If you haven’t already heard – Joseph Gordon-Levitt is part of the star-studded cast for the upcoming Sin City sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly both Gordon-Levitt and director Robert Rodriguez sat down to discuss the upcoming film. Rodriguez of course addressed why there was a ten year wait between the two Sin City films, explaining that while the demand was there everything didn’t really “align” until recently, especially in terms of cast.

Alongside Rodriguez, Joseph Gordon-Levitt voiced his thoughts about the upcoming thriller.

“It’s aptly titled,” the Don Jon actor told Entertainment Weekly, “It’s sort of a story about the worst in us as humans.”

In addition, Gordon-Levitt was able to reveal a bit more about his character Johnny, a gambler whose good fortune takes an unfortunate turn when he out-gambles the wrong guy.

“The character I play is a guy that has admirable qualities but is being dragged down by that desire for revenge,” Gordon-Levitt explained. “And revenge never leads to anywhere good.”

Lastly, Joseph Gordon-Levitt had a glowing review for pop star Lady Gaga, who actually appears in a scene of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, during an interview with radio station Jam’n 94.5

“She was in Sin City 2. I did a part for it. Mr. Rodriquez asked me to be in, and Lady Gaga is in a scene of it. And I gotta say, she did a really good job. Like, she’s a great actress. And I didn’t know that,” the Don Jon actor told Jam’n.

“You know she came in and I was like, “Okay sure, they’re having a huge pop star do a scene in the movie. I understand’. But then she came in and like, nailed it. She had her character down, and she was like a total pro and did a great job. I was really impressed.”

With it’s majorly star-studded cast (Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Eva Green) Sin City: A Dame to Kill For comes to theatres this August 22.
