Catch him while you can--this little boy is growing up fast.

Catch him while you can--this little boy is growing up fast.
At fourteen years old and with several feature films already under his belt, Josh Hutcherson's not exactly a helpless fledgling. The scruffy-haired star of Bridge to Terabithia has captured the hearts of young moviegoers around the world with his endearing boy-next-door charm, but during his short career he's also managed to showcase a genuine passion for acting that's catching the eye of older generations as well.

But if you want to catch a glimpse of this future star before he loses his childhood innocence, just grab a kid and head to the theater. Along with Bridge to Terabithia, he'll be starring in Firehouse Dog (opening April 4th), and Journey 3D, a science fiction project based on the Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth.
