2012 is going to be a huge year for the adorable, sexy Joseph Gordon-Levitt. In addition to the four movies he’s already got on deck, the 30-year-old star will make his directoral and writing debut. As if that weren’t enough, JGL will also star in the comedy. (We’d all hate for him to be hiding behind the camera.)

“I wrote myself a helluva role, one that people wouldn’t necessarily thought of me for,” dishes Joseph to Deadline. “This is the first time I finished a feature film I thought was good enough to make into a movie.”

The multi-talented actor feels confident in his directing skills, having many short films under his belt and experience working under high-profile directors like Chris Nolan, Rian Johnson, and Steven Spielberg.

As the lead, Joseph will play a womanizer trying to change his “selfish dick” ways. His former makeout buddy Scarlett Johansson will also star.

Apparently, JGL will be casting a second leading lady. Clearly, we’ve got to brush up on our acting skills!
