Jansen Rayne Panettiere (born September 25, 1994) is an American actor. He is known for his roles in films The Perfect Game, Ice Age: The Meltdown, The Martial Arts Kid and How High 2. His elder sister is actress Hayden Panettiere.
Panettiere was born in Palisades, New York, to Lesley R. Vogel, a former soap opera actress, and Alan Lee "Skip" Panettiere, a fire department lieutenant.
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 2010. 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. He appeared with Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis and Christine Lahti, as Elliott Perry in Dustin Lance Black's play 8, a reenactment of the Perry v. Schwarzenegger trial, at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre on March 3, 2012. The performance was broadcast on YouTube to raise money for the American Foundation for Equal Rights. In 2019, Jansen guest starred in the AMC network series The Walking Dead and co-starred in MTV's How High 2.
In 2008, Panettiere was nominated for a Young Artist Award at the Young Artist Awards for Best Performance in a TV Movie, Miniseries or Special by a Leading Young Actor for The Last Day of Summer.
