Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is the “Bad Boy of Tech” in New Super Pumped Teaser

Cool News

The tech world is getting their moment in the spotlight.

On Monday, Jan. 10, Showtime released the first teaser for the series Super Pumped: The Battle For Uber, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Uma Thurman and Kyle Chandler. The anthology series’ first season explores the success of the ride-share app Uber and how its founder and CEO Travis Kalanick was knocked from the top.

The trailer shows Gordon-Levitt as Kalanick, who promises his employees, “Contrary to what you might’ve read—I’m no monster.”

Then, there’s Uma, who portrays former Huffington Post co-founder Ariana Huffington. It’s Huffington who dubs Kalanick as the “notorious bad boy of tech.” 

But it quickly becomes clear that having a reputation as a bad boy does not bode well for growing a business. As Chandler’s character Bill Gurley puts it, “The best thing about Travis is he’s willing to run through walls to win. The worst thing about him is he thinks everything is a wall.”
