Joseph Gordon-Levitt Doo Doos

Today in overachieving adorableness, Joseph Gordon-Levitt sang with his mommy over at hitRECord, to mark his birthday. He says:

it was 30 years ago today, my mom started cleaning up my doo doos

He hints that fans should remix their harmonized birthday doo-doo'ing. I imagine someone(s) will take him up on it, given the online devotion.

Up next for JGL: It's quite a full slate. There's Hesher, a Sundance 2010 drama offering that's finally getting a release this spring; September's Live With It, a comedy about cancer with a great cast including Anna Kendrick and Angelica Huston; Premium Rush an action movie about a bike messenger that's aiming for January 2012; Looper his sci-fi tinged reunion with his Brick director Rian Johnson; and then a micro-indie called The Dark Knight Rises. I believe there's a kickstarter campaign you can donate to somewhere.

On a scale of 1-10, where are you in JG-L fandom?

Hesher (still); on the set of Live With It; on the set of Premium Rush

What would you give JG-L for his big day?

BM. - i'm always horrified when i realize how young Beyonce is. She's been famous forever and she never seemed like a "youngster" at any point. it's like she's a perpetual 30. ;)

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNathaniel R

I'm definitely on the JGL fandom! But to add to BM's list... Buffy Summers also turned 30 this year.

I've liked JGL ever since the baseball movie Angels in the Outfield. I loved it! And yeah 1980 trumps 1981. Love the Harry Potter reference.

My bf Carlos LOVES this guy... I'd give them a hot night together!

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermikey

i love Mikey and JGL so much. i'd do anything for either!

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercarlos

On a scale from 1-10 .... Maybe 8 - I admit - since I watched (500) Days of Summer ! The musical sequence did it maybe!

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMary Monroeee

Tommy Solomon ios 30? My how time flies.

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDavid Ehrenstein

What would I give him? Nothing appropriate for polite conversation – think Julia Roberts in her first encounter with Richard Gere in Pretty Woman while “I Love Lucy” plays in the background.

Btw 1982 is the best year to be born in. We also have better movies than 80 and 81.

Blade Runner
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Grease 2 – Pfeiffer
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered Commenter/3rtfu11

/3rtfull -- i love that you'd retitled Grease 2 "Grease 2 - Pfeiffer" the new title makes it automatically better ;)

Mary -- that does it for us all!

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNathaniel R

I have always thought he was great in all of his movie roles ... never saw the sitcom he was in.

On my scale of 1--10 ... he would be a 10+ he really is a favorite of mine.

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRick

I think Joseph Gordon Levitt is more indie than our indie king, Ryan Gosling. Big fan of both.
For his birthday, i will give him my totem, a hamburger phone (from Juno, his Inception co-star movie Ellen Page). He can’t touch it though, it will change the purpose of it. :)

Ole Marsha was born in '80, so I think that settles the debate.

However, I find myself judging year not by who was born that year, but by what won the BP Oscar. In this case it's "Ordinary People" unfortunately (though I don't know if that beats 81's "Chariots of Fire".)

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMarsha Mason

Marsha -- if you were born in 80, you can't call yourself "Ole" yet i think. at least not for another 4 or 5 years ;)

Rick -- I always loved him but i tried to interview him once and it did not go well. Maybe it was an off day for me or for him or for both or ... well, it was not a good interview. But i still love him as an actor, minus Inception in which Tom Hardy blew him off the screen. How did JG-L let that happen? That said, JG-L gets Inception's best scene so it all comes out in the wash. i'm looking forward to all these new movies.

My dial goes to 11 for JGL.

February 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterErik Anderson

I'd give him an OTK birthday spanking.
