Tom Holland is dashing to be the primary to want Jake Gyllenhaal a cheerful 40th birthday
Jake Gyllenhaal was just 40 years old and his Spider-Man: Far from home Co-star Tom Holland wanted to be the first to wish him a happy birthday. Holland posted a clip of herself on Instagram staring Gyllenhaal in the eyes in slow motion while soothing music played. In just a few hours, the humorous video was viewed more than 8 million times.
"I had to be the first. Happy birthday, buddy miss you," writes Holland in the headline.
Gyllenhaal made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut while starring Tom Holland in last year's superhero sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home. He played the villain Quentin Beck, also known as Mysterio. Although there are plans for apparently every other Spider-Man character to appear in Spider-Man 3, Gyllenhaal's Mysterio is not currently part of the party. That makes sense considering what happened to the character the last time we saw him in Far From Home, but the Multiverse still leaves the door wide open for a return.
Together with Spider-Man Jake Gyllenhaal is also known for a variety of other recognized roles. He plays the teenage title in the jaw-dropping movie Donnie Darko, a cult classic from 2001 that is still widely debated by fans to this day. Gyllenhaal was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Jack Twist in Brokeback Mountain, a romantic drama starring Heath Ledger as his lover. Some of Gyllenhaal's other memorable roles include parts in Zodiac, Nightcrawler, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Nocturnal Animals, and Velvet Buzzsaw.
There are a lot of upcoming films in the works with Gyllenhaal on board so we'll be seeing him in action again soon. He stars with Bill Burr, Ethan Hawke, Riley Keough and Paul Dano in The Guilty, a crime thriller directed by Antoine Fuqua. Some of his other upcoming titles include roles in David Leitch's The Division with Jessica Chastain; Edward Berger's Rio with Benedict Cumberbatch; and Michael Bay's ambulance with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Eiza Gonzalez.
Countless fans celebrate on social media with Holland Gyllenhaal at the age of 40. A fan wrote: "The happiest birthdays of the most beautiful, talented and funniest actor of all time, Jake Gyllenhaal! Don't worry."
