Jake Gyllenhaal, Ansel Elgort, Zendaya to Star in ‘Finest Kind’
9 February, 2018 Author: Catagories: Finest Kind, News & Headlines

An A-list trio has been assembled for a hot new package, Finest Kind.

Jake Gyllenhaal, Ansel Elgort and Zendaya will star in the crime drama from Brian Helgeland, the Oscar-winning writer-director behind Mystic River and A Knight’s Tale.

The story centers on two half-brothers, to be played by Gyllenhaal and Elgort, that are reunited as adults after being raised by different fathers. When one discovers his estranged father has only months to live, he strikes a dangerous deal with a crime syndicate, putting him and his brother on a collision course with the Boston underworld.

Gyllenhaal, who is no stranger to the crime drama genre as the star of Nightcrawler and Nocturnal Animals, will next be seen in the Annapurna Western The Sisters Brothers. He is repped by WME and Bloom Hergott.

Jake Gyllenhaal Covers ‘GQ Australia’ Magazine
10 January, 2018 Author: Catagories: Gallery Updates, Interviews

In a chic New York office, Jake Gyllenhaal is sitting alongside a man named Jeff Bauman. Bauman is an author, a motivational speaker and an advocate but is best known as a man who lost both legs in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. During his rehabilitation, he also became a rare beacon of hope, shining out of a dark tragedy.

The pair are interviewing each other for a Facebook Q&A, as part of the promotion for Stronger, the movie adaptation of Bauman’s best-selling book of the same name, which he co-wrote in the aftermath of the attack.

Gyllenhaal portrays Bauman in the film, a role which has already garnered attention this awards season. The interview looks to be your typical junket fare – a bit of back and forth about the film, before those involved simply sit back and take turns blowing smoke up each other’s arses. But it’s not.

W Magazine’s Best Performances of 2017
4 January, 2018 Author: Catagories: Gallery Updates, Interviews, Stronger

Jake’s performance in ‘Stronger’ is among W Magazine’s best performances of 2017.

Jake Gyllenhaal in Stronger

“My dad always told me, ‘The job of an artist is to disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed.’ That’s always in my mind. It’s why I’m attracted to projects that are maybe going to illuminate something to you about yourself. It’s always a little frightening because you don’t know what you’re going to discover.”

THR’s ‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast with Jake Gyllenhaal
3 January, 2018 Author: Catagories: Interviews, Stronger

The dashing Oscar nominee looks back on 25 years in the biz, from kid parts (‘City Slickers’) to teen roles (‘Donnie Darko’) to his first grown-up characters (‘Brokeback Mountain’); lessons learned from the flop of ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’; and how recalibrating his approach led to a streak of great performances (‘End of Watch,’ ‘Prisoners,’ ‘Nightcrawler,’ ‘Southpaw,’ ‘Nocturnal Animals’ and ‘Stronger’).

You can hear the full interview below [starting at 28:46], following a conversation between host Scott Feinberg and Lynne Segall, executive vp and group publisher of The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard, about THR’s history and brand, how awards season impacts ad sales and what it was like following Tichi Wilkerson and Katharine Graham into publishing at a time when few women were in positions of power in media.
