Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in the movie comedy "50/50," opposite Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick and Bryce Dallas Howard. Gordon-Levitt next stars in the action thriller "Premium Rush," directed by David Koepp, who also co-wrote the script. Gordon-Levitt recently wrapped production on "Looper," for which he reunited with his "Brick" director, Rian Johnson, and will star opposite Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt, and is currently in production on "The Dark Knight Rises," the third and final installment in the Batman series, which will be directed by Christopher Nolan. Gordon-Levitt was also recently cast as Robert Todd Lincoln in the film "Lincoln," alongside Daniel Day-Lewis and Tommy Lee Jones, which will be directed by Steven Spielberg.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in "Inception"; with Rainn Wilson and Natalie Portman in the independent drama "Hesher," which premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival; and the award-winning sleeper hit "(500) Days of Summer," opposite Zooey Deschanel. Gordon-Levitt earned Golden Globe, Independent Spirit Award and People's Choice Award nominations for his work in the latter 2009 film, which was Marc Webb's feature directorial debut.

Gordon-Levitt's broad range of film credits also include the global action hit "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," for director Stephen Sommers; Spike Lee's World War II drama "Miracle at St. Anna"; the controversial drama "Stop-Loss," in which he starred with Ryan Phillippe under the direction of Kimberly Peirce; and the crime drama "The Lookout," which marked Scott Frank's directorial debut. In addition, Gordon-Levitt has received widespread praise for his performances in such independent features as John Madden's "Killshot," with Diane Lane and Mickey Rourke; Lee Daniels' "Shadowboxer"; Rian Johnson's award-winning debut film, "Brick"; "Mysterious Skin," for writer/director Gregg Araki; and "Manic," with Don Cheadle.

Early in his career, Gordon-Levitt won a Young Artist Award for his first major role, in Robert Redford's drama "A River Runs Through It." He went on to co-star in "Angels in the Outfield," "The Juror," "Halloween H20" and "10 Things I Hate About You." Gordon-Levitt is also well known to television audiences for his starring role on NBC's award-winning comedy series "3rd Rock from the Sun." During his six seasons on the show, he won two YoungStar Awards and also shared in three Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for Outstanding Performance by a Comedy Series Ensemble. Following the series, Gordon-Levitt took a short break from acting to attend Columbia University.

Gordon-Levitt founded and directs an open collaborative production company called hitRECord.org comprised of an online community of thousands of artists from all over the world. Time magazine writes that hitRECord "has blossomed into a full-blown hive-mind of creativity. With more than 40,000 participants working together to create short films, music, art or stories, hitRECord offers a creative opportunity for fresh talent to team together and expose their art." By encouraging aspiring artists to showcase their creative work online via the site, Gordon-Levitt was named by The Huffington Post as one of the top ten Game Changers in entertainment.

The company presented evenings of short film and live entertainment at Sundance 2010 and SxSW 2010, went on a tour of six top colleges in fall 2010, published the "Tiny Book of Tiny Stories" for the holidays, will launch another college tour in spring 2010, and released a DVD/book/CD called "RECollection volume 1" in fall 2011.

A budding writer/director in the more traditional sense, as well, Gordon-Levitt adapted the Elmore Leonard short story "Sparks" into a 24-minute short film, starring Carla Gugino and Eric Stoltz. The film, which premiered in the 2009 Sundance Film Festival Shorts Competition, was the first official production to bear the hitRECord.org brand.
