'Rush' to Judgment

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, aka "that kid from '(500) Days of Summer" -- the only thing I've ever seen him in -- was spotted yesterday filming his latest movie, "Premium Rush," about a bike messenger who picks up a package at Columbia University and subsequently catches the attention of a dirty cop. He's cute, but that sounds like the worst movie ever.

You should see Mysterious Skin. Netflix it. It's intense, but he is friggin' amazing in it!!

I'm a huge Joseph Gordon-Levitt fan
and recommend you fire up the Netflix queue and add Mysterious Skin or The Lookout. Some of his best work is in the smaller indie films and I could also suggest Latter Days and Brick.

Hope you get a chance to enjoy them.

you never saw Mysterious Skin? it's heavy but the acting is good

I thought you had seen Latter Days? I seem to remember a post about it, but obviously I'm misremembering.

I would see a movie just because he's in it--he always seems to choose interesting projects. He has a significant role in Inception, which I finally saw last night. Get to the theater and see it!

Brick

Must see Brick. The dialogue/storytelling method is awesome and I haven't seen another movie attempt it.

Also guess you're not a John Lithgow/Jane Curtain fan or you would have seen him on "3rd Rock from the Sun" when he was much younger.

I remember him most from the Disney movie "Angels in the Outfield" and as the long-haired kid in "3rd Rock from the Sun."

Gordon-Levitt is also in INCEPTION -and steals the movie from everyone. I like him, and he's done a great number of indie films, such as BRICK mentioned above. It's a great throw back to the Raymond Chandler style mysteries.

David beat me to it, he's co-starring in Inception and he rocks! He really is a great actor, plus, I'm sure everyone else noticed his amazing package in Inception. Gotta love a hot man in tight slacks! ;)

Check out "Mysterious Skin". He plays a gay hustler. Amazing performance, hot flick.

You really should see The Lookout, Mysterious Skin and Brick - all 3 are fantastic movies with JGL in.

JGL is one of my favorite actors. Never cared for Third Rock, but I think he makes great film choices (mostly indie). I loved Mysterious Skin and 500 Days of Summer.

And although I loved Latter Days, Steve Sandoval was/is my main love of that movie. I would choose to see a movie just because JGL in it.
