Becomes famous for his acting on the big screen features, Jake Gyllenhaal is considering to make his stage debut, starring in the political stage drama "Farragut North," to open this fall.
Still thinking on the offer, the actor is expected to give his decision by the end of this week. The show's producer, Jeffrey Richards, confirmed to People a private reading featuring the actor was held at the end of last week (ends June 8th) in New York.
If Gyllenhaal does sign on, he's expected to play the role of "a young, idealistic communications director who works for an inspiring, though unorthodox, presidential candidate. During the campaign, his career is done in by more seasoned politicos who thrive on poisonous partisan politics, dirty tricks and back-stabbing."
Per New York Post, "Farragut North" was created by Beau Willimon, "a playwright [who] worked on Howard Dean's presidential campaign."
