Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt team up for Christmas movie

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

What are a couple of nice Jewish actors like Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt doing in a movie about Christmas? We don’t know, but after watching these guys together in “50/50,” we’re looking forward to finding out.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jonathan Levine, director of the 2011 cancer dramedy, is bringing its stars together again for the film that is, for the time being, called “Untitled Xmas Comedy.”

Rogen and Gordon-Levitt will play two-thirds of a childhood buddy trio (so many great possibilities for the yet-to-be cast number three we’re dizzy over here) who go out together every year on Christmas Eve. This time it’s in New York, where hopefully they’ll hit one of those Matzo Ball bashes.
