Jake Gyllenhaal Cast in 'Mississippi Grind'Jake Gyllenhaal has his next gig all lined up. The handsome leading man will star in Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden’s, ‘Mississippi Grind.’


Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who wrote the film and  directed Gosling to an Oscar nomination in Half Nelson and most recently made It’s Kind of a Funny Story, wanted Gyllenhaal for the part and got him.


Jake Gyllenhall can act, there is no question about that, but after a few big budget flops, Love and Other Drugs and Prince of Persia, its nice to see him return to his indie roots.


Mississippi Grind tell the story of a down-on-his-luck gambler facing crushing debt, who teams up with Gyllenhaal’s character, a gambling addict, in an attempt to change his luck. The two then set off on a road trip through the South with visions of winning back what has been lost.


Jake Gyllenhaal can next be seen in David Ayer’s End of Watch. Check out that films new Red band Trailer Here.
