The entire cast of the movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 will be competing in the Best Supporting Actor category at the Oscars next year.

The movie, which was written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, features 12 actors billed above the title and it’s definitely an ensemble piece. Many expected that Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne would be campaigned as lead actors while the rest of the cast would be in the supporting category.

Now, it’s been confirmed by THR that all actors will be campaigned in the supporting category. Another time that this has happened recently was with the movie Spotlight, which went on to win Best Picture.

The cast of the film includes, in alphabetical order, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Sacha Baron Cohen, Danny Flaherty, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Keaton, Frank Langella, John Caroll Lynch, Eddie Redmayne, Noah Robbins, Mark Rylance, Alex Sharp, and Jeremy Strong.

Many believe that the actors with the best chance at landing a nomination are Abdul-Mateen II, Cohen, and former winner Rylance.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Reveals The Big Reason He Decided To Take An Acting Break

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is getting candid on why he made the decision to step back from the acting world in a new interview.

The 39-year-old entertainer explained that his children took top priority over any acting roles.

“I took a couple years off when I had kids,” he shared with Yahoo Entertainment.

Joseph and his wife, Tasha McCauley, have two sons who were born in 2015, and 2017.

Speaking on his new movie, 7500, Joseph added that with his “first job back, I really wanted to focus on finding a creative challenge, and not think about, ‘Oh, what should my next career move be having taken some time off?’ I really just wanted to focus on the art of it and why I love acting so much.”

If you didn’t see, you can watch the thrilling trailer for 7500 now on JustJared.com.

Here’s the synopsis: “It looks like a routine day at work for Tobias (Gordon-Levitt), a soft-spoken young American co-pilot on a flight from Berlin to Paris as he runs through the preflight checklist with Michael, the pilot, and chats with Gökce, his flight-attendant girlfriend. But shortly after takeoff, terrorists armed with makeshift knives suddenly storm the cockpit, seriously wounding Michael and slashing Tobias’ arm. Temporarily managing to fend off the attackers, a terrified Tobias contacts ground control to plan an emergency landing. But when the hijackers kill a passenger and threaten to murder more innocent people if he doesn’t let them back into the cockpit, this ordinary man faces an excruciating test.”

7500 will be released on Amazon Prime Video on June 19.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Sends Message of Encouragement to Class of 2020

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has shared a deeply motivational message to the Class of 2020 on his social media.

Graduating classes across the country are facing not having ceremonies because of the pandemic, which forced many school years to end early.

“You’ve been handed a challenge you didn’t ask for. And now it’s on you to rise to the occasion. Everyone alive today will remember the world before and after this pandemic, and you’re the ones graduation right when it began. For better or worse, you’re the start of a new generation,” Joseph started out.

He added later, “I know it sucks you didn’t get to wear a cap and gown and walk the stage and share the moment with your friends and families in person. I know it sucks, because I actually didn’t get to either…but here’s the hard, shitty truth… you have bigger things to worry about.”

Joseph is working on a followup project for the Class of 2020 as well. Read more about it here.
