After getting summarily hosed with no “Best Actor” Oscar nom after his incredible performance in Nightcrawler at last years Academy Awards, Jake Gyllenhaal got angry. He took that anger to the gym. He bulked up. He ate right with lots of kale and raw hamburger. He probably did crossfit.
O.K., all the stuff after him getting snubbed at the Oscars, I made up. BUT, he definitely isn’t pulling any punches in this clip (exclusively provided to E!) from his latest film Southpaw that is sure to corner him a devastating uppercut of Oscar buzz.
All joking aside, this film looks fantastic and Gyllenhaal is almost unrecognizable between the bulk and the dazed boxer drawl he’s affecting in this clip and in the attached trailer.
