For his brewing directorial debut Joseph Gordon-Levitt could have called on favors from the array of folks he's worked with over the years, but so far, he's teaming with new faces. Scarlett Johansson was the first to come on board, followed by Julianne Moore (okay, she cameod in "Electra Luxx" but as far as we know they didn't share any scenes) but for JGL's latest bit of casting, he's calling up a name from the very earliest days of his Hollywood career.
