Aside from starring in the highly anticipated upcoming film Snowden, the actor was just named Hasty Pudding Theatricals' 2016 Man of the Year. "No emoji can express how excited we are about having Joseph Gordon-Levitt as our 50th Man of the Year," Bobby Fitzpatrick, President of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, said in a statement. "We anxiously await Mr. Gordon-Levitt's arrival, as he begins his slow journey to the Hasty Pudding Theatricals on a small rope from LA to Cambridge." And it seems like Gordon-Levitt is equally as excited to be bestowed with the honor. "Perusing the impressive list of past Hasty Pudding Men Of The Year, I'm simultaneously struck with intense delusions of grandeur and mild waves of humility," he stated. Gordon-Levitt follows in the footsteps of many famous men who have received the award before him, including Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Robert De Niro, Harrison Ford, Bruce Willis, Justin Timberlake, James Franco, and most recently, Neil Patrick Harris and Chris Pratt.
