It’s been common knowledge for a while now that Jake Gyllenhaal will be playing villain Quentin Beck, a.k.a. Mysterio in Marvel’s summer 2019 outing, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The actor has been spotted on location in full Mysterio costume, but he’s been reticent to confirm his involvement publicly…until this week.

Posting a reaction video on Instagram where he finds out that he is not in fact playing the role of Spider-Man in Far From Home, Gyllenhaal finally had time for a tongue-in-cheek moment to reveal his part in the forthcoming superhero flick.

Here he is, reading a Mysterio-heavy copy of Amazing Spider-Man #311…

I just realized I’m not playing Spider-Man.

We’ll next see Gyllenhaal in Velvet Buzzsaw, where he’ll be reuniting with Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy, and he’s about to start work on the Steven Knight-written Rio, where he’ll appear alongside the MCU’s Sorcerer Supreme, Benedict Cumberbatch.

Directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland, Zendaya Coleman, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson and, yes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on 5th July, 2019.

In the Sisters Brothers, the new film by Jacques Audiard, Jake Gyllenhaal, 37, embodies a form of resistance in Hollywood. Conscious and determined, he talks about his vision of cinema, his commitment to the status of women, Trump’s policy. And even his love for musicals (nobody is perfect).

by Charlotte Oberti for GQ France

He declares himself “sensitive and vulnerable”; he produces films made by women; he is a star capable of criticizing Hollywood’s superficiality; he is cultivated, kind and thinks to be a little French somewhere. Moreover, he is the ambassador of the Cartier House (for the Santos watch) and will be in September with the poster of Jacques Audiard’s first American film, Les Frères Sisters.. Always the right shirt, the big fat sweater, the fresh smile and the cute little puppy look … It’s perfect, this Jake Gyllenhaal? GQ met him for a long time in a studio in Greenwich Village, New York, before catching him on the phone from London where he is shooting. Casual and frankly talkative for an actor of his caliber, Jake Gyllenhaal, 37, gives off a form of wisdom that gives it a relief not so common. He is interested in everything, music, literature, politics … But also, and above all, he intends to invest in the mid-term elections in November, to oppose the policy of Donald Trump . Perfect ? No, but not far.

GQ: Is it good to live far from Hollywood?
JG: I do not really know, actually. When I left Los Angeles, I just wanted to get away from this place. I live near my mother, who lives in New York, and I often visit my father (director Stephen Gyllenhaal, ed), who is still in Los Angeles. Now, when I go back, I really appreciate. I fell in love with the light, the silence and the space of this city.

How is it growing up in Los Angeles?
I have wonderful childhood memories, and others less. I had passages, during my career, where I was disenchanted by the Hollywood system. There are things that bother me.

What for example ?
The superficiality. Many people play a role. They think that’s what is expected of them, and I was probably a bit like that too. It made me sad. It was hard for me to be part of that. But there are also aspects that I love in this business. In fact, I am divided on the issue. I have two opinions. It is not for nothing that I am often offered dummy roles with double personalities, I think I am a bit like that (laughs).

Today you have a healthier relationship with Hollywood?
Sometimes in life, we have easy judgment. Now I see things differently. As I got older, I learned to understand the system, to accept it and to appreciate it as well. What I see especially now is a community of people struggling to make movies and, sometimes awkwardly, to express something. When I was in my twenties, I thought I was more special than I think today.

You have won enmodestie?
Oh no ! (laughs) But when you’re 20, you want to prove a lot. It was my case. Not anymore. I care less about all that. You know, I started working in cinema when I was very young, at 11 years old. It took me a long time to understand that privacy was more important than work. I will quote Jay-Z: “Iusedtogiveashit, nowIgive a shit less” (“Before, I had something to fuck, now less.”) I just want to be with people I love, it’s so simple only that.

You turn in Jacques Audiard’s latest film, Les Frères Sisters. It’s a director you like …
Yes, he’s one of my favorite live directors. I love all his movies. I never thought I would ever have the opportunity to work with him. In my family, we have a motto: “Relatives and privacy go before work, unless Jacques Audiard calls. ”

And so Jacques Audiard called you?
I ended up getting a phone call, yes. As soon as I knew he was working on the film adaptation of the book Les Frères Sisters, I sent him an email. We did not really know each other but I managed to get my hands on his address and I wrote to him: “I love this book. I would love to work with you. If there is any role to play in your film, I hope you will think of me. He never answered.

But no !
At the time, I thought I must have bothered him. Then I saw him at a luncheon in Los Angeles a year later. It was a normal lunch and he did not talk about the movie. It was only a year and a half after that I received a proposal for a role.

We Got This Covered – It’s official: Tom Holland is terrible at keeping secrets.

The Marvel favorite has been a fixture of the MCU ever since his unforgettable debut in Captain America: Civil War, though it’s fair to say that Tom Holland, what with his boundless energy and social media presence, has become something of a liability for Marvel Studios.

It’s all fun and games, of course, but it seems Holland has already ‘spoiled’ the title of Marvel’s Homecomingsequel. It’ll seemingly release as Spider-Man: Far From Home come 2019, and when it does, it’ll pit our friendly neighborhood Web-Head against Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio, the classic Marvel villain known for his illusions and trickery, which push Parker’s spider-sense into overtime.

Or at least, that’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, who have now confirmed that Gyllenhaal has closed his deal to play Mysterio, with Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers on script duties.

He won’t be the only antagonist for Spider-Man to contend with, of course, given that it’s been revealed that Spider-Man: Far From Home will also herald the return of Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes – the crooked construction work better known as the Vulture. His return has prompted rumors of a full-blown Sinister Six storyline being incorporated into the Jon Watts-directed sequel, though we’ll have to wait until the film opens big next summer before we have official confirmation of that potential team-up.

One thing’s for sure, though: after years spent flirting with the genre, along with Matt Reeves’ in-development Batman movie, Gyllenhaal is ready to break his superhero duck. And we’re fascinated to see how he takes to the complex, morally ambiguous role of Quentin Beck.

Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into your local theater on July 5th, 2019. Its mission? To successfully launch the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a post-Avengers 4 world. So, you know, no pressure…

Star2 – Integrity, dedication and boundless curiosity – Jake Gyllenhaal is said to embody all those qualities as the new face of the Santos de Cartier timepiece. And rightly so, for the man indeed has a pioneering spirit.

Gyllenhaal is regarded as one of the most adventurous actors of his generation. His roles span a wide spectrum: from troubled teenager in 2001 cult hit Donnie Darko to Brokeback Mountain’s conflicted, repressed sheep herder.

According to him, the latter remains as a favourite. Speaking to Star2.com via email, the 37-year-old says that the fearlessness of the film’s two characters was a lesson for everyone, especially when it came out in 2005.

While Gyllenhaal received an Oscar nomination and won a Bafta for Brokeback Mountain, he also looks fondly on his more recent work – a 2017 biographical drama of a man who loses his legs in the Boston Marathon bombing.

“I think of Jeff Bauman, who I played in Stronger. I admire him because of his inexplicable strength and his sense of humour in the face of enormous tragedy,” Gyllenhaal states.

With his production company Nine Stories, he is on the way to becoming a filmmaker of note as well – from sourcing material to developing it from the ground up and collaborating with bold storytellers.

Regarding the foray into directing, Gyllenhaal points out that he sees it as merely a natural progression to growing up, and not at all – as some would assume – a move forward from acting.

“I think it takes maturity and a knowledge of oneself to be able to actually tell a story, to be at the helm of a project. I believe it takes a while to cultivate the ability to actually direct a film, so it feels like the natural movement as a human, for me, not as an actor.”

His other notable works include 2014’s Nightcrawler, which he also produced. Playing an investigative crime journalist who will stop at nothing to get the story, he received a Bafta, Golden Globe, SAG, Critics’ Choice and Independent Spirit Award nomination for it.

Within that same year, Gyllenhaal made his Broadway debut in Constellations and musical theatre debut in Little Shop Of Horrors. It was his first stage performance since 2002, when he starred in the revival of This Is Our Youth on London’s West End.

So how does he juggle it all? Gyllenhaal is constantly surrounded by the people who really matter. His family and friends are the ones who have played a big role in keeping him from careening off course.

“I always spend time with them, doing what they do, and that helps me pace myself. You can get overwhelmed by the work that you do and consumed with it, but when you look outward, like my mom would say, it’s like taking a breath,” he explains.

Timely Parnership

When it comes to his role as the latest watch ambassador for Cartier, Gyllenhaal says that it began when the luxury brand approached him and communicated the idea of creating an advertisement to convey a “bold and fearless” message.

“They were looking for someone who they believe personified those qualities in their spirit and in their work. They knew that I was someone who loved the process of artistic collaboration … and so the journey began.

“Moreover, when we first spoke about the Santos watch, the ways in which it was invented, how it was created out of a great collaboration, it all seemed kismet,” Gyllenhaal relates.

The Santos de Cartier timepiece is reportedly the first purpose-­made wristwatch, designed by Louis Cartier for his friend Alberto Santos-Dumont, the Brazilian adventurer who mastered, unaided, heavier-than-air powered flight in 1906.

It originally went on sale in 1911 and has remained a mainstay of Cartier’s watches. Receiving a bold update in the late 1970s, the design is seen as perennially innovative – in face of changing times.

Gyllenhaal however, would like to think of it as a celebration of two great minds coming together. The watch, he notes, represents the spirit of mutual respect between Cartier and Santos-Dumont.

“The Santos is a collaboration of art and science really, a collaboration of form and function. I think we can have an inspired idea about something, but I think in order for it to last, it has to be built on something solid, a foundation that can be proven, a solvable equation.”

Retaining its original square shape, this year’s model pays homage to classical Parisian geometry, while the screws, visible along the bezel and metal strap links, acknowledge the imposing steel structures of the period.

As it is, Gyllenhaal believes that watches will always remain as an essential accessory. He says men don’t generally have a lot options when it comes to expressing themselves fashion-wise.

“I also think that there’s something about the watch that represents being a grown up. When you see a man with a watch, I think it immediately projects a sense of maturity, particularly a watch that’s crafted like the Santos,” he enthuses.

As Cartier’s newly appointed face, Gyllenhaal also stars in a short film highlighting Santos-Dumont’s intrepid, thrill-seeking legacy. Told in 60 seconds, it captures the excitement of adventure and the historic, almost mystical pursuit of take-off.

VarietyJake Gyllenhaal is set to produce and star as Leonard Bernstein in “The American,” with Cary Joji Fukunaga directing and producing.

Bron Studios will produce and back the film, which begins principal photography in the fall. Sierra/Affinity will handle international sales of the project during the Cannes Film Market.

The screenplay, from Michael Mitnick, is based on the biography “Leonard Bernstein” by Humphrey Burton. In five movements, like a symphony, “The American” follows Leonard Bernstein from conducting the New York Philharmonic at the impressive age of 25 through the meteoric rise to fame, all while struggling both personally and publicly to be everything that everyone expected him to be, most of all himself.

The project is an original idea, developed by Nine Stories, Gyllenhaal’s and Riva Marker’s New York-based production company. Gyllenhaal and Marker will produce alongside Bron’s Aaron L. Gilbert, Fukunaga’s Parliament of Owls and Martha Parker. Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media, Michael Mitnick and Adam Gopnik are executive producers.

Like many people, Leonard Bernstein found his way into my life and heart through ‘West Side Story’ when I was a kid,” said Gyllenhaal. “But as I got older and started to learn about the scope of his work, I began to understand the extent of his unparalleled contribution and the debt of gratitude modern American culture owes him. As a man, Bernstein was a fascinating figure—full of genius and contradiction—and it will be an incredible honor to tell his story with a talent and friend like Cary.

Bernstein’s artistic passions changed the way generations understood and appreciated music. It’s been wonderful collaborating with Michael and Jake on Bernstein’s story as we endeavor to capture both the iconic person and artist. Jake is the perfect partner to help bring this story to life and to play this legend,” said Fukunaga.

The role would mark another strong dramatic turn for Gyllenhaal who recently received rave reviews for another biopic, “Stronger,” in which he played a survivor from the Boston Marathon bombings.

Nine Stories’ most recently produced Paul Dano’s directorial debut “Wildlife.” The film, starring Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan, premiered to critical acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival and is the opening night film for the Cannes Critics’ Week.

Bron Studios’ “Leave No Trace” directed by Oscar nominee Debra Granik, premiered at Sundance and will be featured in this year’s Cannes Director’s Fortnight. “Tully,” directed by Jason Reitman and starring Charlize Theron, will be released by Focus on May 4.

Gyllenhaal and Nine Stories are represented by WME and Bloom Hergott. Cary Joji Fukunaga is represented by WME, Anonymous Content, and Lichter Grossman Nichols Adler & Feldman.
