Jake Gyllenhaal Reveals How His 'Sunday' Video Was Filmed!

Jake Gyllenhaal is getting ready for his return to Broadway and he just released a cool video of him singing from the musical Sunday in the Park with George.

Now, the 36-year-old actor is revealing the cool details of how director Cary Joji Fukunaga filmed the video inside the newly restored Hudson Theatre.

“Yes, we thought about an easier, shorter song, but why not pick the most difficult song! [Laughs.]” Jake told W Magazine about singing the complicated song “Finishing the Hat” in the video.

“We did five or six takes of me onstage at the Hudson Theatre. We wanted the video to feel imperfect. Cary was dangling from a wire hanging from the top of the theater and I am on the stairs trying to remember every word of this amazing song. It was mad. But that’s why it was so fun,” he said.

Pictured inside: Jake and his longtime friend Greta Caruso spending some time together on Sunday (February 5) in New York City.

Jake Gyllenhaal's 'Sunday in the Park' Will Not Compete at Tony Awards 2017

Our hopes of seeing Jake Gyllenhaal at the 2017 Tony Awards in June have been shattered as it was just announced that his upcoming musical revival of Sunday in the Park with George will not be submitted for awards consideration.

The 36-year-old actor is returning to Broadway to star in the musical alongside Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford.

“The producers of Sunday in the Park with George will not be submitting Hudson Theatre’s engagement of this New York City Center production for awards eligibility,” the producers said in a statement. “With a season so full of tremendous, soon-to-be long-running new musicals and revivals, the producers feel this extremely limited, special run of Sunday stands most appropriately outside of any awards competition. The production is nevertheless proud to be part of such a landmark Broadway season.”

While it was not mentioned, another reason for the decision could be that the producers don’t want to give away 1,600 free tickets to Tony voters as the show will only run for 10 weeks, leaving little time to recoup the investment, according to Variety.
