Joseph Gordon-Levitt paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday (March 14) to talk about tapping Grammy-nominated Logic for a new project that will premiere at SXSW.

Gordon-Levitt briefly talked about his career as a child actor, as host Jimmy Kimmel brought up an old comedy he did with Oscar winning actress, Patricia Arquette. After the two joked about that moment in time, the host asked Gordon-Levitt about his new one-hour YouTube Originals Special entitled Band Together with Logic.

After Kimmel teased that the title was confusing due to the Maryland rapper’s name, the actor added that, “If you’re a fan of Bobby Tarantino, otherwise known as Logic, he’s this great rapper and he lead the world in making a song together.”

Levitt went on to explain that it shares similarities with traditional music competitions we all know (i.e. American Idol, The Voice), but has a twist. “It’s not a contest, it’s a collaboration,” he said. “At the end of the show, all these people all over the world, they weren’t competing against each other, they made a song together.”

The special will premiere on Friday (March 15) at SXSW Film Festival at the Paramount Theatre at 6:30 p.m. CDT. Tickets are now available for purchase.
