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.
