Actor Jake Gyllenhaal plays the lead role in the movie "Nightcrawler" and some social media critics are very impressed by the performance of this talented actor. He lost 20 pounds to develop the gaunt, "haunted" look of an ambitious young man who becomes part of Los Angeles' freelance crime journalism in which the reporters are literally chasing down stories in the middle of the night with their own television teams.
In the film the sound of a police siren is literally a potential financial jackpot as the crime journalist who reaches first and is able to find the best story can turn a victims's tragedy into a lucrative payout for themselves.
Jake Gyllenhaal in the trailer is 'scary' his performance is so exceptional as he combines his leading man good looks which have made him one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood with a performance which is magnetic and intoxicating.
Some social media entertainment observers note that this movie might become one of the major hits of the Fall in 2014 and it reaffirms his status as one of the most talented leading men in Hollywood. He exudes charm, ambition, hunger and a "dark, sinister" side that gets many thinking he is the equal of those who roam the mean streets of Los Angeles.
The "Donnie Darko" star quite frankly is so stellar in the trailer according to some social media fans and entertainment observers that it is almost impossible for viewers to take their eyes of him as he dominates the role and rumours suggest that the trailer is similar to his performance throughout the movie.
He is an actor whose good looks are often the first thing people talk about but his acting in "Nightcrawler" is one that will likely bring the focus to his outstanding acting range and his ability to make fans scared and attracted to his character at the same time.
Jake Gyllenhaal might have a box office hit and critically acclaimed film in "Nightcrawler" as of October 2014.
