Joe totally bowled me over in Inception. At that time I began wondering why I tend to look at the secondary actor more than the primary one – I think it’s because he’s just not that obvious. I liked Orlando Bloom in LOTR instead of Viggo Mortesen, I much preferred Jude Law to Robert Downey Jr. in Sherlock Holmes, and now Joe got my attention – moving away from Leo. The very fact that they are unexpected treats – you know the main guy is going to be great, all-powerful, all-knowledgeable and with that casting, perfect to a T…it’s the second player that always grabs my attention (if he’s cute in my sense of the word). Joe was surprising – he’s matured so much from 10 Things I Hate About You, where he was a cute kid, and now he’s a good-looking boy-man. Love the dimples, the natural demeanour, the burgeoning confidence that says ‘Yeah, I’ve made it, but I’m not there yet!’ and it’s fun seeing him in this interview with Peter Travers from Rolling Stones – especially where he starts to play the guitar.
