Jake Gyllenhaal Ready To Sing In A Damn Musical

May 21st, 2010 // 1 Comment

After getting all macho in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Jake Gyllenhaal is ready for some singing and dancing! The now buffed-up actor is ready to get light-footed in the new movie version of the musical Damn Yankees. In the movie, Jake will play Joe Hardy, a baseball fan who sells his soul to the devil (Jim Carrey) to play with the Yankees.

“It’s definitely something that’s in development,” Gyllenhaal said, pictured May 20 leaving a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live in L.A.. “I sing. I’ve
been singing since I was a little child.”

Make us swoon all over again!

    Actually, the character Joe Hardy plays for the Washington Senators. He sells his soul to The Devil to become a power hitter because he’s tired of losing to the Damn Yankees.
