Next Gen 2013: Hollywood's New Class
Larsen set his sights on the entertainment business at an early age, successfully persuading his parents (his dad is a pharmacist, his mom is a nurse) to uproot the family to Los Angeles before he entered high school.
"We had a deal: When I graduated, they could leave," he says. "Literally the day after, they left." That passion continued with Larsen launching his own management company, Elements Entertainment, at age 23.
Seven years later, the Woodbury University grad sold it to Principato Young, where he has remained as a manager to Divergent star Shailene Woodley as well as The Kings of Summer's Nick Robinson (who just booked a lead in Jurassic Park 4), Disney Channel's Austin & Ally star Ross Lynch, Kickin' It's Olivia Holt and Looper's kid star Pierce Gagnon.

FAVORITE MOVIE: The Goonies
POWER LUNCH SPOT: South Beverly Grill because I'm obsessed with their deviled eggs. It's kind of an ongoing joke with the waiters because I truly force people to try them, and then they thank me.
IN MY BIOPIC, THE ACTOR PLAYING ME WOULD BE: Neil Patrick Harris. He's inspired me in his personal life and his professional life.
