Joseph Gordon-Levitt has started a production company at HitRecord.org, allowing any creative minds to chip in and be paidJoseph Gordon-Levitt seems like a nice fella -- the kind of guy you could have a beer with, ask for relationship advice, maybe even pitch an idea to. While there's no official word on the beer or heart-to-heart talks, working with the star of '(500) Days of Summer' and '3rd Rock from the Sun' isn't too outlandish a prospect -- he's started a production company at HitRecord.org (as in press record, like a button) and chatted all about it with Entertainment Weekly.

"Rather than just working within the insular Hollywood industry, I wanted to open my production company up to anybody," the 29-year-old actor tells EW. "There are so many people all over the world who are doing great art, in New York, in the Philippines, anywhere -- whether they're writing or making music or taking photos. So the Web site is just a way for me to collaborate with those great artists all over the place. It's a place for people to come and work with me."
