Try not to love him. I dare you. Just try. Women love him and guys think he's awesome, and I'll always remember him as the best part of 3rd Rock From the Sun. Is there a person alive who can look as dapper wearing skinny ties and vests.
I'm foreseeing the possibility of this snagging an Original Screenplay nomination for scribe Will Reiser, given the indie dramedy feel from the trailer. This type of film typically registers well with the writing branch, and if not the Oscars most certainly the WGA.
I loved Levitt's work in (500) Days of Summer, so he's proven he's capable of leading man work. His character is going down a different journey in 50/50, but this could be a big showcase for this constantly almost-next-big thing actor. The supporting cast looks fun, with greats thesps like Anjelica Huston, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Philip Baker Hall offering reefer snacks. The only slight concern I have with the trailer is Seth Rogen and the way-too-obvious-and-too-numerous alone shots of Levitt. But, this could be a fun movie.
Oh. And how about that Anna Kendrick? She looks great in it.
