Jake Gyllenhaal Guest Stars in Vampire Weekend Video

Jake Gyllenhaal wears short shorts and shows off his tennis skills in Vampire Weekend‘s newest video, “Giving Up the Gun”!

The 28-year-old actor joins celebs Joe Jonas, RZA and Lil Jon in a series of cameos in the video.

“I was pretty surprised it all worked out,” the band’s frontman, Ezra Koenig, told Spinner. “Joe Jonas and Jake Gyllenhaal were both excellent — lot of improvisation and some surprisingly powerful serves.”

    @kaylie: He was born in 1980. In December, which means he’s 29 till then.

    He looked so relaxed and funny

    Joe shaking her hand and then wiping his hand on his shirt was cool.

  • annony

  • Beth

    Go Jakey! He has become sexy, funny, goofy and adorable again. It’s about time he shakes off the bad karma from that silly showmance he did for the past 2 years. Jake needs to rip his pants off more often.

  • slambang

    Como é que é? Vai estudar na Universidade ou nao? Aproveita a oportunidade que nao está fazendo nada e aproveita o tempo com alguma coisa útil em vez de ficar passiando com velha com dois filhos!
    Estudo de religioes deve ser um estudo interessante mais tem que saber outros idiomas também para ter acesso aos documentos históricos! Nao é um estudo fácil!

  • allie

    I know this is not the point but female is holding the racket totally wrong. It’s funny and distracting for someone who knows how to play tennis; they should told her how to hold it

  • Lana

    He was fantastic in Bubble Boy :)

    Se Jake tiver algum idioma a aprender, não será português. Infelizmente…

  • Penny

    Nice video, Jake is great!

  • se


    Gracas a Deus!
    Já afirmei que se tem 2 povos que nao se combinam absolutamente na faca da Terra estes povos sao O dos Estados Unidos da America e o Brasil.
    Espero que ele nao cometa a loucura de vir para o Brasil alguma vez pois é um país tao violento e corrupto quanto o país dele!
    Segundo porque igualmente como acontece no país dele, ele vai ser mal tratado por ser americano pois as pessoas odiam os americanos por lá!
