I’m relatively comfortable with this Ranker.com piece called “The 7 Most Annoying Kids in Action Movie History ” because I agree with 83.3% of it — simple. Except I’d put The Phantom Menace‘s Jake Lloyd at the top of the roster. The list includes Edward Furlong in Terminator 2, Jonathan Ke Quan in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Joseph Mazzello and Ariana Richards in Jurassic Park, the wussy Rupert Grint from the Harry Potter films, Shia LeBeouf as Mutt in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and Dakota Fanning in War of the Worlds. (Fanning is quite good, however, in Tony Scott‘s Man on Fire.)
My disagreement, of course, is in Ranker thinking about LeBeouf as a kid — he’s been a young dude all along.
