Just in time for Father’s Day, writer/director Joseph Gordon-Levitt revealed this clip from his upcoming debut, Don Jon. With a promising trailer for what will be, at the very least, an uniquely fresh story, Gordon-Levitt looks like he’s captured some great performances from his cast.
I really love how he cast Danza as his on-screen dad in Don Jon, which as you may know, is the second time they’ve played father-son on screen, the first time being Angels in The Outfield.
Don Jon co-stars Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, Glenne Headly, Brie Larson, and Rob Brown. In this new clip from the film, father and son riff about Jon’s girlfriend, Scarlett Johansson, in a way only Jersey Shoremen can.
Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old-fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to “pull” a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn’t compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old-fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she’s determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old-fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
