Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Play Edward Snowden In This Controversial Biopic

22 September 2014 5:39 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Hollywood is full of stories about child stars who made it big young, then flamed out and met tragic ends. Inception star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is not one of those cautionary tales. The actor, who got his big break as a fresh-faced kid on television series like Roseanne and Third Rock from the Sun, has made quite a career for himself in years since those shows went off the air. And the latest industry buzz has the actor potentially playing one of the most controversial figures in recent American history: Nsa whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Deadline reports that Oliver Stone is keenly interested in getting Gordon-Levitt to headline his new bipoic about the former CIA system administrator. Snowden became a hot topic in 2013 after divulging the extent of governmental surveillance in the wake of 9/11, eventually forcing him to seek asylum in Russia. With filming set to begin this December in Munich, time »

Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung


Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

It’s been nearly ten years since we last visited Basin City and some feel that the decade absence has dampened a lot of the hype and interest in its sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But the directing team of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller were not going to let that stop them as they bring perhaps the most popular book from the Sin City cannon to the big screen with some old faces, some new »

Michael Alig was released from prison today.

It’s official! The Comeback will return to HBO this fall for a six-episode run. “In the new episodes, HBO said, Valerie will continue her search to attain the spotlight, but this time around it illuminates a whole new series of problems when she achieves the visibility she wants.”

Chris Colfer talks about writing tomorrow’s episode of Glee. “He was only given two guidelines for his script: ‘I couldn’t break up with Blaine and I couldn’t kill anyone.’”

Notre Dame sends a message of support.

John Lithgow Says He Turned Down David Cronenberg's 'The Fly' Because It Was "Icky" And "Grotesque"

5 May 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Considering he's done everything from playing the alien dad in "Third Rock From The Sun," to being a delightfully deranged serial killer in "Dexter," to guiding Bigfoot through "Harry And The Hendersons" (and tons of other roles, obviously), the idea of the multi-talented, always busy John Lithgow playing the lead in David Cronenberg's "The Fly" isn't so farfetched. And it seems that part was his back in the day, but he turned it down. Why? It was too gross. Chatting with In Magazine (via Global News), the actor revealed that even though he was encouraged to take the part, he ultimately declined. “My agent wanted me to do 'The Fly' and I didn’t want to do it. I just finished another project and I was exhausted, and I found it such an icky story," Lithgow said. “I told my agent I just didn’t want to play something so grotesque. »

Birthday Gallery: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Turns 33

17 February 2014 11:28 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

We first got to know Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a child star, through his many commercials, such feature films as Angels In The Outfield, and most notably his TV appearances, including a six-season stint as alien Tommy on Third Rock From The Sun.

He left acting for a few years to attend college, and he came back with a renewed vigor, focusing on gritty independent films and character studies. His role in 2004′s Mysterious Skin as a gay prostitute completely redefined his career, and is one of the great performances of the last decade.

Joseph has maintained an eclectic career, appearing in beloved indies Latter Days and 500 Days Of Summer (for which he received a Golden Globe nomination), and big-budget fare G.I. Joe and The Dark Knight Rises. Last year he wrote, directed, and starred in the well-received Don Jon.

We don’t know what he’ll bring us in the future, »
