Jake Gyllenhaal joined his End of Watch costars America Ferrera, Anna Kendrick, Michael Peña, and Cody Horn last night for the film's LA premiere. The actors welcomed an eclectic mix of special guests, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, 50 Cent, Cody's Magic Mike costar Joe Manganiello, and Jake's longtime friend Busy Philipps. It was the movie's stateside debut after the cast premiered the film at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.
We caught up with Jake and Michael on the red carpet, where Jake spoke to the "life-changing" experience of making the film. He told us he spent five months preparing for the shoot, which lasted less than 22 days in total. He and Michael play LAPD officers in the movie. The world of law enforcement and street crime was a familiar one for writer-director David Ayer — he also penned Training Day. Stay tuned today for PopSugar Rush to see more of our interviews with Jake and the cast.
