THE GOOD GIRL
JAKE GYLLENHAAL first garnered critical acclaim for his breakthrough
performance as the star of Joe Johnston's OCTOBER SKY, alongside Laura Dern
and Chris Cooper. The role earned him a Young Star Award nomination and a
nomination for Best Actor at the Young Artist Awards. He moved on to play the
title role in the fantasy thriller DONNIE DARKO, starring Drew Barrymore, Jena
Malone and Noah Wyle, directed by first-time helmer Richard Kelly. The film was
a favorite at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and Gyllenhaal was nominated for
an Independent Spirit Award for Best Actor.

AMAZING, with Catherine Keener and Brenda Blethyn. His additional film credits

In the spring of 2002, Gyllenhaal made an impressive stage debut in the
London production of "This Is Our Youth," opposite Hayden Christensen
and Anna Paquin. This fall, Gyllenhaal stars as the lead in Touchstone's
MOONLIGHT MILE, for director Brad Silberling, opposite Dustin Hoffman, Susan
