‘Looper’ trailer now online, reveals that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis are the same person

This is Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

He’s a 31-year-old actor best known for semi-wooing Zooey Deschanel in “(500) Days of Summer,” extracting information from people’s dreams in “Inception” and generally being adorable.

He’s a 57-year-old action star best known for yippee-ki-yaying his way through the “Die Hard” franchise, killing John Travolta in “Pulp Fiction,” being previously married to Demi Moore and recently becoming a dad again with current wife Emma Heming.

Well, despite their obvious age, career and life experience differences, it turns out Gordon-Levitt and Willis are the same person. At least they are in “Looper,” an upcoming sci-fi film in which Gordon-Levitt plays an assassin (Joe) assigned to kill his future self (older Joe, aka Willis). The movie was directed by Rian Johnson, who previously guided Gordon-Levitt in the memorable noir-indie “Brick.”

The trailer is now online and suggests the film has strong potential. It also gives Gordon-Levitt the opportunity to look more like David Addison from “Moonlighting” than we ever dreamed he would.
