Gyllenhaal, Damon, Clooney Get Political


The stage world is buzzing with the news that Jake Gyllenhaal will appear on Broadway in the Beau Willimon play "Farragut North". A politically charged drama directed by Mike Nichols (Silkwood, Working Girl, Closer), "Farragut North" has Gyllenhaal playing "an idealistic young press secretary who works for a Howard Dean-like presidential contender." Appropriately, the play will open the fall of 2008 — when we'll all be busy electing a new President ourselves.

Even before the show has hit Broadway, however, George Clooney and Matt Damon have reportedly bought up the film rights. No word on whether the duo will appear onscreen in the film version. I suppose whether Gyllenhaal reprises his stage role in the movie depends on how well he does on Broadway!

Sounds interesting, all three of these men have a history of choosing great role so if they are behind it, I bet it will be good!

Jake Gyllenhaal was so good as a young reporter in Zodiac; I'm happy to see him cast in this stage role. Hope he does well.
