Lerman had a passion for movies from a young age, though he started acting "just for fun" and "to do something to get out of school." He began auditioning for roles in the late 1990s, and first appeared in commercials. He made his film debut in 2000's "The Patriot," playing William Martin, one of the children of Mel Gibson's character. The same year, he appeared in another Mel Gibson film, "What Women Want," playing Gibson's character as a child. In 2001's "Riding in Cars with Boys," he played the son of Drew Barrymore's character. Lerman has stated that while appearing in his earliest roles as a child, he did not have "any conscious awareness of what I was doing or what was going on" and "didn’t have a good experience."
In 2003, Lerman played nine-year-old Luke Chandler in the CBS made-for-television film "A Painted House," based on the early life of author John Grisham and set in Black Oak, Arkansas in the early 1950s. For the role, he was nominated for the Young Artist Award for Best Performance by a Leading Young Actor in a television production, and tied with Calum Worthy for the win. Lerman was nominated for another Young Artist Award for his performance in "Jack and Bobby," tying with Jack DeSena for the win.

The movie was filmed in 2009 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and was released in February 2010. Lerman has stated that he was not familiar with the book series when he received the script. During his teenage years, Lerman and his family had viewed his acting work as just a "hobby" before college; his parents had only become more comfortable with acting as a career in 2010, the year of Percy Jackson's release. In August 2010, Lerman appeared in "Change the Odds," a public service announcement video for the Stand Up to Cancer charity; the video also featured Dakota Fanning, Zac Efron, Andrew Garfield and other actors.
