Jansen Rayne Panettiere (born September 25, 1994) is an American television, film and voice actor. He is best known for his roles in films The Perfect Game, Ice Age: The Meltdown and The Martial Arts Kid. Jansen is the younger brother of actress Hayden Panettiere.
Jansen had a supporting role in the Disney Channel Original Movie Tiger Cruise, which starred his sister Hayden (this is one of only two productions to date in which both siblings have featured onscreen, the other being The Forger - Jansen lent his voice to Racing Stripes, in which Hayden appeared). He played the voice of Truman X in The X's. He starred as Lucas Malloy in the made-for-television Nickelodeon film The Last Day of Summer, which first showed July 20, 2007 on Nickelodeon. It was released on DVD on August 28, 2007.
His next film, The Perfect Game, was going to be released in theaters on August 8, 2008, but Lionsgate Films decided to push it back to the spring of 2009. The Perfect Game is directed by William Dear, is based on the true story of how a group of boys from Monterrey, Mexico become the first non-U.S. team to win the Little League World Series. Panettiere also co-stars with Gavin MacLeod in The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry, a film directed by Rich Christiano about faith and friendship.
