Film director Rian Johnson and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt are neighbors in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles. They’re also pretty close, since Gordon-Levitt says they hang out at each other’s house and he also praises Johnson’s cooking.

” ‘Looper’ is the first time anyone has written a part for me,” he tells The Japan Times about the film that is written and directed by Johnson. “When Rian handed me a draft of the script, we were at Du-par’s (restaurant) eating steak and eggs. I waited until I got home to read it. When I did, I thought, ‘This is brilliant.’ ”
