Hesher Trailer: If This Site Were to Genetically Engineer an All-Star Celebrity Cast, It Might Look Like This

A bad-ass trailer for Hesher, the much-buzzed about Sundance flick from 2010, has arrived. It should put the long-haired stoner images of Joseph Gordon-Levitt floating around on the Internet into perspective for many of you and also answers this question: Is it possible for Natalie Portman to look homely?

The answer? Kind of. She has a supporting role as a cashier in Hesher, in what appears to be a movie thematically similar to one of Tom McCarthy’s lonely souls flicks. Gordon-Levitt’s character, who appears not to own a shirt, stumbles into a dysfunctional family, which includes a kid, a grandmother, and Rainn Wilson — doing his best Steve Carell in Little Miss Sunshine — and he transforms the dynamic. Or something.

What’s most striking, however, is how JGL’s voice never sounds like it should be coming out of that guy.
