Tom Sturridge & Jake Gyllenhaal Return To Stage In ‘Sea Wall / A Life’
10 December, 2018 Author: Catagories: Gallery Updates, Interviews, Sea Wall / A Life

At their best, one-person plays have the intimacy and urgency of an encounter with someone who needs to get something off his or her chest, ideally portrayed by an actor who compels us to listen. Two such plays—Simon Stephens’s Sea Wall and Nick Payne’s A Life—open as a twin set next month at the Public Theater.

Under the direction of the smashing Carrie Cracknell, each is a short monologue that, beneath its spare surface, grapples with profound questions about life, death, and identity.

In A Life, Gyllenhaal plays a man struggling to reconcile his emotions surrounding the death of his father and the birth of his daughter. Originally titled The Art of Dying, the piece started as a monologue that Payne performed at London’s Donmar Warehouse in 2013, in the aftermath of his own father’s death.

Jake Teases Villainous Role In ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’
5 December, 2018 Author: Catagories: Spider-Man: Far From Home, Videos

Meet Spider-Man’s newest foe: Jake Gyllenhaal joined Instagram on Wednesday with a post teasing his role in the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Gyllenhaal has long been reported to be playing the classic Spider-Man baddie Mysterio, but Wednesday’s post is his first official confirmation. He stars opposite Tom Holland in Far From Home, which follows Peter Parker and his classmates as they head overseas for a trip.

Several characters have taken on the Mysterio title in Marvel comics over the years, but the most well-known version is the original Quentin Beck, a Hollywood stuntman and special effects artist turned criminal mastermind. He made his debut back in 1964 as a shifty villain facing off against Peter Parker.

It’s a Nightcrawler reunion in the first image from the upcoming film Velvet Buzzsaw, which was just announced as part of the Premieres lineup at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

Written and directed by Nightcrawler filmmaker Dan Gilroy, the film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo and is described as a thriller set in the contemporary art world scene of Los Angeles, “where big money artists and mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce.” The film was produced by Netflix and will debut on the streaming service at some point next year.

This first-look image is mighty enticing, especially with regards to Gyllenhaal’s wholly unique look.
