Jake Gyllenhaal Says Playing Mysterio in 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is 'Very Exciting'!

Jake Gyllenhaal stopped by The Late Show on Wednesday night (January 16) and talked about starring in indie films versus a big budget film from the Marvel universe.

The 37-year-old actor plays Quentin Beck / Mysterio in the upcoming film, Spider-Man: Far From Home, which just debuted its first trailer this week.

Elsewhere on the show, Jake chatted about his role in the off-Broadway play Sea Wall / A Life, in which he performs an intense monologue – Watch more after the cut!
