Jake Gyllenhaal is an American actor who has appeared in 28 motion pictures (including three yet-to-be released), five television programs, one commercial, and two music videos. Born in the Gyllenhaal family (to director Stephen Gyllenhaal), he has been acting since childhood.[1] Gyllenhaal made his film debut in 1991 with a minor role in the comedy-drama City Slickers.[2] In 1993, he appeared in the Stephen Gyllenhaal-directed A Dangerous Woman, a motion picture adaptation co-written by Naomi Foner and based on the novel of the same name by Mary McGarry Morris. In the following year, he portrayed Robin Williams' son in an episode of the police procedural television series Homicide: Life on the Street; the episode was directed by his father.[1] The proceeding years, Gyllenhaal attempted to make transition from child to adult actor. In 1999, he starred in the Joe Johnston-directed drama October Sky; the film was received warmly from critics,[1] and Gyllenhaal's portrayal of the NASA engineer Homer Hickam was praised.[3]

In 2001, he appeared in the comedy film Bubble Boy which was a critical failure and a box office bomb.[3][4] Later that same year, he starred in the Richard Kelly-directed drama Donnie Darko alongside his sister Maggie, and Drew Barrymore.[5] His portrayal of the Donnie Darko character, a "sullen" and "schizophrenic" teenager, made him a cult superhero.[3] Although the film was critically acclaimed, it failed commercially. Gyllenhaal starred in the 2004 disaster film The Day After Tomorrow,[3] which, despite receiving mixed reviews from critics,[6] was a commercial success at the box office.[7] In 2005, he co-starred as Jack Twist opposite Heath Ledger in the romance drama Brokeback Mountain. The actors portrayed two men that fall in love during a sheepherding expedition. The roles earned both Gyllenhaal and Ledger critical acclaim and Academy Award nominations.[8] That same year he starred in the drama films Jarhead and Proof.[9]

Gyllenhaal played the true-crime author Robert Graysmith in the 2007 mystery film Zodiac. Directed by David Fincher, the film explores the story about the serial killer Zodiac who stalked the Bay Area during the late 1960s and early 1970s.[8] In 2010, he portrayed Prince Dastan in the fantasy adventure Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time;[8] the film received mixed reviews from critics[10] and was a box office success.[11] That same year, Gyllenhaal starred alongside Anne Hathaway in the romantic comedy Love and Other Drugs.[8] He portrayed Colter Stevens, a U.S. Army Aviation captain, in the 2011 sci-fi time-travel thriller Source Code.[12] Directed by Duncan Jones, the film received universal acclaim from critics.[13] In 2013, Gyllenhaal starred in the drama Prisoners together with Hugh Jackman;[14] the film received both critical and commercial success.[15][16] The following year, he starred in the Denis Villeneuve-directed thriller Enemy as both Adam Bell and Anthony Clair.[17]
