Joseph Gordon-Levitt Through the Years
In the late ’80s, fans met a young child star by the name of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Then a relative unknown, Gordon-Levitt picked up bit roles in shows like Family Ties and Murder, She Wrote before landing a multi-episode arc on Dark Shadows in 1991 and hitting the big screen in Beethoven and A River Runs Through It in 1992. The actor would go on to make a name for himself as Tommy Solomon in 3rd Rock from the Sun, charm moviegoers as Cameron James in 10 Things I Hate About You, and become an in-demand leading man with roles in (500) Days of Summer, 50/50, and Looper. In honor of Gordon-Levitt’s 35th birthday, check out 35 photos of the dreamy star’s evolution, ahead.
