagon on the film poster it would be a fun children’s film but is far from that as it touched on a tough subject. That same year he also appeared in “Jersey Girl” but hit pay dirt in 1993 as ‘Tim Murphy’ in the Steven Spielberg hit “Jurassic Park,” the same year he appeared in Richard Attenborough’s “Shadowlands” and Mazzello was on a roll. He followed those up in 1994 with one of my most loved films “The River Wild” with Meryl Streep as they take a wild ride down a violent river the film is filled with spectacular scenery and terrific acting from the leads. The following year saw him playing ‘Dexter” in “The Cure” with the late Brad Renfro and “Three Wishes.” Two years later with the sequel “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and the sci-fi/adventure “Star Kid “ things started to slow down for Mazzello, in 1998 after playing ‘Joe Wenteworth’ in “Simon Birch” he was seen sparingly over the next few years. In that time he attended film school at USC and walk away with a degree in cinema and television production and aspires to be a director. In 2010 with a role in “The Social Network” and for 2013 with roles in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “Dear Sidewalk” Joe seems to be taking on more acting roles. Joseph was originally going to play the role of Jack in 1991 Hook but was deemed to small and the role went to Charlie Korsmo, Spielberg then adjusted the ages of the kids in Jurassic Park so Mazzello could play Tim. When work began on the film A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) in 1993, he was cast as David; the role later went to Haley Joel Osment.     An updated look at Joeseph Mazzello

He started his acting career in a public service announcement at just 22 months old and followed that up by appearing in his first feature film at 27 months old. Miko was a prolific child actor churning out movies with regularity, such hits as Mercury Rising with Bruce Willis and “Kindergarten Cop” with Arnold Schwarzenegger. In total to date he has appeared in over 20 films including the soon to be released “A City of Shoulders and Noses” (2013), as you see Miko never stopped but simply slowed down as he is still very much involved in film. Miko’s talents really shone through in 1998’s “Mercury Rising” opposite Willis; here he plays ‘Simon Lynch’ a nine-year old autistic savant who is targeted fir death by Shadowy elements in the NSA when he is able to decipher a top secret code. Willis plays the cop who protects him from danger in this exciting action flick. Four year earlier he played Dylan in the creepy horror flick “New Nightmare” and at the start of his career he was ‘Cage Creed’ in the Stephen King penned “Pet Sematary”, one of the creepiest kids you will ever see in film. He also appeared in numerous TV series and was a regular as ‘Aaron Bailey’ on “Full House.” As mentioned Miko never really stopped acting but as one of the most popular kid stars when he was listed here on teen stars online I had to look back at this talented child star who is doing just fine as an adult. Keep up with what Hughes is up to via his twitter account @MikoHughes.     Miko Hughes all grown up.

    When you mention Mara Wilson most that were kids at the time or have seen it in later years either via video or TV will remember her as the title character from Matilda the big screen adaptation of the much-loved Roald Dahl novel directed by Danny DeVito, or the earlier Mrs. Doubtfire. Well the title of this series whatever happened to does to apply as much to Mara who by all accounts seem to be doing well and quite happy with what she is doing since quitting acting after filming Thomas and the Magic Railroad which was released in the year 2000. Mara was indeed a successful child actor at the time, she was first spotted by most in the hit "Mrs. Doubtfire" which is a personal favorite of mine, she then went on to Miracle on 34th Street with some TV work between on the series "Melrose Place" as Nikki Petrova. She then went on to "Matilda" another film that I enjoyed and many today continue to enjoy its entertainment value by DVD or TV viewings. Mara then filmed A Simple Wish which has since been renamed to (The Fairygodmother) and again another highly enjoyable family film enjoyed by many. Three years later after "Thomas and the Magic Railroad" which failed at the box-office in the USA but had more success overseas. Mara Wilson in the short time has left a body of work that is still enjoyed today by many and her decision to walk away seemed to be her own as he decided to focus on school and enjoy her teenage years. It’s reported that in June 2005 she graduated from Idyllwild School of Music & Arts and went on to attend New York University. In 2008 she wrote and performed the one woman play, "Weren't You That Girl". Tit ran for three days and detailed her life and how others treated her because of her days as a child star. Mara lives the quiet life in NYC and Writes plays, fiction and non-fiction, and maintains a blog. Seems to be doing quite well thank you and any here that has not seen any of the mentioned titles then I recommend giving them a watch, especially “Matilda.” For a better explanation on why she quit acting, then hear it from Mara herself from this posting on her blog.   Mara Wilson in a more recent photo.
