>He has traveled light years from 3rd Rock from the Sun. Few child actors grow up to boast as impressive a career as Gordon-Levitt, 28, is building after his run on the sitcom (1996-2001). He’s already a critics’ favorite (count me in) for memorable starring roles in quality indie films such as Mysterious Skin (2004), Brick (’05) and The Lookout (’07). Among actors in his age group, the only match for range, sensitivity and a knowing glint in the eye is Ryan Gosling. That’s good company to keep.
