Joseph Leonard Gordon-Levitt (born February 17, 1981) is an American actor whose career as both a child and adult has included successful television series, acclaimed theatrical films, and stage performances. He started high school in Van Nuys high school.

Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt starred in the TV comedy 3rd Rock From the Sun, and several acclaimed films, including (500) Days of Summer, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt started acting at an early age. He co-starred with John Lithgow and Jane Curtin in 3rd Rock From the Sun for six seasons, beginning in 1996. Gordon-Levitt went to Columbia University for a time before returning to acting. He starred in several independent films, including the 2008 hit (500) Days of Summer and Christopher Nolan's 2011 film Inception. In 2012, Gordon-Levitt teamed up with Christopher Nolan again, performing in the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.
In many ways, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the exception to the Hollywood rule—having successfully transitioned from a child star to a well-regarded grown-up talent. He started out in local children's theater, appearing in his first play at the age of four. "I was never pressured into acting," he later to the New Jersey Star-Ledger. "I just genuinely liked it, like I liked gymnastics and football and Little League." Gordon-Levitt soon moved on to commercials and television shows, appearing in a peanut-butter ad when he was 6 years old.

Gordon-Levitt moved on to roles in such series as the 1991 reboot of the classic gothic soap opera Dark Shadows, and the early 90's sitcom The Powers That Be with John Forsythe and David Hyde Pierce. But his career really took off with the alien comedy 3rd Rock From the Sun, which premiered in the fall of 1996. The series followed a group of aliens, who come to Earth and pretend to be a human family. Gordon-Levitt played an alien who appears to be a teenage boy. John Lithgow played the commander of this alien mission, who pretends to be a college professor. The show was tremendously popular, running for six season.
In the sixth season, Gordon-Levitt reduced his role in the show to stay on as a guest star. Around the same time, he moved to New York City, where he enrolled at Columbia University. For three years, Gordon-Levitt took classes at the prestigious school, studying French literature among other subjects.
