Only time will tell . . .

The differences are subtle. The time in the make-up chair is stated to be about 2 1/2 to 3 hours so this isn’t exactly a Hellboy-like transformation but then it’s not supposed to be. I guess the biggest differences are eye color, nose shape, and lower lip. I suppose the idea is that Joe is supposed to pass as a younger version of Bruce Willis, without distracting from the story. To that end, Gordon-Levitt says that he spent a large amount of time listening to Bruce Willis’ dialogue from his previous works and studying him in film and in person. Only time will tell if his research and the make-up are successful. But, in the meantime, I thought, “why not compare Looper JGL to 30-year-old Bruce Willis?”.   (from: Mr Movie Fiend)
