Hayden Christensen Birthday Predictions


Happy Birthday Hayden!

Hayden is one of the good guys and we want to wish him the best of everything today on his birthday and in the years to come.

Besides being an interesting and talented actor he has stayed true and focused on his work and being grounded in his family life away from the bright lights of Hollywood.

Hayden, you have fans of all ages from around the world who support and admire you and wish for you a very long and prosperous career.

So here are some predictions for our Birthday Guy:

One Day we'll hear these words:

Winner for Best Actor
Winner Best Director
Winner for Best Screenplay
Winner Best Writer

And More Predictions:

We will hear you sing and play guitar and/or piano on screen someday.

You will not play the role of a monk in a monastery. (All the ladies out there applaud.)

You will do a romantic comedy that will be the envy of Steve Carrel, Zack Braff and Jim Carrey.

Piggy pals Buddy and Petunia will learn to roll over and play dead. (with their little tails wagging with delight)

There's a Hitchcock remake in your future.

Hitchcock won't direct.

Next time you and Jake Gyllenhaal are up for the same role, you'll get the part.

Jake will direct.

George Lucas will call. It won't have anything to do with a lightsaber. Something about needing advice about a tractor at Skywalker Ranch.

Hayden Christensen will not get one single speeding ticket in his next Bullrun rally.


Happy Birthday Hayden!!


I'm a fan and you're a fan so you're welcome to add your birthday wishes and predictions below.

Jumper Sequel Seems Likely

Hayden Christensen may yet again be a teleporter if the Internet Movie Database's info is accurate. While searching earlier today for news on director Doug Liman, I found Jumper 2 listed on IMDB as one of Hayden's upcoming projects.

The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) has added Jumper 2 to it's movie pages and shows a projected release date of 2011. IMDB's status for the film is "announced" and "in development" and was last updated March 12, 2008. No cast is listed but listed are director, Doug Liman and writers Steven Gould (novel) and Simon Kinberg. You can keep track of Jumper 2 by clicking here to go to IMDB.

The Toronto Star reported earlier this year that Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Bell had all signed for two sequels, which will only happen if Jumper is a box office success.

The Jumper 2 Message Board is also online and active at IMDB and you'll find a permanent IMDB link on Hayden Christensen Fan News in the right column of the main site for handy access to Jumper 2 and all of Hayden's movie pages on IMDB.
