America's favorite smart-mouthed kid turned 21 over the weekend. He was only 5 years old when he starred in Jerry Maguire. I can't imagine what it would be like to be 5 and working with Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger. Although I'm sure he had no idea how famous his co-stars were at the time. At least he has some sweet bragging rights for his resume!
After seeing the news that JL is all grown up, I started thinking about movies that I've seen 100 times (give or take) and almost always watch when I catch them on TV:
*the TV versions of all of these movies don't do them justice but I still enjoy quoting them when I catch them on a channel, even though other people watching the movies with me do not appreciate my commentary.
Jerry Maguire (duh)
The Breakfast Club
Dumb and Dumber
Garden State (awesome soundtrack)
I could go on...but you get the point. I think JL and JTT should get together and star in a reality show about finding new work now that they are all grown up. You're probably thinking, "didn't A&E try that a few years ago with two other child actors by the same name?" Yes, but I would actually watch this version.
