Highway to Oscar?
Jake Gyllenhaal and Jared Leto shared the screen in Highway, a straight-to-video road trip movie that tracks Pilot (Jake) and Jack (Jared) on the run from goons and towards Seattle. And now they share the cover of The Hollywood Reporter's Actors issue, kicking off the magazine's awards season series on filmmakers in the Academy's sights.
The unconventional movie never made it to theaters and was picked by Entertainment Weekly as Jake's worst movie. As Jake and Jared celebrate and discuss more critically acclaimed roles, you have to wonder if they did any reminiscing. Or if they will be celebrating their nominations in a few months…
