There’s nothing scarier than a young boy who turns creepy after the birth of his baby sister. In Joshua, Jacob Kogan nails the part of a genius turned demon child. When OK! caught up with him recently at NYC’s Regency Hotel, the 12-year-old blew us away. ‘I had a screening for my friends, and most of them couldn’t take it seriously because they knew me too well. They couldn’t think ëoh, it’s Joshua’ ? the whole time they were thinking ëoh, it’s Jacob Kogan.” But some of them got really freaked out at all the disturbing stuff.’When he’s not scaring the pants off moviegoers, the multi-talented New Yorker can be found playing music in a band called Flake, which includes their drummer, Freud, who is the great-great grandson of Sigmund Freud.’I play guitar and sing for that band. It’s great. Whenever we have practice one a week, it’s a very productive thing to do. We have six songs ? a seventh one in the making. They’re three of my best friends, and we just have such a good time together during these practices. We have done a couple gigs at school and at a place called the Sugar Bar.’Be on the look out for this rising star.By Valerie NomePhoto: Wireimage.com
