Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel in 500 Days of Summer

In the upcoming movie "500 Days of Summer," a young greeting card writer played by Joseph Gordon Levitt falls desperately in love with one of his coworkers named Summer. Summer, played by Zooey Deschanel, likes him, too, but the two have decidedly different views about relationships.

The film comes out on July 17th and much of it was shot in Southern California. But unlike many other films which showcase Beverly Hills, Hollywood, or the beach, "500 Days of Summer" is set almost entirely in downtown L.A. Several scenes were shot at the Redwood Bar on 2nd Street. That's where KPCC's Alex Cohen caught up with stars Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel.
