Twenty-five years ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's career took a divine turn and he's still grateful.
The two-time Golden Globe nominee posted an adorable photo via Twitter on Monday to mark the 25th anniversary of "Angels in the Outfield" opening in theaters. It shows a very young Gordon-Levitt alongside his co-stars Danny Glover and Milton Davis Jr. He played Roger, a foster kid who prayed his baseball team, the California Angels, would win the pennant so that his dad would return for him. Glover starred as the Angels' manager, while Davis Jr. played Roger's friend J.P.
"Forever grateful for the experience of making that movie with such a wonderful cast and crew," Gordon-Levitt wrote of "Angels in the Outfield" in his post.

The film was one of the actor's earlier films, and as fans know, he's gone on to have a successful career. He has starred in films such as "Snowden," "50/50," and "(500) Days of Summer." He'll also be seen in the upcoming film "7500" and an untitled project from directors Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost. And still, he hasn't forgotten his early work or his co-stars.

Soon, a real angel named Al (Christopher Lloyd) shows up in response to Roger's prayers, and Anaheim's hopeless coach (Danny Glover) is shocked to see his team on a winning streak. Read More
