Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Star in Premium Rush, Looper 2010-05-04 11:30:00

Double the Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Double the Fun

If you're a fan of the adorably geeky side of Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Tom Hansen, anyone?), you might not want to hold your breath for the latest news in the land of JGL. The actor is circling two new movie roles — but they're both thrillers. The first is called Premium Rush, where Gordon-Levitt would play a bike messenger who finds himself in the middle of a police chase when he picks up a suspicious package. The second is a futuristic sci-fi called Looper, with JGL as an assassin sent back in time to kill — wait for it — himself.

I count myself among the many fans of Gordon-Levitt, so I'm all for seeing more of him any way I can. That said, I'm kinda skeptical of his future as an established action star when he shines even brighter when he can really showcase his acting talent. If wanting to see JGL pursuing more serious dramas (or, you know, singing and dancing) is wrong, then maybe I don't want to be right.

I'm down for seeing him in an action/thriller. The sci-fi one sounds awesome (slightly Terminator-esque with the time travel bit), but I'm a sucker for sci-fi!

I love JGL so I think I would see him in just about anything but I do like the adorably geeky side. 10 Things I Hate About You is one of my favorite movies and he was really cute in it. I also really enjoyed (500) Days of Summer. I highly recommend it! If wanting to see more of the adorably geeky side of JGL (maybe more than the actiony side?) is wrong then I don't think I want to be right either . . . ;)
