Back in June we got our first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his new look in an extended trailer for his sci-fi film Looper. Today we get a better, close look at JGL’s new … face. In Looper, JGL plays a younger version of Bruce Willis (well, his character anyway) and as a result, JGL’s face was made to more closely resemble Willis’s face. Click below to see JGL on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Cineplex magazine to see just how much they messed with perfection to make Joseph look more like Bruce for the film.
OMG, creepy, right? Without getting too much into the details of Looper it’s important to note that JGL’s character must battle Bruce Willis’s character in the film … Bruce goes back in time to face off with his younger self. I mean, obvs, there is more to the story but for this post, that’s about all you need know. That is why JGL has to be made to resemble Bruce Willlis:
I must admit, I’m intrigued by this film. The fact that it stars JGL is a big draw for me (even tho I’m not a huge Bruce Willis fan). I have to say, tho, that looking at Joe like this is very disconcerting. It’s as if someone took a masterpiece of art — Michaelangelo’s David or perhaps Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa — and decided to alter it significantly. I think we can all agree that JGL looks pretty damn good the way he is … but I can respect the dude for changing his face in this way for a film role. What do y’all think? Does Looper look/sound like a film that you’d like to see?
