This is just so, so sad.

New details have emerged regarding the death of Dan Gordon-Levitt, the older brother of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and it appears that his passing was the result of a drug overdose.

Sources with the authorities have confirmed that his body was discovered at a Hollywood apartment early Monday morning, and that the results of the autopsy are currently being deferred until the toxicology report comes in.

We can't even begin to imagine how hard this must be for his family and friends. Our sincerest condolences go out to them.

    all of the previous commentators are awful people. This is terrible & I am so sorry for the family & for dan losing his life.

    PEOPLE: If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all. A person has died and that's how you respond! You all should be ashemed of yourselfs.
    My thoughts go out to his family.
    Rest in peace, Dan

    Big surprise.

    I thought the 12-Step Religious Cult's "HIGHER POWER" sprinkled the One-Day-at-a-Time Magic Dust on the addicts and made everything ALL BETTER….

    A lot of people have long miserable lives that are not worth "STAYING ALIVE"!

    People like you need to take up less oxygen and stop blowing hot air with your hateful ideals.
    Someone doing recreational drugs and mistakenly od'ing is still sad and causes much pain for their family and friends.

    You meanwhile want to pollute the environment of the world with your toxic energy.

    This makes me so sad….as a huge JGL fan, I've read in a lot of interviews how close they were, and they defined the term brotherhood. My thoughts are with Joseph and the rest of their friends and family during this horrible time.

    Hopefully Joseph will stop with his drug use now and thinking it's all so cool. Drugs are NOT cool and alcohol is NOT cool.

    The death of a loved one- regardless of the caus, is painful. The death of someone so young is also tragic.

    It's irresponsible of perez to declare this death as o.d. With actual confirmation. Irregardless of whether it turns out to be true. I'm not surprised that Perez would be that irresponsible.

    And to all of you insensitive a- holes, do everyone a favor and keep your thoughts to yourself! If this was someone you cared about you wouldn't want people saying such horrible things. Remember karma is a bit**… and u get what you deserve.

    I really hope that this will be like a wake-up call to Joseph to stop doing drugs.

    it literally made me sick to my stomach to read the first couple of comments. one even saying how now theres more oxygen for the "decent" people- imploring that you were any better than another human being in the way of making fun of their DEATH doesnt even make you a somewhat decent person. it makes you scum. so think before you try to reduce someone whom you do not even know in the slightest to trash just simply because of the way he or she died without even knowing the full story. no matter how a person dies, think about the family and the heartbreak and the aftershock of such an event. as bad of a person as you made yourself seem with your disgusting comments, i would NEVER wish this upon you. this is to you retardo81, MarioMonjack, April 20th….

    Re: Petdrnyc – "Irregardless" is not a word, you fucking moron!

    It's so sad that he passed away, he seemed like a really coll guy… but how has an overdose been confirmed if they're waiting for the toxicology report? I don't get that, I think it's an assumption, not a fact.

  21. 21

    Drugs = death, simple. If you're dumb enough to take them, then you get what you deserve, look at Whitney

    I honestly don't understand how people could be so rude. You should keep that negativity and ugliness to yourself. The Gordon-Levitt brothers are two of the sweetest, most down to earth people you'd ever meet. Dan was an inspiration to those who knew him- he was always kind, beautiful- very talented. You really ought to keep this hateful, disgusting behavior to yourself. Ha. "Now there's more oxygen for the decent people" - honey, you wouldn't be one of those people, anyway. Grow up.

    rip dude

    Dan had a workshop that he did on moving physically and opening up to life. he did it in a park in Hollywood. He seemed really positive and healthy about life. I don't think he was a "drug addict" I think it was a prescription he took that did him in! I hope the truth comes out and give my sincere condolences to his family.
