Jason Gordon-Levitt

... and five other things you should know today.

1. Joseph Gordon-Levitt just announced that he's signed on to star in and produce a live-action Fraggle Rock movie. The film has apparently been in the works for almost a decade, and Gordon-Levitt says that it's an dream to be joining the production. "Jim Henson's characters make you laugh and sing, but they're also layered, surprising, and wise. From Oscar the Grouch, to Yoda, to the Fraggles. I've never stopped loving his work, even as a young frisky man, and on into adulthood." [Variety]

2. Three years ago, the marriage of Danny Rose and Aaron Rosenberg went viral after a video emerged of them riding into the Jewish ceremony on a unicorn. Today, it's been learned that they've just welcomed a baby into their magical family. [Advocate]

3. A new study has found that Londoners are the least likely in the United Kingdom to accept their gay or transgender children. While only 1% of people in Northern England and 2% in Scotland said they would not support gay children, 13% said they wouldn't in London. While the figures are higher for non-acceptance of trans children across the board (9% in Nothern England, 10% in Scotland), London still tops the list at 20%. [Pink News]

4. Joan Didion's Goodbye To All That is being made into a feature film. The essay, which was first published in its original form in 1967, is about falling in love with New York City in your twenties, and then falling out of it. [Gothamist]

5. The Australian Parliament will debate a proposed marriage equality bill next week. It will mark the third attempt in the past five years to extend the right, and supporters are hoping that the Prime Minister-who opposes the legislation-will allow Members of Parliament from his party to vote with their conscious.

6. There has been some truly incredibly material coming out of Ireland ahead of the May 22 referendum on marriage equality, but this has got to be one of the sweetest. Watch a 5-year-old adorably share her thoughts on same-sex love:
