Joseph Gordon-Levitt started off his acting career as a fairly diverse and successful child actor. And possibly one of the only cute child actors ever. Check this out;
He starred in a huge range of television and movies, including Stranger On My Land, Family Ties, Settle The Score, Murder She Wrote, even the original 90's Dark Shadows...
Changes, Hi Honey I'm Dead, Plymouth, China Beach, Quantum Leap, L.A. Law, Beethoven, A River Runs Through It, Partners, The Powers That Be, Gregory K, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Holy Matrimony, Roadflower, Angels, Roseanne, The Great Elephant Escape, The Juror, Sweet Jane, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, That 70's Show... I mean seriously, this kid was EVERYWHERE in the early 90's.
Then we got to see him alongside the wonderful Heath Ledger in 10 Things I Hate About You...
After that followed Picking Up The Pieces, Forever Lulu, The Outer Limits and Manic.
Oh and lets not forget Gordon-Levitt's long-time position (1996-2001) as the lovable Tommy Solomon in Third Rock From The Sun!
The kid practically grew up on this show!
And grow up he did... eheheheh
Joseph Gordon-Levitt first stole my ovaries in the unbelievably under-rated Disney's Treasure Planet, voicing Jim Hawkins.
From there came a stream of movies - Latter Days...
... Mysterious Skin...
... good lord.
Next was Rian Johnson's Brick, a brief cameo on TV series Numb3rs, Havoc, Shadowboxer, The Lookout...
... Stop-Loss, Miracle At St. Anna, The Brothers Bloom, Killshot, Big Breaks, 500 Days Of Summer...
... Uncertainty, Women In Trouble, G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, Hesher, Morgan M. Morgansen's Date With Destiny, Elektra Luxx, Morgan And Destiny's Eleventeenth Date: The Zeppelin Zoo...
And then BAM. Inception blew our collective mind.
Then POW. 50/50 blew our collective tear ducts.
Then WHAM. The Dark Knight Rises blew our collective geek boner.
Then BANG. Looper blew our collective mind. Again.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt will next be blowing various collective organs in Premium Rush, Lincoln and Don Jon's Addiction.
