Brandon T. Jackson Lands Another Movie Role

The actor-comedian, known for his recent role opposite Ben Stiller and Robert Downey, Jr. in 'Tropic Thunder,' will co-star with Logan Lerman in the adventure-fantasy film directed by Chris Columbus.

The Hollywood Reporter states that the film is about the titular schoolboy (Lerman) whose world is turned upside-down when he discovers that his father is actually the Greek god Poseidon. The story kicks off with Percy becoming the prime suspect when Zeus' master lightning bolt is stolen. The boy has just 10 days to find and return the stolen property to bring peace to the warring gods.

Jackson will play Percy's best friend, Grover, a satyr. Fox 2000 is looking to place a number of big-name thesps in the smaller roles of the gods. Shooting is scheduled to begin in April in Europe.

Jackson's other film credits include 'Roll Bounce' with Bow Wow and 'This Christmas' with Chris Brown and Idris Elba.
