"But absolutely, I was like, 'S**t, I don't know if anybody's gonna let me act. They'll let me be in another sitcom, but I don't want to do that. This is terrible'."

Gordon-Levitt later turned his back on school to return to Hollywood, and has since gained acclaim for his roles in independent films "", war movie "", and 2009's "".
