 Joseph Gordon-Levitt is already a quadruple threat: Actor, writer, director, fantasy boyfriend of women everywhere (read: In our office). But the Don Jon everything-er also has a hidden talent that we didn’t even fathom: Porn caster.

What does that mean, exactly? Does he cast porn stars in things? Um, no, not so far, though we’re sure he would do so with artistic aplomb, as he does with everything he touches (pardon). Rather, when he was making Don Jon, about a porn-obsessed Guido who nearly destroys his relationship with gorgeous Scarlett Johansson because of his love for the 2-dimensional sex, he had a daunting job: Finding the best porn for the movie.

"It was a pretty tedious and time-consuming task," JGL told Vulture at a screening of his new flick. Yeah, we bet, pal. Right up there with making out with ScarJo...

But just as we wrote in our diary, Joe is totally serious about his gentlemanly-ness. He continued of the arduous process, "[It was] kind of horrid at times, to be honest. But I really wanted to find that balance between making it an rated-R movie that would fit into mainstream culture and, at the same time, be provocative enough to elicit the feelings that you get when you see these images. There's no substitute."

Ya hear that, guys? There’s just no substitute for the right kind of porn. Especially knowing that JGL probably formed a lot of callouses leafing through all those magazines and discs to find the right stuff. #Dedication.
