First Images Of Joseph Gordon-Levitt As Nsa Whistleblower Edward Snowden

6 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Open Road Films

Oliver Stone last week started production on his biopic of Edward Snowden, the sometime CIA systems admin who leaked information to the press and revealed just how much American intelligence agencies were spying on… well, on everyone really. The star of this film is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the production today released two images of him in the role.

Well, he looks enough like him that it doesn’t matter, and Gordon-Levitt is a fine actor so I have no worries about his ability to carry off the role.

Oliver Stone on the other hand… well, his films are rather scatter shot, to put it politely. I don’t know if he’s got the discipline and focus to nail a story like this and all of its relevance and resonances. He seems happier making cameras whizz around while neon lights flicker on and off and race horses breathe fire. »

It's not due to hit theaters till December 25, but we now have our first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt as whistle-blower Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone's upcoming international thriller, Snowden. The first couple of images are fascinating because they reveal an Edward Snowden many people probably aren't familiar with. If you've read the papers and watched the news -- and devoured the fantastic Oscar-winning documentary Citizenfour -- then the version of Snowden you know is not the one you see here. But yes, long before he became the world's most famous whistle-blower, Snowden enlisted in the Us Army.  So what happened? Here's what Gordon Levitt had to say on Facebook after he posted a second image of himself as Snowden, featured below. "I...

Who’s still overdue for their first Academy Award nominations/wins?

17 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Last year, I wrote a pair of pieces looking at the folks in Hollywood who were due for their first Oscar nominations or the their first wins. At the most recent Academy Award ceremony, two of those names got moved off of the list, so I wanted to take a look back and see who’s still on those lists and what they might have coming for us this year. I’ll update the lists with some new people next month, but for now…let’s go look at if the Oscars gave us some long overdue citations. If you were paying attention, you definitely noticed two of them. As a quick refresher for you all, here are the ten names that I had down as overdue for their first nods from the Academy: 10. Channing Tatum 9. Joseph Gordon-Levitt 8. Kevin Smith 7. Jennifer Jason Leigh 6. Jeff Daniels 5. Hoyte Van Hoytema 4. Steve Carell »

Open Road Films has released this first photo from Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone’s international thriller, Snowden.

Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden, before he was a whistle-blower, Edward was an ordinary man who unquestioningly served his country.

Snowden is currently shooting in Munich, before moving to locations around the world.

Citizenfour, the documentary from filmmaker Laura Poitras, won Best Documentary Feature at the 87th Academy Awards in February. Snowden worked for the Nsa for four years, from 2009 to 2013, as a private contractor, including with Booz Allen Hamilton and Dell, and as a senior advisor for the Central Intelligence Agency.

Citizenfour is a real life thriller, unfolding by the minute, giving unprecedented access to Edward Snowden as he hands over classified documents providing evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the Nsa. (Trailer)

First Look: Joseph Gordon-Levitt gets in line as 'Snowden'

20 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Open Road Films has released the first image of Oliver Stone's upcoming biopic "Snowden" which features Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the infamous leaker Edward Snowden and, surprise, it's not what you'd expect. Much of Snowden's past has been skimmed over in public discussion.  People are aware he worked for the CIA for a time and eventually resigned before working for a Dell division contracted by the Nsa.  That's where he acquired most of the thousands of classified documents he eventually leaked to news agencies around the world.  What many don't know, however, is that earlier in his life Snowden joined the U.S. Army Reserve and underwent Special Forces training before, reportedly, breaking both legs during a training accident. His attempt to serve his country as a soldier is your first look at Gordon-Levitt as Snowden, which you can check out at the top of this post. Stone's first »
