First Images Of Joseph Gordon-Levitt As Snowden

"Really?" was probably your first thought on hearing news that Jason Gordon-Levitt would be playing Edward Snowden. "That lovable Hollywood scamp is going to star in a film about privacy?"

Yes, really. And if the first images are anything to go by, he looks the part as well. 

Cast as the now-infamous ex-CIA whistle-blower in Oliver Stone's upcoming biopic Snowden, Gordon-Levitt will take on the role of the bespectacled system administrator who caused ripples in 2013 with a release of classified documents from the US National Security Agency. Open Roads Films has released the following image of Gordon-Levitt as Snowden during his stint in the US Army Reserves.

Then, in a moment of apparent leaky excitement (not like that), the actor himself took to Twitter to share another image...

Will Gordon-Levitt add the necessary "cool" to the otherwise bone-dry (but hugely important) tale of Snowden's leaks? Has Hollywood jumped the gun in telling a story that's still unfolding?

With no confirmed UK release date (maybe Snowden will leak it?) we'll probably have to wait until late 2015/early 2016 before we find out.
