Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Brother, Dan, Passes Away

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad


This is truly devastating news.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's brother, Dan, has passed away.

The actor posted the following message on hitRECord, his new media project's website:

BURNING dAN brightly embodied that bold beastly bliss sometimes referred to as "the creative spirit." He was my chief collaborator on the foundational incarnations of hitRECord.org over the years and continues to inspire us ever the more. He would absolutely positively insist that we not let this bad news deter us on our collective mission. That said, I might not feel up to it for a little while.

Watching this community blossom into what it has become never ceased to amaze him and me. We would regularly marvel at it and high five. Thank you all for that. There he is now pouring heaping hollowed watermelons full of love over each and every one of us.

So let's celebrate him, he's fucking awesome:

See you real soon,
thanks again…

There's no news yet on what happened, but he was actively using his Twitter account until Sunday night.

So sad.

Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones during this unbelievably difficult time.

R.I.P., Dan.

    without a doubt, one of the readers on here will tell me what happened before butt boy will……..

  7. 7

    well how did he die?

  8. 8

    Were they twins?

    How utterly rude and deplorable to say "Who cares" in this situation. A great deal of people care- his friends, his family, the people whose lives and hearts were touched by such a warm, kind, and inspiring spirit. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    done with this shit site.

    Condolences to him and his family. This must be absolutely devastating.

    Oh no…that is awful…I got all excited to see an article about JGL, but I don't like bad stuff happening to him!!! Stay strong, Joe, so sorry to hear this…

    I think people shouldn't be asking stuff like "was it a marijuana overdose etc" and just respect the news. This is news, not gossip, respect them and think of what devastation JGL and his family and friends must be facing. So lay off with the questions and respect the news. My condolences once again to Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his family.

    with that hair i think he probably deserved to die. yuck

  17. 17

    See you real soon. I don't like the way that sounds sweetheart.

    R.I.P, Burning Dan.

    Re: OreoCookys – you fucking idiot….that was what we call a "joke" maybe you should try The New York Times Website and talk to people who might give a fuck about your sensitive feelings…..dipshit

  21. 21

    I would give anything for a three-some with those two…

    And for those commenting on what a "stoner" his brother looks like, shut up. They're both stoners.

  22. 22

    this is really really sad. poor brother :(

  23. 23

    Very sad!

    Burning Dan was one of the first people I met when I moved to LA 3 months ago. He was without a doubt one of the friendliest people, welcoming me and my husband on the Venice Beach Boardwalk with a giant smile and tons of enthusiasm. His dedication and enthusiasm to Flow Temple and fire arts was awesome. He does fucking rock and even though he might not be as large a celeb as his brother, to those in the area, he will be missed. This is really shocking and saddening to read.

    I am SO sad! I was friendly with Dan about 5-8 years ago and he was an amazing guy; he was friendly and nice to everyone and was just a special person. I can't believe it.

    Re: n1ko11 – you're an idiot. besides the fact that tons of people care, you certainly won't be mentioned on perez when your time comes.

  27. 27

    Re: n1ko11 – in fact, when you go, no one other than the 5 people you associate with will even be aware that you had existed at any point on this earth. If you think it's insignificant that someone died and is mentioned on perez, consider just how very insignificant you are.

  28. 28

    Thats so sad. R.I.P. Dan.

  29. 29

    I couldn't imagine. I feel bad for the family… he looks so young.
