Katie's Take
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Triple Threat

He can sing, dance and act. What will Joseph Gordon-Levitt pull out of his sleeve next?

Katie Couric sat down with the actor who stars, writes and directs his latest film "Don Jon" to talk about his many upcoming projects.

"Do you think you might want to do a musical one day? Because obviously, you've got the music in you," Katie asked.

The answer was yes: "I love musical movies," said Gordon-Levitt.

And with his open collaborative production company hitRECord, Gordon-Levitt will be directing a variety show set to air in January.

"It's hard to compare it to anything on TV," he said. "The closest I've come is 'Sesame Street' - but not for kids."

In addition to his TV and film work, "JGL" (if that's not a thing - it should be) is also releasing a book: "The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories."

Thousands of artist contributions went into the making of this book before being whittled down to 67 selections.
