Happy Father's Day? Tony Danza drools over Scarlett Johansson in 'Don Jon' clip -- VIDEO

In the upcoming movie Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s title character seems to have a very open relationship with his old man, played by Tony Danza, and this special Father’s Day clip makes that pretty clear.

When Don Jon first brings Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) home to meet mom and dad, Danza’s Jon Sr. immediately goes into cartoon-wolf mode, barely keeping his eyeballs in their sockets. The Father of the Year contender even asks his son “Are they real?” after getting an eyeful of Johansson’s physique.

Watch the NSFW (but still family-oriented) clip below:

'Don Jon' trailer: Love, porn, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt -- VIDEO

What do you care about most in life? In Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Martello (Gordon-Levitt) leads a simple existence. He’s got his own hierarchy of needs: “My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, and my porn.” And it seems to be working out pretty well for Don, until he meets Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) — the bombshell of his dreams with a Jersey accent to match.

The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival under the title Don Jon’s Addiction where EW described it as “an improbably entertaining and kind-hearted comedy about a specimen of New Jersey manhood.” Take a look at the first trailer for the film after the jump. It has a clubby, manic, fast-paced vibe that draws the viewer in, before slowing down and hitting the punchline — that porn may be a deal breaker for the romantic comedy-obsessed Barbara. Tony Danza and Julianne Moore co-star in the comedy, which even features a fake movie-within-the-movie starring Channing Tatum and Anne Hathaway.

Fox acquires the rights to 'Guys and Dolls' -- will Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star?

Are Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt the next Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando?

The answer? Maybe. EW has confirmed that 20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to Guys and Dolls, the Frank Loesser musical about two gamblers who make a bet about a girl. But as far as Tatum and Gordon-Levitt are concerned, Deadline reports that Fox is interested in casting the actors in a remake of the 1955 film.

All we know is that Gordon-Levitt can sing, Tatum can dance, and both would look really good in fedoras. Bottom line: If luck were a lady, she would choose these two actors in a heartbeat.

Who would you like to see cast in a potential Guys and Dolls remake?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Don Jon' gets fall release date

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut Don Jon, formerly Don Jon’s Addiction, will be in theaters Oct. 18. Gordon-Levitt (who also wrote the film) stars as a modern day Don Juan from New Jersey who is addicted to porn. The film made a splash at Sundance and was quickly scooped up by Relativity Media for $4 million. Gordon-Levitt stated in February that he would probably have to cut out some of the film’s racier scenes to secure an R-rating. Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore and Tony Danza also star.

Don Jon’s Addiction, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut that premiered earlier this year at Sundance, is no more. Or at least the title is no more.

The actor took to his Facebook page Friday to announce that he is shortening the title to Don Jon.

Gordon-Levitt wrote that he’s changing the title firstly because Don Jon is “just so short and simple” and secondly because he felt the former title was creating unwanted misconceptions about the film. Read more of what he told his Facebook fans below: READ FULL STORY

Joseph Gordon-Levitt will edit 'Don Jon's Addiction' to secure R rating

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Jon’s Addiction, a racy comedy about sex addiction, kicked off its rating-free festival run with Sundance last month. But now the actor-director has to prepare for MPAA to come into the picture — Relativity Media has scooped up the U.S. distribution rights — and that means going back to the cutting room. Gordon-Levitt plans to cut down some of the film’s most graphic sex scenes to secure an R rating, EW confirmed. THR reported the news from the Berlin International Film Festival. READ FULL STORY

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Don Jon's Addiction' goes for $4 million

Don Jon’s Addiction, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s racy directorial debut that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, was acquired by Relativity Media for $4 million. Gordon-Levitt also stars as Jon Martello, a New Jersey Don Juan whose prolific romantic conquests can’t compete with his obsession for online pornography. Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza, and Julianne Moore co-star.

“I always intended this to be a movie for a mass popular audience,” said Gordon-Levitt, in a statement. “Everyone told me it was a long shot. Now Relativity is making it happen. Tucker Tooley and Robbie Brenner told me they believe that, more than anything, audiences want something unique.  I couldn’t agree with them more. I admire them for putting their money where their mouth is. And I couldn’t possibly be more grateful.”
