    Like Charlie Korsmo covered in the last blog, Barret Oliver was a popular and talented child star on the scene for a few year and then just up and quit acting. Barrett Spencer Oliver was born on the 24 August 1973, Los Angeles, California, USA and attended Los Feliz (Apple) School, an Elementary School in Los Angeles. He developed an interest in acting after his elder brother, Kyle, became involved in acting as a child. Barret by his own admission stated that he started out with a commercial with no lines but by the mid 80’s he was quite a bankable child star. His next big step was on a 1981 episode of the TV series "The Incredible Hulk," and during 1982-83 he had small roles in the films "Jekyll and Hyde... Together Again," "Kiss Me Goodbye" and "Uncommon Valor." On television he played Q.P. in the TV movie "The Circle Family" and guest starred on the series "Knight Rider" and "Love, Sidney." It was 1984 and playing the role of Bastian in the beloved hit "The NeverEnding Story" that shot him to child star fame. That same year he also appeared in Wes Craven’s "Invitation to Hell." The next year in 1985 he played the title character in "D.A.R.Y.L." and also played David in "Cocoon." The next few years he filmed some TV movies and made guest appearances before returning in 1998 for the sequel to Cocoon. His final work was on the film Scenes from the "Class Struggle in Beverly Hills" and that was it for Barret Oliver. Much like Korsmo with no facts to back it up I think Barret simply got tired of acting and walked away from that life, Last reports ion 2004 placed him teaching photography in Los Angeles, California. His print work has been part of numerous gallery and museum exhibitions. He has also done the Wet-Plate process in Ireland for a Guinness commercial and in Romania for the motion picture Cold Mountain. In addition, he has written articles on photography and contributed to demonstrations and workshops. He also authored the book "A History of the Woodburytype." Woodburytypes are made from a 19th century photo-mechanical process.

    It looks like One Direction has done it again. Two smash albums in just two years, books, movies, sold out world tours, and the constant adoration of their fans, the “Directioners”. This group has taken the world by storm and everybody knows it. Even if you’re not a fan, you cannot deny the way that clever marketing, social media, and a great look has propelled this music sensation not only to the top of the UK music charts but to the whole world in general. They won all 3 of their nominations in MTV’s music awards as well as having two out of the top five albums in the US in the same year. No modern group has done that in the Nielsen era. Their books have made it to the NY Times bestseller list and now they threaten to outdo even themselves with the trailer for their latest movie, 1D3D having just been released. This could easily be the best year yet for One Direction and it’s only February.  Since their creation at the hands of Simon Cowell, One Direction has had only one direction, straight to the top. They were formed from Simon’s show X-factor in which the boys failed the singles auditions but looked promising as a group. Thus the concept was born. Since that moment, the boys have been unstoppable. Their two world tours, 10 million and counting Twitter followers, and the fact that everything they touch seems to turn into platinum attest to their success. With the release of their latest project, 1D3D, they will manage to make yet another success.  The movie is much like the last film they did “Up All Night: The Live Tour” and fans will again be delighted with the level of access they get to the group. Not only will there be the live concerts you would expect, there are the many candid moments of the boys simply being boys. Candid moments in the bathroom, pranks, and the fun moments the group has while on tour. There are also the rumors of a soundtrack being released for the movie which could include material not yet heard by the fans. The movie gives its fans what they want, a behind the scenes look at One Direction in a way that only they see themselves. This movie should easily surpass their last one and possibly become the best selling concert movie of all time. With the possibility of new songs being released for the movie, this could make 2013 an even bigger year for the group. What could possibly be better than a smash hit in the box office, possibilities for another top 5 album, and the continued adoration from their fans still shows that this group still has only one direction, straight up.

      Charlie Korsmo was born in Fargo, North Dakota on July 20, 1978 and as a child actor between 1990 and 1991 appeared in "Men Don't Leave," "Dick Tracy," "What About Bob?," "Hook," "The Doctor" and the made for TV film "Heat Wave" all this in the space of these two years. He appeared opposite such talent as Jessica Lange, Joan Cusack, Kathy Bates, Warren Beatty, Richard Dreyfuss, Bill Murray, Dustin Hoffman, Robin Williams and Julia Roberts. All before the ripe old age of 13 and his talent stood out next to the heavyweights and then Korsmo disappeared form films for seven long years before an appearance in the 1998 film Can't Hardly Wait and that has been it to this date. So what happened to such a promising young child actor? Well Korsmo simply got up and quit acting after 1991’s Hook with Robin Williams and directed by Steven Spielberg. What is he up to today? Well Mr. Korsmo is an extremely brilliant man; he graduated from MIT with a degree in physics. He's worked for the the House Select Committee on Homeland Security and Environmental Protection Agency. Then in 2006 he graduated from Yale Law School, and he currently teaches law at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio. Recently he was nominated for membership on the Board of Trustees of the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program President Obama. How impressive is all of that? Good for Charlie and join me here regularly as I take a look back at what some former child stars are up to these days.   Below is a recent look at Mr. Korsmo

    One of the best performances I have ever seen by a child actor was by Max Pomeranc in the 1993 film "Searching for Bobby Fischer" playing the role of Josh Waitzkin, I am not alone in this view as you see here in a quote from actor Jake Gyllenhaal who said “One of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen is Max Pomeranc as the young boy in ‘Searching for Bobby Fischer.’ Something about watching a child and his ability to be honest and his desperation for honesty even in the midst of all the adults surrounding them—which is essentially what that movie is about—and the performance itself is so present and exists on its own even today.” And that is some high praise. Max was born in Manhattan, New York on March 21, 1984 and when he made his big-screen debut in Searching for Bobby Fischer, he was one of the country's top 100 chess players in his age group. In Searching for Bobby Fischer Max plays the role of a prepubescent chess prodigy refuses to harden himself in order to become a champion like the famous but unlikable Bobby Fischer. It is a very well-acted film not just by Max but a strong cast with the likes of Laurence Fishburne, Joan Allen, Joe Mantegna and Ben Kinglsley among others. The movie is one of my favorite films and I highly recommend a viewing, it carries a strong 7.5 rating on IMDB. After Searching for Bobby Fischer Max appeared in the TV movie "Nowhere to hide" (1994) and the enjoyable Family Drama Fluke with Samuel L. Jackson supplying the voice of Rumbo. After the TV movie Journey(1995) Max was simply not seen in the world of acting until a small role in 2008’s "Definitely, Maybe" and that was it. Very little was known in the ensuing years but reports had him graduating from The Bronx High School of Science in 2002. He then attended McGill University in Montreal, Canada (2003) and Graduated in 2006. In "Searching for Bobby Fischer" and "Fluke" Max Pomeranc left us with two enjoyable films and two very good performances.

    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.

    This look back at some former teen stars featured on Teen Stars Online looks at Khleo Thomas who instantly grabbed the attention of pre-teen and teen girls in 2003 with the release of Disney’s “Holes” where he played the role of Zero. The role made him an instant fan favorite and catapulted him in to other roles through the 2000’s and into a recording career as a Hip hop, Contemporary R&B artist. Before “Holes” the little known actor had appeared on and episode of Bill Cosby's "Kids Say the Darndest Things" and guest roles on the series “Family Law” and “City Guys” and a small role in the 2002 film “Friday After Next.” Then came “Holes” adapted from Louis Sachar's Holes of the same name and that changed things. Thomas was born in Anchorage, Alaska, the son of an army officer who at the time was stationed in Alaska. His mother is a Jewish immigrant from Morocco and his father is African-American Khleo lived in Germany with the family returning to the United States when he was four. Looking back to the days when this site was still going and there was no other sites that really featured young stars and with a Khleo website and a forum the young fans came by the thousands and lifted the forum on Delphi at that time to number two on the entire system and that was not an easy feat. After “Holes” he landed a role in the film “Baadasssss!” Later that same year and was followed up by a guest spot on the series “E.R”, the TV movie “Going to the Mat: and the feature film remake “Walking Tall.” The next year his fame continued with roles in the film “Roll Bounce,” “Dirty” and the series such as “The Bernie Mac Show.” His recording career stemmed from the film Holes and the song “Dig It” which garnered some popularity in the music field. Things took off after he became associated with Bow Wow and his LBW label; he also became associated with Soulja Boy's label SODMG Entertainment. Khleo’s recording career continues to this day kicking off in 2010 with his debut mixtape The World Is a Cartoon it had over 100,000 downloads. He is currently working on his debut album Just a Sample which will be released sometime in 2014. He continues his acting with recent roles in “Boogie Town” (2012) the series “Bones” (2013) and the expected 2014 or 2015 film “Victor.” Retro Khleo Gallery

    It is every teenager's dream to find fame and fortune and the lucky few, such as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, have used it as a launchpad to a successful career. Justin Bieber found infamy through Youtube, which he then turned into a successful pop career with the guidance of Usher. Miley Cyrus meanwhile took her fame from the hit show Hannah Montana and used that spotlight to build herself into a successful pop star in her own right. Teenage success stories like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are not a new phenomenon, with teenage acts hitting the big time for years. However, these type of acts rarely seem to build on their success, and often disappear from the public eye or undergo a drastic change of direction, isolating the artist from what was previously their target audience. One of the main reasons for this is that their target audience has outgrown them. When you look at Justin Bieber's target audience for his music, they're generally young teens or pre-teens. Once they hit their late teens their musical tastes tend to change, and Bieber's music is not what they want to listen to. Another reason is that the artist themselves outgrow their musical style. Cheesy pop music is great when you're 16, but once Justin Bieber turns 20 will he still want to sing the same kind of songs? A prime example of this is Britney Spears, who started rebelling and singing rock songs rather than pop as she grew up. While Britney's career has remained relatively successful, other artists have struggled to maintain their success while changing their image. Macauley Culkin, star of the Home Alone movies, was very successful and had a huge fan base when starring in family movies, but soon outgrew these and has had limited success since. Hanson are another example of an act who have struggled to build any success since developing a more grown up image; their recent attempted comeback was less than successful, mainly because they appeared to have no target audience. Miley Cyrus has already begun to show her wild side and appears to be taking a similar career path to Britney Spears. Justin Bieber on the other hand is still making teen-friendly music, and will undoubtedly remain successful for the time being should he continue with this path. But what will happen when he hits 20? Will he become a rock star? Even a heavy metal act? Only time will tell, but history suggests that his teen-friendly style is unlikely to carry on forever.
