Jake is one of the most talented actors of the current generation, with several remarkable movies to his credit. Films like Nightcrawler, Wildlife, Source Code, October Sky, Brokeback Mountain, and more helped establish his credibility as a versatile artiste.

Jake Gyllenhaal starrer Road House was reportedly in the development phase for an extended period.

According to Puck News, the director of Road House, Doug Liman, and the lead actor, Jake, were p*ssed on Amazon’s refusal to release it in the theatres.
