Joseph Gordon Levitt started out in a sitcom (Third Rock From The Sun) and now for his directorial debut he’s reaching out to a sitcom legend and giving him a rare film role. Variety reports that Tony Danza has joined the cast of the untitled movie, which was formerly known as Don Jon’s Addiction. It’s not actually the first time they’ve worked together, as they both appeared in the 1994 comedy Angels in the Outfield.
As well as directing, Gordon-Levitt will play a womanising porn addict, who goes on a quest to become less selfish. Scarlett Johansson will play his girlfriend and Julianne Moore is portraying a widow who the main character meets at night school. Tony Danza will play the lothario’s father, who is obsessed with sports and doesn’t pay enough attention to his children.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt will direct from his own original screenplay, with production set to commence next month in Los Angeles.
