career :

Jeremy started auditioning for roles as soon as he landed in Los Angeles. One of the first auditions was for the film ‘Hearts in Atlantis.’ He finally made his acting debut in 2001, with a supporting role in the psychological thriller ‘Frailty.’ Jeremy played the younger version of the lead character in the film. The film was a critical and commercial success.
The same year, he made his TV debut with a single-episode role in the series ‘Raising Dad.’ He then made a guest appearance in the series ‘ER.’ He also appeared in the 2001 TV film ‘Murphy’s Dozen.’
In 2002, he appeared in a coming-of-age drama titled ‘Local Boys,’ playing the lead role of ‘Skeeter Dobson.’ The film was a critical success but received a limited release. Jeremy ended 2002 with a key role in the TV film ‘Just a Dream.’
2003 turned out to be a career-defining year for Jeremy, as he auditioned and got selected for the titular role in the fantasy–adventure film ‘Peter Pan,’ directed by PJ Hogan. Jeremy was 13 years old then, and he was chosen to play ‘Peter Pan’ in spite of rumors that an adult would play the role.
Jeremy performed almost all of his stunts in the film himself. He had always been a sports enthusiast, and that helped him. The film received good reviews from critics but was a box-office disappointment. Thus, the plans for the sequel were stalled. However, Jeremy’s performance was appreciated, and he won several awards and nominations for his role.
Following this, Jeremy won the lead role in a 2005 TV film titled ‘Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life.’ The film dealt with the issue of porn addiction among teens. It was a critical success.
In 2004, Jeremy bagged the lead role of ‘Pete Young’ in the TV drama ‘Clubhouse.’ Despite Jeremy’s solid performance and the series’ above-average critical ratings, the series was canceled and was not renewed for a second season.
Jeremy played the lead role in the comedy film ‘The Sasquatch Gang.’ The teen drama premiered at the ‘Slamdance Film Festival,’ where it won a few awards. The film received an average critical response upon its release in the US.
He then starred in the film ‘An American Crime,’ where he played a supporting role. The film did not receive a theatrical release and was featured on ‘Showtime.’ It was later released on DVD. Jeremy also made a guest appearance in the police-procedural series ‘CSI: Miami.’As most of his films failed to meet box-office expectations, Jeremy received more supporting roles than lead roles. The 2009 coming-of-age drama ‘Calvin Marshall’ featured him as ‘Caselli.’
In 2010, he appeared in the film ‘Death and Cremation,’ which was a horror–thriller film. Jeremy also appeared in films such as ‘Soul Surfer,’ ‘Excision,’ and ‘Hiding.’
He played the lead role of ‘Tyler’ in the comedy thriller ‘The Culling’ in 2013. He also appeared in the horror–thriller film ‘Animal.’
In 2014, he played a supporting role in the “found-footage style” disaster film ‘Into the Storm’ and then appeared in a lead role in the film ‘The Squeeze.’ His last on-screen performance has been in the thriller ‘Billionaire Ransom.’
