The Call Sheet sifts through the day's glut of Hollywood news to find the stories even non-industry types care about. Today: Jake Gyllenhaal takes to the stage, Bravo gives us the goods, as does Magic Mike.
Jake Gyllenhaal, America's favorite bear cub, will be debuting on the American stage this August. He'll play a foul-mouthed drifter uncle to an unhappy overweight girl in the Roundabout Theatre Company's American premiere of If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, by Nick Payne. So it's basically any girl's fantasy! Your life sucks and your parents are jerks but then Jake Gyllenhaal shows up and rescues you. Of course in (hopefully most of) those fantasies Gyllenhaal isn't a relative, so they can, like, make out and stuff, but this will have to do. Obviously many people were hoping that Gyllenhaal's New York theater debut would be in a revival of Naked Boys Singing!, but, again, this will have to do. [Playbill]
Speaking of good-looking men, Bravo has announced yet another slate of shows in development, and one of them is called Untitled Male Model Project and is about, yup, male models. Adam DiVello, who was behind The Hills, will produce the project, which follows several top-tier male models as they navigate the biz and try to figure out tricky life situations like shoe tying and how do numbers work. (Male models are dumb. Ha.) This could be interesting! Remember how that show Make Me a Supermodel became mostly a story about two male models who were maybe falling in love? Maybe this is just a continuation of that. Bring back Bronnie! Other shows on the development slate include a show about divorce lawyers hilariously and cruelly called Splitsville, a show about rich heirs in Palm Beach, and a show about wealthy Long Island "boomerang" kids who live with their parents after college. Terrific. Bravo: Ruining your entire weekends since 2003. [Deadline]
