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


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 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.
