**** JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT STARS IN NEW FILM
Joe (1991 David, Daniel) stars in the new release 50/50. It opened
nationwide today,. 9-30.
He plays a successful young man diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer.
It is based in the real-life experiences of screenwriter Will Reiser and his
best friend, actor Seth Rogen. Joe's "Adam" is based on Will, and Seth
himself portrays the friend, here named "Kyle." The dark comedy is receiving
critical praise for its delicate balance of realism, compassion, and humor.
Recent SG print issues have detailed Joe's work in the film and its
background. The next SG #122 newsletter will feature interviews, reviews,
articles, and other media coverage.
