“You’re playing someone that everybody in the world has seen before. It’s a little different than playing a fictitious character.” – Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Tony Danza was always impressed with Joseph Gordon-Levitt—even back when they appeared together in Angels in the Outfield in 1994. Now Gordon-Levitt is directing his old co-star in the new film, Don Jon.
Bruce Willis: “Why you go to the movies is the same reason that we like to make movies: It’s all about human emotion”
In Looper, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is only pretending to play the younger version of Bruce Willis, with Willis traveling back in time to confront his “younger self.” But if Willis could really go back in time, would he do anything differently?
Premium Rush aside, Joseph Gordon-Levitt appears in two of the best-rated action films of 2012, The Dark Knight Rises and Looper, and also stars in the likely Oscar-contending drama Lincoln due out in November. In an interview with New York magazine, Gordon-Levitt talks about the makeup he had to wear to portray a younger version of Bruce Willis in Looper and what inspired him to direct his first film, which is due out next year.
Emily Blunt talks ‘Looper’ and Choosing Her Parts: “It’s very deliberate though I wouldn’t say that I strategize any role I do”
Emily Blunt is one of the many actresses working today that aren’t satisfied by repeatedly starring as giggly girls in lighthearted comedies. Following in the footsteps of her Devil Wears Prada co-star Meryl Streep, Blunt has taken on a variety of roles in many different genres, including a major role in Looper, a sci-fi movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.
In order to play a younger version of Bruce Willis’ character in Looper, Joseph Gordon-Levitt underwent three hours of makeup each day before filming. While I personally don’t think the changes are that drastic (I mean, it isn’t like he has to look like the Elephant Man to play Bruce Willis), Gordon-Levitt talked about transforming into Willis and what audiences might discover when watching Looper.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Talks About his Stunt Doubles on ‘Premium Rush’ and Getting Injured During the Shoot
While I like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and really like Michael Shannon and films set in New York City, I’m not sure how much I’m going to get into Premium Rush, a movie featuring Gordon-Levitt as a bike courier in New York. But I’m sure the film will be filled with a lot of great action sequences that we haven’t seen before since there aren’t many action bike movies, although I’d love to see a flying bike tackle take-down like on USA’s old Pacific Blue series.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Giving Back to Artists and What Draws Him to Projects: “Variety is what keeps things interesting”
You just can’t predict show business. I would have never thought that the goofy long-haired kid from 3rd Rock from the Sun would grow into one of the more impressive actors of the last several years, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt constantly brings it to every film role he has.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of today’s busiest actors and has also been showcasing his talents behind the camera.
Here is the full panel for Rian Johnson’s upcoming film, Looper. I’ve been looking forward to this for a while and all the footage they showed in Hall H looked pretty damn great
