Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is Returning To TV 12 Years After ‘3rd Rock’

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is Coming Back to TV With HitRecord

You just can’t keep movie actors off the small screen these days.

Looper and Lincoln star Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be returning to the medium that first made him famous 12 years after the end of 3rd Rock from the Sun. And he’s doing it by way of his smash success hitRECord, the online artists’ collective that fields submissions from aspiring musicians, filmmakers, and comedians, in search of the next big act.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Won’t Play Batman

Gordon-Levitt has joined forces with Participant Media to launch a variety series on Participant’s new TV channel, Pivot, expected to launch August 1. The show, hitRECord TV, will do exactly what the online version has done: give a spotlight to artists who might not otherwise have the money or resources to publicize their work. Gordon-Levitt himself will host hitRECord TV, produce it, field submissions from musicians, filmmakers, and animators, and program the show’s lineup of content. Meaning that before long, Gordon-Levitt may be able to add another title to his resume: mogul.

Editor/Interactive Content Director Christian Blauvelt is’s expert for all things geek. Can’t tell the difference between a Kowakian monkey lizard and a Krayt dragon? Don’t know whether to order a raktajino or a Romulan Ale from your Ferengi barman? He’s your geek! This knowledge was acquired over many years of rigorous training during his youth on the swamp planet St. Petersburg, FL. Think of him like Channing Tatum in Magic Mike but with entertainment journalism in place of the custom furniture ambitions and minus the washboard abs. A stint on the ice planet Hoth (Northwestern University) finally led to him coming to Coruscant (New York City), where he helps share his knowledge with you all. He will desperately try to avoid puns like, "Set phasers for phun!"
