Joseph Gordon-Levitt Loves Sin City’s Green Screen Universe

Joseph Gordon-Levitt enters Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s universe with Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. It’s a plum role for the actor, as he plays a can’t lose gambler who strides into Sin City with the sole purpose of embarrassing Senator Roark (Powers Boothe). Unfortunately for Johnny, Roark has the town on a string, and his powerful grip may be too much for our young hero to handle.

To deliver an effective performance with Sin City’s black and white world, one must carry a great deal of imagination. Green screen is their basic canvas, but for Gordon-Levitt that wasn’t a huge problem. “I actually loved working in the green environment,” said the actor. “And just fully embracing an abandonment of realism.”
