The 2002 Young Hollywood Award winner for Breakthrough Performance - Male, seems unstoppable. Although his audition for the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in "Batman Begins" (2005) was unsuccessful, Jake continued his acting career as his several up-coming movies are primed to rock the world.

Also appeared in two more flicks of "Proof" and "Jarhead" during the same year "Brokeback" hit the theaters, Jake kept striving high after taking a brief pause on the big screen as he returned in 2007 through a pair of high-profile features namely "Zodiac" and "Rendition." Both were thriller films, the former found the hunk played a political cartoonist investigating a murder case while the latter one saw him star opposite Reese Witherspoon as a CIA analyst in Cairo who witnesses an unorthodox interrogation of a foreign national by the Egyptian secret police.
