Triple threat is no longer the term used to refer to celebrities who dance, sing and act—it's what we like to call hot famous guys who direct, produce, AND/or write their own movies. Inspired by this weekend's release of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, Don Jon, here's 11 hunks of Hollywood (including Brad, George, and the one and only Ryan Gosling) who make the rest of Hollywood look like slackers.
JGL makes his directorial and writing debut with the release of Don Jon, where he plays a New Jersey guido addicted to porn. His character is nothing like himself in real life, basically.
Jason Segel wrote, produced and starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Muppets which, in my humble opinion, are two of his finest works to date. How I Met Your Mother aside, of course.
Need a reason to find Ryan Gosling even more attractive? In 2014, the world will get to see his directing debut How To Catch a Monster, the thriller written, directed, and starring RyGos. Mark your calendars, gals.
The world cried when Ben Affleck didn't win the Oscar last year for Best Director for Argo, but somehow we think Ben's going to get plenty of chances in the future to make up for it. And also, we can't forget that one time he did win for Best Screenplay...
...with Good Will Hunting! BFFs Ben and Matt Damon shared the Academy Award for Best Screenplay for this classic film, which both hotties also starred in.
Let's not forget the greatest film of 2001, Zoolander, which made its director slash star Ben Stiller almost as famous as it made Blue Steel. Almost.
Will Ferrell has brought his amazing comedic writing skills to many of his films, but Anchormans 1 and 2, which he wrote, produced and starred in, are certainly the stand-outs.
James Franco has directed many a comedy sketches over the years, but As I Lay Dying, the first feature film that he wrote and directed, comes out this November. And it's good.
George's directorial debut happened in 2005 with Good Night, and Good Luck and then came Ides of March and the upcoming Monument Men. Keep 'em comin', Clooney.
It's actually crazy to think that Brad Pitt has never directed nor written a movie, but he's got plenty of producing credits to his IMBD page, like with The Departed, Moneyball, World War Z...and so on.
Sasha Baron Cohen
Sasha Baron Cohen also has yet to make his directorial debut, but let's not discount all the amazing(ly uncomfortable to watch) movies that Sasha's written like Borat, Bruno and The Dictator.
