Upon hearing news that Jake Gyllenhaal is loosely attached to a remake of Damn Yankees, we decided to investigate his singing credentials. Turns out they’re pretty good! Here’s a playlist.
In Bubble Boy, he performs a howling rock version of the Land of the Lost theme.
While hosting the Sundance Film Festival awards ceremony, he and Zooey Deschanel sing and dance to a version of ”That’s Entertainment.”
Gyllenhaal shows off his falsetto at the Palm Springs Film Festival, where he performs the Bee Gees’ ”Night Fever.”
He nails Dreamgirls’ ”And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” in drag on SNL. If this was a warm-up for Damn Yankees, we’re in.
