Joseph Gordon-Levitt nails his portrayal of the real Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone's SNOWDEN. As Stone's first choice to play the lead, he was on board but others in his professional life cautioned him about taking on such a polarizing figure. He also admits to CineMovie that he didn't know much about Snowden before taking on the role.
In a recent sit down with the SNOWDEN cast and director, Joseph Gordon-Levitt urges everyone to do their own research into the man who exposed the American government for invading the privacy of the masses to decide if his actions were necessary.
