As Joseph Gordon-Levitt will already be opposing slavery as Abraham Lincoln's son, in Steven Spielberg's biopic on the president, the actor had now decided to seemingly support the practice in another role, thus keeping his slavery stance at a safe political neutral. According to Variety, the actor will re-team with his Inception co-star Leonardo Dicaprio--as well as the odd lot of Jamie Foxx, Don Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, and Christoph Waltz--in Quentin Tarantino's spaghetti-western-slavery-revenge film Django Unchained. The specifics of the part haven't been revealed, but considering Gordon-Levitt is a white guy and is not Christoph Waltz, it's a reasonably safe bet that we're going to cheer when his empathetic, Zooey Deschanel-loving everyman head gets pounded off with a hammer or whatever.
In other Joseph Gordon-Levitt news, his bike messenger thriller Premium Rush has been pushed back from January to August. God, we're going to have to wait FOREVER to find out what's on that exciting scrap of paper.
