NO MORE MR BRIGHTSIDE?
As dark, damaged, deranged or delusional as many of his characters have been, Gyllenhaal has had lighter roles, in comedy dramas such as The Good Girl and Love & Other Drugs, though even these leant towards more shady laughs. And let’s not forget his holidays on the Costa Del Blockbusta with The Day After Tomorrow and Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time. These, again, made vast sums of money, even against their enormous production budgets; in fact, the latter is still the most successful video-game adaptation ever.
Nightcrawler is at cinemas nationwide from 27 October
