Jessica Chastain Supports Jake Gyllenhaal's Off-Broadway Debut

Sep 21 2012 - 10:46am

Jake Gyllenhaal [1] took the stage in NYC last night for the opening performance of his off-Broadway play, If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet. This isn't Jake's first attempt at theater — he made his stage debut in the 2002 London production of This Is Our Youth.

Jake's been busy in recent days, balancing two opening projects. He sat down with press at TIFF earlier this month to chat up his police drama, End of Watch, which is in theaters today. Jake has a clean-shaven face — and head — in the film. Lately, though, Jake's sporting a self-described "grizzly" look [2] for his stage role. Jessica Chastain and Michael Peña were among the stars on hand last night to support Jake and the rest of the cast. Early reviews have been less than stellar [3] for the show as a whole, but Jake's had some applause for his performance.
