Josh Finds Strange, New Worlds
After working as voice talent, Hutcherson started up on a series of action films that definitely used both his body and voice. In 2006, he showed up in Zathura, Jon Favreau’s adaption of Chris Van Allsburg’s children’s adventure story about a board game that shoots its players into an outer-space adventure. In 2007, he starred in Bridge to Terabithia, an adaption of Katherine Paterson’s classic of children’s fiction. Playing a fragile young boy who lives his emotional life in the drawings he makes, Hutcherson got to show both his action chops and emotional range here. In the effects-laden adventure yarn Journey to the Center of the Earth (adapted from Jules Verne’s sci-fi classic), Hutcherson plays the nephew of Brendan Fraser, a science professor out to prove his much ridiculed theory about what exists inside our planet.
