Jake Gyllenhaal Stars In The Shoes' 'Time To Dance' Music Video

Is Jake Gyllenhaal channeling his inner "Dexter?" This newly-released music video for "Time to Dance," by French electro-pop artist The Shoes, reveals exactly what Gyllenhaal has been doing in his free time these days -- playing a psycho serial killer.

In the video, a chain-smoking, gym-going Gyllenhaal chases his victims up fire escapes, through back alleys and even interrupts one couple's romantic dinner by attacking them with a very dangerous fencing sabre.

This isn't Gyllenhaal's first starring role in a music video. He also starred in Vampire Weekend's "Giving Up the Gun" video with pop star Joe Jonas, where the two were caught in a heated tennis match.

Gyllenhaal will star in the upcoming film, "End of Watch," which also stars Anna Kendrick and America Ferrera.
