With show business literally coursing through his veins, Gyllenhaal conquered limitations often imposed on other child actors by exceeding expectations. Beyond his good looks and chiseled physique, he has established himself as a charismatic chameleon in independent films and Hollywood blockbusters.
Gyllenhaal’s dramatic talent, however, is not limited to his work in front of the camera. He has proven himself to be a forceful presence on-stage and is currently preparing to make his television debut.

He is a man who prides himself on publicly exploring his creativity while privately maintaining his integrity.
