Don't you just hate multi-talented people? isn't just one of Hollywood's most sought after actors, he's incredibly handsome, a musician AND now also a writer and director. Urgh, if he didn't also seem so absolutely lovable, I think I'd really dislike him...

JGL (as people in a hurry seem to call him) has just debuted the trailer for his first directorial effort, Don Jon, and as you'd expect, its pretty damn good. Take a look below:


See what I mean? Now the trailer gives a pretty good indication of what goes down, but here's the official synopsis just in case you want some more information:

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.

You can expect Don Jon to hit theaters on October 13th.

What do you think? Do you see a bright directorial career ahead for Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Let me know below.
