Jake Gyllenhaal in Drag

Jake Gyllenhaal dressed in drag for his opening monologue on Saturday Night Live yesterday. Jake, 26, sang a fantastic falsetto as Dreamgirls‘ Effie (American Idol‘s Jennifer Hudson) to the tune of “And I Am Telling You (I’m Not Going).” HILARIOUS!!!!!! You must watch Jake‘s song and dance below. Must! Must! Must!

    And Jake can sing! There’s gotta be some stage show they can put him in…no. Not Dreamgirls. Too Hairy. And those arms.

  • M.

    That was great!!! So funny!!!

  • Jalini

    I have been a fan of this fantastic actor ever since I saw him in Bubble Boy and have seen everything he has been in since and prior. Now I just love Jake even more. Such talent and good looks and no diva tude in sight. Wow he is such a funny guy. Love him.

  • krungkrung

    saw it last night n man that boy can sing, Jake is 1 talented boy…..

  • Desert

    That was just BRILLIANT! :)

  • Desert

    That was simply BRILLIANT!

  • Desert

    Oh shit, didn’t mean to do that.

  • Angelique

    I’m shocked. That guy can sing..

  • Kath

    Sooooo funny!! And I love people that can get stuff on youtube so quickly. I put out the call for the opening monologues last night around 2AM EST and I had it by 3AM….love it!! Now I’m going to go watch the rest of the show.

  • black

    My oh my….he´s even more mucled now!

  • bdj

    That was too funny and will go down as a SNL classic, along with that other classic,
    “______in the box”. However, I am sure that Jennifer Hudson is not crying in her sleep after seeing this performance.

  • Amy

    DAY-umn, boy can sing! Totally shits on Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Holliday. And I ain’t even gonna speak of Beyonce.
    No, in all seriousness, he’s pretty good. And he’s been workin’ out.

  • Farina

    He can sing! :o

  • Masina

    OMG!!! He is FABULOUS! It’s amazing, this guy can sing……!


    WHO KNEW?! That was HOT and FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Good job! Very funny!

  • Aunt Lovie


  • Original jpf

    He was amazing! That boy got some pipes on him, and I hope SNL continues these little surprises. BTW, I bet Jennifer Hudson roared! I don’t think Beyonce would have if it was her he was imitating, but Jennifer seems more down to earth.

    Thanks Jared & Audrey


  • Stacey

    I saw this last night on SNL. He was great. I also love Fred Armisen as Steve Jobs talking about the iphone. “One. BILLION. Songs. BILLION. With a B.” Although I watch it through thick and thin, the new cast is really coming into their own. Kristin Wiig, the new chick is great. The show is getting hot again.

  • oriana

    he is so funnym i never imagine that

  • piper, with a low

    He is an absolute cutie!!! And funny as h@ll!!

    Got nice guns, too!

  • tanique

    i really didn’t need another reason to love him. his voice was a nice surprise.

  • Jordan

    that was quite possibly the dumbest episode of SNL I have ever seen. Him singing was the funniest part and it wasn’t all that funny.

  • 8==========D~~~ (@-=)

    he is no justin timberlake. justins SNL apperence was by far better than jakes. the singing skit was funny, but i dont know how good of a singer he is, like everyone is saying. im just looking forward to justin returning, cause he is by far more entertainning than anyone else ive seen on there in a long time. jeremy piven will be on next week.. love him, i think he’ll be great, better than jake

  • Megan

    lol, I saw that last night! FUNNY!

  • mary

    Very Funny :D :D :D :D :D

  • tanique

    some nights the skits are just REALLY weak. i didn’t laugh at all of jakes that was for sure, i love him but the writers fall down more than not with this show.

    i also think they happen to write the really ood stuff for certain people. alec baldwin’s skits are always on point. some skits need to die, like the lazer cat crap. what is that?

  • angelah

    who wouldve thought he could sing! damn he sings hella better than I do esp on that last note..:lol:

  • Lil

    Jakie was sooooooooooo cute last night and his arms are soooooooooo cut.

  • dewt

    OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE!! THIS GUY HAS A VERY HOMELY FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HOMELY, HOMELY, HOMELY

  • Shauna

    New fan here. He is totally amazing. He can really sing (I know everyone else has already said this) but- WOW! What a great sense of humor, but the skit surpassed funny because he did the song so incredibly well. He really does need to do something with that talent!

  • carmen

    WOW!!!! Thats is just so funny and yeah he can sing…

  • sasha

    he was sooo funny last night. one of my favorite newer snl episodes. and yeah, he is a good singer lol.

  • Bravo Jake


    I love me some Jake. I love guys who don’t take themselves seriously.

  • Mink

    Wow! He can really carry a tune! And that was just hilarious – that he did it so well just made it so much funnier!

  • Marie

    Jake was really good in that opening monologue, but c’mon, people!! This show SUCKS so bad. Those first few minutes were the only time we cracked a smile. These writers are so lame. Every week it’s the same thing – they take an incredibly talented entertainer and make him/her look really bad. I have to commend Justin Timberlake cuz he’s the only person besides Alec Baldwin to actually create something better than the material. I can’t believe these performers/writers are making a such a great salary and slapping themselves on the back every week for turning out this crap. Seriously.

  • Lori

    Thanks Jared, SNL was wonderful and hilarious last night!
    Jakes arms are insane!

  • Liz

    jake was good lookin last night, i mean, he always is, but man, those arms were awesome!

    I’m glad he was able to show people last night that he was able to do many roles, as he has said he can.

    and the fact that he can sing better than most people i know, or listen to on the radio makes me love him even more.

    go jake! here’s to many more years of your greatness!

  • Angel Huang

    Great performance!
    he can consider to record the album..and if he will….I will buy it

  • geniass

    OMFG! Jake! Can’t stop laughing!

  • kae

    I LOVE his arms!

  • anonnny

    instant classic.

  • alero

    Jake was great. Sadly the rest of the show did not live up to the opening.

  • Lynn

    JAKE G. is gorgeous, talented, funny, confident and smart… and yeah now we know he can sing. What a fabulous hilarious, stirring performance. I’ve not seen Dreamgirls yet, but now I really must. Dreamgirls’ producers ought to pay Jake for such great publicity. This Dreamboy is golden!

  • Baptiste

    Cae bien el tío, posee talento y aparente buena disposición.

  • marzbar

    jake looks hot in a dress!! =)
