On Saturday, the program The Nerdist premieres its new season on BBC America channel. Are only ten episodes, where guests are interviewed, usually on some topic that involves the nerd world. Joe will be there this time, but there is still no defined when the episode will be broadcast. In the meantime, check out the pictures of his participation:
During the SxSW festival, Joe talked to ComingSoon.net and gave us some more information about their involvement in Sin City 2 and his experience in filming. The scenes of him have been recorded thanks to the unique style of recording director Robert Rodriguez. For those not familiar with his work, during the first film most actors who shared scenes together, recorded separately set through the technique of "chroma key". It was the same in the second.
Looking back, Joe plays a new character named Jonny in the segment "The Long Bad Night," which was not based on any existing copies of comics. Read below what Joe said:
That's interesting. They wanted a film to which fans of the comic could still look for something new and unexpected, so they added a story. I remember being very intrigued by it and I was expecting something, 'Oh, it would be very interesting to have the comics to base myself as an actor,' but I had not. I loved doing the movie. I mean, Robert Rodriguez is a guy whose movies I have liked for a long time and he's overflowing creativity.
Joe also mentioned that even Jonny being a new character and a new story, your character is present in the world of Sin City and acts with other characters.
I saw Bruce and Mickey (Rourke), and we have a scene together, and Jessica Alba. I was so excited!
Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For debut October 4th in the U.S..
During his participation in SxSW, Joe gave the interview below. He talks about the hardest part of making the film, what people should do to overcome connection issues portrayed in the film, his character would make Jon the premiere and why people who idolize her other character in 500 Days of Summer, Part Tom Hansen, attend Don Jon.

During this week, we published about a possible title change in the film that debuted as director Joe. Don Jon's Addiction changed to a shorter version: Don Jon. Joe posted a text on your Facebook confirming this suspicion and further explaining his reasons for the change. Read the translation below:
As you may have heard, I wrote and directed a movie last year and it is being released this year. Which is completely crazy and I still can not believe it. Anyway, I'm posting this to let everyone know that I'm changing the title. Now called "DON JON". I decided to change, first of all, because Don Jon is short and simple, and if you know me, you know I like simplicity. Second, it seemed to me that the old title "Don Jon's Addiction" was passing people some of the subject of the film. People were assuming that it was a film about sex addiction and pornography, which is not true at all. Talking it would be like saying "The Maltese Falcon" (title in Brazil, 'Maltese Falcon') is a film about a statue of a falcon. Don Jon is a comedy about how men and women treat each other, and how the media we consume can create unrealistic expectations we place on others. That's why the story is set around a relationship between a young man (played by me) who watch too much porn and a young woman (played by Scarlett) who attends many romantic comedies. It is a topic that I personally find fascinating and funny.
He also commented on the end of it all that production for the trailer is starting now and soon more will be disclosed. We'll be waiting!
Next month, Joe will receive the award for Breakthrough Filmmaker of the Year at an event called CinemaCon. The convention is not open to the public, but a meeting owners of theaters and cinemas and people from the film industry. Basically, it comes to distributors showing the owners of cinemas which are the movies that are scheduled for this year. The prize that Joe should receive its direction in Don Jon's Addiction. Read below what the director Mitch Neuhauser said the agreement on this:
Having already been embraced by moviegoers and critics alike with its diverse list of acting credits, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is sure to establish itself as one of the most interesting new directors currently in theaters after its release in the direction of Don Jon's Addiction.
The convention takes place from 15th to 18th April in Las Vegas.
This week, the 8th to March 16th, the festival takes place South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. According to information on the event website, Jon Don appears during the festival, no date set yet. Check out all the views by clicking here .
It seems that the film has a title change: Don Jon's Addiction, becomes only Don Jon. Probably the reason for the change was that the word "addiction" (in English, 'addiction') has a negative connotation, which may influence the release of the film. At the festival, Joe should give new information about debuts in theaters, new name, censorship and trailer during the press conference.
The blog of the New York Times published an article commenting on the post-Oscar Vanity Fair party and a piece of it talked about Joe. Check the translation below:
Joseph Gordon-Levitt stayed up late, talking to his new friend Daniel Radcliffe, with whom he made a musical performance at the opening ceremony. Mr. Gordon-Levitt said he had been approached by television producers after he was host of Saturday Night Live in 2009. The Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are known for producing musicals (they were the executive producers of the film version of "Chicago" as well as the series "Smash" on NBC), and they suggested to Mr. Gordon-Levitt him to sing professionally. He has had contact with them since then: "I want to do a musical," he said, and has been waiting for the right project to participate.
In the meantime, he was invited to appear at the Oscars, his first participation in the event. "They asked me to sing and dance, and I said, 'What's the joke?'" He said. But producers have ensured that it was not: they just wanted him to lend star power reserve for Seth MacFarlane.
Joe gave a humorous interview with MTV yesterday, the Oscar 2013 red carpet as he passed by. He talked about the invitation extended to him to present the awards and even about the possibility of doing a musical. He also confirmed that his part in Sin City 2 has already been recorded and commented briefly on the adjustments that will in Don Jon's Addiction before it can debut in American theaters.
