Gordon-Levitt Crashes into Taxicab Window on Premium Rush
Bad. Ass. Don't worry, Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn't hurt badly, just a big scratch. In fact, he wasn't even fazed by the accident, as he asked director David Koepp to record a lil' video of his gnarly wound (don't watch if you can't handle lots of blood) and the place where it all occurred. While out shooting a scene for Premium Rush, that upcoming bike messenger action-thriller we posted first look photos from recently, lead actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt accidentally crashed into the back window of taxi cab on his bike, getting wounded in the process but not too bad. He posted a video on his Tumblr blog (found by Anne Thompson).
"My first real wreck today. Busted through the rear window of a cab," Joe said on his blog. "Luckily got my elbows up. Coulda been way worse. No, but it was my fault, I was going too fast." As we mentioned in our interview with Joe for Inception, he truly loves doing his own stunts which always makes his performances so authentic. This incident just shows that Joe Gordon-Levitt is truly tough as nails, getting actual injuries from real stunts he performed on his own and having some fun while at it. Premium Rush is still shooting now and will be released by Sony in 2011. Check out the video Koepp shot of Gordon-Levitt's injury below.
