Jake Gyllenhaal and Brían F. O’Byrne on Stage

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Jake Gyllenhaal and Brían F. O’Byrne discuss the Roundabout Theatre Company’s new Off-Broadway production of “If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet,” a new play by Nick Payne. It’s about a regular family stuck somewhere between knowing what the problem is and doing something about it. Fifteen-year-old Anna's weight makes her a natural target for bullies, but when her mother transfers Anna to the school where she teaches in order to protect her daughter, it only makes things worse. As Anna gets suspended for retaliating against a bully, her estranged uncle Terry, a heartbroken drifter, arrives unannounced and reaches out to Anna in a way that no one ever has.

Jake is one of my favorites actors. I think he's incredibly talented and one of the reasons I enjoy is the variety of roles he chooses. I'm curious to know if he feels there are more interesting roles on the stage or film?
