I’ve been banging the Gyllenhaal drum for a few months now, thanks to his remarkable run of films since the disastrous back-to-back showings in Prince of Persia and Love & Other Drugs. People forget, however, that Gyllenhaal was nominated for an Oscar for Brokeback Mountain and he might have deserved one for Zodiac, and his under-the-radar performances in End of Watch, Prisoners and Enemy over the last two years have been nothing short of outstanding. He’s come so far and done so much that it’s easy to forget that this is the kid with the break-out performance in Donnie Darko that we all used to love.

Right now, I think he’s the most underappreciated actor in Hollywood, and the last few years, he’s been quietly putting together a filmography that rivaled that of Matthew McConaughey’s heading into his Oscar-winning performance in Dallas Buyers Club. Nightcrawler looks like Gyllenhaal’s Dallas Buyers Club, and after you spend 45 seconds with his gaunt, terrifying looking character hustling for a job, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Jesus, that looks outstanding. And Nic Pizzolatto, if you’re listening and haven’t nailed down your True Detective season two cast, give this guy a look. He can play one helluva cop, too. Look no further than Prisoners, End of Watch and Zodiac.

Jake Gyllenhaal, Casey Affleck, and Michelle Williams for TD2.

Think about it.
