The Surprising Secret To Jake’s ‘Southpaw’ Workout Plan
15 April, 2015 Author: Catagories: Interviews, Southpaw

The first photo that the world saw of Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw (out July 24) made the actor look like an entirely different person than the man last seen as a rail-thin psychopath in Nightcrawler. Bruises had replaced the dark circles on the Golden Globe nominee’s face, and every other inch of him was tatted, ripped, and muscular. This wasn’t Lou Bloom. This was light heavyweight champion Billy Hope.

That’s why it was so shocking to hear that Gyllenhaal only gained an additional 10 pounds for the boxing role. “I was just in a different kind of shape,” Gyllenhaal says, putting it mildly.

Gyllenhaal’s journey to authentic light heavyweight status began five months before cameras started to roll, when director Antoine Fuqua offered him the role.

Jake Gyllenhaal will make his stage musical debut as geeky florist Seymour Krelborn in the upcoming Encores! Off-Center production of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s Little Shop of Horrors. Originally slated as a one-night-only performance, the Dick Scanlan-directed concert production will now play three performances at New York’s City Center on July 1 and 2, 2015.

Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam will join Gyllenhaal as Orin Scrivello, better known as the sadistic dentist played by Steve Martin in the 1986 film. Ellen Greene, who originated the role of ditzy bombshell Audrey in the original stage production and film, will reprise her role, and Chuck Cooper will lend his voice to Audrey II, the carnivorous plant who tempts Seymour with promises of fame, glory, and the heart of his unrequited love, Audrey.

Sources tell Variety that Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are in discussions to star in fashion designer Tom Ford’s thriller “Nocturnal Animals,” his second film as a director after 2009’s “A Single Man.”

This is in the early days as no financial offers have been made yet but insiders say it is headed in that direction.

Ford will write and direct and also produce along with George Clooney and Grant Heslov through their Smokehouse Pictures banner.

Based on the novel by Austin Wright titled “Tony and Susan,” the plot is described as a “story inside a story,” with the first part following a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion.
