Once upon a time Joseph Gordon-Levitt starred on a little sitcom called 3rd Rock from the Sun and in 1997, he appeared as a contestant on a teen charity game of Celebrity Jeopardy! He played against opponents Kirsten Dunst and Benjamin Salisbury from The Nanny.

While Salisbury ended up winning the game with only $1, no one matched Levitt’s (amusing referred to as “Joey” by Alex Trebek) enthusiasm. Check out this recently surfaced clip of JGL getting very, very excited to know the answer. Or rather, to know the question.


Have a little extra time? Buzzfeed does a pretty awesome rundown of the episode of Celebrity Jeopardy!, detailing which charities the eager teens selected to receive their winnings and noting the sad fact that none of our teenage celebs seemed to know the book Moby Dick.
