Joseph Gordon-Levitt had his break out as a teenage star on the hit 1990s sitcom “3D Rock from the Sun.” Most recently, he co-starred alongside Sacha Baron Cohen in the Oscar nominated movie “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” which was also a Netflix film. Most recently he starred in and created the television show on Apple+ “Mr. Corman.” That show had mixed reviews and was canceled after just one season.
He also recently portrayed Uber founder Travis Kalanick in the Showtime series Super Pumped.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is also set to star in a space based mystery thriller movie called Ash, in which he will play opposite Hollywood beauty Tessa Thompson. Thompson will play a woman who wakes up to find all of her crewmates have been murdered. It’s then Joseph Gordon-Levitt to the rescue, or maybe not, as he might be a threat too. Remember – it’s a thriller, so their needs to be the tension of not knowing who you can trust.
The actor can next be seen, or at least heard, playing the voice of Jiminy Cricket opposite Tom Hanks in a new Pinocchio movie due out in September.
