This is a look-alike that is not fresh news. You probably noticed the resemblance when the pair starred in the movie “10 Things I Hate About You” in 1999. The uncanny look-alike was even more obvious when they starred together once again in Nolan’s Batman universe in which Joseph plays “Robin” and Heath stars as “The Joker”.
Heath Ledger’s career
The late Heath Ledger had a striving acting career, having so many significant movies such as “A Knight’s Tale”, “The Brothers Grimm”, “Brokeback Mountain”, “Casanova”, “The Dark Knight” and “ The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”. Besides starring in movies, Heath also directed and produced music videos.
The actor had relationships with actresses Heather Graham, Naomi Watts and co-star Michelle Williams. Many people consider him due to this day the best actor who has ever played the role of “The Joker” in the Batman series.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt knows his way around Hollywood. He started his acting career at age four in commercials and small roles but it wasn’t until his most recent movies that he made his breakthrough. “(500) Days of Summer”, “Inception”, “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” are the movies that brought him fame.
So not only their looks are the same but also their resumes. The world had a great loss when Heath Ledger died in 2008 but somehow the resemblance with Joseph never allowed us to forget the talented actor and as for Joseph’s acting skills and career, we could say that he is on fire and he doesn’t seem to settle down any time soon.
