Jake Gyllenhaal isn’t known as a crooner, but that may change this month. The actor stars in the upcoming musical “Sunday in the Park With George,” which comes to Broadway in just a few weeks. As a sort of preview, the actor has shared a video of himself singing “Finishing the Hat” that Cary Joji Fukunaga directed. Watch below.
“This is what happens when Riva Marker (the badass president of NineStories) and I invite Cary Joji Fukunaga to rehearsals for our new Broadway musical. Check out this video we made!” wrote the former Donnie Darko on Facebook. The actor was most recently seen in “Nocturnal Animals” and, in addition to “Sundays in the Park” (which opens on February 23), has several films slated for release this year.

You've got to admit it: Casting one of the kids from Stranger Things was a genius move by the makers of the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Stephen King's It. The Netflix series was a love letter to 80s movies like Stand By Me, E.T., The Goonies, and Silver Bullet- with very distinct nods to King's ouevre throughout its first season.

Well, I'm still burned by the fact that this was going to be an epic two-part movie that was written and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective Season 1, Beasts of No Nation). He was all set to bring his phenomenal skills to It before he had a falling out with Warner Bros. that led to his departure from the project.
