8 Reasons You Should See Don Jon, In Gifs
Remember that amiable, guiltless boy that starred in Angels In the Outfield as the baseball team’s improbable good luck charm? He’s now making his directorial debut with a film largely about sex and pornography.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s expansive oeuvre—as an actor, writer, modern variety show director—grows once again this Friday with the premiere of his 2013 Sundance Film Festival selection, Don Jon. Gordon-Levitt directs and stars in the new film as a porn-obsessed New Jerseyan who may have found the antidote to his shameful addiction in the form of two dissimilar potential lovers, played by Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore. Here are 8 reasons you should check out Don Jon, opening nationwide Friday, September 27.

Tony Danza. TONY DANZA.
JGL takes part in some car karaoke of “Good Vibrations,” and gets caught doing that, too.
But that doesn’t stop him.
And then Nicholas Cage shows up for no reason at all
