‘The Lookout’ Brings Out Jodie Foster

“The Lookout” stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a once promising high school athlete whose life is turned upside down following a tragic accident. As he tries to maintain a normal life, he takes a job as a janitor at a bank where he ultimately finds himself caught up in a planned heist. Matthew Goode also stars in the film, as a not so good guy, has been getting some outstanding reviews.

“The Lookout” marks Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Scott Frank’s (Out of Sight), directorial debut. The intelligent crime drama is centered around Chris (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mysterious Skin), a once promising high school athlete whose life is turned upside down following a tragic accident. As he tries to maintain a normal life, he takes a job as a janitor at a bank where he ultimately finds himself caught up in a planned heist. The film also stars Jeff Daniels, Isla Fisher and Carla Gugino.

So why was Jodie Foster there? Well, Scott Frank wrote Jodie’s film “Little Man Tate.” Also, Carla Cugino probably got her role due to the fact that Frank was a writer on her great but cancelled series “Karen Sisco.”
