One of my favorite actors is Joseph Gordon-Levitt. While some of you might only know his work from the hit NBC show 30 Rock From the Sun, over the past decade he’s delivered some great performances in such films as The Lookout, Brick, Mysterious Skin, Stop-Loss, and I even loved his work as Cobra Commander in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. So when I found out I’d be getting an exclusive interview with Gordon-Levitt for Inception, needless to say I was thrilled. Thankfully, he could not have been nicer and while my interview was set up for print (meaning just audio), he was totally on board with me using video.
During the spoiler free interview we discussed how he got involved in Inception, what he had to do to read the script, how he trained to do 99% of the stunts, his initial meeting with Christopher Nolan, what it was like to do wire work for 3 weeks, he explains how you can appreciate Inception on many levels, and he discussed future projects like Looper, Hesher, I'm With Cancer (Live With It), G.I. Joe 2, and a lot more. It's a great interview so hit the jump to check it out:

Featuring an all-star cast that's more impressive than The Expendables, Red stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker, Karl Urban, Richard Dreyfuss, Julian McMahon, Brian Cox, and Ernest Borgnine. Based on the graphic novel Red (Retired Extremely Dangerous), the movie is about a group of retired black ops agents that get back together to try and figure out why some former agents are getting killed. Anyway, I was recently in NYC for the press junket and I was able to sit down with Helen Mirren. During the interview we talked about whether or not her fans are ready to watch her fire a 50 caliber machine gun (I think they are), are there any challenges working in different genres, working with the rest of the cast, and she gave me an update on how Arthur was going with Russell Brand. Hit the jump to see what she had to say and make sure to see Red this weekend:

Featuring an all-star cast that's more impressive than The Expendables, Red stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker, Karl Urban, Richard Dreyfuss, Julian McMahon, Brian Cox, and Ernest Borgnine. Based on the graphic novel Red (Retired Extremely Dangerous), the movie is about a group of retired black ops agents that get back together to try and figure out why some former agents are getting killed. Anyway, a few days ago I was in NYC for the press junket and I was able to sit down with Bruce Willis and Karl Urban to talk about the film. During the very relaxed interview, Willis and Urban talked to me about making Red, using fake names at Starbucks and on dressing room doors, filming on location, their fight scene, and Willis talked about why he wanted to make Rian Johnson's Looper and Urban talked about Pete Travis' Judge Dredd. Finally, one last thing before watching...while my interview was supposed to end after three minutes, you'll see Willis tell me to keep asking questions even though the person running the interview wanted it to stop. I've never had a big movie star tell me to keep asking questions after my time was over. For my first time getting to ask Bruce Willis some questions on camera...it was very cool. Bruce Willis and Karl UrbanThe interview starts off with Bruce Willis and I talking about how we change our names if we go to Starbucks...Karl Urban says that Willis would change his name on his trailer everydayDid they know when they were filming Red would turn out to be such a fun movie. Willis talks about how great of a job director Robert Schwentke didDid they have a lot of friends that wanted to visit the set due to the cast They talk about the challenging locations they filmed at Willis and Urban have a great fight scene in Red.
