Joseph Gordon-Levitt — perhaps best known as young Tommy in the 90’s sitcom Third Rock From The Sun — has completed his transition to adult actor.
Gordon, now 28, will next star in Hesher, an indie drama being directed by Spencer Susser.
The film focuses on a loser twentysomething (Gordon-Levitt) who injects himself into the life of an awkward 13-year-old named T.J. who is living with a pill-popping father (Rainn Wilson) and grandmother. Natalie Portman –who’s also producing the movie — plays a supermarket worker for whom the kid falls for after she saves him from a bully.
The movie is currently shooting in Los Angeles.
Gordon-Levitt also stars in this summer’s (500) Days of Summer as well as G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and recently booked a lead role in Christopher Nolan’s Inception.
