Sometimes it’s hard to remember that a lot of today’s A-list celebrities began acting when they were young kids. Leonardo DiCaprio played Luke on the hit show “Growing Pains” and had an incredible performance in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.” Similarly, Kirsten Dunst landed a key role in “Interview with the Vampire” before breaking out in the biz. Today we were reminded of one of Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s first roles when Leonard Nimoy posted an old photograph. Talk about throwback!

The photo shows Nimoy directing JGL and Patricia Arquette in “Holy Matrimony,” a film following a Hutterite boy who, following his brother’s death, must marry his wife—an outsider to his Anabaptist community. Maybe we’ll add this movie to our Sick Day Stash.
But if you’re looking for a more recent JGL role, look no further than the 2012 MTV Movie Awards! Itching to see more of one of this summer’s most highly-anticipated films? We’ve got you covered! During our live broadcast, we’re debuting never-before-seen footage from “The Dark Knight Rises.”
Director Christopher Nolan and actors Christian Bale and Gary Oldman will even be on hand with JGL to introduce the new footage! It doesn’t really get more exciting than that, folks. Unless, of course, Batman himself showed up at your door with the film reel. That might be slightly more exciting.
Tune in to the Movie Awards on MTV this Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET to catch the exclusive!
