Good luck to Jake tonight! Check back later for more pictures.
Theater Mania – Jake Gyllenhaal is a big believer in going big when it comes to artistic choices. But even the star of Donnie Darko knows that sometimes it’s best to throw in the metaphorical towel. After all, you can always trust that when god closes a door, he opens a window to another dimension.
Jake attended last night in New York the 2015 Throne Boxing Fight Night at Madison Square Garden, and you can find pictures in our gallery.

The Independent has published a great article/interview with Jake, talking about Enemy and his choices on complicated characters.
Cinespace Film Studios, Toronto … It’s lunchtime on the set of doppelgänger thriller Enemy, and star Jake Gyllenhaal slides his tray along the rails of the food counter with the rest of the cast and crew, his plate loading up with fish, salad and couscous.
He cuts an imposing figure as he strides to the table, his 6ft 1in frame clad in a crisp white shirt tucked into tan slacks, his blue eyes clouded above a heavy black beard. Seated, however, his smile is wide, his enthusiasm infectious. So eager is he to talk about his second team-up with the French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve, after the harrowing child-abduction thriller Prisoners, that his fork hovers in the air like a metallic exclamation mark, food untouched.
“Enemy is about a man who is married, his wife is pregnant, and he’s having an affair,” Gyllenhaal begins, keen to detect the nub of this outré fable, based on José Saramago’s 2002 source novel The Double. “He has to figure himself out before he can commit to life as an adult.”
Such an explanation doesn’t begin to tell the tale. With the action set in a Toronto of brutalist architecture, vast spaces and clogged freeways, Enemy is about a repressed history teacher Adam (Gyllenhaal) who spies his double, Anthony (Gyllenhaal again), in a movie. Determinedly tracking the actor down, he discovers that the two men are identical, right down to the same scar on their stomachs.
