Who says acting isn't hard work? In order to play a convincing New York City bicycle messenger in writer-director David Koepp's (Ghost Town) new thriller, Premium Rush, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises) "rode every day, all day" — logging as many as 60 miles in one day! — and did many of his own bicycle stunts. Even so, Gordon-Levitt gives credit where credit is due, admitting to our own Jeremy Parsons that he had four stunt doubles to fall back on for some of the tougher scenes. He also gave major props to actress Dania Ramirez (Quarantine), saying that his co-star would most likely beat him in a race. Ramirez was equally as generous, touting Gordon-Levitt's "tricks" and his ability to brake without using brakes.
