So, what do you think about this actor?

He's now in everything.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0330687/

I have fond memories of him from 3rd Rock From The Sun. He's experiencing quite the career success right now.

His career peaked at Angels In The Outfield.

Actually, Olivia Wilde is in everything.

Seriously, how the heck is it even possible!! 27 IMDB entries (including several tv shows) from 2010 onward.

Enjoyed him in 50/50.

As far as I am concerned he and Tom Hardy were the only things that kept Dark Knight Rises worth watching.

Oh, he's been great since he was an elderly alien stuck in a long-haired kid's body.

Fantastic actor.

He's fun in Brick and I can't wait to watch Looper.

One of my favorite actors. I liked his acting in 500 Days of Summer, Inception, and Brick. Even though the movie overall sucked he was awesome in Hesher. I'm looking forward to seeing Looper tomorrow as I'm a Bruce Willis fan too.

You enjoyed Gandolf the body builder as he gibbered along like a know it all teenager from middle earth?

I really loved Brick and many of his other movies.

The Lookout is a great example of how well Levitt can melt into a role. Isla Fisher and Jeff Bridges both really show off thier range as well.

I can never look at Gordin Levitt without thinking that he's a bland clone of Keanu Reeves. Talking looks only, not comparing acting skills!

Jeff Daniels ≠ Jeff Bridges

Yeah, Deckard Bane was great. I liked him quite a bit. But, I liked the whole film, unlike many folks, so...

On Topic: Yeah, Brick was the first film I saw Gordon-Levitt in, and I thought it was fantastic. I haven't seen a lot of the other movies mentioned in this thread, but I ought to.

I thought 50/50, 500 Days of Summer, Inception, and Hesher were all excellent and Gordon-Levitt impressed me greatly in each and every one of them.

I'll definitely be checking out Looper.

Lookout looks interesting too.

Brick is really good. But it could have been stronger with a more interesting victim character (Like Lily from Veronica Mars) and the reason that she died was kind of lame.

Looper was terrible. What a disappointment.

I thought Looper was awesome. Best movie I've seen in a while.

Yikes. We had people walking out of our theater.

Looper was like four different movies in one. I couldn't tell whether it wanted to be a time travel movie, a horror movie, a relationship drama, or a bad 80s action movie. It tried to be all, but just couldn't pull it off. It would also introduce side plot points and then just let them drop. I have no idea who okayed that script.

Also, I thought the nature of time travel in the film started out interesting, but then got sillier and sillier.

edit - to be fair, I thought it had a lot of promise. And I was pretty into it for the first 1/3 - 1/2 of it.

I don't understand how hiding in a safe would save you from a toddler Jean Grey.
