Percy Jackson is back in the all-new, big-screen adventure Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and its stars Logan Lerman and Alexandra Daddario fill in ET on how their lives have changed since the release of the first movie in the series three years ago, plus weigh in on celebrity crushes!
After Selena Gomez publicly revealed Logan to be her "celebrity crush" (which he calls "very flattering), Logan sidestepped the opportunity to name his own crush, but Alexandra singled out a few of her own, including James McAvoy, Henry Cavill -- and Steve Martin! Watch the video…
The follow-up to Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief finds the demi-god son of Poseidon and his friends from Camp Half-Blood on a quest to find the fabled and magical Golden Fleece in the uncharted waters of the Sea of Monsters (known to humans as the Bermuda Triangle). There, they battle terrifying creatures, an army of zombies and the ultimate evil in order to save the world!
In theaters now, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is based on the book by Rick Riordan, and both Logan and Alexandra say that this sequel skews much closer to the book's storyline this time around.
"It's much more tonally similar to what the book is," explains Logan, and Alexandra agrees, saying, "[The filmmakers] really wanted to be more true to the books and I think that fans will love that. … I think that they did a really great job doing justice to the book."
So, will we see Logan back as Percy Jackson for a third round?
"Yeah, hell yeah!" says Logan enthusiastically. "It's all really dependant on the success of the film and if fans like it … but I think that fans are really going to like this film."
