7 reasons Joseph Gordon-Levitt is perfect for musicals

Perfect for most things really.

THE WORD ON the street is that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks for a singing and dancing role in a remake of the movie musical Guys and Dolls.

This makes perfect sense.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt is perfect for musicals, and here is why.

He can sing


He’s good at lots of different kinds of dancing

He can make lots of different facial expressions

He’s matesos with Anne Hathaway and Anna Kendrick, so if he needed advice he’d have people to ask

They’re practically experts from their experiences in Les Mis and Pitch Perfect, after all.

If it was a period piece and the men were required to have long hair, that would be no problem because he has the silken hair of an angel

He displayed it well here on Celebrity Jeopardy in 1997, which also featured Kirsten Dunst.  Poor Kirsten didn’t stand a chance.


If they wanted to go stylised and black and white that would work because he looks really good in black and white


If they need him to be tough, he can do that because he has a scar


Basically, he’s perfect.
