Jake Gyllenhaal set for off-Broadway debut
The story revolves around a 15-year-old girl with a weight problem. Gyllenhaal plays an uncle -- a drifter who arrives at her home unannounced and forms a friendship with the girl.
If he needs advice, Jake can ask sister Maggie Gyllenhaal who has appeared off-Broadway several times.
As for big screen work, Gyllenhaal will appear next in "End of Watch" with Anna Kendrick and America Ferrara -- due in theaters, coincidentally, in September.
