It’s always a good day when an actor you like who has been working tirelessly for years finally gets noticed and gets lots of work. After (500) Days of Summer Joseph Gordon-Levitt has finally been spotted as an actor worth investing in.
This year he will be playing a major role in the much buzzed about Inception playing a character who has fight scenes in a revolving set, I cannot wait. He has also recently been filming a comedy about cancer, taking over from James McAvoy when he dropped out to have a baby.
Just yesterday we also learned that Gordon-Levitt is negotiating roles in two action films, Premium Rush and Looper. Looper being particularly exciting as it will reunite him with Rian Johnson who wrote and directed Brick the modern noir made for next to nothing. Despite what some sites say this is not a new genre for Gordon-Levitt having starred in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Uncertainty just last year.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a brilliant actor and the more roles he has the better. With any luck one day he’ll be all big and famous but won’t turn his back on independent cinema.
