Last summer, Gyllenhaal established himself as a member of Hollywood’s new generation of action stars. In Fox’s THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, Gyllenhaal starred opposite Dennis Quaid in the futuristic film which depicted the devastating effects of global warming on Earth. This Christmas, he can be seen in the screen adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play PROOF for director John Madden. The Miramax film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins.

Gyllenhaal recently landed the coveted role of “Jack” in Focus Features’ adaptation of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. The film, which chronicles an intense relationship between two Wyoming stockmen, will be directed by Ang Lee and costars Heath Ledger. The high-profile project will go into production this summer.

Gyllenhaal was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for best actor in the critically acclaimed DONNIE DARKO. A favorite at the Sundance Film Festival, the New Market release combines elements of mystical fantasy and science fiction with teenage romance. The film, directed by first-time director Richard Kelly, co-stars Drew Barrymore, Jena Malone and Noah Wyle.

Gyllenhaal starred in another Sundance favorite in 2002, THE GOOD GIRL. In the dark comedy, he portrays a young man who falls in love and has a torid affair with a married woman (played by Jennifer Aniston.) The film is directed by Miguel Arteta, and also stars John C. Reilly, Zooey Deschanel, and Catherine O’ Hara. The film was distributed by Fox Searchlight.

Gyllenhaal also starred in the Touchstone film, MOONLIGHT MILE, written and directed by Brad Silberling. Set in New England in the early 70s, the unlikely love story revolved around a young man who finds himself lingering in the family home of his fiancee, after her untimely death. While grieving along with her parents, played by Dustin Hoffman and Susan Sarandon, he gets drawn into legal issues presented by a district attorney (Holly Hunter) seeking justice for the family, and finds himself falling in love with another woman against his own best intentions.

Marking his theater debut, Gyllenhaal appeared on the London stage with a starring role in Kenneth Lonergan’s revival of This Is Our Youth. The play, which was a critical sensation on Broadway, ran for eight weeks in London’s West End. Gyllenhaal portrayed a rich kid who spends a decadent weekend stealing, dealing, and consuming drugs along side Hayden Christensen and Anna Paquin. For the role, Gyllenhaal received an Evening Standard Theater Award in the category of “Outstanding Newcomer.”

Gyllenhaal’s other projects include Lions Gate Fims’ LOVELY AND AMAZING, a comedy starring Catherine Keener and Brenda Blethyn. The film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival and was released last summer. He was also seen in “Highway,” a story of self-discovery in which he stars opposite Jared Leto and Selma Blair as a pair of best friends who travel to Seattle after Kurt Cobain’s death to escape their dreary lives in Las Vegas.

Gyllenhaal also starred in the Walt Disney romantic comedy, BUBBLE BOY. The film is the story of his adventure outside the confines of his bubble as he goes after the woman he loves before she marries the wrong man. BUBBLE BOY also starred Swoosie Kurtz and Marley Shelton and was directed by Blair Hayes.

Gyllenhaal was first given notice for his heartwarming performance in the Universal film, OCTOBER SKY , directed by Joe Johnston. The film tells the triumphant story of Homer Hickman, Jr. (Gyllenhaal), a gifted high school student in rural West Virginia, who seemed destined to repeat his father’s harsh life in the coal mines until he turned his attention upward to the skies. The film also starred Chris Owen, William Lee Scott, Chad Lindberg and Laura Dern.

Romantic Comedy Actor – Ivan Sergei

Ivan Sergei has already made a name for himself in the independent film world with a star-making performance in “The Opposite of Sex.” In addition to starring in the romantic comedy “Jack & Jill,” he also has lead roles in two feature films.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Sergei got his proverbial big break at an open casting call for the Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheimer film “Dangerous Minds.” Of Italian and Dutch descent, Sergei donned a goatee and landed a role as Huero, one of the troubled high school students playing opposite Michelle Pfeiffer. After spending the next four months in Los Angeles working on the film alongside both actors and real-life gang members, he moved west and has been working steadily as an actor ever since.

Sergei’s breakout role came as the dim Adonis who is seduced by Christina Ricci’s character in the 1998 acerbic sex comedy “The Opposite of Sex,” also starring Lisa Kudrow, Martin Donovan and Lyle Lovett. With rave reviews at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival and an acclaimed theatrical release, “The Opposite of Sex” launched Sergei as a rising star in the world of independent film.

His other two big-screen projects were also produced outside the studio system. In the comedy “We Met on the Vineyard,” Sergei plays the romantic lead opposite Julianna Margulies as her character’s betrothed who gets cold feet the day before their wedding. Sergei can also be seen in the Touchstone comedy “Playing Mona Lisa,” with Alicia Witt. Additional feature film roles include a young deputy sheriff in the Western “Gunfighter’s Moon,” directed by Larry Ferguson.

On television, Sergei starred in the television movie “Once a Thief: Brother Against Brother” and the ensuing syndicated series “Once a Thief,” about a prolific Hong Kong action hero, bringing his stellar sense of comic timing to the role of a fast-talking, karate-chopping James Bond for the ’90s. He also appeared in the television movies “Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?” and “If Someone Had Known” and had guest-starring roles on series such as “Touched by an Angel,” “Cybill,” “Party of Five” and “Kindred: The Embraced.”
