Joseph Gordon-Levitt Video Interview INCEPTION

     July 12, 2010

Joseph Gordon-Levitt slice

One of my favorite actors is Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  While some of you might only know his work from the hit NBC show 30 Rock From the Sun, over the past decade he’s delivered some great performances in such films as The Lookout, Brick, Mysterious Skin, Stop-Loss, and I even loved his work as Cobra Commander in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.  So when I found out I’d be getting an exclusive interview with Gordon-Levitt for Inception, needless to say I was thrilled.  Thankfully, he could not have been nicer, and while my interview was set up for print (meaning just audio), he was totally on board with me using video.

During the spoiler free interview we discussed how he got involved in Inception, what he had to do to read the script, how he trained to do 99% of the stunts, his initial meeting with Christopher Nolan, what it was like to do wire work for 3 weeks, he explains how you can appreciate Inception on many levels, and he discussed future projects like Looper, Hesher, I’m With Cancer (Live With It), G.I. Joe 2, and a lot more.  It’s a great interview, so hit the jump to check it out:
