Which Part of ‘Don Jon’ Trailer Is Scuzzier: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Porn Addiction or His Jersey Accent?

As a sweet high schooler in 10 Things I Hate About You, as an earnest greeting card writer in (500) Days of Summer, as a dutiful policeman-turned-superhero in The Dark Knight Rises, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has held strong to our collective heart. But he’s also capable of taking seedier turns, as we can see in this new trailer for Don Jon, the actor’s first go as a writer and director.

Gordon-Levitt embodies the title character, a muscle-bound, church-going, family-loving porn addict. Yes, alongside his kin, pals, and ladyfriends, Don Jon ranks pornography as one of the most valued elements in his life. But even skuzzier, sketchier, and creepier than this proclivity for pizza deliveries that take an odd turn is Gordon-Levitt’s accent in the trailer. Putting Frankie Valli and Mike “The Situation” to shame, JGL takes on the thickest, deepest, broiest affect imaginable. Uphold your Garden State pride, and watch the new trailer below.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
