The Emmy-winning actor’s new movie The Night Before tells the story of three friends Ethan (JGL), Isaac (Seth Rogan) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) who spend the night in New York City on Christmas Eve and their journey of attending the Holy Grail of Christmas parties, The Nutcracker Ball.
On a recent interview with The Today Show, JGL jokingly said about the R-rated film that “It’s good for families because it’s a cautionary tale.” He also talked about some of his favorite Thanksgiving traditions with his family saying “We make guacamole and Armenian cake at my house. My mom always makes Armenian cake even though we aren’t Armenian, and we just eat until we fall asleep.” Sounds like a pretty solid Thanksgiving celebration at the Gordon-Levitt household.
Also coming up in 2016, JGL will be playing CIA employee Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone‘s film Snowden. This film tells the true story of Edward Snowden and how he released thousands of classified documents to the press. JGL is already rumored to portray Snowden realistically and showcase an amazing performance.
