Biography

With a talent and instinct beyond his years, Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (pronounced Jill-en-hall) is on the fast track toward stardom. Even in the early stages of his career, he has starred opposite several of today’s most respected actors such as Heath Ledger, Dustin Hoffman, Laura Dern, Holly Hunter, Chris Cooper, John C. Reilly and Susan Sarandon. He has caught the attention of audiences and critics with a series of powerful performances, and this year will be no exception.

He established himself as a member of Hollywood’s new generation of action stars. In Fox’s THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, Gyllenhaal starred opposite Dennis Quaid in the futuristic film which depicted the devastating effects of global warming on Earth. He was in the adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play PROOF for director John Madden. The Miramax film also starred Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins.

Gyllenhaal earned his first Oscar nomination for the coveted role of “Jack” in Focus Features’ highly acclaimed BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. The film, which chronicled an intense relationship between two Wyoming stockmen, was directed by Ang Lee and costarred Heath Ledger.

Gyllenhaal was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for best actor in the critically acclaimed DONNIE DARKO. A favorite at the Sundance Film Festival, the New Market release combines elements of mystical fantasy and science fiction with teenage romance. The film, directed by first-time director Richard Kelly, co-stars Drew Barrymore, Jena Malone and Noah Wyle.
