Jake Gyllenhaal At Cannes

Jake Gyllenhaal and cast are in Cannes to support his film "Zodiac" which was reportedly entered in the competition phase of the film festival. The film is based on the true story of the quest of Robert Graysmith, a San Francisco Chronicle cartoonist, to capture a 1960's serial killer known as the Zodiac. Gyllenhall details his experience working with Robert Downey Jr:

"A very good, typical actor has about 25 really interesting choices and ideas within a minute. And then there's Robert Downey Jr. who has, I would say, 500 to 750 ideas," Gyllenhaal said after the press screening of the film at Cannes.
"Some people would call that madness. I would call that genius," he said.
"You're running around an actor and then they're chasing you, all of a sudden -- that's a wonderful thing where rhythms are all over the place, it's like playing jazz with somebody."

If you haven't seen this film, it is worth the $$, great acting and great story.
