Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rainn Wilson Cast in Hesher with Natalie Portman

Cute Duo Join Natalie Portman in Indie Drama Hesher

To sort of steal a line from Zoolander, this casting news makes me think, "That Joseph Gordon-Levitt is so hot right now." He's currently the talk of the independent film town thanks to the good buzz surrounding his upcoming movie 500 Days of Summer, and he just booked a role in Christopher Nolan's next project. Now, he and Rainn Wilson have signed up for a movie titled Hesher that already has Natalie Portman on board as a star and producer. The Hollywood Reporter classifies this flick as a dramedy, and here's how it describes the plot:

The story centers on a loser twentysomething who invades the life of an awkward 13-year-old who is living with a pill-popping father and grandmother. Gordon-Levitt is playing the title character, a good and bad influence on the boy's life. Wilson is the dad trying to keep his family together after the death of his wife.

Portman plays a supermarket worker the kid falls for.

First of all, I didn't know what a "hesher" was until I looked it up online. I feel so behind the times. Also, I'm with Vulture on this point: "Dwight Schrute popping pills?! So, so wrong." Still, this film sounds cute and totally up my alley. What say you? Are you glad to see Gordon-Levitt booking more roles?
