Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s highly-anticipated directorial debut Don Jon hit theatres this past weekend, and the reviews are looking good. One of the draws to the film — which focuses on a New Jersey guy and his porn addiction (and much more) — is definitely the cast. With Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the lead, and a supporting cast that includes Tony Danza and Scarlett Johansson, there’s plenty to get excited about. But in case you need five more reasons to check out the flick, here are a few cameo appearances we can’t wait to see in Don Jon.
In Don Jon, JGL may play a porn addict, but his girlfriend (ScarJo) has her own addiction — romantic comedies. Anne Hathaway and Channing Tatum apparently play a couple in a phony movie, creating a movie-within-a-movie feel which should be pretty awesome. You can expect a hilarious, melodramatic love scene from the two esteemed actors.
Upon first learning that Cuba Gooding Jr. was in the film, we couldn’t help but wonder if he maybe played a porn star in one of Jon’s favorite movies? It may sound bizarre, but if you’ve ever seen Gooding in Lee Daniels’ Shadowboxer, you get it. But alas, he appears in a scene similar to Hathaway and Tatum’s — he teams up with the gorgeous Meagan Good for another romantic, tongue-in-cheek type love scene.
Okay, we actually have no idea what he’s doing in this movie, but really. Who cares? It’s John C. Reilly! And this will be a nice hold-over until Anchorman 2 gets released.
