Believe it or not, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been a part of our lives for over 20 years. Now known for his acting and directorial work in films like Don Jon (out Friday, September 27) and with his production company, hitRECord, the 32-year-old got his big break in Disney’s Angels in the Outfield playing a diehard California baseball fan who was lucky enough to have Christopher Lloyd looking out for him. Next came NBC’s sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun , and from there, JGL simply grew up before our eyes.

Through over 30 films the actor has transformed from a cute kid to a debonair leading man. In Don Jon, he put on noticeable muscle to become the New Jersey workout fiend with an obsession with pornography. Check out our timeline above and see the many looks (and many suits) he’s rocked over time.
