Jake Gyllenhaal Sings on Broadway in a Video Directed by Cary Fukunaga
No matter how bad 2017 gets with each passing day, there’s the gift of a singing Jake Gyllenhaal to make it all feel a little better.
Today brought full four minutes of the actor’s singing in a video posted to his Facebook. This isn’t just any video though, it’s practically a music video directed by Cary Fukunaga. Always a lover of the tracking shot (who could forget that amazing True Detective one-shot?), the video follows Gyllenhaal down the stairs and across the stage at the Hudson Theater in Manhattan.
Gyllenhaal sings “Finishing the Hat,” a song from the musical Singing in the Park with George in front of a full orchestra. And now I’m just mad Gyllenhaal hasn’t showed off those vocals of his more often.
