Who could say no to Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Not Scarlett Johansson or Julianne Moore, nor Tony Danza; Variety reports he's joining JGL's directorial debut. Awesomely enough, the two co-starred in Angels in the Outfield back in 1994. Danza will play Gordon-Levitt's dad in the still-untitled film, which features Johansson as Joe's girlfriend and Moore as an unlikely mentor to his porn-addled, trying-to-change-his-playa-ways self.
