NO, NOT REALLY

Jake Gyllenhaal Turns Serial Killer

Actor Jake Gyllenhaal has given up the gun and taken up a fencing sword in a new music video for the French band The Shoes. In “Time to Dance,” Gyllenhaal plays a serial killer who knocks off victims by slicing throats, chasing them up fire escapes, and more nefarious acts. We’re even given an intense close-up of the Donnie Darko star getting a close shave. The electro-pop video is not Gyllenhaal’s first venture into the music world—he played a tennis player in Vampire Weekend’s “Giving Up the Gun.”
