Joseph Gordon-Levitt Defeats Spinning Hallways Only To Be Bloodied Filming Premium Rush
Thereís no other actor in Hollywood Iíd rather watch right now than Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Unless of course, heís in a G.I. Joe movie. But take his disastrous turn as Cobra Commander out of the equation and heís put together a string of brilliant performances in some of the best movies in recent memory. Most of you have already seen him in Inception, but if you missed him in Brick, The Lookout, or 500 Days of Summer get moving on that Netflix login right now.
So whatís next for JGL? For some reason heís doing a bike messenger movie.
Bike messenger movies are usually just a notch below bike riding movies which are themselves a rung below motorcycle movies (Easy Rider excepted and Torque unfortunately remembered), but you have to believe Levitt has his reasons for starring in writer/director David Koeppís Premium Rush. Maybe he saw Ghost Town, which was far better than anyone could have expected. Whatever JGLís reasons for doing it, apparently heís really pedaling hard on set. So hard and so fast, in fact, that he slammed his bike into the back of a cab while filming and ended up flying through the vehicleís rear window.
On his tumblr page JGL posted this rather grisly image:
Itís accompanied by a video in which Levitt acts as if itís no big deal, laughs it off in fact. But apparently he ended up in some sort of real wreck. So now we know: Joseph Gordon-Levitt does his own pedaling and at least Premium Rush doesnít have him wearing those awful spandex bike pants. There you have it, your first look at whatís up with Premium Rush. Right now, a lot of blood.
