Jake Gyllenhaal In Person!

JAKE GYLLENHAAL: STRONGER THAN EVER

Over the past two decades, Jake Gyllenhaal has established himself as one of the finest actors of his generation, garnering several accolades including a BAFTA win, and Oscar, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild nominations, while working with some of Hollywood’s greatest filmmakers on both independent and studio films.

After a handful of bit parts, the young actor proved he could hold the screen in a leading role in 1999’s OCTOBER SKY. With DONNIE DARKO two years later, Gyllenhaal demonstrated something equally important: a willingness to take a chance on edgy material. But Gyllenhaal continued to defy type casting with Nicole Holofcener's LOVELY AND AMAZING, Miguel Arteta's THE GOOD GIRL, Brad Silberling's MOONLIGHT MILE, John Madden's PROOF, and Sam Mendes' JARHEAD. In 2006, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN was groundbreaking in its day, and for his work in Ang Lee’s classic drama, Gyllenhaal received an Academy Award nomination and won a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor. In David Fincher's ZODIAC, David Ayer’s END OF WATCH, and Dennis Villeneuve’s highly acclaimed films PRISONERS and ENEMY, Gyllenhaal found incredible material to showcase his impressive craft. NIGHTCRAWLER saw him embody an investigative crime journalist who will stop at nothing to get a story; he earned BAFTA, Golden Globe, SAG®, Critics’ Choice and Independent Spirit Award nominations for the performance. More recently, we saw him push far beyond what we’d ever seen before in Bong Joon-ho’s OKJA and Tom Ford’s NOCTURNAL ANIMALS, for which he earned a BAFTA nomination.

Gyllenhaal also has a producer credit on NIGHTCRAWLER, and with his new production company, Nine Stories, he is on his way to becoming a filmmaker of note – sourcing material, developing it from the ground up, collaborating with bold storytellers and shepherding the projects through release. The latest story Gyllenhaal has helped bring to the screen is STRONGER, in which he stars as Jeff Bauman, a survivor of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing who undergoes a tortuous physical and mental recovery and becomes a symbol of hope in the face of adversity. In a career that seems to move from strength to strength, Jake Gyllenhaal ranks as one of the most prolific and talented performers working in film today.
