Check out a new TV spot for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s writing and directorial debut “Don Jon”, which features his character getting all hot and bothered by Scarlett Johansson after, I presume, a successful date. Well, someone had a lot of fun that day. I’m not going to go out on a limb and say that Joseph Gordon-Levitt wrote the script for “Don Jon” just so he can have these type of scenes with ScarJo, but I’m sure it didn’t hurt.
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.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Rob Brown, Glenne Headly, Brie Larson, and Tony Danza.
