Attention, world: Jake Gyllenhaal is making his Broadway musical debut this month. How do we know? Well, we’ve known. But also, Gyllenhaal just posted a video teasing his singing chops on Facebook, and damn. The kid’s got talent.
“This is what happens when Riva Marker (the badass president of NineStories) and I invite #CaryJojiFukunaga to rehearsals for our new Broadway musical,” he wrote in a status accompanying the video. Cary Joji Fukunaga, of “True Detective” fame, did indeed shoot the single-shot video, Variety reports. And you can tell.
In the nearly four-minute video above, Gyllenhaal sings a song ― ”Finishing the Hat,” to be exact ― from an upcoming revival of Stephen Sondheim’s musical, “Sunday in the Park With George.” The actor, best known for his role in “Donnie Darko” (it’s true!), will begin preview performances of the show at New York City’s Hudson Theatre this Saturday, Feb. 11. The musical’s official opening night is set for Thursday, Feb. 23.
