EXCLUSIVE: Why Jake Gyllenhaal Was the Only Choice for ‘Stronger’

It’s difficult to get through the trailer for Stronger — the real-life story of Jeff Bauman, who became a double amputee following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing — without being brought to tears. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Bauman on screen and the movie’s poster, debuting on ET, shows him mid-physical therapy with the tagline, “Strength Defines Us.”

Director David Gordon Green tells ET that his film is more than just a tearjerker, though. “You’re in for a ride,” he said by phone. “That certainly expresses a side of the emotional intensity of the movie, but you might be surprised to find a good sense of humor woven in there as well. Expect a few chuckles alongside a tear or two.”

Hello!

Hi everyone, my name is Christy and I am the new owner of Jake Gyllenhaal Network. I had been a huge fan of his for years and I am happy to finally have the opportunity to run this fansite!

My time is limited right now as I am working 50-55 hours per week, but keep checking back for updates. I have tons of photos to add to the site, and I am also hoping to have some Okja stills soon!
