I posted this elsewhere and a few people were saying that it probably was, because we were supposed to see Young Joe in Cid. But most people watching Looper don't know what baby JGL looked like. And also he had his Bruce Willis face on so you wouldn't really make that connection.

Whatever, I thought it was pretty cute anyway!

Both so cute. I love Cid's bitchface.

Adorable. I mean obviously the kid was chosen because he was fabulous. But I thought this was uncanny. And cute. :)

I think you're right about it being intended to show a parallel between Cid and Joe, but I don't think it matters that JGL is in Bruce make-up. To me, the intention is that they can all connect to each others lives and see some of one other in themselves.

Maybe I'm getting too meta, but I think naming JGL and Bruce's characters "Joe" is another hint at this theme - the blurring and confusing of the perceived borders of the individual. Joe(seph Gordon-Levitt) is playing Joe, Bruce is playing Joe/JGL, JGL is playing Bruce, Pierce/Cid looks like JGL who is Joe who is Bruce. Everything is connected!

That's why that one kid said "What is the ocean but a multitude of drops?" and Tom Hanks spoke in that funny accent!

I think it's my bed time.

I don't really think they look alike that much. Maybe their mouths.

You guyyyys. I know it's tempting, and your wit is appreciated, but our wonderful Sarah has made it pretty clear that responding to Spam threads makes them more work to get rid of. We're already dealing with a big influx here, so please don't make it any harder!

Well, but this isn't a spam thread. It was an actual thread that got taken over by spammers. Replying in general or replying directly to them, I don't think it makes a difference, because they're bots. They're not ever going to come back and check if the replies were directed toward them or toward others.

The only thing to do in this case is delete the thread and start over, I'd guess.

And man, the board is on fire with spam today. >_<

Ahh, yeah, sorry, I see that now. My bad. Just trying to help.

No worries, no worries! There wasso dang much spam in this post, it's hard to tell where actual posts end and spam begins.

Stupid bots.

It's great though because when the spam is deleted it's going to look like Jules was being really snarky to T. Jones.

I noticed that similarity when we were casting Pierce, but I can't take credit for it. It's lucky enough that we found that kid.

He was fabulous. And even funnier listening to stories about him in the commentary. OMG his little face.

Also let it be known that I was, in fact, snarking at SPAM and not anyone on here. LOL though.
