Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal


Jake Gyllenhaal is known to be very selective on his roles, almost avoiding major blockbusters. While this could be a nice trait, most should ask why the hell he appeared in The Day After Tomorrow and Bubble Boy. The the latter was surprisingly humorous, but still dumb, it is films like these that make Jake Gyllenhaal hard to figure out.

Though these two films might cast Gyllenhaal in an awkward late, it is the upcoming film Jarhead and the cult classic Donnie Darko that earn him a spot as one of the likely contenders for top actor of the new generation.

If you haven't seen Donnie Darko, see it. If you have, then you know what kind of mind-f@ck this film is. However, to truly watch Donnie Darko you need to see it, oh, let's say eight times.

Jake Gyllenhaal will play the starring role of Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford in the upcoming film Jarhead.
Memorable Moments
-Gyllenhaal almost spends an entire film as an idiot in a bubble. After Donnie Darko, fans had begun to wonder what happened. Bubble Boy

-In a debate about Smurfette as a sex puppet for Papa Smurf, Donnie puts the conversation to rest by stating, "First of all, Papa Smurf didn't create Smurfette. Gargamel did. She was sent in as Gargamel's evil spy with the intention of destroying the Smurf village, but the overwhelming goodness of the Smurf way of life transformed her. And as for the whole gang-bang scenario, it just couldn't happen. Smurfs are asexual. They don't even have reproductive organs under those little white pants. That's what's so illogical, you know, about being a Smurf. What's the point of living if you don't have a dick?" Donnie Darko

-Donnie explains regret after not getting Hungry, Hungry Hippos for Christmas. Donnie Darko
