Jake Gyllenhaal Looks Skinny And Gaunt In New Trailer
Hollywood star lost 20lbs in weight for role in Nightcrawler...
Jake Gyllenhaal appears almost unrecognisable in the trailer for his new movie Nightcrawler.
The normally hunky Hollywood star looks gaunt and drawn in the movie, in which he plays aspiring crime reporter Lou Bloom.
Out of work, his character discovers the dark underside of US news reporting - aiming to make money from getting to crime scenes before anyone else.
But the trailer shows how his enthusiasm to secure the scoop sees him cross several lines and end up in trouble with the law himself - implicated in a murder.
Gyllenhaal has previously revealed that he lost 20lbs in weight to play the role.
He co-stars with Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed in the thriller - which opens on 17 October in the UK.
