    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.

    Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s (“Seabiscuit: An American Legend”) enormously popular book, Unbroken brings to the big screen Zamperini’s unbelievable and inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit. Starring alongside O’Connell are Domhnall Gleeson and Finn Wittrock as Phil and Mac—the airmen with whom Zamperini endured perilous weeks adrift in the open Pacific—Garrett Hedlund and John Magaro as fellow POWs who find an unexpected camaraderie during their internment, Alex Russell as Zamperini’s brother, Pete, and in his English-language feature debut, Japanese actor Miyavi as the brutal camp guard known only to the men as “The Bird.” The film is produced by Jolie, as well as Clayton Townsend (This Is 40), Matthew Baer (City by the Sea) and Erwin Stoff (The Day the Earth Stood Still). Leading the accomplished behind-the-scenes crew is 11-time Oscar®-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins (Skyfall). Academy Award® winners Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men) rewrote the screenplay from earlier drafts by William Nicholson (Les Misérables) and Richard LaGravenese (HBO’s Behind the Candelabra). Unbroken arrives in theaters on Christmas Day, 2014. www.unbrokenfilm.com  Genre: Epic Drama Cast: Jack O’Connell, Domhnall Gleeson, Miyavi, Garrett Hedlund, Finn Wittrock Directed by: Angelina Jolie Screenplay by: Joel Coen & Ethan Coen and Richard LaGravenese and William Nicholson Based on the Book by: Laura Hillenbrand Produced by: Angelina Jolie, Clayton Townsend, Matthew Baer, Erwin Stoff Executive Producers: Mick Garris, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni Watch the Trailer

    Our look back today at former Teen Stars Online stars takes us to Freddie Boath who is primarily remembered by North American audiences for his role of Alex in the 2001 film The Mummy Returns. Freddie was born on the 6 May 1991, in London, England. Freddie was a huge fan of the first film The Mummy (1999) which at that time he had claimed to have seen a whopping 58 times. His only experience before auditioning for The Mummy Returns had been lip-synching the John Travolta role in a class production of Grease. He had a previous audition setup for a part in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001) but scuttled those plans to audition for the role of Alex in The Mummy Returns. The audition paid off as he snagged the role to play adventure-loving Alex over hundreds of other hopefuls. His fearless personality convinced Stephen Sommers that he was right for the part after only a few meetings, and the film's cast and crew agreed that he is much like the brave, action-minded Alex in real life. The son of a banker father and producer mother, he attends a Catholic boys' school in London. Although he has taken weekly drama classes for several years with his older brother Jack and his little sister he had zero acting experience. The film was a big hit when released and was certainly a great popcorn action flick and it seemed a Freddie was destined to child stardom but disappeared from the scene for seven years showing up again in 2008 in the British series The Children playing Jack for three episodes. All his following work has been on TV in the UK with appearances in series such as The Bill (2009), Doctors (2010), The Pillars of the Earth for eight episodes and more recently House of Anubis as Benji Reed.

      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

    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.

Things slowed down after this for the popular child actor appearing two years later in the TV move "The Spring" and then a three year break before we next saw him in two episodes of "Third Watch" and then landing the role of Danny O'Keefe in the short lived "The O'Keefes." Over the next few year Cross kept working appearing in features such as "Running with Scissors" (2006) and "Milk" (2008). Since 2011 he has made a comeback in several features such as "Lincoln" (2012), "Last Weekend: (2013) and the upcoming "The Automatic Hate" (2015). In between the films and TV in 2003 he made his stage debut at the Williamstown Playhouse in John Guare's play "Landscape of the Body," directed by Michael Grief. He played guitar for the rock band Roostir, attended Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut in 2007 and in 2009 appeared as William 'Fred' Parsons on the British stage adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany's.

    After four seasons and 101 episodes Disney Channel ended production of the hit series "Jessie." There will still be plenty to see of the young leads in spinoff series "Bunk"d," the show is toplined by original series’ stars Peyton List, Karan Brar and Skai Jackson who will reprise their roles as of Emma, Ravi and Zuri Ross, respectively. Meanwhile the popular Cameron Boyce was off to headline Disney XD’s new live-action comedy, “Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything.” Looking back over the four seasons Jessie has been bringing entertainment into the homes of Disney channel viewers. The show is full of antics and humor good for the entire family. The setting is in New York City where a small town girl, Debby Ryan who plays Jessie, comes from Texas to be the nanny of a high profile couple. The couple has 4 children who bring an array of personality into the mix. The oldest of the 4 children, Emma, played by Peyton List, is the only biological child of Ross family. The younger three are adopted from various areas of the world as well as from far different backgrounds. Luke Ross, who is played by Cameron Boyce, was born in Detroit. Ravi Ross, played by Karan Brar, was born in India and is the newest to the Ross family. Zuri Ross, played by Skai Jackson, is the families’ most sassy member adding lots of fun to the mix. The parents, Morgan and Christina Ross, make very few appearances throughout the series. Nanny Jessie and Butler Bertram end up being the primary caretakers of this exciting brood. You can often find Jessie lecturing the parents about spending more time with their children. She is a bit outspoken, which at first the family doesn’t care too much for. However, it grows on them and each new episode Jessie seems to bring the family closer together. You can also find the family chasing after Mrs. Kipling throughout most of the episodes; Mrs. Kipling is Ravi’s pet Asian water monitor lizard. From episode to episode, you watch Jessie and the family grow as new people. Jessie becomes more confident and able to handle city life, while offering a bit of country to those around here. Bringing in a bit of country allows the Ross family to slow down and really focus on what matters, which is each other. Jessie makes many mistakes along the way and their love for her keeps them from being too hard on her, and she gives the love right back. The best thing about the family is their love for one another. Even if they are busy cracking jokes on each other, or too busy to spend time with one another, when they are all together, it is as though they’ve never been apart. Part of their celebration as a family is celebrating “Gotcha Day.” This is the anniversary of each of the child’s adoption day. They celebrate it much like a birthday and the parents roll out the red carpet and retell their story of adoption each year. While things look like they may be a little crazy during each episode, there is always a lesson viewers can take away from it. With witty humor from both the adults and the children, all family members can relate to at least one of the characters in the show. Overall the show provides lessons, love and entertainment to all those who choose to watch the show.
