Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Well, I did a fair amount of research; I did some reading; my favorite book I read was called The Man With the Shattered World which was about a veteran coming back from World War II. The guy in that book suffered an injury far more severe than Chris Pratt's, but the more fruitful preparation I did was just hanging out with different people who had been through similar things to the character. What I kind of figured out was they all were individuals and trying to put any of them in a box or a category was about as fruitless as trying to put anybody in any box or category based on any label that you can put anyone under. That led me to really want to make the character not just a stereotype - not, 'Ok, here's the disabled young man' but to make him a person.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: What I like is that he doesn't give up, he doesn't quit; I think that's kind of the most charming thing about him. Even though it's really difficult for him to do a lot of the things that we just take for granted, like waking up in the morning, like following a conversation and driving to work - things that we can do without thinking about them, he has to focus on them real hard. And, by the end of the day he's exhausted; he has to work really hard but he doesn't quit. He continues to try and that's really admirable.Read More
