Name : Jake Gyllenhaal
Real Name : Jacob Benjamin Gyllenhaal
Height : 6' (183 cm)
Date of Birth : 19 December 1980
Place of Birth : Los Angeles, California, USA
 
Biography:
 
As the son of director Stephen Gyllenhaal and producer/writer Naomi Foner, it is not surprising that Jake Gyllenhaal has been acting since childhood. Raised in Los Angeles, Gyllenhaal acted in school plays and made his appealing film debut, playing Billy Crystal's son in the blockbuster summer comedy City Slickers (1991). He next appeared with Debra Winger in A Dangerous Woman (1993), and played Robin Williams' son in a episode of TV's Homicide (1994).

Gyllenhaal then earned rave reviews for his emotionally sincere performance as real life rocket builder Homer Hickam in October Sky (1999). Though he decided to stay in school and attend college at Columbia University, he continued his creative pursuits, playing in Donnie Darko (2001) and Bubble Boy (2001).

In 2002, Gyllenhaal coincidentally played the younger love object of choice in two comedies, appearing as Catherine Keener’s sensitive boss in Lovely Amazing and Jennifer Aniston’s enticing yet disturbed co worker in The Good Girl. As further proof that he had the acting talent, Gyllenhaal next co starred with Dustin Hoffman and Susan Sarandon as a young man enmeshed in his dead fiancée’s family in Moonlight Mile.

With his star on the rise, Gyllenhaal later starred alongside Dennis Quaid in the big summer blockbuster The Day After Tomorrow (2004).
