The stars of our premiere outdoor film this season, 500 Days of Summer, are familiar faces on both the silver and the television screens. Zooey Deschanel currently stars in the television comedy New Girl on Fox as Jess, a 20-something teacher who moves in with three men after a failed relationship. The show tracks the relationships between the roommates as they navigate careers, love and friendship. Deschanel’s film credits include a starring and singing roll alongside Will Ferrell in Elf and as the sarcastic friend in Failure to Launch with Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew McConaughey.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt started his career on television, most notably as Tommy Solomon on 3rd Rock From the Sun, but quickly made a name for himself on the big screen starring in the teen cult classic 10 Things I Hate About You with Julia Styles and Heath Ledger. His recent credits include distinguished roles in the major motion pictures Inception, The Dark Knight Rises and Looper. His most recent, Don Jon, is a film that he wrote, directed and starred in.
Gordon-Levitt’s aspirations don’t stop at the screen. He is also the founder of hitRECord, a collaborative production company that brings together writers, musicians, illustrators, photographers, video editors and other creatives to contribute to a TV variety show airing on pivot, a digital cable and satellite TV channel that is owned by Participant Media. HitRECord produces other artwork including books, songs and music albums, and short films.
