Jake Gyllenhaal makes his mark

December 7th, 2012  |  Published in Editorial

One of the most versatile and talented actors around, Jake Gyllenhaal constantly chooses diverse characters that challenge him and provide us with memorable movies.

Jake Gyllenhaal as Taylor in End of WatchJake Gyllenhaal has been one of my favourite actors since his brilliant performance in the extraordinary Donnie Darko. And then on, from Sam in Roland Emmerich’s top drawer disaster pic The Day After Tomorrow to Jack Twist in Ang Lee’s award-winning love story Brokeback Mountain, from Anthony Swofford in Sam Mendes’ powerful war story Jarhead to my particular favourite, Robert Graysmith in David Fincher’s masterful serial killer thriller Zodiac, from Douglas Freeman in Gavin Hood’s underrated torture drama Rendition to Captain Colter Stevens in Duncan Jones’ hugely entertaining time-bending ride that is Source Code – you see what I mean?

Here he speaks with his usual passion and eloquence about his latest film End of Watch, a visceral, edge-of-your-seat cop drama from David Ayer, the writer of Training Day, that really effected him and his approach to work in the future.
