Today’s pick: Don Jon Trailer on YouTube

The topic: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character makes his passions very clear in the trailer for the actor’s directorial debut, Don Jon. “There are only a few things I really care about in life: my body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls and my porn,” says a Jersified version of Gordon-Levitt. The movie, in theaters Oct. 18, also stars Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza and Julianne Moore.

Why we’re watching: We just can’t resist the chance to see Gordon-Levitt channel the Jersey Shore in the trailer for the movie which opened to positive reviews at Sundance this year.
