Early Life & Famous Sister
Actor Jacob Benjamin Gyllenhaal, better known as Jake Gyllenhaal, was born in Los Angeles, California on December 19, 1980. Jake Gyllenhaal, the son of director Stephen Gyllenhaal and producer/screenwriter Naomi Foner, and his sister Maggie have been acting since they were children. City Slickers (1991), in which he played Billy Crystal’s son, and A Dangerous Woman (1993), directed by his father, were two of Gyllenhaal’s earlier films. Gyllenhaal graduated from Harvard-Westlake High School in Los Angeles and attended Columbia University in New York for a year before dropping out to pursue acting.
‘October Sky,’ ‘Donnie Darko’
To make the transition from child to adult actor, Gyllenhaal purposefully avoided teen films for films like October Sky (1999) and Donnie Darko (2001), co-starring Drew Barrymore and sister Maggie, for which he received an Independent Spirit Award nomination. In terms of complexity, Gyllenhaal’s subsequent roles mirrored previous projects: in The Good Girl (2002), he played Jennifer Aniston’s troubled love interest, while in Moonlight Mile (2002), he played a young man grieving the death of his fiancee alongside her family.
Gyllenhaal also appeared on the London stage in Kenneth Lonergan’s revival of This Is Our Youth in the spring of 2002. For his performance, the actor received an Evening Standard Theater Award.
Oscar Nomination for ‘Brokeback Mountain’
Gyllenhaal appeared in Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain (2005), a love story about two cowboys who fall in love with each other, as part of the ensemble cast of the 2004 worldwide blockbuster The Day After Tomorrow. The film, which also starred Heath Ledger, Michelle Williams, and Anne Hathaway, earned Gyllenhaal an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor as well as the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.
‘Jarhead,’ ‘Zodiac,’ ‘Source Code,’ ‘Prisoners’
Before taking on an action/fantasy hero lead role in 2010’s massively budgeted Prince of Persia, Gyllenhaal appeared in film dramas such as Jarhead (2005), Zodiac (2007), and Brothers (2009), all with military or government/espionage themes. Later that year, the romantic comedy Love & Other Drugs was released, reuniting Gyllenhaal with Brokeback Mountain co-star Hathaway and earning the actor his first Golden Globe nomination. In 2011, the thriller Source Code was released. Gyllenhaal then starred as a cop in End of Watch (2012), which was shot in gonzo-camera style, and as a detective in Prisoners (2013), which co-starred Hugh Jackman, Maria Bello, Viola Davis, and Terrence Howard.
‘Nightcrawler,’ ‘Nocturnal Animals,’ ‘Constellations’
In the fall of 2014, Gyllenhaal gained attention for his performance in Nightcrawler, a stark drama in which he played an aspiring cameraman seeking success through harrowing crime footage. Gyllenhaal received his second Golden Globe nomination for the role, as well as nominations for the BAFTA and SAG Awards.
In 2015, film projects included the romantic comedy Accidental Love, the boxing drama Southpaw, the biopic adventure Everest — based on the 1996 Mount Everest disaster — and the drama Demolition. He co-starred with Amy Adams in Tom Ford’s psychological thriller Nocturnal Animals in 2016.
Gyllenhaal made his Broadway debut in Constellations, a play about cosmology and relationships, opposite actress Ruth Wilson in January 2015.
In 2017, he returned to Broadway in a revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s musical Sunday in the Park with George, playing French artist Georges Seurat.
‘Stronger,’ ‘The Sisters Brothers,’ ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’
Gyllenhaal returned to the big screen in Stronger (2017), based on the memoir of a victim of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and appeared prominently in the comedy western The Sisters Brothers (2018).
